We love to read in my house. I especially love if the books that I'm reading my kids help teach an important lesson. Neon TIKI Tribe is a series of 13 books. The creator was kind enough send to my family all of the books, but not for a review. I choose to let people know about the books, because I really believe they're amazing. This series is great for young kids you have to read to and older kids who can read themselves. One of the greatest things about this book series is that they use a specific font called Dyslexie for dyslexic readers.

Neon TIKI Tribe currently has 13 books for sale. I’m going to share each of them with you, and their theme. My kids have their favorites, but I have mine for a very different reason. One of the things I love about all of the books is that there is a strong sense of morals throughout. The TIKIs are great role models for children. There are four TIKIs; Dar, Zeke, Tia, and Mowah. TIKI stands for “Thoughtful Intelligent Kind Individuals.” I’m going to share each book individually with links to purchase them if you wanted to.

1 Home Run Pride: Reading With The Tribe | Theme: Family Literacy (My son's favorite, because it involves baseball.)

2 Digging Up Adventure  | Theme: Battling Boredom

3 Ethan Sparks Trouble | Theme: Fire Safety

4 Bullies: Playground Push-Around | Theme: Bullying

5 Bad Sport Braakus & The Hidden Humbug  | Theme: Sportsmanship

6 Tia & the A-Maze-ing Mirrors  | Theme: Body Image

7 Brave Hope Hospital | Theme: Hope

8 Dog Rescue Mission | Theme: Honesty (This is my daughter's favorite, because there is a puppy.)

9 Rise of Kunatos  | Theme: Perseverance

10 TIKI Beach Battle | Theme: Ocean Clean Up

11 An Exploding Beginning  | Theme: Following Good Advice

12 Gigabytes of Disaster | Theme: Internet Safety (This is one of my favorites, because it talks about how you never really know who you are talking to. Anybody could be on the other side of the computer.)

13 Strangers: The Ku Kidnapping | Theme: Child Safety (This is definitely my favorite, because we all want to keep our kids safe. Also, it teaches them not to get into the car with strangers.)

All of these books would be great for kids from around two to maybe 10. In addition to that they would make great gifts for birthday, and holidays. They're a great addition to any classroom library, or just your child's library.
