My Thoughts

Each Book In This Series Gets…

Rating: 5 out of 5.

As mentioned above I really enjoyed all of these books. Each one carries a valuable Life lesson that every child needs to learn. Not only that but the stories are imaginative and fun! The illustrations are just amazing – it’s like watching a cartoon series unfold. The activity and coloring book are the icing on the cake! Now my son can try to recreate the magic with his crayon abilities.

With the world our children are growing up in and the “standards” that are set by society, it’s so very important to let you child know that it’s their uniqueness that makes them great! I think Calvin nails it with this series, and I’m so very honored to have this set in my child’s library.
