Skate Into Fun Children's Book Review



Thanks to Washington Longfellow Press, my five year old son and I have been granted the opportunity to get a free copy of "Skate Into Fun" from the Jenna Fun book series. It was written by Dr. Nev Nickels. My son is a huge lover of books so I knew that he was going to be really excited to be able to read a new children's book.

He reads several books everyday- some we read together and others he reads on his own. Yes, my five year old can read. He reads at a really high level-and can actually read better than some adults! (Sorry, I had to brag a little...)

Anyway,
We received an e-book version of the book that we are able to read on the Kindle app on my tablet. I love Kindle books and he does too.

Let Me Tell You All About the Book

  • Filled with really cute and colorful illustrations geared toward a child audience
  • Very imaginative 
  • A lot of  fun and easy to read for young readers. Great vocabulary builder for kids too.
  • Also great for kids who are being read to
  • Encourages children to think about what they want to be when they grow up--(Jenna has so many great occupation ideas throughout the book)
I personally love everything about the book. I like that there is only a sentence per page and not too many words. This makes it easier for many beginner readers. There are a couple of words that might be slightly harder for some kids, but they can always be read out loud by parents or whoever else is reading along with the child. This book can help young children build their vocabulary with the new words. 
I like that there are so many great career choices for kids to learn about and they can applied to both genders, unlike in some books. 

My son was able to read it, word for word, out loud, from beginning to end. He really enjoyed it. He says his favorite part about it is the pictures and he loves the part about the astronaut. Now he keeps saying that he wants to be an astronaut when he grows up! He has already read the book several times and we've only had it for a couple of days.

I definitely recommend this book. I think that many kids will really love reading it. I'm looking forward to getting other titles from Dr. Nev because I just know that my son will love them!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
