The Gift of Gift - Children's Book Review and Giveaway! (3 Winners) (U.S.) Ends 1/15


Breakthrough Children’s Book Wins for Unique Story That Highlights Girl Empowerment & Diversity While Raising Money for Healthcare Non-Profit

The Gift of Gift” (from Umiya Publishing), the second book in the acclaimed Super Amazing Princess Heroes series, has been awarded the prestigious Mom’s Choice Awards® Silver Medal as one of the best children’s books of 2016.

A tale of compassion, heroism and visionary thinking, "The Gift of Gift" features the three main Super Amazing Princess Heroes – Kinney, Oceana, and Sammie – who learn that one of their Ugandan friends, a wonderful girl named Gift, is sick with a heart condition. The girls spring into action and help build a heart hospital in Uganda. Gift not only becomes healthy, but also receives another very special transformation, as she becomes a new Super Amazing Princess Hero with the power of healing. “The Gift of Gift” was written by Sanjay Nambiar, an award-winning author and the creator of the Super Amazing Princess Heroes’ series. Fine artist and sculptor Sedi Pak designed the vibrant illustrations, all of which were painted on birch plywood panels.  

Proceeds from the book are being shared with World Children’s Initiative (WCI), which built a hospital in Sri Lanka after the 2004 tsunami, as well as the African heart center depicted in "The Gift of Gift." The title character in the story was inspired by a real-life girl named Gift, who was WCI’s first heart patient in Uganda.

The Mom’s Choice Awards (MCA) is an international awards program that recognizes authors, inventors, companies, parents, and others for their efforts in creating quality family-friendly media, products, and services. Parents, educators, librarians, and retailers look for the MCA’s Honoring Excellence seal of approval when selecting quality materials for children and families.

“We are thrilled to receive this wonderful award,” notes Sanjay Nambiar, author of “The Gift of Gift.” “Because the story reinforces our brand’s commitment to diversity and empowering girls, we are honored to receive this recognition from MCA, the ultimate standard in quality, family-friendly products. Now we have the responsibility to pass this good fortune and karma forward,” he added.
For more information on the awards program and the honorees, please visit “The Gift of Gift” is available at, Barnes & Noble, in e-reader formats for the Kindle, Nook, and iPad, and through bookstores and gift shops across the country.

About the Super Amazing Princess Heroes

The primary narrative follows three wonderful girls – Kinney, Oceana and Sammie – who discover magical tiaras that transform them into princesses with super powers. In the first SAPH story, they save the prince! With a universe of diverse and fun characters from around the world, books, interactive stories, animation, games, toys, and much more, SAPH helps girls celebrate themselves while cultivating the power within.

My Review:
The Gift of Gift is the second book written by Sanjay Nambiar. The first book in the series is called "The Super Duper Princess Heroes: How It All Started (Super Amazing Princess Heroes)." My girls love female and male superheroes. It seems to be their newest obsession. Kinney becomes slow and she gets sick, with a hole in her heart. So she is sent back to America to have her heart fixed. Gift is the name of a little girl that Kinney, Oceana and Sammie have grown close with.  After Kinney has her heart repaired, Gift becomes sick with the same thing. Kinney, Oceana and Sammie build a hospital in Uganda, where Gift lives, like the heart hospitals in America to help Gift and other children in Africa with health problems so they can get help instead of waiting to be flown to America to do so. After the hospital is built, a fairy princess appears and turns Gift into a Super Amazing Princess Hero. Now she can join Kinney, Oceana and Sammie on their adventures!

It's a cute story. I feel that it's for children ages 3 to 7. As my 7 year old said that the story was ok. But of course, my 4 year old liked it.

"Storks" Movie Review & Free Printable Holiday Activity Sheets!

Disclosure: Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with "Storks" on DVD in exchange to review for this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.

Own Storks on Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack, 3D Blu-ray 
Combo Pack, Blu-ray and DVD Today or on Digital HD!

About the Storks movie:
Storks deliver babies…or at least they used to. Now they deliver packages for global internet retail giant Junior (Andy Samberg), the company’s top delivery stork, is about to be promoted when the Baby Factory is accidentally activated on his watch, producing an adorable – and wholly unauthorized – baby girl. Desperate to deliver this bundle of trouble before the boss gets wise, Junior and his friend Tulip, the only human on Stork Mountain, race to make their first-ever baby drop, in a wild and revealing journey that could make more than one family whole and restore the storks’ true mission in the world.

My Review:
I really like the Storks movie! I didn't think that it was going to be that great after hearing other people's reviews. I like that the little boy had a dream to have a sibling, and he didn't give up. The movie started around the story of the storks and how they changed from a baby delivery service to a package delivery company like amazon, or something similar. Then the big boss bird tells Junior that if he fires Tulip, the girl working/living in their company, who is now 18 years old because it's her birthday, that he can become the boss bird of the company.

Junior has trouble trying to fire her. Meanwhile, a little boy is lonely and wants a baby brother. He's going through things in his attic and finds a pamphlet about the storks and that if he wants a baby, to send them a letter. So he does! Back at the company, Tulip and Junior are in the mail room. Tulip is chatting with Junior when the little boy's letter comes into the company's mail room, and she accidentally sends it through the wrong tube, which activates the baby making machine. Then the machine creates a beautiful baby girl with pink hair and ninja skills. Junior and Tulip do everything in their power to keep the baby girl safe and to deliver her to her new family.

I laughed and I cried and my husband and three children sat still and watched the entire movie. I give it five stars! It's a must see movie during winter break if you haven't seen it already. You will love it as much as I do!

Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors – Circle of Love - Review! Available to purchase on Tuesday 12/20!

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a link to view stream "Dolly Parton's Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love" I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.

Own it on Blu-ray and DVD Tuesday, 12/20, 
and on Digital HD now!

Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors – Circle of Love was a cute movie. Different than the Coat of Many Colors. This one was a Christmas story. Dolly Parton herself makes a few appearances. I really liked seeing the angel over the family's barn after the snow is melted off the front of their house. We laughed and cried while watching this movie. I am sure we will watch it a few more times before Winter Break is over, as my seven year old daughter loves the little girl who plays Dolly!

About the movie:
Dolly Parton's Christmas of Many Colors - Circle of Love continues with the story of young Dolly Parton as the Parton Family experiences a true Christmas miracle drawing the Partons closer together than ever - with deepened faith and love for one another. The film delivers Christmas joy and peril as an unexpected blizzard threatens the Parton family while Dolly’s father (and his kids) make sacrifices to raise enough money to finally buy his loving wife the wedding ring he could never afford. Meanwhile, an important person in little Dolly’s life begins to see that her amazing voice and musical gift might just be made for something bigger than rural Tennessee.

Here's a Clip from the movie:

I had a chance to visit the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, Tennessee where the actual Coat used in these movies is currently on display! Check it out below!

Autographed by the Cast!

My daughter Hailey sitting in front of the Display.

Disclosure: I received a link to stream the movie on my laptop, but I didn't do it because we recorded it on our dvr. I didn't receive any compensation for posting about this movie. I simply did so out of the kindness of my heart and because I feel it's a great holiday movie for families.

North Pole Kids Club #Review! #HolidayGiftGuide #HGG2016

The North Pole Kid's Club Official Membership Kit contains a North Pole Kid's Club Official Handbook, a Letter from Santa, an Official Elf Hat, Santa's Magic Key, Elf Certificate, and so much more!

The handbook includes a Kid's Club Elf Meter that gives the kids 6 activities to complete like reading the story, cleaning the house to get it ready for Santa and Christmas, making reindeer food, do something nice and helpful for someone else, do a craft or entertain others, and to have some family time, another craft or a Christmas Tradition. When all of these activities are complete, the child or children become fully-trained North Pole Kids and part of the North Pole Kid's Club!

The magic key is to be hung on the front door to lead Santa straight to your Christmas tree or next to their stockings. After Santa uses the key, he often puts it on the Christmas Tree.

There's also directions to make Magic Reindeer Food, Finley's Favorite Cookie, a Night Before Christmas Checklist, Arts & Crafts Instructions and much more!

My Review:
My children really enjoyed finding their boxes brought to them by their Elves! The opened them up, checked out the book, activity books, put on the hats, read the letter from Santa, and found the Magic Key!

I really like the North Pole Kid's club Kit! Out of all of the different and unique kid's things like Elf on a Shelf and Magic Key's with a storybook, this one is the best! The looks on my children's faces were priceless! I couldn't do or create anything on my own that would have brought them so much joy and curiosity as to why they got them! Why would Santa send these special kits to them! We are really enjoying doing the activities together and we already made our reindeer food!

HURRY and order yours today at! The sooner you order it, the better!

My Review:
I love personalized children's story books and products! "Princess Dream Big" children's book is super adorable! Each page you turn has a new story about a different princess. On each page, there's a little personalized space either asking what your child's favorite treasures are, or letting her write down her favorite songs or foods. My four and a half year old daughter and her older sister have read and re-read this book many times. They really enjoy sharing it and reading about the princesses.
