Fiction/Interactive Picture Book

PAW Patrol is one of the most popular children’s cartoons on Nickelodeon. It came out after our kids were too old to watch cartoons, but I hear neighbor kids and my own young family members talking about it, so I know it is a favorite. This interactive book includes a wearable projector that can project the images from the book onto the wall. Plus it includes two adventures from your child’s favorite Paw Patrol characters.

Right on the inside cover of the book, it explains how to use the enclosed wrist projector. You can adjust it to fit your child’s wrist and then use the focus ring to bring the image into focus and the smaller knob changes the images. So, while reading the book, you’ll notice numbers next to images that correspond to the images on the projector. Your child can project the images while you read to them. This would work best in low lighting and on light walls. Maybe even the ceiling would work. I could see this working great during a bedtime story.

The first story is titled “Pups Save a Tooth” and involves Alex playing at the park with his grandpa and losing his tooth when he takes a bite of carrot. Unfortunately, it gets lost in the park and Alex calls the PAW Patrol for help.  Very soon, Chase, Rocky, and Ryder arrive at the park ready to tackle their mission, finding the tooth. Using a drone and a claw, the PAW Patrol works hard to find the carrot with the tooth in it, but just as it is found, another obstacle prevents them from getting it. Kids will appreciate all the silliness and difficulties faced with tracking down this carrot and tooth.

The second story in the book is “Pups Save the Songbirds”. Julia and Julius are bird-watching with their Aunt when they notice nests full of eggs but no mama birds sitting on the nests. The PAW Patrol is called to find the mama birds. First, the PAW Patrol places blankets on the eggs to keep them warm until they find the mama birds. When feathers lead the PAW Patrol to a cave, they’ll be shocked to see where all the mama songbirds have been hiding.

The PAW Patrol offers fun adventures for kids with sleuthing and being helpful. They use tools to help them along with working together to help each other. Sometimes, the PAW Patrol needs specific skills or a whole community approach and kids can benefit from these lessons.

If you have young children who are fans of the TV show PAW Patrol, then I’m sure they will love this book and wrist projector. It would make a great book to add to Easter baskets as well.
