I’ve highlighted Maria Dismondy’s work before on Growing Book by Book. She does an amazing job of creating books for kids that are infused with positive character traits. So, when she contacted me about her newest book, Spoonful of Sweetness, I was delighted to showcase it here for her blog tour.

Spoonful of Sweetness: and other delicious manners is Maria’s first board book for the very young reader (birth to age 3). The book highlights all of the things babies do that illustrate the positive qualities and manners we want children to display such as kindness, responsibility and courage. Illustrator, Ronnie Rooney, playfully illustrates how babies express these traits. For example, a baby waving hello is paired with the word friendship. I also love that the pictures of the babies showcase a variety of races. It’s a book we’ve been reading in our house a lot!
Dismondy believes that it’s never too early to start modeling and teaching our kids positive character traits and I couldn’t agree more. This book is a great stepping stone to reaching that goal! Spoonful of Sweetness would make a great baby shower book to give a new family!
