Through The Adventures of Phatty and Payaso: Central Park, early chapter book readers learn about good behavior and how to treat people with kindness. Kids can identify with a character’s fear or insecurity and
experience the feeling of achievement when the character overcomes it. This is not just a book about an
adventure in Central Park, it is a book about kindness, character, and overcoming obstacles. Like the best
children’s content, though, these books have fun “inside jokes” for the parents reading along, with puns
and pop culture references for those older bedside readers.
