VeggieTales

I was offered this book in exchange for my honest opinion AND to give away on my blog! There is one story for every single day of the year which has a Bible passage, short message and prayer. My toddler is only 2.5 years old and he is able to repeat the prayers after I say them. Each page has a different veggieTales character at the bottom as well. My son loves seeing the new pictures each day, and it’s short enough that it keeps his attention. I have the book for boys – not sure if there are different stories / characters in the one for girls as I have not seen that one.

About the Book by the author:

Every Day with God is the latest 365-day devotional (one for boys and another for girls) from VeggieTales. The updated content and art offer the perfect opportunity for parent and child to share time together each day. Each entry includes a Bible verse, short devotion, Thought of the Day, and prayer. The content will help children learn more about God and develop a daily practice to keep Him close in their lives. The book is perfect for bedtime reading, family devotion time, or as a fresh way to start each day!

The Baby Sea Turtle

This is a fantastic little book, targeted at pre-school aged children, that I was sent in hard copy, in exchange for my honest review.

It has amazing textural pictures with lots of detail I found, exactly the type of book I used to read to my grade 1-2 students in art class when demonstrating a certain textural element I wanted them to try and reproduce in a picture of their choosing. I especially love how they illustrated the wet water droplets on the Momma Turtle.

This story shows a little bit about the reproduction cycle of turtles from swimming to a beach, laying eggs burying them, and then hatching 8 weeks later. It also shows what can happen if a baby turtle gets spun around, away from the sea.

Here is a quick video I made, let me know what your thoughts are about this book from the beginning few pages (and the new style of video review I’m trying!)
– and I REALLY need to review a tripod or something for iPhones for better camera steadiness I think!!!!

When We Cook Together #bookreview

This is what the FIRST page says: Jacob is six and loves to cook. He loves being in the kitchen and using the pots, skillets and utensils. Jacob loves the aroma of fresh ingredients, spices and something good baking in the oven. But most of all, he loves spending time with his Mom.

Except for being six years of age, this sounds EXACTLY like my son! Just from this page, I am in LOVE with this book. This could totally have been written about us. Even the son having blond hair, and mom having reddish brown could totally be us in 5 years (does anyone see the resemblance? I do have blue eyes.. but other than that?)

Terry Treetop and the Little Bear


It’s a beautiful, sunny day and as usual Terry is sitting up in his tree fort, enjoying the view. From his perch he spots some Cuckoo birds and cannot believe that it could already be spring. He looks around spotting other signs and realizes it is indeed spring.

Then he spots a little baby bear exploring the world for the first time, who he names Barry. He really wants to hop down and play with Barry, but just then the baby bears mother shows up and calls him back into the woods. She doesn’t look like fun to play with, so he stays in his tree, sad that they left. Very soon after, he hears the mother bear crying for help – Barry is in danger. Can Terry get him out of the hole? Will Barry and Terry be able to play together? Read the book to find out!

This fifth book in the best selling Terry Treetop series is one of my favourites so far (and I’ve read/reviewed the other four). I love how much we learn about spring, bears and their habitats. I also like that he keeps his distance from the bears, since we don’t want to send the message to young children it’s cool or okay to play with dangerous wild animals. The pictures, as always, are meaningful to the written passage and very bright/colourful. This book is suggested for children 2-8 years of age.
