Best Pokémon Books for Kids
My five-year-old son has been obsessed with Pokémon for over a year now. He wanted to be a Pokémon master when he was four but now he realizes that there are no wild Pokémon to catch where we live and we won’t allow him to wander the earth unsupervised. That was a sad day for everyone! Still, he continues to love Pokémon and memorizes a large database of factoids on Pokémon.
I suppose while there will never be a need to recall this information on a standardized test, it’s not so different from learning a database of factoids of information on something more educational like dinosaurs. So until he learns to read his Pokémon books on his own, I am getting my master’s degree in Pokémon. But since I seem to lose every Pokémon battle, I don’t expect to graduate.
For those seeking a book form of the Pokédex, try Pokémon: The Complete Pokemon Pocket Guide, Boxed Set, $16.99.
