Listening to the Mukies and Their Character Building Adventures

What Others Are Saying

“Written by educator and public speaker Robert Bohlken, Listening To the Mukies and Their Character Building Adventures is a very highly entertaining collection of children’s stories that are not only enjoyable in their own right as simple entertainments, but which also serve a deeper purpose. These stories (which feature a charming race of furry creatures called Mukies), teach young readers about positive values, including tolerance, learning that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and the importance of not letting emotions such as anger take control of one’s actions. School or family activities, as well as thought-provoking questions pepper this educational and recommended anthology.” -The Midwest Book Review
