Book Review and Freebies!
On Monday through Thursday my class has specials right after our first recess. Hands down their favorite special is "Mr. Shea". Mr. Shea is the counselor at our school and he comes in once a week to work with the kiddos on a variety of topics from team building, self-esteem, and character education.
But... they were really excited to learn that Mr. Shea was an author! His first book The Adventures of Bob: To Doodledip For Soup was just published this month. Our whole school got a sneak preview a few months ago during a special assembly.
The basic premise of the book is that a man named Bob is whisked away to a faraway planet where he is invited by the King to enjoy some soup. But... Bob doesn't want to eat the soup. His punishment for not eating the soup? He is forced to take home a fat, purple, servant cat named Bongo who doesn't listen to anyone! He should have eaten the soup!
Mr. Shea has also created his own TPT store where he has several free activities to accompany the book.
Since the assembly, Mr. Shea and Bongo (one of the main characters of the book) have been busy making cute little videos available on YouTube. The one below is my son, Luke's favorite.
You can purchase a copy of the book at the link above or at Amazon here.
