THE CREATIVE TEAM RAFANELLI
Let’s talk books. Not ponderous tomes this time, but children’s books. As in very young children. The two or three to five year olds. What should a child’s first real book be like? I would propose that it should teach something, and lend itself to reading with a parent. It should also have great graphics and color and great visual appeal.
Such books for young children are few and far between, it sometimes seems. Now I have found a couple on Kindle. Yes, they are ebooks, but again that lends itself well to reading with a parent. Both of these fine books may also be coming out in paper in the near future for those who prefer that.
In the interest of complete disclosure, I must admit that both of these little books were authored by my son-in-law, Andrea Rafanelli, and his brother Antonio. Andrea’s wife, Lara Zarowsky Rafanelli, my daughter, was also Editor on the project. But trust me, I’d still love the books, even it I didn’t know the team that created them.
So here they are. Take a look, and if you agree that they both belong in your child’s library, and that they are a great (and entertaining) teaching tool–they both are available from Kindle, for a measly three bucks each, minus a penny. Thanks to all for work very well and thoughtfully done.
Concerns the very serious subject of bullying. A great way to have that first discussion with a child.
A short but lovely and endearing story about how the Sun and all the planets became friends and ran around with each other. A sweet little tale about getting along with people that are a little different.
Thanks once again to all involved. We will all be looking forward to a lot more great installments from this team as time goes by.
