Neon Tiki Tribe - Kid's Books with Moral Stories and Dyslexic Font

 The Neon Tiki Tribe is a team of super-positive super-heroes featured in this all-new book series. Showcasing rich colors, moral stories, and a font created to help the nearly 1 in 10 kids with dyslexic symptoms, these books all have a moral story.

 I was recently given a chance share these wonderful books with our friends thanks to Mommyparties. The Neon Tiki Tribe members use special sunglasses that give them super powers to help defeat the The Evil Ku Tiki Tribe. Tiki stands for Thoughtful, Intelligent, Kind, Individual, which every parent hopes their child grows to become just that. Mowah, Zeke, Tia, and Dar with the help of Greg, take children on an adventure to do what is right.

 We were given three books to try out. In Book 1: Tiki Beach Battle, Zeke discovers someone has been dumping trash into the water. The team also finds some animals that have been effected by the trash and it is up to them to find out who is responsible and put a stop to it. Tiki Beach Battle teaches kids the damage that can be done when we don’t take care of our trash.

In Book 2: Dog Rescue Mission, the Neon Tiki Tribe helps a neighbor whose dog is missing, they use their special sunglasses to find the dog, but they ruin into trouble and the Evil Ku Tiki Tribe. “Dog Rescue Mission” teaches kids about the importance of honesty and the courage of telling the truth.

In Book 3: Playground Push around, a girl named Mya is being bullied and she turns to the team to learn how to deal with it. This book really hit home for me as bullying is a huge issue with school age children these days.

 My children do not have any learning difficulties but I know several of their classmates do, I was very happy to hear that these books are printed with a special font called Dyslexie, , a revolutionary new typeface designed specifically for individuals with dyslexia. My brother suffers from Dyslexia, however these books gave him a chance to finally read stories to his 3 year old daughter.

The kids had a blast acting out scenes from the stories using the special "sunglasses". We took advantage of the beautiful weather and had our party outdoors with a bonfire. We roasted marshmallows and hot dogs. And listened to the stories by the fire. It was such a nice get together that we decided to make it a weekly thing even when I do not have goodies to share.

I was given several copies of the books, 2 shirts, 2 posters, and the glasses for this party from Mommyparties/MomSelect, no other compensation was given and all opinions are my own. Only children whose parents gave permission are featured in the pictures.
