Get ready to Shout Out Boo!
We caught up with local Chester based author Darron Rodgers, who self-published his spooky children’s book Shout Out Boo. So if you love a good read that makes you jump with each turn of the page, be sure to pick up a copy.
Shout Out Boo 2 is a fun story for the kids that’s best enjoyed read out loud with animated voices!
Written by Darron Rodgers, it’s a spooky story that little ones with a healthy curiosity for the freaky will enjoy. You’ll go aboard a ghost train, traverse a haunted track, and encounter some scary characters before arriving at the end of the line.
For the readers that can make it to the end without falling into blissful slumber, you can even delve into the story further with some ‘Question and Answer’ to test comprehension and see just how well you paid attention.
“So now the ride is over, there’s just one last thing to do. Can you remember what you saw, in the land of BOO? A double-decker bus? Or some busy bumble bees? Or a snappy venus fly trap? How many did you see?”
The question and answer in the story makes the book great for varied ages, giving it a longer shelf life. For the younger children, the use of onomatopoeia brings the story alive and delights at story time, whilst the early school age children can hone their comprehension, literacy, and numeracy skills.
And if the play-like ‘read aloud’ doesn’t get you, then the pictures and colours – illustrated by Rachel Prime – surely will.
