Back to School Giveaway Event

Books.  I love them.  I have been a reader since an early age and ended up becoming an English major and teacher.  My daughter is following in my footsteps and has more books than I do.  I am always looking for new books to inspire and engage her.

We have recently begun reading chapter books together and I am on the lookout for educational, fun, and meaningful stories for her eager mind to soak up.

Captain No Beard Books

The Captain No Beard books by Carole P. Roman are the perfect segue between toddler books and chapter books. At approximately 40 pages, these books are still short, yet introduce children to the concept of plot while sticking to subjects and characters that appeal to young children.

The stories of Captain No Beard, inspired by a game the author played with her grandson, include action, humor, and valuable lessons of character and information.

The illustrations are beautiful and bright and will help keep your reader interested in the story.  One of the most difficult jumps from toddler books to chapter books can be the absence of pictures and color.  The Captain No Beard books have imaginative illustrations to help young readers visualize a more complicated plot than most toddler books use.

Some of the Captain No Beard series books are:

These books would be a perfect set to acquire as you prep your children for the upcoming school year.  They can go back to school excited to learn after reading through this fun series!  These stories will spark their imagination and have lessons and plots that can easily be turned into additional learning activities for young ones.

Find the series on Amazon today!

    My daughter will read anything you put infront of her. My son only likes to read the types of books he enjoys.

  5. Ru says

    My LO absolutely adores reading. Every night she tests her luck but seeing how many books we’d read to her before we make her go to sleep. This morning, when I realized it was waaaay to quiet, I cautiously entered the living room to find her sitting quietly in the corner leafing through a book.

    Yes! I was raised in a book loving home, so now our home is the same – we have bookshelves in every room of the house full of books, plus a whole place just for our library books. :-) We all enjoy reading, it’s a love I enjoy encouraging. :-)

    2 of my kids love to read, 1 not so much and my little one is just starting to read, so hopefully he will love reading as well.
