Want to teach your children about perseverance and dealing with consequences? Here is a super fun story that can help.

10 lucky MoMs will each win a copy of The Adventures of Triz the Babysitter by Haydn & Damien Crespan (Valued at $19.99 each).

Set in pre-historic times, Triz is the story of a small flying lizard. Entrusted by his good friend Marjorie, to babysit her unhatched egg for the day, things don’t quite go quite as planned. Faced with challenge after challenge and staring death in the face at every turn, does he give up? Not a chance….

About The Author and Illustrator

Damien born in Townsville and Haydn in Mt Isa, these Queensland brothers have endured some significant challenges throughout their lives. Born with Asperger’s syndrome, these boys have had to deal with much adversity. They have however, been truly gifted with the ability to illustrate and write, with Damien also having the added challenge of being colour blind. Currently working as a freelance artist, Damien is also collaborating with his brother on an eight-part series for television. Signed with Agency 888, Haydn is currently working as an actor and also writes children’s stories in his spare time.

This debut book from brothers Damien and Hayden Crespan shows their personal connection with the character Triz. Triz was created to represent the Crespan brothers own perseverance in dealing with the many challenges that their disabilities have presented them with. They feel this character and his journey should be a solid example of how, no matter what life throws at you, if you persevere and can accept that sometimes you may fail and you are prepared to face the music, and learn from your mistakes, you will succeed.

  • They adore being read to

  • I’ve always read books to my son since he was a newborn and now we love to read together. We enjoy it as it broadens the vocabulary and it’s so relaxing and enjoyable.

  • Reading is knowledge…. (With the right books)

  • My grand daughter loves reading books, she simply reads and always wants to buy new books to read.

  • We love reading books just before bed time it a good way to wind the kids down

  • Reading brings our family together, we all enjoy a different book before going to bed every night.

  • I love that reading can take me and my children to another world! My children love sharing their favourite books and acting out scenes from books. I feel happy knowing I’ve created a literacy-rich environment that provides my children with opportunities to explore and use literacy through their day.

  • It is a great way to spend quality time together and also learning

  • We love it because it’s our little before bed tradition to snuggle up together and read the same book 6 or so times before little miss decides that she’s had enough and is ready to nod off! We love making up little stories based off the pictures without actually reading a lot of the time!

  • Because its a release and takes you into a world outside of your own

  • I don’t have kids, but I have cousins that are both 2 and 4. Reading with them is a great way to connect with them and have a bit of fun and relaxation. It is also really enjoyable letting them hug me while im reading, especially when it’s tense.

  • It’s the conversations that we have about the images and story that make it really special. We are reading to learn together

  • my kids have great imaginations and get a lot of play ideas from stories

  • We read together every night. We have done since my daughter was a baby. There is both magic in the story, but also the quiet time we spend together as a family.

  • My son loves the funny voices I do when we read. It is a real bonding time with lots of laughs.
