Fujimini's Bunny Battle!

ONCEKids, creators of the critically-acclaimed children's books Fujimini Adventure Series, celebrates the Year of the Rabbit with a Bunny inspired family friendly contest.

Fujimini Island character The Taekwondo Bunny wants to reward her friends with books, i-books and game apps.   To enter the contest is easy, just simply "Fan" ONCEKids on Facebook.  The prizes are great fun for the whole family delivering colorful imagery, encouraging peaceful, global messages and modern education.  Winners will be announced next week, just as you're Easter egg hunting.

It is the Year of the Rabbit so come celebrate with The Taekwondo Bunny! And, it is no coincidence there is another POWER bunny coming onto the scene in just a few short days. Yes, that's right, the Easter Bunny is her friend BUT she will quietly compete to be the top bunny.
ONCEKids encourages your family to enjoy technology so our ibooks and game plays great on an iPad.  However you can still travel to Fujimini Island and have fun with the animals even without a computer, by reading the print books.

So jump into the contest and decide which reading experience you want to take!

Japan Catastrophe: Saving your Furry Family

Most families have pets: dogs, cats, fish, hamsters, maybe more?  As soon as your family adopts the pet, they become a part of your family.  As a kid, your job is to love and take care of your family's pets. Play with them, walk them, feed them, clean up after them.  But what happens when there's an emergency?  What happens when your furry (or gilled) family member goes missing during a catastrophe?  Here's the rescue story of one.  Video is below.

When the Japanese Tsunami and earthquake occurred, millions of homes were destroyed.  Families were pulled apart and family went missing.  This week, amazingly, a Japanese family's pet dog was found.  He somehow stayed alive on a floating pile of rubble with a roof on top for three weeks before the Japanese Coast Guard rescued him.  Floating in the ocean off the coast of Japan, the dog was surrounded by salt water -- which like humans in the same situation, if he drank it, it would only hurt him -- luckily there was so much drinkable rain water caused by the storm, that the pup was able to stay hydrated and survive long enough to be found and rescued.
