A few weeks ago we had the pleasure to receive a Tacky Box to review with our kiddos. Now a days with the way the world is our kiddos are subject to a lot of “tacky” words and situations that aren’t good. As a family we read the book Max’s Magnificent choice and all our kiddos took turns decorating their tacky box. Here’s a little bit of information about Tacky Box just in case you missed my first post.
ABOUT TACKY BOX
A mother and grandmother duo created Margo’s (Max’s) Magnificent Choice, a book sold with The Tacky Box Set, which is an effective parenting tool as well as a fun read for children.
The two books – gender specific to the child but otherwise the same – illustrate the negative effect of tacky words and behaviors and the rewards of choosing kindness. Margo’s (Max’s) Magnificent Choice is a 32-page hardcover book. Each page has a brightly colored original watercolor painting that will capture the imagination and interest of young children. The fun story is an affirmation of the power of choosing to be kind and introduces children to the concept of locking up unkind words and actions in the tacky box and never using them again.
Through the pages of these beautifully illustrated books, children will follow Margo (Max) the Monkey as they learn the value of choosing kind words over tacky words. Boys and girls will want to emulate the monkey’s magnificent choice to refrain from repeating tacky language that he or she is sure to hear.
A wise old owl equips Margo (Max) with a Tacky Box to help her (him) lock up undesirable words and remove them from heart and mind. After reading the book, parents can present their child with his or her own authentic Tacky Box. The act of decorating the Tacky Box transforms the box into the child’s personal property.
The Tacky Box becomes a visual tool to help remind children to choose kind words and get rid of undesirable ones. Parents will be amazed at the effectiveness of writing the tacky word on a piece of paper and putting it in the box. Children become the example of good manners and a kind heart.
The Tacky Box Set includes a hardback copy of Margo’s (Max’s) Magnificent Choice, an authentic, stamped 5”x8” wooden Tacky Box, a note pad with the image of Max and Margo, and suggestions for use from the authors. For optimal success, all three must work together.
Since we have had the Tacky Box our kiddos have been saying the word “Tacky” more. Anytime they hear or see something that they think is not good they come home and write it down and put it in their box. They have been pretty excited about it and I love that they like it. I think it is an awesome product and would be great for any family. =)
