4 Sunflower Media has just began publishing a new series of 10 storybooks, written by Marilynn Halas and illustrated by Jeremy Provost, that facilitate a child's social-emotional development by helping them learn the life skills they need to live a happy and balanced life. The first book in the series, Hello, We're The Fuzzwippers was released earlier this year and introduces us and our children to the Fuzzwippers.
Here is the synopsis of Hello, We're The Fuzzwippers from the back cover of the book:
Welcome to the Land of the Fuzzwippers!
Fuzzwippers are friendly creatures that reach out to anyone who needs to be assured that they are wanted and needed. Children of all ages will be fascinated by these new-found friends who whisper to them in the language of Imaginarius and accompany them wherever they go. Introduce your children to their very own Fuzzwippers!
This story is absolutely adorable and a wonderful addition to any child's or elementary school's library. With bullying being so prominent--being reminded that "they are loved, no matter what" is vital. Imaginary friends are such an important part of a young child's life and they can provide support during those times parents can't be there. The Fuzzwippers are really a cute idea since they just look like little puff balls, it is really easy for a child to imagine and remember their own Fuzzwipper is with them (if need be, you could really find a puff for them to keep with them, giving them that extra support)--I wonder what your child's Fuzzwipper looks like and what its name is. My son's is black & orange (his favorite colors) and he hasn't settled on a name yet. I love that Fuzzwippers help give a child more confidence and help put them at ease in difficult situations--just the way only an imaginary, positive friend can. It is also written at a level that a beginning reader can read and the illustrations really help bring the book to life. It is a good introduction to the Fuzzwippers and the positive messages they will be teaching throughout the series.
The second book in the series, Fuzzwippers Find Good Listener is scheduled to be released on September 24, 2012. This story helps children learn how to be a good listener. I haven't seen this book yet, but I am sure it is great, especially given the important lesson that it is teaching! So important!
Be sure to keep an eye on the Fuzzwipper website--I have a feeling that it is going to have some great support and information on it in the near future. Plus, watch for the next 8 books, as they are released with more positive lessons for our children.
