The town's special parade is disrupted when the bank is robbed. When Snickerdoodle announces that he can save the day, the sheriff isn't the only skeptic … the bank robbers see him as no bother at all. Can Snickerdoodle really help the town?
The CD-book combination gives parents options for sharing the stories with their child. Preschoolers and elementary-aged children can see themselves as the Superhero, because Snickerdoodle is just their size.
Our preschooler has loved all the Snickerdoodle stories (and CD). We're going on nearly two weeks of routine requests for the material. Every time the CD finishes, s/he announces "that was great."
Although Snickerdoodle has worn on us, we're happy that he's keeping our child interested in his adventures. The stories are imaginative with a positive message, and our preschooler loves "reading" on his/her own.
This is the first book of this tall tale series.
Depending on the age of your audience, you can use the stories to teach self-esteem and individual worth, talk about tall tales, and maybe even play some "what would you do" scenarios (before revealing what Snickerdoodle did).
