Are you looking for good stories for boys and girls? Finding books with great values and free of bad behaving children and adults is not so easy to find. You’ll be very pleased with the books from Glad To Do It!
I met the author of these wonderful books, Jim Brewster, at the homeschool convention (HEAV Convention) in Richmond. He was so kind to send these 4 books to include in the Giveaway. He writes these books with the hope that they will encourage kids to serve others with a happy heart. Isn’t this a great goal? As homeschool moms, we all have this wish for our children.
These books showcase how ordinary people serve others, putting them first while having a great attitude. The main characters are: Uncle Rocky, the fireman and his two nephews. Other series are Officer Jack, the policeman and his partner, Kate. The EMT Morales book is about two EMT officers who help an injured man. The 4th book, Aunt Louise Comes to Visit is a sweet book that all children will relate to.
The author sent me instructions to make the books even more fun, when you’re reading them aloud.
Uncle Rocky, Fireman, is more fun when we do this together: When the alarm goes off EVERYONE jumps up and shouts CLANG, CLANG, etc. Then they act out getting dressed for the fire, then they make all the sounds of the truck.
Next, when the light turns red, they put up their hands like a cop stopping traffic. After Rocky races to the fire, they all sit down and the story continues. At the end of the story when Rocky says, “Glad to do it!” everyone shouts “Glad To Do It!” with Rocky. (Say it like Dudley Do-Right, the Canadian Mounty) would say it.
The illustrations are well done and the kids can even color some Free Coloring sheets. These can be downloaded off the website. I’m extremely impressed with all of the books. They are filled with excitement and good lessons.
The entire collection of books can be found on the Glad To Do It! website, as well as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. So, I encourage you to check out all the books and see how much your children will love them.
