A Growing Series Of Classics


Children love cartoons. Children love a series. Salty Splashes has both.

“Salty Splashes books deliberately mix full-page illustrations with great stories so boys and girls, from preschool to third grade and beyond, are drawn into the important habit of reading. With this in mind, you may learn to appreciate the benefits of our books, even beyond their colorful cartoon art, and realize what makes them stand out from the rest is much deeper than what meets the eye.” ~ Randy Lee Morkved, President and Publisher, Balcony 7 Media and Publishing

What’s The Suitable Salty Splashes Age?

  • Pre-Schoolers: Perfect for story time. Spunky cartoon characters, full-size illustrations, and humorous adventures draw kids in. Adults appreciate the life lessons woven into the stories, which give rise to natural discussion topics during story time. Ramp up read-alouds through role-play; there are plenty of “acting” roles in each book.
  • Beginners & Intermediates: Reading tools. Each book introduces a wide variety of words within the literary style of rhyming fiction or metered rhyme, depending on the title. Full-page illustrations accompany every page turn, enhancing reading comprehension with visual storyboards. Get a child started by helping them read through a few times. The story, dialogue and rhyming words aid retention and propel independent reading.

“A book that can be introduced to preschoolers, and remain interesting as children grow to become independent readers, is a treasure.” ~ JZ Bingham, Salty Splashes Author and Literacy Advocate
