FOR KIDS AND PEOPLE EVERYWHERE JUST TRYING TO DO THE RIGHT THING

[By the way, I have a few paperback copies I am giving away for Xmas. If you’re in Ottawa Canada and would like to drop by and get a copy, let me know, bruce.firestone@century21.ca. These proof copies have a few spelling errors in them (an absolute no-no in any book but especially one written for kids–my fault all the way–so you can have some fun with your children by finding them, OK?) My apologies in advance…]

I wrote this learning outcome tale (The true story of Inky, Pinky and the troublesome tattoos) for children ages 3 to 9. It’s about a boy named Inky who is around 10-years old when we first meet him.

He’s a superhero with a special gift! Can he run faster than a speeding locomotive? No. Can he jump over tall buildings with a single bound? Nope.

Instead, he makes his friends happy simply by touching them with his index finder.  There’s only one problem though.  Every time he touches someone, he leaves behind a small Inky tattoo! Which looks like this:

An Inky tattoo (actual size)

Everyone is happy except Inky. Will he ever be able to have a special friend of his own? He thinks: Who would ever want to be friends with me? Every time I touch them, they get another Inky tattoo!

This fun, interactive and heartwarming learning outcome book includes a paper craft for kids and kids-at-heart—it’s a game called Bananas. It’s designed to teach children the power of positive and negative numbers. If you roll with a die a 4, 5 or 6, you move forward, but if you roll a 1, 2 or 3, you go backwards, so a dice roll of, say, 5 and 2, make 3 not 7!

Go Bananas!

There is an online tutorial, which I recorded, that teaches you the rules of Bananas, https://youtu.be/57XPVec3a1Q

If anyone wants to make a contribution to a poor professor (moi), you can purchase an e-copy of The true story of Inky, Pinky and the troublesome tattoos here, https://brucemfirestone.com/product/the-true-story-of-inky-pinky-and-the-troublesome-tattoos/ or buy a POD, print on demand, paperback from Amazon here, https://www.amazon.ca/true-story-Pinky-troublesome-tattoos/dp/1796966886/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=inky+and+pinky&qid=1606676303&s=books&sr=1-1

Here’re a few lessons that Inky and Pinky learned:

-two wrongs don’t make a right

-it’s better to talk than fight

-don’t steal things that don’t belong to you

-don’t break things that don’t belong to you

-there are no shortcuts to learning or happiness

-friends you can trust, people you can count on, getting outside, getting some exercise, being part of a team and having fun are super important
