Award-Winning Children's book — Who’s Who with Mr. McBoom

Who’s Who with Mr. McBoom: A fun, rhyming story about family values
Written by Stephanie Logsdon; Illustrated by M.E.B. Stottmann

Who’s Who with Mr. McBoom is a story about family values.
by Stephanie Logsdon, April 2021

“There are all kinds of families, but few are like mine. The truth is that families are hard to define.”

Who’s Who with Mr. McBoom is a fun, rhyming story about family values which focuses on different families by introducing our eight main characters of Baxter’s Corner. At the end of the story we give you the opportunity to speak to your values as a family and what you think is important with your child in their early learning years. Simply ask the questions using the back of the book, you will be surprised where a conversation might lead you.

Building Character is Child’s Play®

Each Baxter’s Corner story contains a magical message for a child to learn. They are referenced in the back pages of each book; we call this our GoBeyond section. Children are motivated to make positive behavior choices as they begin to understand how their actions affect themselves and others. This begins to build responsibility and accountability.
