As the start of summer fast-approaches, it’s a prime time to “Get Caught Reading!” As such, The Jim Henson Company recently teamed-up with the Association of American Publishers (AAP) to offer a pair of new “Get Caught Reading” Posters – available FREE to educators or anyone (+ $5 s/h) – featuring the DOOZERS and ENCHANTED SISTERS. These new posters join a trio of earlier releases from The Jim Henson Company, including characters from PBS KIDS’ DINOSAUR TRAIN and SID THE SCIENCE KID, along with the Sprout/NBC Kids hit, PAJANIMALS. To celebrate the new offerings, and the start of summer, THE ROCK FATHER Magazine and The Jim Henson Company will be getting a couple of readers set-up with copies of ENCHANTED SISTERS: SUMMER’S FRIENDSHIP GAMES, the latest book in the ENCHANTED SISTERS series from Bloomsbury Children’s Publishing!
About the ENCHANTED SISTERS Series: The new chapter book series, Enchanted Sisters, targets newly independent readers—girls ages seven through nine—and tells the stories of the four sisters – the Sparkles: Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer who come together every three months to join their Mother Nature in a ceremony that changes the seasons in our world. Their world is magically different from our own, yet the Sparkles are completely relatable. They are confidently themselves, even when that’s the hardest thing to be. Continuing the longstanding Jim Henson Company tradition, the message in these stories about strong girls making bold choices are clear: embrace and celebrate our differences; anyone can be a hero; and families come in lots of different packages. The books are co-authored by Elise Allen, author of the book Anna’s Icy Adventure(DisneyFrozen), and Halle Stanford, eight time Emmy-nominated children’s television producer and senior vice president of children’s entertainment at The Jim Henson Company. Paige Pooler, whose artwork can be seen in American Girl magazine, and the Liberty Porter, Trading Faces, and My Sister is a Vampire middle grade book series, is the illustrator.
In Enchanted Sisters: Summer’s Friendship Games, Summer has always secretly enjoyed hanging out with Thunderbolt, one of the mischievous Weeds who bring disaster and mayhem everywhere they go. Sure, the Weeds have acted poorly in the past, but they can’t be all bad . . . right? Summer’s sisters couldn’t disagree with her more-especially after the boys ruin Summer’s bonfire party. When the two teams of magical siblings try to settle their disagreements in a series of competitive sports, Summer and Thunderbolt are forced to stop talking. But is winning and siding with their siblings really worth ruining their friendship?
