Reading is always more fun with a friend, right? Reading about and going through life experiences like going to the dentist or taking a trip is always nicer with a friend!
Disclosure: I received complimentary products to facilitate my Arlo Review. Regardless, all opinions are my own and those of my family.
Early Ink Press offers a series of children’s books featuring Arlo the elephant. Arlo goes on every day adventures that most children will experience or have experienced.
Hi! I’m a little elephant named Arlo, created by Karisa Lowe and Edmund Boey. I love going adventures, but sometimes they can be scary because I don’t know what’s going to happen! Eventually, I figure out how things really go and it’s usually not so bad! I love helping my young friends get through these same situations by sharing my experiences! Hope you guys enjoy!
The series is great for little ones that may be apprehensive about their first trip or first dentist appointment or going somewhere new. It is also ideal for young readers and any children that love listening to and/or reading stories. Having an Arlo plush by their side makes the experience so much more fun!
For our review we received the Arlo series of books, which includes three books (Arlo Goes to the Dentist, Arlo and the Airplane, and Arlo Goes to the Farmers Market) and an Arlo plush.
All of our kids have been loving the Arlo books and especially love having Arlo by our side when we’re reading them. They find the stories fun and enjoyable. We’ve already read them all several times!
Our older two children (ages 7 and 8) are also enjoying trying to read them on their own. Due to their special needs, they are both delayed readers, but they have really taken to the Arlo books and work hard to read them. I love that they have an Arlo to practice reading them to because it encourages them to try to read out loud when they may otherwise be nervous about making mistakes. I let them have those moments without interruptions!
I love that Arlo’s adventures are ordinary adventures presented in a fun way. Being a mom of three special needs children, I appreciate books that address important social situations in a way the kids can understand and enjoy. I think it’s great for all kids, but we definitely don’t take any opportunities to help the kids learn about social situations for granted!
I think the Arlo books are cute, fun, and encouraging. Having an Arlo plush really helps to make the experience that much more fun!
