A conversation with AMA Supercross rider Weston Peick

by Daddy Mojo on February 23, 2018

Have you or your family ever been to Supercross? It’s madness, controlled chaos and looks like scenes that were too dangerous to put in Mad Mad: Fury Road. AMA Supercross can also be a little confusing for those first timers. Admittedly, I had no idea what structure the race had or how the racers knew exactly what to do. Even for those that know nothing about the sport, this fact is clear: Supercross is an event that the whole family will enjoy.

To get me up to speed on exactly how a Supercross race works I spoke with nine year veteran of the circuit, Weston Peick.  Peick races for Joe Gibbs Racing, has 8 career top-five finishes (450XS) and many other career highlights. Our interview with Weston Peick provides a general overview of Supercross, his non-traditional path to the sport and what it takes to succeed.

An interview with Monster Jam legend, Jim Koehler

by Daddy Mojo on February 22, 2018

You’ve heard the radio commercials, seen them on television and watched countless parodies-including our favorite, “Bart the Daredevil” from episode 8, season 2 of The Simpsons. Monster Jam is a ritual in our house and we were pumped to interview Jim Koehler. Koehler drives Avenger, is part of Team Scream and is a legend in the Monster Jam circuit. He’s been competing since 1997, loves to drive on two wheels and is a class act, as you’ll hear in the interview.

What is Monster Jam? What changes have been made since last year? What’s his favorite part of the race? If you’re a Monster Jam novice this interview will answer all of those questions. If you’re a diehard fan of Jim Koehler then you want to hear the enthusiasm in his voice as he talks about one of the best family events you’ll attend all year.

Bonus: at the Monster Jam website you can find coupons to upcoming races, as well as, videos, stats or all level of information for any fan.

Twinkle Twinkle, Little Car is a rhyming, great good night time

February 14, 2018

When the car gets off the boat it’s sleep, their eyes are halfway shut and it lurks into the garage before falling asleep. The text in Twinkle Twinkle Little Car is simple enough for second graders to be able to read fluently. However, the text is also simple enough for kindergarteners to practice their sight words. The text has a pleasant, simple rhyming structure where each line has the ending sounds the same. In most cases those words are situations where 6 year olds can read them with assistance. For example our 6 YO can read ‘blow’ and ‘show’, but they’re still sight words and he’s not fluently reading them.

All ages comics for February 14

February 12, 2018

Issue #7 is out this week in this very consistent comic book series that manages to bring the Force, as well as a variety of Star Wars characters to a young audience. In theory any age will enjoy Star Wars Adventures. However, ages 12 and younger will enjoy it the most and that’s only because ages older than that will skew up to Marvel Comics story lines. The art in Star Wars Adventures is parallel to Star Wars: Rebels, but there is enough action to maintain older audiences, humor for the younger ones and accessible art for all ages to appreciate.
