Learning to Share: Zoe’s Room (No Sisters Allowed) [Book Review] ~Plus~ 3 Winner #Giveaway

Reading Zoe's Room

A lot of changes have been happening the last few months and with the addition of a new sister it was time for our oldest two to share a room. The two girls will eventually share a room, but a nursery will be necessary when the baby leaves the master bedroom and needs her own space for naps and bedtime. I was going to wait to move my toddler until things had settled a little with the new baby, but he initiated the move to his new trundle just two weeks after she was born. I was skeptical whether it was going to work right away and although his naps have been shorter and more frustrating at times, he has done well.

My five-year-old was excited and they both seemed to enjoy the company after having their own spaces for the past couple of years, but there are definitely moments when it is hard to share. My daughter frequently makes signs that she tapes on their door warning him not to enter if she is working on a fort or other project she is afraid he is going to ruin. This book came at the perfect time for us while we were going through this transition, but the overall theme focuses on sharing, so it is not necessarily specific to sharing a room with a sibling.

Zoe's RoomAbout the book

Zoe rules as Queen of the Universe — or at least, her room! — in this sweet, funny companion to Zoe Gets Ready.

Zoe is the Queen of the whole Universe … but her favorite place in the Universe is her own room, where she hosts tea parties, builds empires out of blocks, and gazes out upon the stars.

Then her parents announce that her little sister Addie is moving in to Zoe’s room. Little sisters aren’t good at tea parties (too rude), block-building (too clumsy), and starwatching (just plain too young!). So the Queen’s new roommate is a royal pain . . . until Zoe discovers that even her smallest subjects can be useful in a storm! For ages 3-5 years.

As some of you may have seen over on the Facebook page, Daddy came home early from Afghanistan and in addition to helping around the house and with the kids, he has been able to give the kids extra reading time and they love it! Learn more about the release by watching the trailer below and find retailers and free activity sheets online.
