NubeOcho specializes in picture books and children’s fiction. We received all six book and while my son, who is eight, was a bit old for them, he read them all to me. Our favorite was The Journey of Captain Scaredy Cat. I LOVED the illustrations, they are so whimsical. With the soft muted colors and oversized images, they brought the story to life.
All of their books promote respectful attitude towards all types of diversity. They are also a playful medium that makes it easier to engage in first experiences and feelings that the little ones may not easily understand. I like that that books offer underliying themes or teachable ideas, especially for little kids that sometimes have a hard time expressing themselves and their feelings.
THE JOURNEY OF CAPTAIN SCAREDY CAT: Who said pirates were only harsh and fearless? Captain Scaredy Cat was the most daring of all pirates. Not long ago, and no one knows why the captain started to be scared of everything – even of his shadow. A funny story about pirates to help overcome fear.
CARLOTA WOULDN’T SAY BOO: What if a child doesn’t need to talk? A funny story about shyness and how to overcome it. Little Carlotta is timid and afraid to speak. One day, by accident, she was locked inside the house’s pantry, alone, with only tomato cans and marmalade jars around her. Using her voice will be the only way to help her get out of there.
SEARCHING: Sometimes we fail to see – and value – what’s all around us. A search-and-find book about seeing and enjoying. Its illustrations will help children learn to observe. They will also find vocabulary, numbers and they will meet a lot of different characters.
RACCOON WANTS TO BE FIRST: Raccoon wants to be the first in everything, and he almost always succeeds at it. But one day, Fox arrives in the forest…
A fun adventure to teach us that “being first” is not the most important thing. Excessive competition can be negative and can sometimes bring anguish to children.
THE GALINOS: Come with us to the Planet Gala and discover all of its wonders: the galatrees, the galabars, and the galacomputers. You will meet The Galinos, the special aliens who are trying to save their planet, but not without some challenges. A book to help us appreciate nature and learn the urgency of protecting it through a fun adventure with friends.
