ABOUT THE STORY
What if I told you your son can't wait to brush his teeth?
What if I told you that his primary thought is to listen to what you say to him and treasure it by following your teachings?
The upbringing of our children often tells us a different story, but because we neglect the importance of counterintuitive facts. How many times have we heard of reverse psychology, and how many times have we tried to apply it with our children?
The experience of Matteo and Mauro was different and turned into a story, born from the intelligence and genuineness of Matteo and the ability of Mauro to translate it into an exciting illustrated plot. Father and Son wanted to share their vision on how to look at things from different perspectives and see beauty and fun in all those things that may seem boring at first glance.
Imagine a journey into space seen through the eyes of a child, with his Captain facing new adventures and ever new challenges. A reformulation of what we would call a commitment: homework, keep in order, the naptime, everything becomes an extraordinary opportunity for fun and learning. What we usually propose in a negative form will be transformed into a positive example, turning into a challenge to improve what is a shun from tasks.
And it will be so even for the young reader of this book, your child will discover the usefulness of the little things, and you will be surprised by the effect.
NOTE: This first edition is now out of print, as the second improved edition of our book is being prepared to be published by Marshal Cavendish in May 2021!! We are happy to announce it is the beginning of a new series: Captain Fingerman!
