Faux Paw by Julia Dweck

faux paw

Author Julia Dweck has certainly done it again with this wonderful story! I had the pleasure of reading Faux Paw to my boys and it was loved by us all.

Faux Paw is the wonderful story of Waldon Bear, a little boy who wants to be a bear. And a mother’s love and encouragement to her son. Her inspirational lesson that her little boy can be whatever he wants to be including a “bear”. Is a lesson that all of us mothers instill in our children. Waldon’s teacher Mrs. Hunter tries to convince Waldon that ““Human children grow up to be human adults, not animals!” But Waldon thankfully refuses to listen.

I especially loved how the mom dresses up as a bear as well to show her son that she is willing to support him no matter what he chooses to become. This story was specially dear to me because this is a lesson that I teach my boys everyday. I always tell them that with determination they can become whatever they choose in life, and it doesn’t matter what anyone thinks. It was wonderful to me that my oldest son said to me at the end of the book…”Mommy, you are right! We CAN be anything we want.”

The illustrations in this story are wonderful and colorful, It definitely kept the attention of my little niece who is 1.

The encouragement that the mommy in this story shows her son is truly inspiring. Faux Paw is definitely a book that every family should read.

Faux Paw by Julia Dweck will be available on Amazon tomorrow 10/22/13. Be sure to reserve your copy today.
