Stocking Stuffer Idea!

Quirk Book has released two new sets of novelty postcards that might just be the perfect stocking stuffer for someone on your gift list!

Each set of 30 postcards comes in a nicely packaged folder and retails for $9.95.


The collection opens up nicely with a foldout cover:

Here is an example of one of the postcards:

The second collection is called HUGS AND MISSES: 30 POSTCARDS OF AWKWARD ROMANCE: 
You could even save this one for an anti-Valentine's gift!

 Although I found the humor of most of the postcards a bit silly and not to my taste, I could immediately think of someone who would appreciate them!  Everyone has a friend or family member would LOVE a silly little gift this these!  Another easy way to knock a gift off your list!  Click on the covers to purchase.

(I received copies of these item from the publisher for review)

Barefoot Books Sale!

I am an Ambassador for Barefoot Books and a strong believer in their missions of publishing books with a strong emphasis in storytelling and multiculturalism.

Now through Wednesday, Barefoot is having a sitewide sale.  Get 20% off your entire order by using the code TOGETHER20 and get free shipping on orders over $60. Click on any of the cover images to shop!

Here are some of my favorite Barefoot titles:

1. My son received his first Barefoot Book at age 3. It is a singalong called ANIMAL BOOGIE. It has a fun catchy tune that encourages children to get up and move around like animals.  The book comes with a music CD that you can put into your computer to see animation.

2. I absolutely love the new release OUT OF THE BLUE. This wordless book encourages children to narrate their own story.  The illustrations are beautifully detailed and I love the message of compassion.

3.HERB THE VEGETARIAN DRAGON is a charming story about a dragon who just wants to be himself.  A great message about compassion and acceptance.

There are so many more that I can't list them all! We have fantastic singalongs, adorable board books, terrific early chapter books (especially with some non-traditional princesses) and much more!  Hurry now to shop before the sale ends!

Sale ends on December 3!

LOST AND FOUND by Brooke Davis

Review coming soon!


Although I have been doing a lot of reading, I am behind in posting. I was recently in a car accident that totaled my car and left me with injuries I am still recovering from.  The whole episode has created quite the mess in my life that I am struggling to get in order. I am so grateful that the accident wasn't worse and that my son was no in the car.

As I have been recovering, I have been doing a lot of reading.  I have a few reviews to post but I am starting to move on to Spring titles and those reviews will come out close to publication date.  Read HAUSFRAU by Jill Alexander Essbaum last week.  Wow.  Definitely watch for this one in March!

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
