Astro Zebra Loves Forts

ByAunt Karyn

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Astro Zebra is just one of the beloved characters in the Aunt Karyn portfolio of personalities. And OH, what a personality he has! Astro is a VERY creative zebra and he loves building forts. He hopes to one day build forts on the moon; but for now, he’s happy building all types of forts in the most curious and common places. Follow Astro as he guides you through his neighborhood and shows you all his favorite forts. The book concludes with Astro’s most favorite fort of all – under the covers - in his Goodnight fort! An endearing book for readers of all ages, it’s the perfect way to send kids off to sleep while planting ideas about creating spaces of their own. As children lay in bed, they drift off to sleep thinking about the types of forts they can build themselves. “Round Fort, Square Fort, Blankets over chair fort - Short Fort, Long Fort, Sing a campfire song fort - State Fort, Town Fort, Hanging upside down fort - Box Fort, Snow Fort, Where I like to go fort ” Written in verse, this book follows the same rhyme and rhythm of Dr. Seuss. In fact, all Aunt Karyn books are written in the same pentameter as Dr. Seuss because he was a beloved author from her childhood. Aunt Karyn grew up in Springfield, MA - just 3 miles from his house! Studies show that books written in rhyme help children learn about words, sounds and language formation. We now know that using rhyme, rhythm and repetition helps children develop early literacy skills and aids in early brain development. It also helps children become more confident readers and can increase their memory skills. Kids ages: 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 But really for kids of ALL AGES.
