MR. TWEED'S GOOD DEEDS: A BOOK REVIEW



Y'all. I want to share with you another book I don't hate to read to my kids. It's Mr. Tweed's Good Deeds, written and illustrated by Jim Stoten. It's a hunt and find book. Gotta love those. They captivate kids' attention like none other. And, as you can see, Silas and Enid were certainly captivated. So much so that Silas forgot he "doesn't like his sister". Yeah, looks like he really can't stand her.

That's pure disgust if I've ever seen it. Anyway, back to Mr. Tweed. This book is great for many reasons. It's entertaining, the illustrations are killer, and to top it all off, it's infused with the great moral lesson of helping others. 

Mr. Tweed goes out for a stroll but comes across friends who need his help finding a variety of objects: socks, flowers, arrows, balloons, and many others. 


After Mr. Tweed helps all his friends in the neighborhood, they throw him a party to show their thanks, which I think is nice because it teaches gratitude. Such a great little book for kids.  

"What a great day helping people!" Mr. Tweed thought.   


Mr. Tweed's Good Deeds is geared toward ages 3-5, but I'd venture to say kids of all ages could enjoy it. I can definitely see Tristin getting in on the fun and she's 11! This, like the Press Here book we reviewed recently, is another one that Silas or Tristin can read to Enid and they can enjoy together (without much of anything from me).  Win, win. 


Thanks so much to Flying Eye Books for sharing Mr. Tweed with us!!! We all (including myself) are crazy about this one! For other absolutely beautiful and down right cool children's books, check out the Flying Eye Books website. You will not be disappointed.

  1. Thanks for all the great book recommendations! I'm a nanny to four children of similar ages as your crew, so I'm always on the lookout for (quiet) activities that they can all enjoy. They LOVE the Ed Emberley books!

    1. Funny how they get stuck on one book! And by funny I mean mind-numbing.
