Rooney is the only ‘regular’ kid in an elementary school of superheroes. When he wants to play soccer with his superhero classmates, they shun him because he’s a mere mortal. Meanwhile at school, all the superheroes get involved in a daily eating contest, which Rooney shuns. After a while, the superheroes become so heavy, they’re bursting out of their superhero suits. Even worse, they are unable to fly and utilize their super skills in the championship soccer game, but Rooney comes in and saves the day. “Brave Rooney and the Super-Sized Superheroes” is designed to encourage a fun appreciation of healthy eating.
Just Breathe is for any child who feels anxious or worried when facing everyday life circumstances such as going to a new school, taking a test, arguing with a friend, or trying out for a team. In this rhythmic story, the child remembers to breathe deeply in order to find his own inner calm and successfully cope with each new situation.
Have you heard about the Rabbit and the very hungry Fox? For generations, this endearing old world mnemonic* was passed from father to son by word of mouth only.
Now, this clever memory jogger has been revived as “Learn To Tie A Tie With The Rabbit and the Fox”, a cute, beautifully illustrated story with a lively instructional song. This story book offers a fun and simple lesson for tying a “school boy knot” in a tie.
It is a family activity book meant to make it fun for parents to teach their children the most popular method for tying a tie. It is so easy, in fact, that a very young child can quickly master it. Just grab a tie for each person to follow along with the story and the step by step illustrations. Soon, everyone will be have a perfectly tied necktie. Then, try singing the song as you practice your new skill. You won’t be able to forget the skill or the song!
Currently available in English, Spanish and Tagalog (Philippino). Accompanying song can be heard in all 3 languages at Sybrina.com. Will be available in Hanzi (Simplified Chinese) soon.
