I really enjoyed reading this book to the boys. I picked it from the library because I want to read books to him that inspire his imagination. This book talks about Slim’s hat saving towns with magic.
It is a book that is a little long for a child that is Goose’s age but Monkey loved listening to me read and I’m trying to inspire that in Goose too. After the first time reading it Monkey was able to tell me what the book was about. You could tell that he really enjoyed it.
It also teaches that you can be just a normal person and strolling through life when bad things happen to people around you. When this happens you have to choose are you going to be the person that runs away or the person that is going to stay and help. Slim was the guy that stayed and helped which I think is the best type of person we can be.
God puts us in situations that require us to make these tough choices and I love that we can read a fun book like Tornado Slim and the Magic Cowboy Hat by Bryan Langdo to help teach these type of important life lessons.
