Captain Joe to the Rescue
Emily Madill, author

Children/Young Adult; General Fiction (including literary and historical); (Market)

The Captain Joe Series was designed as a tool for adults to teach children about constructive imagination. The four books are a fun and interactive way to introduce the concept of "Thoughts Turn into Things" (so choose the ones that make you happy) to young children, ages five to nine years. Joe and his thought-zapping superpower will invite children to use their imaginations to constructively choose thoughts that promote healthy self-esteem and self-awareness. Each picture story is designed to teach a key concept. Captain Joe to the Rescue is the first book in the series and introduces Joe and the concept of his 'thought-zapping superpower'. Children will be captivated by Joe and his encounter with Wilfred the friendly wizard. Wilfred presents Joe with a special wand that helps him take charge of his thoughts by ZAPPING away his unhappy thoughts and replacing them with ones that are happy. This introductory book is a great way to begin discussions with children around thoughts and attitudes, and their personal power in shaping them.

BC BOOKWORLD REVIEW

ALL SYSTEMS JOE reviewed by: Louise Donnelly from Vernon

Despite Degrees In Psychology and business, Emily Madill insists motherhood is the most creative and challenging job she’s had to date. Her series of four Captain Joe books encourages children to cultivate accountability and empowerment at a young age. They are designed to help generate self-esteem by helping children learn conscious control of their thoughts and moods. Captain Joe to the Rescue introduces Captain Joe who employs an invisible ‘thought-zapping wand’ to select healthy thoughts. Captain Joe Saves the Day teaches children to eliminate self-limiting beliefs as Joe saves himself from a swampy pit. Captain Joe’s Gift teaches children about the importance of being authentic and believing in themselves. Captain Joe’s Choice similarly stimulates children to choose thoughts that feel good. The four books are sold together as a set, with a teacher’s guide.
