This product is a set of free coloring images to introduce Spin the Globe: The Incredible Adventures of Frederick von Wigglebottom, a fact-based, colorful and engaging educational book series based on bedtime stories told to my daughter and son.
Each night they would ask Daddy to tell them a story. After exhausting every variation of bunny, frog, knights and princess stories I could come up with, one evening I took notice of the globe that sat atop their dresser. I asked them to help me with a story topic and had them... "spin the globe".
Each adventure takes the reader (and Frederick) to a new country where he introduces you to our main characters (always a girl and boy) who are indigenous to the area of his adventure. These characters teach Frederick all about the people, culture, food, animals, and some pretty cool facts about where he “landed”. Frederick's goal is not only to entertain your children but also to use his adventures as an opportunity for them to broaden their horizons, instill a desire for them to want to learn even more, and for all of us to become good citizens of our planet.
Spin the Globe: The Incredible Adventures of Frederick von Wigglebottom appeals to children in the intermediate grade levels from third to fifth/early sixth grades. The characters and story line also appeal to children ages eight and older to be read by themselves but Frederick's adventures make for great bedtime stories or to be read at school for children in the younger grades, ages four and up.
Frederick always carries along his trusty journal (The Glossary) containing maps, facts, and other choice tidbits of information about his adventure. Come join him!
