5.0 out of 5 stars Even the little ones love it December 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you have ever tried to hold the interest of twin toddlers you will know what I am talking about during this review. What I love about this book and this series, is that the colorful pictures are so vibrant and so identifiable to a young child, that it can capture their attention and not let go. This is one of the few books that my twin toddlers will actually sit through and not lose interest after one minute. I love how inspiring these stories are and that Codley and his pal are always there to lend a hand ( to one another in a time of need. I think these books help promote early friend-making to young children and even my older kids seem to like them a lot. I recommend these books. This book was fun to read and I loved watching the kid's reactions when on every page they uncovered a new sea animal and got excited. Great book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Helping others, Helps yourself March 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Codley the octopus lives in a shipwreck in the ocean with many other aquatic animals. Their home is destroyed by a big storm. Each animal finds a way to help get things back together again.

Codley And The Big Storm is a good book for children whose lives may have been changed by a hurricane or other bad storms. It will help them realize they can help too.

My only wish for the book was that the story could have been longer.

With amazing illustrations by Ismedy Parsetya this book is only available on kindle at the moment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cooperation Makes Short Work of Any Task March 4, 2013
By Grampy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Codley and the Big Storm - Together We Can" by Lisl Fair is one of at least 3 books about Codley and his adventures under the sea. Codley is a friendly and well-liked octopus, who is safe and sound in his home under the sea, while a fierce storm rages on the surface. But when the storm is over, Codley is shocked to see how much everything has changed on the ocean bottom, too.

With the voluntary cooperation of many other sea creatures, Codley's home is soon in better shape than ever! All the animals learned that even a daunting task like the one they faced, was soon completed when everybody cooperated and lent a hand - or a fin, a tentacle, or a claw.

This is a book that is very properly formatted for a Kindle Fire held in the portrait, or upright, position. If held in the horizontal mode, the text and images do not correlate well. When read on a regular black and white Kindle, the marvelous colorful illustrations are precluded from adding another whole dimension of entertainment to the story. I expect the Kindle for PC app would also work well for showing this book to its best advantage.

Your kids will love Codley. You will be reading this bedtime story so often you may commit it to memory! I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Story Book About Friendship August 14, 2012
By Althea
Format:Kindle Edition
I try my best to read to my children every day,not just at bedtime. I believe that picture books can help enhance children's language and literacy. I am so glad that I came across this book. Codley and the Big Storm - Together We Can! is not just a fun book to read. It can also be used to help children understand and explore the value of friendship and cooperation.My 4 year old loves the colorful illustrations. My 3 three year old, on the other hand, cannot stop giggling every time I copy Pokie's face and change my voice from one character to another. Excellent book for kids!

5.0 out of 5 stars Characters successfully cope with a disaster August 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an illustrated book for children about coping with a disaster. It's not too scary for younger children. A storm comes and disrupts the seabed where Codley and his friends live. After the disaster, each character does a little something to help clean up afterwards, and eventually the place is livable again, though not exactly the same. A good story to help talk to children about disaster preparedness and that disaster recovery is possible.
