Our Homeschool Happenings with The Moodsters Feelings Detectives

"Today a reader, tomorrow a leader." - Margaret Fuller

It genuinely surprised me to discover that some of my friends and associates fail to see the value in reading. The power of reading to open up worlds of understanding is limitless. With a little research from trusted resources (niecyisms.com, perhaps), both children and adults experience key life lessons. Helping me out with our homeschool happenings, The Moodsters are once again helping our four-year old with an age-appropriate way to understand and express his feelings.

As one of The Moodsters Brand Ambassadors, I have been sponsored by The Moodsters Team with promotional items and informational content to facilitate this advertorial.

Who are The Moodsters? Imagine five cuddly and clever little detectives that help to solve the mysteries of their feelings and how to handle those feelings. The Moodsters are- Happy Yellow- Coz, Loving Pink- Lolly, Sad Blue- Snorf, Angry Red- Razzy and Afraid Green- Quigly, that will come to the rescue to help their friends, Zach and his sister,  Zoey, understand feelings.

The award-winning child development and parenting expert Denise Daniels, Founder of Jelly Jam Entertainment, has partnered with Kids Preferred to launch The Moodsters, a new line of toys and books designed to teach young children the fundamentals of feelings. The Moodsters feature three 8x8 full-color, 32-page storybooks for children ages 3 and over. The Moodsters are available exclusively in Target stores nationwide and on Target.com

Our initial introduction to The Moodsters was a pre-launch sneak peek at Meet The Moodsters Storybook and Moodster Meter™. If you have been a guest in our home, then you have had "Busy" take your feelings temperature with his Moodster Meter. The Moodster Meter is an electronic “feelings thermometer” to help little learners gain vocabulary for their feelings to help express their emotions. 

In Meet The Moodsters, bright-eyed Zach’s magic trick becomes a big mess. He discovers The Moodsters who use their detective skills and Moodster Meter to help Zach understand how he feels and how to work through his feelings. "Grab your detective hats and get ready to help The Moodsters solve the case!"

We just enjoyed reading a story by flashlight in the darkness to get the full effect of The Scary Sleepover Storybook and Feelings Flashlight™.  Bedtime stories are sometimes best read when by flashlight and while I held our regular, never-there-when-I-need-it flashlight, "Busy" had the time of his life with the Feelings Flashlight. The fun, electronic flashlight features The Moodsters images and voices, perfect for displaying on surfaces during a feelings emergency or anytime.

The Scary Sleepover storybook tells the story of the night of the tree house sleepover in the backyard. Zach soon realizes that the night is full of spooky noises and dark shadows. It's time to "Power Up, Moodsters" to help Zach to make it through The Scary Sleepover.
