What happens when an adventurous little boy just tries to be helpful? More trouble than his mother ever imagined! Every once in a while, a special book comes along that is adored by children and absolutely treasured by adults. I'll Do Better Tomorrow, I Promise, by author Maurine Reynolds Adamek, cleverly captures the amusing and confusing experiences of every child -- and the often, frustrating experiences of every parent. It will have you laughing out loud and wiping a tear from your eye as you see yourself in the pages of this delightful little book.
I'll Do Better Tomorrow, I Promise is a charming, funny, touching story for children, parents, grandparents, and teachers alike. The timeless values of family, love, patience and forgiveness make this a book you'll want to read again and again. Learn more at the author's Facebook page.
This story reminded me of the "Little Critter" books I used to read with my children when they were small, but this sweet picture book also brings God into the story. I love how the whole book is written in the form of a prayer -- and Annalee Schubert's adorable illustrations capture the sweet, mischievous, earnest little boy.
