Having Fun Reading The Mutts Comics
*This is a sponsored Post on behalf of Mutts Comics for Elements Associates. All opinions are my own and have not been influenced in anyway.
The kids and I love reading comics. It’s such a fun way to get your children involved and excited about reading without the conventional book. One of our favorites to read is Mutts Comics.
In 1994 Patrick McDonnell created the comic strip MUTTS, which now appears in over 700 newspapers in 20 countries. MUTTS has been described by Peanuts creator Charles Schulz as “One of the best comic strips of all time.” McDonnell has received numerous awards for this strip, including the National Cartoonists Society’s highest honor, The Reuben, for Cartoonist of the Year.
McDonnell is involved with many animal and environmental charities, and is a member of the board of directors for both the HSUS and the Fund for Animals. His characters have been enlisted by the U.S. Marines for their 2006 Toys for Tots holiday poster, the American Library Association’s 2007 “Read!” poster, and by the HSUS for their humane postage stamps. The MUTTS characters appear on the New Jersey Animal Friendly license plates that fund state pet population programs. McDonnell’s website, MUTTScomics.com, promotes his animal- and earth-friendly philosophy. Consistent with McDonnell’s concern for the environment, all of the MUTTS books are printed on recycled paper.
As I read the Mutts Comics with my family and get a good laugh, I can’t help but feel like I am helping my children learn important values of compassion and empathy to our environment and animal friends.
We just finished reading The Mutts Winter Diaries which is The Mutts’ second collection for kids. If you have a chance, I highly recommend checking the book out as it is a hysterical conversation between The Mutts main characters, Earl and Mooch as they get ready to hibernate fr the winter.
To coincide with the release of the new book, The Mutts Winter Diaries, Richard Leeds International has designed a cozy nightshirt to give you the sweetest of dreams.
