Book Review - Captain Joe Saves the Day!
About the Book
The Captain Joe Series was designed as a tool for adults to teach children about constructive imagination. The four books are a fun and interactive way to introduce the concept of "Thoughts Turn into Things" (so choose the ones that make you happy) to young children, ages five to nine years. Joe and his thought-zapping superpower will invite children to use their imaginations to constructively choose thoughts that promote healthy self-esteem and self-awareness. Each picture story is designed to teach a key concept. Captain Joe Saves the Day is the second book in the series and is a lesson in how purposeful thinking can help eliminate self-limiting beliefs. Children will discover what happens when Joe uses his invisible 'thought-zapping' wand to save himself from his swampy pit thoughts. After giving in to his self-doubt and disappointment, Joe learns the importance of speaking up and taking an active role in reaching his dreams of becoming a soccer goalie. Most everyone can recall a time in their lives where they held themselves back from what they really wanted because they were afraid they wouldn't measure up; this story is a great way to open discussions around this valuable life lesson in a basic and appealing way kids will relate to.
My Take on the Book
In Book 2, author Emily Madill tells a story about a boy named Joe and how he learns to have confidence. Joe's inner voice told him that he would be a great goalie for his soccer team but he was afraid. The story showed how he was able to remove his fears and move forward with the dreams he had for himself. Another book that is perfect for sharing and discussing with your child.
