Megan Owlet - Children's Book #Review! #MeganOwlet

Megan Owlet doesn’t want to play basketball, learn karate, or practice the violin. Every day she goes and cheers her brothers on as they take part in their own activities, but one morning she wakes up and realizes she’s bored! It’s time for Megan to find something of her own to do. After an unsuccessful brainstorming session with her animal friends, Megan stumbles upon a dance studio, and with an excited screech she begins to dream big dreams of whirls and twirls. Dancing is trickier than Megan expected, but with a little help from her brothers, Megan can do anything!

From debut author and illustrator Beth Anne Maresca, Megan Owlet teaches children to pursue their own dreams and to be brave in making them happen. This is a story about love, support, and family, and parents and children alike will be enchanted by its heartwarming ending and beautiful watercolor illustrations.

The suggested age range for this book is 3-5 years old, but my six year old daughter loves it!

My Review:
Megan Owlet spends her weekends with her parents and brothers following them from activity to activity, but Megan doesn't have something that is her own. Megan tells her family that she wants an activity too, and her brothers have lots of ideas of what she could do. Of course, they suggest that Megan do the activities that they like to do to their sister! So Megan tries them all, but none of the activities were right for her. Then Megan Owlet and her mother leave to pick up her brothers and on their way, she spots a Dance School! Megan tries to dance at the dance school and she doesn't do well. So her brothers volunteer to show her how to jump, balance and kick and to help her move to a beat! Her brothers help Megan for weeks to prepare for a dance recital. Megan gets nervous and freezes when the curtains open, until her brothers begin cheering for her! Megan takes a deep breath and starts to dance on stage! 

Megan Owlet is an adorable children's book that shows children that they can be anything they want to be and do anything they want to do with some help, some practice, but most of all, with support from your family.

Animal Gas: A Farty Farce - Children's Book #Review and #Giveaway (2 Winners)! (U.S.) Ends 7/26 #AnimalGas

We love "Animal Gas!" My children and I were laughing so hard! My husband is always telling me that his farts smell like roses. Of course he's joking. Let's be honest, farts don't smell nice a majority of the time. My children are three, six and almost eight, so to them, farting is hilarious! I did different voices for the different characters, it made the book even funnier!

If your looking for a cute, funny children's book to read to your children, "Animal Gas" is a must! Great for vacations to lighten the mood. Especially if your trapped indoors due to heat and/or rain, or both.

Here is an excerpt from the book:
“‘I foof in the night
as well as the day.
It smells like perfume
and flowers in may.’

‘Perfume…? Flowers…?
Now that’s quite a leap.
Try mold and some beans
all piled in a heap.’”

Every child—and plenty of adults—know that nothing's funnier than a fart joke. And it's also a universal truth (and mysterious fact) that people don't mind the smell of their own farts, while everyone else’s should be avoided at all costs. Animal Gas: A Farty Farce (Sterling Children’s Books) by Bryan Ballinger explores this hilarious concept through a parade of wacky animals who describe why they don't think their own farts stink—against the truth about how they REALLY smell! Ballinger’s comical and detailed illustrations give the characters their own personalities while skillfully using imagery to relay their different scents.

Follow #AnimalGas on Twitter for some fun and hilarious Animal Gas extras, including original illustrations, songs, videos, a book trailer, and more!

"Animal Gas: A Farty Farce" is now available for purchase! It's also on Amazon for $8.08!

Enter below using the Rafflecopter form for a chance to win your own copy of "Animal Gas: A Farty Farce" (2 Winners)! Giveaway open to residents who live in the main 48 United States only. No P.O.Boxes please.
