Authoress Lynn Hunter, Ed. D. states, “One of the most important things that parents can do for children is read to them.” I totally agree with this statement. Reading is the foundation of life-long learning; it widens horizons to art, letters, numbers.
I just read Hunter’s children’s book “Meet the Dooples”. Its Mr. Dooba Dee Doo wizard figure with his long white beard and anthromorphic Sketchy Pencil, Inky Pen, Markers, Rainbow Crayon, Marky Marker, Dusty Chalk, and Racer and Chaser Eraser are imaginative, whimsical, colorful characters boldly colored then named for what they do. Magically they come to life but only at night and learn not to be afraid, to explore, be creative, take risks and chances.
My youngest grand daughter began first grade this week. Sometime soon hubby and I are flying out to celebrated her birthday–belated–with her. We love doing things with her, simple things like going to the playground, feeding the birds, blowing bubbles, coloring and, of course, reading together. Got our bags packed, ready to go. All that is left to do is open the over-stuffed but not over-weight duffle packed especially for Princess and fit in this book. “Meet the Dooples” motivates young learners to develop life skills and strategies by practicing new concepts with everyday tools.
