Fuzzwippers are friendly creatures that reach out to anyone who needs to be assured they are wanted and needed. Children of all ages will be fascinated by these new-found friends who whisper to them in the language of Imaginarius and accompany them wherever they go. Introduce your children to their very own Fuzzwippers! Hello, We’re the Fuzzwippers is the first book of the Fuzzwipper series which promotes self-esteem, socio-emotional health, and life skills for children through the power of story.

My Thoughts
Hello, We’re The Fuzzwippers, by Maryilynn Halas has a great message for kids, “You are loved, no matter what.” It is a great feeling for kids to know that no matter how overwhelming this world can be at times they will always be loved. I think the best part about children’s books in general is that they are a great reminder for parents and caregivers of the true important things to teach your children. This book says it loud and
clear in six easy words, “You are loved, no matter what.”

I believe this book is the introduction to the idea of the Fuzzwippers and there will be more books in the series where they will introduce individual Fuzzwippers, their buddies and their adventures. This first book, Hello, We’re The Fuzzwippers did not have a story or plot. It was very general about the Fuzzwippers themselves and the book seemed a little confusing to me because I really was waiting for a story to form, but it didn’t. It did set up the concept of where the Fuzzwippers came from, what they can do, that they are not to replace family or friends, and that they can be a security for your child.

Keeping in mind the fact that I knew there was not a story for my four-year-old son to follow I asked without sharing my thoughts what he though and what the book was about. He did get the message the author was trying to convey, he said, “ he liked it and you are loved no matter what.” That was the most important part therefore we will be looking forward to other books in this series. The illustrations are bright and colorful and were my son’s favorite part.
