My boys are in first grade, and these early chapter books are perfect for them! They’re just the right level for kids who are just getting into chapter books, and the colorful illustrations by award-winning comic illustrator Art Baltazar definitely keep my boys’ interest. They’ve really been enjoying this fun and exciting book series!
Capstone is also sponsoring a fantastic writing contest for kids in conjunction with the launch of this new series! The “My Pet Is Super!” contest invites kids in grades 1-3 to write a newspaper article about their pet for The Daily Planet. The winning “reporter” will have his/her super-pet drawn by illustrator Art Baltazar AND the super-pet will appear in a future book in the series! The winner and his/her school will also receive books. The top 50 entrants will receive two free books -- one for the child and one for his/her school library. For complete rules and to enter, visit www.CapstoneKids.com. The contest runs from January 15, 2011 through February 28, 2011. If you’re a teacher or home-schooling parent, this would be a great activity for your children!
