A self-published author based in the South Pacific has released a book which includes educational tools for children with fun animations to boot. The book, “Character Creatures,” by author Dan Devine, is a collection of short stories which educate children on various topics, including science, geography and moral education.

‘Creatures’ features 18 short stories, as well as an illustration to accompany each. The stories include one creature with a child’s name Devine chose, as well as a certain character trait. What’s more, Devine incorporates topics such as science, with information about each creature, and geography, with information on where the creature can be found on Earth. With each story, Devine hopes, with the help of parents, spiritual values will be instilled into children.

“As parents, we know what’s best for our kids,” said Devine. “We want our kids to model certain virtues and acquire good character traits. I want to help make the world a better place with this book.”

“This is an excellent book for teaching values to children,” a reviewer wrote in a five-star review of “Character Creatures.” “Young children will want to read this book. I recommend it for parents and young children to read together.”

Colorful illustrations combined with elements of science and geography, “Character Creatures” will educate children and keep them entertained at the same time.
