Cassandra Lennox here, author of Nursery Rhymes for Modern Times!
As the excitement of the holidays is upon us, sometimes we forget to slow down and take a look around at all there is to truly appreciate and celebrate.
There is something beautiful is being able to appreciate not only the present (meaning TIME, not just gifts!) but also the traditions of the past and dreams of the future…
As I received a package in the mail for my littlest kiddos the other day, I said to my husband “I had something very similar when I was little and it was one of my FAVORITE toys. There is something REALLY special about giving my kids a modern version of something I grew up with.”
Then it hit me. That is EXACTLY the feeling the Mama Kangaroo books are evoking in parents and grandparents.
My heart soared with joy.
We are embracing tradition while still appreciating that it’s an ever-changing world.
Take a few moments this holiday to recognize the ways you are holding onto tradition and creating new ones. Embrace and enjoy each moment, each gift… whether that gift be created with words, with love, or wrapped in a big red bow.
Happiest of Holidays from Mama Kangaroo, her Kangaroo Kids, and of course from myself, Cassandra Lennox.
Dream Big and Chase Those Dreams!
Love, C. Lennox
