Maryville, TN (PressExposure) July 20, 2012 -- Just in time for summer fun, the creative team of Valarie Budayr and Roscoe Welply have written an entertaining and educational new children's book The Ultimate Guide to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory [http://ultimateguidetocharlie.com/] that will provide hours of fun for kids and parents alike. Based on the beloved story of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the boy who wins the golden tickets and enters the magical world of Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory, this beautifully-illustrated and well-written book entices kids to enter that same magical world and join along in the adventure.
The Ultimate Guide to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is an interactive, adventure-filled delight through the Chocolate Factory, with stops along the way to create, laugh and learn. It reawakens the passion and idea of "jumping" inside the pages of this book with the knowledge that each chapter is a gateway into a magical world. Now available on iTunes, it's your opportunity to truly experience where art, literature and technology meet allowing you to feel the story like never before.
With over 20 crafts and activities for the entire family, the book brings children and parents together to re-live the wonder and amazement that Charlie experienced during his trip through Willy Wonka's world of magic and chocolate. While meandering through the factory on the Chocolate River, readers stop to learn where chocolate comes from or how gum is made. They work their way through mazes, puzzles and games, and so more much. The best part is that the adventures can be done at the reader's own pace, providing family fun throughout the summer and beyond.
By sparking the imagination and helping to develop creative thinking, it's learning without really trying with education intertwined with entertainment. Valarie Budayr states "When we weave collaborative play into the fabric of our everyday life, we open the door to transform our relationships, our viewpoints and perspectives on creating happiness, and the joy of innovating with our children. I am thrilled to be able to provide a book that brings families together reading and enjoying their imaginations."
