The Color Monster: A Pop-Up Book of Feelings - Children's Book #Review and #Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 9/26 #ChildrensBooks #TheColorMonster #PopUpBook


The Color Monster: A Pop-Up Book of Feelings deviates from the standard identification of numbers, letters, colors, and shapes to instead illustrate commonly felt emotions, including happiness, sadness, anger, fear, and love.

We teach toddlers to identify colors, numbers, shapes, and letters—but what about their feelings? By illustrating such common emotions as happiness, sadness, anger, fear, and calm, this sensitive book gently encourages young children to open up with parents, teachers, and daycare providers. And kids will LOVE the bright illustrations and amazing 3-D pop-ups on every page!

My Review:
My six year old said that it was very cool. We enjoyed reading about the different feelings. My daughter said that they were similar to those on a recent children's movie with five feelings! The 3-D Pop-Up pages are super neat and they really help to make the book come alive. Great book to read most anytime, day or night and anytime of year.

Mind Your Monsters - Children's Book #Review and #Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 9/26 #MindYourMonsters #ChildrensBooks


In Catherine Bailey’s Mind Your Monsters, Wally’s town is terrorized by vampires, zombies, werewolves, and the like, until finally he discovers the magic word—please!—to make them stop. Vidal’s bright, colorful illustrations has each monster baring a cheerful, toothy grin as they make a giant mess of the small town they’ve turned into their playground. Learning good manners has never been as monstrously fun!

My Review:
Mind Your Monsters is a nice story about some Monsters who are destroying the town that Wally lives in. He tries tricks and treats, but nothing works. Wally has finally had enough of these Monsters games, and he says "Will you please stop?" And the monsters finally stop. He asks one of them to please move out of his way, and the monster moves. Then the towns people and Wally start to get along and have fun together. Then the monsters leave the town and go back home, but the promise to come back and visit, because Wally says PLEASE!

Great book for teaching children the word Please! I feel that it also opens up the door to teach children about other manners too. I feel that this book is perfect for children ages 3 to 8!

Monster Trouble - Children's Book #Review and #Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 9/26 #MonsterTrouble #ChildrensBook


Monster Trouble! (Sterling Publishing) by Lane Fredrickson is the rhyming story of adorable Winifred Schnitzel and the monsters who terrorize her each night. She’s not afraid, of course! She just wants them to leave her in peace so she can get some sleep. But scaring away monsters is no easy task. The fearless, African-American protagonist is sure to help children overcome their fear of monsters, and the delightfully sweet ending will have them begging for an encore. This wonderful addition to diverse picture books is the perfect bedtime story on Halloween night.

My Review:
Monster Trouble is a cute rhyming children's book about a little girl who learns how to deal with the Monsters that keep her awake a night. She tries baiting them with traps, then with bad stinky cheese, with a pokey chair and more. Nothing works until she's in such a deep sleep and she's dreaming of puppies one of the monsters wakes her up, and she kisses him! Then the monster starts to freak out, so she starts kissing all of them and they finally leave her alone at night to sleep. Great children's book to teach your children to deal with their own monsters that they fear at night when the lights go out.

Dining with...Monsters!: A Disgusting Way to Count to 10! #Review and #Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 9/26 #ChildrensBooks #DiningWithMonsters


For toddlers, European import Dining with...Monsters!: A Disgusting Way to Count to 10! (White Star Publishers) offers a humorous, rhyming introduction to numbers.

What do hungry monsters like to eat? 1 spider swallowed whole, 2 leaping frogs, and 3 entire whalesfor the ogre with gigantic claws and scales! And for Mr. One-Eye, four mice are very nice. Kids will enjoy this fun feast of a counting book, with 10 colorful creatures and their meals of grasshoppers, scorpions, owls, and prickly porcupines. Foldout pages and simple, humorous rhyming text make this a delight to read aloud.

My Review:
Dining With... Monsters! is a cute children's rhyming book with adorable Monsters inside who eat various things like bats, owls, mice and more. Each monster eats a certain amount of something starting with the number 1 and ending with 10. I had my six and three year old girls laughing by the end of the book because I was doing each page/number with a different voice! They got a kick out of it.

Supernatural: The Complete Tenth Season #Review!



Synopsis:
After Dean Winchester lost his battle with power-mad angel scribe Metatron last season, he was resurrected by the power of the First Blade and transformed into a demon, cursed with the Mark of Cain. The road to recovering wayward Dean takes brother Sam down sinister paths himself, with consequences that will shake the boys to their core. The Winchesters’ angelic comrade-in-arms Castiel must pick up the pieces in the aftermath of Metatron’s campaign to overtake Heaven. With his divine “grace” failing and rogue angels still loose, Cass faces the ticking clock of his own mortality while all-new and ages-old threats again push our heroes to their human and otherworldly limits. At the same time, the King of Hell, Crowley, must deal with dissension within his own twisted family. Supernatural: The Complete Tenth Season will unleash your inner demon and hold you spellbound.

My Review:
I have been watching Supernatural since it started and I even watch TV shows that Sam & Dean were in before Supernatural. It's one of my favorite shows and one I can't wait to see more of! I do hope they come up with some better story lines for Season 11 though. Dean still has the Mark of Cane which Sam is trying to figure out how to get it off of him. Heaven is falling apart, again! Which leaves you wondering what is going to happen to Heaven and great angels like Cass. Crowley's Mom keeps trying to interfere with Sam & Dean's relationship with Crowley. They were working together to keep the peace. And now Crowley's mother has messed things up, again.
