Get Caught Reading with "Guess Who Buddy" Book Review...




CELEBRATE GET CAUGHT READING MONTH WITH DINOSAUR TRAIN AND
READER’S DIGEST CHILDREN’S PUBLISHING!

Help others to “Get Caught Reading” too with a local book drive!




"DINOSAUR TRAIN’s “Buddy” celebrates the Association of American Publishers Get Caught Reading campaign for a second year, a campaign devised to remind people of all ages how much fun it is to read! 




Research has proven that early language experience stimulates a child's brain to grow and reading to children gives them a huge advantage when they start school. Member organizations of the Association of American Publishers (AAP) participate in a variety of ways in Get Caught Reading to encourage people of all ages to enjoy books and magazines and to share that pleasure with the young children in their lives.

As part of the Get Caught Reading campaign, Buddy, from Dinosaur Train, is depicted “caught reading” in posters made available to teachers and parents for use in classrooms, libraries and other locations. The “Buddy” poster is available at http://www.getcaughtreading.org/celebrity-posters.php <http://www.getcaughtreading.org/celebrity-posters.php> . Posters are FREE plus a $5.00 charge per set (1 – 12 posters) for shipping and handling! The order form is available here: http://www.getcaughtreading.org/orderforms/GetCaughtReading-PosterOrderForm.pdf <http://www.getcaughtreading.org/orderforms/GetCaughtReading-PosterOrderForm.pdf> .

According to AAP Vice President Tina Jordan, “Dinosaur Train is one of the most popular and frequently requested Get Caught Reading posters by the elementary school and library community and AAP is grateful to The Jim Henson Company for allowing Buddy to join our GCR community.”

In Guess Who Buddy!, “What’s that dinosaur?” is the question Buddy needs to answer as he plays a guessing game with his friends. Kids can play along with Buddy by reading the playful descriptive text for each hidden character, guessing the dinosaur, then lifting the flap to see if they are right! A surprise pop-up at the end of the story adds to the charm of this fun book. SRP $10.99. Ages 2 and up.

Get Caught Reading Month has been supported in the past by such well-known figures as former First Lady Laura Bush, Drew Carey, Clifford the Big Red Dog, Donald Duck, Patty Duke, Whoopi Goldberg, Billy Graham, Derek Jeter, Vernon Jordan, Jake Lloyd, Rosie O'Donnell, Dolly Parton, The Rugrats, Jane Seymour, Sammy Sosa, Spider Man, Erik Weihenmayer, and Robin Williams, all of whom have been "caught reading" their favorite books and magazines for print ads and posters seen by millions of people across the country. In addition, more than 200 Members of Congress have been photographed "caught reading" on Capitol Hill.

What we thought:  This was a really cute book for my little Dino Train lovers!  The riddles were fun to guess and the characters were colorful as always:)  The kiddos had a blast guessing who was hiding behind each flap and then checking to see who was right.  This is one they have asked to read over and over again which is always a good sign if you ask me:)  And it would be a great book with which to celebrate "Get Caught Reading" Month!  ABCD Diaries gives "Guess Who Buddy!" an A+!
