I am so very delighted to welcome my very talented youngest daughter as guest blogger today as she reviews the Captain McFinn and Friends series of books, sing-along-CD, activity books, and stickers that were provided for her to share with her 4 young ladies. She homeschools her girls and it is just a joy to watch her as a young mother interact with her girls. So without further from me, let's hear from Becky..........
Childhood is a wonderful, magical time. Children have an ability to imagine unique and beautiful worlds where they can play for hours. Unfortunately, there are times that the real world is a harsh place. There are bullies that populate schools and playgrounds, and their actions and words can leave lasting scars on the hearts of the children around them.Phyllis Cafaro has created an interactive undersea world where children can safely dive into learning about friendship, respect, forgiveness, and working together for the good of others. The stories of Captain McFinn and friends encourage children to live lives that display kindness and bravery. The Captain McFinn series of books also features a sing-a-long cd, apps, and an activity book with stickers and a variety of activities.
My girls have called the series “lots of fun,” and their favorite character is the beautiful undersea princess named Coral Rose. Each book also includes Fun Finn Facts, where kids can learn more about our incredible world.
In what may be the best line of the stories, Captain McFinn says, “Doing the right thing when we’re scared is the bravest thing of all!” In a world where children face bullies and we are all heartbroken by the shock of tragedies such as the Boston Marathon Bombing, this is a perfect reminder for kids and adults alike to stand up for others – to race to the aid of those who are hurting – even when we are afraid.
Yes, Captain McFinn, doing the right thing when you are scared really is the bravest thing of all!
