What makes reading even better? Reading with a friend, of course! And these adorable book sets come with the friends built in. Tote bundles featuring beloved favorite books like Dragons Love Tacos, Narwhal: Unicorn of the Sea, and the Dog Man series are making their big debut just in time for the holidays, and bringing children’s favorite characters to life in a whole new way.
The convenient totes are made of durable plastic and come with everything you need to create memorable reading time and get kids to start devouring a great book series instead of asking to binge-watch their favorite TV shows. There’s a set of four Fly Guy books, a quirky and hilarious series about the adventures of a fly who befriends a little boy named Buzz. The books have short sentences and full-color illustrations — perfect for emerging readers who aren’t quite ready to make the jump to chapter books. And as kids are giggling at the slapstick humor of Fly Guy devouring a giant hot dog or competing in a pet show, they’ll be making their own friend, too, in the form of their very own cuddly Fly Guy hug buddy.
For kids who are ready to make the leap to something slightly more challenging, there’s the tote full of Dog Man, the graphic novel series from Dav Pilkey, the creator of Captain Underpants. Dog Man is half man, half dog, and 100 percent crime-fighting hero, as he takes on his forever nemesis, Petey the Cat. He also happens to be the perfect way to introduce kids to the world of comics and reading that is truly fun. Each book has how-to-draw tutorials to inspire kids to start creating their own adventures at home, right alongside their very own Dog Man plush toy.
