A Bobby-Dazzler of a Pouch! by Janet Halfmann

Award-winning children’s author Janet Halfmann’s latest book, A Bobby-Dazzler of a Pouch!, is a fun and whimsical way to entertain and educate your children about Australian animals and words, friendship, and problem-solving.

Joey, a gray kangaroo, needs to find his way back to his mother’s pouch in the mob. Though he tries and tries, he can’t seem to do it. Then a handful of animal friends pitch in to help him out.

By now, you know I am a fan of Halfmann’s work. All her books entertain and educate in a way that is attractive to young readers. This short story is one that teaches children how to problem-solve and work together to obtain a goal. It is a story about friendship in the wild that touches the heart, even though it is a whimsical story.

The colorful artwork by Abira Das will keep readers turning the pages as much as the story. Lush green, vibrant red, and deep blue contrast so well against the white space and neutral colors of most of the animals.

The story is followed by fun kangaroo facts, Australian words, and a list of Australian animals and plants featured in the story.

So much fun, you and your children will want to read A Bobby-Dazzler of a Pouch! over and again.

How to Defeat the Icky, Filthy, Creepy, Slimy Corona Monster by Robert F. DeFinis, Ed.D.

How to Defeat the Icky, Filthy, Creepy, Slimy Corona Monster by Robert F. DeFinis, Ed.D. is a timely rhyming story to help you encourage good and healthy habits in your children so they can return to the life they knew before the coronavirus.

Doctor Robert F. Definis, Ed. D. has created this fun way to talk to your kids about the habits they need to adopt to help keep them and others safe. While they do their part, these SUPERHEROES in training will defeat the icky, filthy, creepy, slimy CORONA MONSTER.

Right now, things seem so uncertain for parents. Just imagine how kids are feeling. Inspired by the author’s desire to find a way to help explain things to his own daughter, this imaginative and empowering story will bring your child through the steps we have been hearing about for months: hand washing, covering your cough and sneeze, and keeping your distance. Readers are encouraged to be vigilant so the future can be better.

How to Defeat the Icky, Filthy, Creepy, Slimy Corona Monster is such a fun book, your children will forget they are learning something. This book can help assure your children it will be okay and address some of their fears. I like that the author reminds readers to remember those first responders who made our lives better and that it encourages children to look to the future where playing outside and hugging is no longer a scary thing.

How to Defeat the Icky, Filthy, Creepy, Slimy Corona Monster will make those tough conversations easier on everyone.

Highly recommended.
