3 new booksIn this techie world we live in, I fear that we are losing the importance of reading to our children and grandchildren because let’s face it, a lot of times they would rather play video games or watch something.  And when Mom and Dad are tired at the end of a busy day it’s sometimes easier to just give in.

We need to instill a love of reading in our kids and the best way to do that is by reading to them when they are young.  Reading opens up new worlds and allows our children’s imaginations to soar!

March is National Reading Month so there couldn’t be a better time than this to offer a giveaway of 3 new children’s books.  I received these books as a gift (I received no remuneration for reviewing them) and now I want to offer these 3 books to you in a giveaway package.

These books are in the current giveaway:

Pinkalicious and the Little Butterfly

  • Written and illustrated by Victoria Kann
  • Publisher: Harper Collins
  • On sale:  3/8/2016
  • Ages: 4-8

Pinkalicious is back with a new story about a tiny caterpillar that turns into a beautiful pink butterfly!  What little girl doesn’t love pink, right?

This newest book will not disappoint.  The story begins to unfold as Miss Penney brings caterpillars to school for the children to observe and learn about their amazing transformation into beautiful butterflies.  One little caterpillar is special to Pinkalicious and holds a special surprise!  This book is made even more special by the addition of stickers!

When Spring Comes

  • Written by Kevin Henkes and illustrated by Laura Dronzek.

Hooray for Kids!

  • Written by Suzanne Lang & Max Lang.
  • Publisher: Random House
  • On sale: 3/15/2016.

This joyful book leads us on a journey to celebrate kids of all ages and the differences between them.  The story zips along in a sing-song rhyming fashion with many different animals playing the role of children.  The book encourages our children to accept others, differences and all!

It is so important to read to your child. My grandson is in the first grade and I’m amazed at how well he reads. He has had books read to him since birth. It makes a huge difference.

I agree, it does make a huge difference both in their ability to read and their desire to read. Reading is knowledge!

We would love to see them choosing to read over watching television or playing video games, wouldn’t we. I hope your son will start reading the books again soon.

My 2 year old daughter loves to read books and loves it when I read to her. My favorite book would have to be the Going to Bed book by Sandra Boynton. She is so creative and my daughter and I laugh as we read it.

we are reading to 20 month old Nicholas every day and many times on the weekends. I believe it is very important to read at a young age as it gives them a sense of reading all the time instead of tv.

Reply
Teresa March 6, 2016, 11:28 am

I agree with you. I believe too that even if they stop reading quite as much as teenagers, they will return to their love of reading as they grow a little older and wiser!

My daughter loves the alphabet dictionary books, as she can see many different things in same book. She isn’t patient enough for me to read a story yet, so these books work really well.

Reply
Teresa March 6, 2016, 11:31 am

My granddaughter also like those and wanted to look at them over and over when she was younger.

I would love to win these for my son,he loves reading and loves books. Reading to young children helps nurture a love of learning and
instilal it in them at a young age so when they grow up they will take it with them and develop their own reading skills and love books for their entire lives

Reply

I am in complete agreement with you!

We grew up with Little Golden Books but one of my favorite was Huey , Duey, and Luey. Because they were always getting into trouble but they didn’t mean too. I have two sisters and we are very close in age. And even though we fought like cats and dogs. We had each others backs.

Teresa March 6, 2016, 1:48 pm

Little Golden Books, a great childhood memory! I have 3 sisters as well and we definitely did our fair share of fighting. Now they are my best friends!
