Cloud9World Books

One of the reasons that we decided to homeschool this year is because we want to focus on character development with Mister.

Cloud 9 World

We were in the midst of praying about our decision for this school year when I caught Mister telling a lie.  Twice.  In one week.  When that happened, I realized that developing his character in the next year was far more important that any scholastic achievement could be.

Not to mention, since he tested too smart for the public preschool program, I knew that chances were, if we elected to send him to the public preschool (via a district lottery), chances were he would get bored and become a trouble maker.  I know that he has trouble sitting still when he is bored.   The last thing I wanted was to have my son labeled as a problem before he even has a chance to excel.  That being said, after praying long and hard, we decided that it would be best to keep him home for the year and work on character as well as scholastic’s.

When I learned about Cloud9World™ books, which are specifically aimed at teaching about character, I was excited.  My kids love to read, I love to read to them, and I especially love books that make the rest of my job as a parent easier.

About Cloud9World™…  “Cloud9World™ was created by mothers who developed a common language that helped them aid their own children during challenging times.  The messages were simple, but results were incredible.  Thus, the Cloud9Kids™ collection was born.   By instilling good thoughts, engendering good behavior and boosting the wearer’s self-esteem, Cloud9Kids™ products empower both children and parents to become better human beings.”

Cloud9Books use animal characters and illustrations to explore character and virtues.  From Cloud9World, “Animal illustrations are among the earliest known examples of human self-expression. Kids are drawn toward animals because they appeal to their curiosity and kinship with the natural world.  Animals are our kindred spirits so their images are easy for kids to understand. Cloud9Kids™ draws on our shared experience with animals as a teaching tool to help our children develop social and emotional skills.  Through the animals’ examples, our children can grow into becoming better creatures themselves.”

There are currently three sets of Cloud9Books- the “I Love Giving” set, the “I Bring Happiness” set, and the “I Can Do It” set.  Each set has six books, and each book covers one character attribute.   We received the “I Love Giving” set of books for review.  The six books in this set explore giving and selflessness.  They demonstrate the effect generosity has on love in your life by exploring Love, Generosity, Loyalty, Respect, Integrity, and Compassion.

The Cloud9World Books are beautifully illustrated, and do an impressive job of introducing each character quality and then explaining it and showing it in action.  The stories are both fun and engaging, and encourage learning.  My kids both enjoy the books, and right now their favorites are Compassion (the gorilla) and Respect (the turtle).  I thought it was interesting that the gorilla is used for compassion, when the gorilla is one of the fiercest animals of the rainforest, yet extremely scared of humans.  The Respect book has a strong “love our earth” message.   While I don’t believe that animals are our kindred spirits (we are not animists), I do know that animals have long been used as characters to teach children important life lessons, and Cloud9World Books do just that.  I plan to get the other two sets to round out our collection.

I give Cloud9World Books 4 out of 5 stars.

Cloud9World would like to give one lucky That Bald Chick reader a set of Cloud9World books of their own!!!
