Captain McFinn and Friends! Review and Giveaway.

Working in a school it amazes me how even at such a young age bullying is very widely spread. Even at 4 years old the children start picking at each others clothing, hair, speech and well just about anything they can! When I got the chance to review this great new series called Captain McFinn and Friends I was really excited to see if it could be something to use with my kids and students alike.
First I downloaded the interactive App onto my phone. My phone was a little slow for it but it looked really really cool so I checked and was excited to see that it is available on the kindle as well! You can check it our for your kindle HERE. I love the wide variety of material that you can get. I received a CD with tons of great songs. They kept my children's attention and had a great message. An activity book with fun mazes and coloring pages was a great addition. The story books were by far my favorite part of this series. It is brightly illustrated and full of adorable characters that my children simply LOVED! Now like many people right now we are out on winter break but I can't wait to show this to our school district and hopefully implement it as a program there! Remember that bullying prevention is nothing to joke about and they are never to young. Even at 5 years old my daughter very much understood the concept of these materials and I am assured all her classmates will as well. If you want to find out more about this great series please here HERE. You can find great free activities and also shop for these amazing books. These books would make a great gift for any child, parent of teacher. Don't be afraid to bring it up to your school district, lets stop bullying before it starts!
Captain McFinn and Friends want to help get bullying prevention off to a great start, they are giving away Captain McFinn and Friends Materials to one lucky reader.

I love the concept of the materials they offer. It is never to soon to educate our children on bullying!

Sounds like a great way to educate the kids that be a bully is just wrong, never to early to teach that and it sounds like its fun way for them to learn so they "get it".

I love the idea of this. I hate that there is bullying going on in this world. It is never to early to learn that it is wrong to bully.

I can remember filling in for an after school program and watching the kids age 4 teasing other children because of their shoes. All the parents (myself included) went out that night and bought our children shoes like the child they were picking on and made them wear them. I was so upset that my son at that age would pick on another child for something so stupid.
