Farting Four-Toed Troll

By Lavelle Carlson

Poop! Fart! These are the words that can be so embarrassing for parents and grandparents. And, it is certainly a headache for preschooler and early elementary teachers to try to instill the inappropriateness in their young students. Well, Farting Four-Toed Troll gives a great opportunity for parents and teachers to talk about these words in a way that is more appropriate. Introduce the book title and say, “Hmmm, should we say Farting Four-Toed Troll or Christmas Troll? I wonder how the Norwegian or Swedish troll would feel if we called him a farting troll”. You can also introduce manners during the reading of the book as the troll says, “Excuse me” after he lets off gas. Was there a mother troll who thanked him for using his manners? Always talk about kindness to children and different words that are “kind” words that make people feel good.

The Great Potoo and the Cockatoo Coloring Book – Or, get it as a download as part of your subscription

Research has shown that memory is facilitated by all hands-on activities including coloring. All children will delight in coloring this delightful story while helping the cockatoo find its way home. All the animals from Costa Rica through Peru, Ecuador, and the Galapagos to Australia will direct the cockatoo. Sometimes the cockatoo does not follow the directions to a “T” and goes out of his way. Luckily, he meets some wonderful animals who redirect him. As the children read (listen as adults read) they will see if he finally makes it home okay. Along the way the children will learn some fun facts about the animals they color as well as some rhyming. How exactly can the great potoo see the cockatoo if it keeps his eyes closed? Is there some secret to his ability to camouflage? This book can also be used by teachers and parents on teaching directions via a compass either on an iPhone or a regular compass. The book ends with a map of part of Central America in which the cockatoo flies to arrive at his home.
