Duck and Hippo Give Thanks Book Tour Stop

Posted on November 21, 2018 in 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

Duck and Hippo Give Thanks is a great book, and my 7 year old loves it.  With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I thought this would be the perfect book for bedtime, last night.  Jacob listened to the tale, and really got it.  I was so excited when he started asking me questions, about what I had just read.  Jonathan London is an excellent writer, and he got this book perfectly right!

Duck and Hippo Give Thanks has a lot of illustrations by Andrew Joyner, and they are so colorful, and made Jacob really look twice, we discussed the pictures, as well.  He really enjoyed the book, and asked if we could read it again tonight.  I told him, “Of course, but this time you will read it to Mommy”, and he agreed.  I’m trying to help him read, so what better way, than to have him read this wonderful book to me?  I can’t wait, to be honest!

Duck and Hippo are thankful for good friends!

It’s the day before Thanksgiving, and Hippo has his heart set on having a good old-fashioned feast with Duck and their friends. Together, Duck and Hippo go shopping for food and invite Turtle, Elephant, and Pig to share the special day with them. Then they get everything ready. But while Hippo goes to bed dreaming of his good old-fashioned Thanksgiving, Duck is busy making her own plans. There’s going to be a BIG surprise—one that will remind Hippo of all he has to be thankful for. Join Duck and Hippo for a memorable celebration!

Once Upon a Book Club is Fantastic!

Posted on November 9, 2018 in 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

I’ve never been so excited about a product.  I’ve been wanting to try Once Upon a Book Club for a while, so when it came across my desk, I couldn’t refuse.  It’s so cool how you get an amazing book, and products for certain pages of the book.  This month’s box was fantastic.  I don’t read much, but I really got into it, and now my daughter, age 21, wants to borrow it.  I am super excited about this amazing product.  You can get 1 month for $35, or 3 months for $100, so save yourself some money and go for the 3 month subscription.  You won’t regret it.

If you are an avid reader, you will love Once Upon a Book Club.  My daughter is borrowing this weekend, and she reads constantly.  She’s going to school to be a teacher, so she has to read a lot.  But, I’m sure she will love this as much as I do, and I’m not big into reading.  This was one of the most fantastic reviews that I’ve ever gotten to do though.  I was able to keep up, and understood what I was reading.  The book was so special to me.  And, the products that go with the book were amazing.

Once Upon a Book Club would be the perfect gift for someone, this Holiday Season.  They will love it, if they love to read, or even if they don’t get into it much.  I wasn’t sure how I’d react, but I’m so intrigued.  I loved it, and am definitely going to subscribe, after the rush of the Holidays.

Duck On A Disco Ball Book Tour

Posted on October 30, 2018 in 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

My 7 year old, son, loves Duck On A Disco Ball.  We have read it every night, for the last week.  He’s been home sick, from school, and this gave us something to read.  Who would’ve imagined he’d get an illness and be home for 4 days.  I’ve read it to him numerous times, and he’s gone to sleep while I’ve read it.  He’s also read, and followed along, as well.  He’s a very smart boy, but the way this book is written, is superb.

Every night it’s the same old story.  A boy wants to stay up late, and his parents won’t let him.  But sometimes in the morning, he notices things look  a little off – like when he wees a disco ball in the kitchen . . . with his toy duck on it.  So one night he diecides to stay up.  And that’s when the fun really begins.

Silliness builds with each page of this high-energy, pun-filled companion to Duck in the Fridge until the moment when sleep eventually takes hold and morning arrives once more.

 

You’ll love this book, as much as your kids will.  Once my son has had enough, I’m going to send it to school with my daughter, who is teaching.  The kids will love it.

The Kid’s Awesome Activity Book has a lot of fun activities for you child

Posted on October 10, 2018 in 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

Jacob, age 7, loves The Kid’s Awesome Activity Book.  It’s got Puzzles, and Mazes, doodling pages, and more.  This book has provided us with hours of fun, and we still have more to do.  There’s over 400 stickers, and Jacob loves them so much, that he doesn’t want to use them.  100 wacky prompts, games and crafts, and Jacob loves it all.  There’s even a pull out poster in the back, that is now on Jacob’s wall.

This book is aimed for your child ages 4 through 8, but you can use it for slightly older kids, too.  Your child will have as much fun with The Kid’s Awesome Activity Book, as mine is having.  What a wonderful Christmas gift this year.  It’s inexpensive, so if you have more than 1 child, buy more than 1 book.  This book really does have everything in it, and your child will love how many hours of fun they have.  And, mine, who is very much into electronics, loves this book so much, that he takes time away from the electronics to do a few pages a day.  We spend about an hour a day doing things out of this book.  I’ve even made copies of the pages he really likes, so we can do it again and again.

With just a pencil and their imagination, readers can decode pirate word scrambles, create their own comic strips, write a hit song for the hedgehog hoedown, and help a little leprechaun find his pot of gold.

5 Winners! $20 Amazon Gift Card & Pamela Newton’s Book “A Candle For My Mother” Giveaway!

Posted on May 22, 2018 in Giveaways

Sponsored By: Pamela Newton

Hosted By: Love, Mrs. Mommy

*~* 5 Winner Giveaway! *~*

Grand Prize Winner will receive a:
$20 Gift Card To Amazon & a Copy of the Book “A Candle for My Mother”

4 Runners-up will receive a:
copy of the book “A
Candle for My Mother”

Author: Pamela
Newton
About the Book:

A Candle for My
Mother
is an inspirational story of a young woman from the Midwest,
Lorraine Newton, who longed to travel the world despite being the mother of
four young children. “I’m going to see places, come hell or high water!”
Lorraine remarked, and she made it happen.

Lorraine’s stories in the book are told in her own words from tape
recordings she made before she died, and letters saved by a friend,
detailing Lorraine’s family’s amazing experiences in Iraq and travels in
Europe. Into the bubbling political cauldron of the Middle East in the
1950s ventured an American family. Iraq was not necessarily what Lorraine
had in mind, but the country fit exotic to a tee. It conjured up “Ali Baba
and the Forty Thieves,” markets filled with silks and gold, and travel in
Europe on vacations. Lorraine was about to embark on a grand adventure.

Pamela Newton never felt closer to her mom than when she was traveling,
sometimes logging over 100,000 miles a year: “Mom’s adventurous spirit was
with me on every trip, in every country, encouraging me to make the most of
each moment.” The things that Pamela experienced on her business trips
often triggered a remembrance of her mother and her childhood. Those
memories became the reflections and gratitude’s that Pamela expresses at
the end of each chapter when visiting churches across the globe to light
candles for her mother, a tradition she began in Westminster Abbey.

For readers who may be reminded of exciting memories from their childhood,
A Candle for My Mother has been designed with pages interspersed throughout
for writing personal reflections. Here a son or daughter can add their
favorite pictures, recount “Best Day Ever” times, write a thank you to
their mom, or include poems, musings, or thoughts. It is designed to be a
gift to oneself or one’s mom. Read it, write in it and then give it to your
mother…with gratitude.
