Home Schooling Mom with some Mokie & Bik love…

My Mokie and Bik books have never really hit the mainstream (I’m guessing the problem starts with the title: no one is sure how to pronounce it – and the nonsense words inside get even scarier…) but the people who risk it seem to love it.

So you can see why this home schooling mom’s blog made me smile!

My Story; Life with the Engelman Family: Mokie & Bik…

Mokie & Bik…

I have to say that reading to my kids is always a neat adventure! We learn so many things within the words of a book, we also visit magical places, and faraway lands! Sometimes its a train, a castle, an old lady, or in this case the decks of a boat called Bullfrog! Mokie and Bik by Wendy Orr Illustrated by Jonathon Bean; I would by far say this is the BEST book we have read this year! It so neat and the words within it are so funny…Mokie and Bik are twins who live on a boat named bullfrog, they have all these adventures upon this boat and the sea they are in. They call a fish a fisk, their dad a parrot, and the small emergency row boat Tadpole! Its the cutest book, and I am not going to tell you a lot about it because I believe that if you have a child or children that are oh 5-10 years old you should read it to them, with them or let them read it!
