Gimmee! Gimmee! Gimmee!

 ¡Dame! ¡Dame! ¡Dame! 


King Whatever-You-Want and Queen As-You-Please lived in the Kingdom of Me-Me-Me! They made two BIG mistakes raising their daughter. King Whatever-You-Want said, “You can have whatever you want!” Queen As-You-Please said, “You can do as you please!” And Princess Gimmee wanted everything! Princess Gimmee had too many clothes, too many toys, and too much candy. But, the more she had, the more she wanted, and the fewer clothes, toys, and candy were left for the other children in the Kingdom. Soon Princess Gimmee had everything and the others had nothing. When the King and Queen realized she was a spoiled princess, they knew they had to do something. But what? And might it be too late? Gimmee! Gimmee! Gimmee!  Is the comic and wise tale of what happens when a child never gets told, “No,” and can’t understand that sharing and caring make a child far happier than grabbing and crabbing. Find out if Princess Gimmee changes her behavior. Do you think she also changes her name? Your child will want you to read it again and again. Gimmee! Gimmee! Gimmee!


El Rey Lo-Que-Tú-Quieras y La Reina Como-Te-Plazca vivían en El Reino de Mí- Mí-Mí. Ellos cometieron dos GRANDES errores al criar a su hija. El Rey le dijo: – “¡Puedes tener lo que tú quieras!”. La Reina Como-Te-Plazca dijo: – “¡Puedes hacer lo que te plazca!”. La Princesa Dame quería todo. La Princesa Dame tenía demasiada ropa, demasiados juguetes y demasiados dulces, pero, cuanto más tenía, más quería; y menos ropa, juguetes y dulces quedaban para los otros niños del Reino. Pronto La Princesa Dame lo tenía todo y los demás no tenían nada. Cuando El Rey y La Reina se dieron cuenta de que era una princesa mimada, supieron que tenían que hacer algo. ¿Pero qué? ¿Podría ser demasiado tarde? ¡Dame! ¡Dame! ¡Dame!  

es la cómica y sabia historia de lo que sucede cuando a un niño nunca se le dice “No”, y no puede entender que compartir y cuidar hace a un niño mucho más feliz que agarrar todo y quejarse. Descubra si La Princesa Dame cambia su actitud. ¿Piensas que ella también cambia su nombre? Sus hijos querrán que se la lea una y otra vez. ¡Dame! ¡Dame! ¡Dame!
