Story 11: Kite High
Oliver and Jumpy are flying their parachute with a wooden carriage. They soon find they'll need help to land their parachute carriage. A new friend might help.
Story 12: Butterfly Trouble
Oliver and Jumpy meet some Butterflies. They end up letting too many go. Their new friend will help them fix things.
Once again Mr. Stejskal takes the children on a lovely adventure with his friends, Oliver the cat and Jumpy the Kangaroo. Oliver and Jumpy like to jump into fun and helping others. I love that these books are short and sweet. They also give children the chance to let their imaginations fly. They can picture themselves with Oliver and Jumpy. It's amazing how easy these are to introduce to your child's night time routine. Perfect to send them off dreaming of wonderful adventure and new friends. I have always had positive feedback from the children I share them with. We usually read the stories four or five times before we're sure it's enough. Your littles will love these stories.
I didn't find any issues.
I gave this book 5 cheers out of 5 because they make us giggle and let our minds wander.
In the first story, “Unhappy Dog” a Dog is barking at Oliver and he’s annoyed of the dog. So he asks him what is wrong. The dog is bored and likes to play with Oliver. Jumpy let him out and they have a great time together. They promise to play one day again.
In the second story, “Kite High” Oliver and Jumpy build a wooden carriage with a sail on it. They step on it and the wind, as it picked up the carriage flew high up. And then, well, you better read the story what happen next and how they got saved.
In the third story, “Butterfly Trouble” a butterfly lands on Oliver’s nose. He wakes up and find out that a boy was chasing it to catch it and to put it into a jar. The butterfly pleads Oliver to help him.
All three stories are wonderfully written with fantastic drawings and moral lessons. When annoyed by someone, ask that person what is wrong and they solve it together; when in trouble, ask for help; when another is in trouble willingly help.
I guess we've become accustomed to Oliver's sassy "voice," and we missed it when it wasn't there. We've been enjoying these books for a few months now, and look forward to discovering new stories from the elegant cat!
The butterflies were adorably illustrated, and now my little girl wants one as a pet! I explained that that's why Oliver helped rescue the little creature, since they're not meant to be pets, but she's little, and still thinks that it's perfectly plausible for cats and kangaroos to fly in wooden boats. I won't be the one to tell her otherwise, but we will keep enjoying these stories together!
They also realized that Oliver will make a good pet because he could easily make friends to anybody. And together with his friend, Jumpy, both knew how to help those in need, like The butterflies. "I'll never chase butterflies again, Mom" is what my younger one said. Honestly, I like that my sons learn something more when they read books like these ones written by Werner Stejskal. They learn the value of friendship, they become aware of their surroundings, including animals, and they learn the lesson of giving and sharing. Thanks so much for this really interesting read!
