Susan Braun is the mother of three wonderful girls, and the author of Girls in White Dresses – a wonderful blog about all things parenting. She’s also a long time reader of “Who Put the Ketchup in the Medicine Cabinet?”. Without mentioning names, let’s just say that Susan is very familiar with inattention.
A while ago, Susan contacted me about a new children’s book she had written called, “Sophie, Pay Attention!”. It’s about a little girl who has trouble attending. Because she’s so scatterbrained, her family sometimes doesn’t pay attention to everything Sophie says, either.
It’s a great read for our kids. They’ll identify with how Sophie truly does want to pay attention, and how she feels when she’s misunderstood by those who love her. It also weaves in the story of another inattentive girl – the servant girl Rhoda who left Saint Peter standing at the door.
