Kids Book Giveaway Two

Children’s’ books are magical. There are photos. The pages turn. They’re colorful. Hello, Darling – can we have another bedtime story? That’s why we wanted to dig into our giveaway pile, and help 5 moms with a new story time adventure to read with their little ones. Below we have information about the 5 books we want to give away. Be the first to comment below and claim the book you want. We’ll contact you to get your address and send the book your way! It’s that simple.


 

 

 

…introduces preschool and primary - age children to ways of thinking and acting that will help them feel good about themselves and their lives. Meant for reading aloud, Be Positive! Includes a special section for adults with discussion questions, activities, games and tips that reinforce the lessons from the book.

 


 

 

Upbeat and true-to-life, Feel Confident! Inspires and guides preschool and primary-age children to accept and believe in themselves, ask for what they need, solve problems, show kindness to others, and make good decisions. 


 

Mommies and children from around the world come together to smile, laugh and play. Mommy’s Love begins at a mother's smiling mouth, travels to her eyes, which love to behold her little one, and continues on in a wonderful journey of the five senses. 



 

In Scaredy Kate, Kate has a problem. She's terrified of her aunt's big bulldog. Kate's aunt calls the dog Cookie, Kate calls it a monster! One day, after fleeing the apartment to escape Cookie, Kate takes the strangest elevator ride ever-complete with a mysterious package and floor after floor of real-life monsters!

 

 


 

 

Cleverly revealing the basics of reproduction in an age-appropriate way in The Baby Tree, award-winning Sophie Blackall has created a beautiful picture book full of playful details to amuse and engage readers.

The book I remember most from my childhood is I Can't Said the Ant by Polly Cameron. It was one of the first books I read. It is a wonderful poem about an ant trying to lift a fallen teapot and kitchen full of items encouraging him. You could almost sing the whole book. I found it in a thrift store the other day and am planning on sending it to my grandson! That Baby Tree book looks interesting:)
