Children are meant to explore, play and learn. A new picture book from Happy Fox Books helps to explain the joy of playing outdoors with real toys instead of staying cooped up inside on your computer. Mario and the Aliens tells the story of Mario who makes friends with space aliens who want to learn about all the cool things that earth kids do to play. Even though Mario doesn’t know anything about riding a bike or playing tag or hide-and-go-seek, he soon learns how with his alien friends.
Satisfied at having discovered the secrets of earth children, the aliens return to their planet, while Mario learns the joys of playing outside. Time spent dreaming, creating and playing is not wasted time. Lets’ go out and play.
