Reviews - What do customers think about Matt's Fantastic Electronic Compusonic?
Teaches children what matters most in life Jun 29, 2004
Children's books that teach children lessons are a perfect venue for opening up discussions about many things. One book, titled "Matt's Fantastic Electronic Compusonic," deals with bad habits, and addictive behaviors in children.
The story begins with a boy named Matt, who receives a computer game as a birthday gift. Matt enjoys playing this game so much, that he begins taking it everywhere with him. In fact, he chooses to play it instead of spending time with his friends and participating in other events. In the end, Matt kicks his bad habit and learns what matters most in his life.
MyParenTime.com recommends this book -- the illustrations are large and colorful, and do a good job of complementing this rhyming story. The book has a religious theme that conveys the message that bad habits (addictive behaviors) should not take the place of God in a child's life.
Great book helps kids establish priorities May 13, 2004
Today's kids are bombarded on a daily basis with "entertainment" options, most of which involve some type of screen. In the new book Matt's Fantastic Electronic Compusonic, the main character Matt faces a big decision about how he wants to spend his time. This 32 page hardcover book, released in April 2004 by Kregel publications, features eye catching illustrations by Jeannie St. John Taylor which really help convey the pace of the story.
Matt receives his awesome new "Compusonic" hand held game as a birthday gift, and it swiftly takes over his life. As Matt struggles with the choice of game vs. friends, he comes to the conclusion that nothing should come before God. The action that leads up to this ultimate choice leaves young readers caught up in the story line and concurring with the end result.
Matt's Fantastic Electronic Compusonic is aimed at readers ages four through eight years of age, but my twelve year old son read the book to his nine year old brother and both were thoroughly engaged in the story. If you have a house filled with screens and monitors, this book is a must read for your family!
