If so, check out Skippyjon’s brand new interactive website!
I was playing around on it this morning, and thought it was really fun. I loved the Spanish phrases game.
If you are unfamiliar with Skippyjon Jones, it’s a series of children’s picture books written and illustrated by Judith Byron Schachner. Here’s a blurb about him from Scachner’s website:
“Move over, Eloise and Olivia. Make room for SkippyjonJones, a Siamese kittenboy who can’t resign himself to being an ordinary cat. Having a time-out in his room, he resorts to his imagination. Taking on the superhero persona of the great Spanish sword fighter Skippito, he has the adventure of his life, and readers are invited along. Zany, wild, and over-the-top, this utterly original book truly begs to be read aloud.”
I’ve noticed these books have become quite popular in our area, and I see why! I’ve ordered extra copies of each of Skippyjon’s adventures, and will soon be available to check out at both Library North and the Main Library.
