My children and I are always on the look out for something good to read. I love it when I get the chance to review books that are all about turning out ‘good’ kids! Funny Bone Readers serve two purposes – good reading material and good character. Designed for kids ages 4-7, these silly stories focus on exciting ways to teach character development. The bright, colorful early reader books with fun illustrations were an instant hit with my kids (the big kids loved reading them to the little guy).
There are 12 books in the set that focus on the following character traits:
Citizenship (protecting the environment and obeying rules)
They forgot to add the character trait of NOT TEARING THE PAGES IN YOUR BOOKS to this list (since my Viking loves to tear books and color on the pages). I’m waiting for another set of them to come out – as “Patiently” as possible (hint, hint)!
You can see the entire collection at the Red Chair Press website.
In addition to the story books, a Red Chair Press also offers a Lesson Plans and Activities for School and Home book that has pre/post tests and certificates for your kids. It tells you (as the teacher) what each book is about and gives you ideas for questions to ask your kids so they can internalize the message in the book. They include additional learning activity suggestions, worksheets and internet links for additional fun.
Take a look at these book titles that are sure to snag your child’s interest and bring laughs to reading time:
Fun in the Mud
The Best Birthday Gift
Let’s Bee Friends
Squid and Pickles
The Magic Words
Miss Moo Goes to the Beach
Turbo Turtle to the Rescue
Silly Tilly and the Royal Rules
The Clean Team
