In November we reviewed the book Teya Toucan and Youcan Too , from Chungaboo, for Sister and she really enjoyed it. When Chungaboo offered to send two additional books, The Well and The Color Door, for Sister, I was intrigued.
Chungaboo is an innovative, family-owned and oriented publishing company that creates highly interactive, educational content. They are based in Austin, Texas, and produce print books and Apps that feature rich stories and refreshing artwork.
Nestled in bed, dreams fill my head, when a tap on my window is heard.
Wipe sleep from my eyes, to find a surprise, in the form of a beautiful bird.
Should I follow his lead? Should I stay or proceed? He has taken me to the well.
My curiosity grows, about what it below. There is only one way to tell.
The Color Door…
Have you seen the door? Have you knocked and heard something knock back? Is it true what they say about the other side? The Color Door is a beautifully illustrated rhyming adventure about a young boy and a mysterious door that leads him to an exciting new friendship. An intriguing new world is sure to change his life forever.
Both books are beautifully illustrated and engaging. Sister was drawn more to The Well, simply because of her love of animals. Mister is able to read both books independently, and enjoys reading them to Sister and Little Miss. Both books are available in print from Chungaboo and retail for $9.99. The digital books, which feature an Interactive sketchpad with artwork from the books, are available from the iTunes iBookstore for just $4.99 each.
Sister and Mister give both books two thumbs up.
Either book would be a great basket stuffer from that mythical bunny next month.
