Preparing Children for School Means Teaching Basic Skills and It's Something Racing Super Buster Shapes Can Help with

"Racing Super Buster Shapes (And You Can Too)" is an illustrated picture book for children ages 2 to 5 written by Reagent Press author Robert Stanek and designed to help teach the essential skills children need for preschool and kindergarten.

Seattle, WA, January 02, 2014 --(PR.com)-- Robert Stanek has been dreaming up stories since he was a boy, but it was only since the early 1990’s that his work began to get published. As a technology journalist, Robert (writing as William R. Stanek) has written for PC Magazine, Dr. Dobbs, TechNet Magazine and a variety of other leading magazines. As a technology writer, he’s has written for Simon & Schuster, Random House, Macmillan, Pearson, Microsoft, O’Reilly and other publishers. Of that, he says, “My many technical articles and technical books have helped millions of readers learn essential job skills and stay competitive. That’s important, especially in these troubling economic times.

Parents looking for ways to help their children prepare for preschool and kindergarten should spend some time with Robert Stanek’s books for children. His Bugville Critters books have been a huge hit with children ages 3 to 8. Now, Robert Stanek is expanding the critters stories with new learning adventures designed to help children learn essential reading and math skills.

Stanek’s first learning adventure, "Buster Bee’s Adventures with Letters and Words," had kids doing the cha-cha and pirate pigeon steps. Buster made the words and sounds the star as much as anything else as he did the cha cha, grrr’d and brrr’d his way through pirate pigeon steps and more. The book was a hit in both print and audio and continues to be one of the top-selling Bugville titles.

Now, Robert Stanek has written a book that’s all about shapes called "Racing Super Buster Shapes (And You Can Too)." In this book, the shapes are the stars (and some of the shapes are stars too). Not only is "Racing Super Buster Shapes" available in a deluxe print edition, but the book also is available in a retina display HD edition exclusively for Apple iTunes.

As the title suggests, the book features the reader favorite “Super Buster” as he helps children learn new concepts. Like its predecessors, Racing Super Buster Shapes is fun, innovative, and irreverent.

Robert Stanek quietly worked on the Bugville Critters for 15 years, satisfied with only the gleeful cheers, laughs and giggles of his children who delighted to hear his tales of Bugville and a little bug called Buster. As his children got older, they urged him to get the books published so other children could enjoy them as much as they did, and that’s exactly what Robert Stanek set out to do in 2004.

As a young child, Robert Stanek’s family was very poor. He was one of five children raised by a single mom. Books allowed Robert to escape the poverty and violence that filled his early life. “I learned so much from books,” says author Robert Stanek. “Without books to escape into as a child, I don’t know what I would have done. To me, each book was a magical window and I wanted to create that same sense of wonder in my books.”
