The Leaky Story - Children's Book Review and Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 5/7

THE LEAKY STORY is an action-packed adventure into the wonderful world of books, the power of the imagination, and the importance of family.

A book sits abandoned on a living room shelf. While the Blossburn family happily watches TV and plays video games, the book aches to be read. Slowly it starts to swell, and then it leaks. At first it’s only a small trickle, but when pirates sail out of the book, the family must band together to reclaim their living room! Ages 4-7 years EK Books/imprint of Exisle Publishing.

About the Author:
Devon Sillett is a former radio producer, turned writer and reviewer. Born in the US, Devon now lives in Australia. She is currently completing her PhD on children’s picture books at the University of Canberra, where she also teaches in the writing department. In 2013, Devon was awarded the Australian Postgraduate Award for her research into YA speculative fiction. In her spare time she can be found building Lego superheroes and playing tiny plastic musical instruments with her young sons Aaron and Jay, or reading next to her husband Matthew.

About the Illustrator:
Anil Tortop was born and raised in Turkey, moving to Australia in early 2011. In addition to illustrating books, Anil works as an animator and character/concept designer. She lives with her husband in Brisbane.

My Review:
"The Leaky Story" is a cute book about adventure! The Leaky Story book can't contain itself any longer. It starts with a leak and floods the living room with water, sea creatures and pirates! It made my children and I want to read another new book to see what was inside! We love reading books, but we especially love new adventures too! I see a pirate party in our future, maybe for my almost five year old daughter!

"The Leaky Story" is available for purchase at your local book retailers or online at

Is Genesis History? DVD Review and Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 4/30 #IGHL3

About the film:
IS GENESIS HISTORY? features over a dozen scientists and scholars explaining how the world intersects with Genesis. From rock layers to fossils to lions to stars, this fascinating film will change the way you see the world. The film shines new light on our origins, providing a positive case for creation in six normal days, a real Adam and Eve, a global flood, and a tower of Babel. Dr. Del Tackett, creator of “The Truth Project,” serves as your guide—hiking through canyons, climbing up mountains, and diving below the sea—in an exploration of two competing views … one compelling truth.

Film genre: documentary
Run time: 118 minutes (film: 101 min,  Q&A/ credits: 17 min)
Recommended age: 12+ (due to complexity of content, it may be more difficult for younger children to understand).
  • Themes
  • Creation and science
  • Origins
  • Age of the Earth
  • …all based on the book of Genesis

My Review:
Is the Grand Canyon proof that the earth had a great flood thousands of years ago? Mary, Jesus's mother's genealogy goes all the way back to Adam, then the earth can't be very old. In Arizona, 70 miles away from the Grand Canyon, the rock formations contain the same rock layers. There's also a lack of erosion between the layers of the rock formations to mean that the earth isn't as old as we think it is.

What was the history of the world according to Genesis?

The bible records historical events, but doesn't explain how they happened. The evidence is inside the rocks. There's growing evidence of many things that point to Genesis being actual history of the Earth.

There's tissues and cells inside the dinosaur bones that are making scientists think that the bones are no more than 4,000 or 5,000 years old.

The history of Genesis is important to your Christianity.

Genesis is what happened. Science is how it happened!

The above statements are those from the film. I really enjoyed watching it. As it helped me to understand the bible and science better. I am going to take some time and re-read Genesis again!

Peanuts by Schulz: Go Team Go! DVD Review & Giveaway! (3 Winners) (U.S.) Ends 5/7/17

Disclosure: Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with free copies of the DVD I am giving away in this giveaway post. No other compensation was exchanged or received.




Two-Disc DVD Includes 19 Episodes
for Over Two Hours of Peanuts Cartoon Fun!

This spring, Peanuts fans can get set for exciting, animated sports action with Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s (WBHE) DVD release of Peanuts by Schulz: Go Team Go! This all-new collection features sports-themed cartoons from the newly launched Peanuts cable television series. Titled Peanuts by Schulz: Go Team Go!, this release includes 19 shorts, which are based on the legendary print comic strip created by Charles Schulz.

Revisit some of Schulz’s most captivating comic strips from the 50 year history of Peanuts with this brand- new animated cable television series, based on some of the most endearing Peanuts themes. These delightful new cartoons are based directly on original Peanuts print comics, which are brought to life via beautifully animated vignettes that recreate the look and feel of Schulz’s iconic strip. Peanuts by Schulz: Go Team Go! features over two hours of sports-themed tales. From baseball and football to tennis and ice skating, the Peanuts gang learns the values of winning, losing, friendship and good sportsmanship in this entertaining release. Join Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the rest of the gang for some good, old-fashioned fun and games. Go Team Go!

“Over the years, Charles Schulz’s beloved Peanuts characters have been brought to life in so many different forms.  These cartoons are inspired by the original Peanuts newspaper comic strips and give us an opportunity to enjoy these special characters in their most authentic form,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Vice President Family & Animation Marketing. She added, “Peanuts by Schulz: Go Team Go! is a title that no Peanuts fan will want to miss. We’re delighted to offer another release of this charming series to fans.”

My Review:
My children and I enjoy watching the Peanuts animated shows. These ones kept making me laugh. Watching Snoopy and Woodstock stealing the "Z" to sleep was funny! And Woodstock kept flying upside down! The cartoons are cute. Done similar to the old Peanuts animated cartoon shows, but a little different. I still liked them though! Some of they were adorable, some were funny, but they are all good to watch, especially on a rainy Saturday morning.

Being a Mom and Wife is HARD!

I am the kind of mom that makes sure my kids backpacks are packed for the next day. I also pull their light weight jackets out of their backpacks and either hang them on their chairs or lay them on their backpacks to wear to school in the mornings.

Well, I went ONE day without doing this! It was awful!

First, my seven year old couldn't find her jacket, because it was in her backpack and I didn't take it out for her. Then she YELLED and screamed at me for not taking it out of her backpack for her. But yet, I took her brother's jacket out for him! Which I didn't. My son hung his on his chair, then we went out last night and he wore his because it was raining and he doesn't have a rain jacket. So when we got home I put his jacket on his chair to dry because it was a little wet.

So when I was making sure that lunches and stuff were packed, before we left the house at 5:30p.m., I had them already done. So I didn't take her jacket out of her backpack, which is when I would have done it. So yes, I forgot.

But, back to her yelling at me! She then says that I only do things for her brother and not for her and that I make her do more than I make him do. Which isn't true. They do the same things, only Matthew hangs his jacket normally on his chair or puts it on the table. Very rarely is it in his backpack because he wears it out of the school when I pick him up.

So then, my husband chimes in, while my seven year old is still putting her jacket on. He says "She's right ya know!" And of course I told him that she isn't right, and that I've been making all three of our children do the same things. I make them pack their backpacks with their homework inside. I make them put their shoes away, pick up their dirty clothes, pick up their dirty dishes and trash and put it where it belongs. I also make them clean their rooms, which my seven year old and four year old girls RARELY do. But my nine year old son keeps his room picked up and clean. And if his room isn't clean, he will clean it up when I ask him to.

If I ask my son to do his homework, he sits down and does it. He doesn't not do it. Before we left to go somewhere, my seven year old daughter was supposed to read a small thing that her teacher calls a "reader." It takes five to ten minutes to read. She was supposed to do it BEFORE we left our house. She didn't! So she had to do it before bed last night, which by then, it was almost eight o'clock.

She isn't as responsible as my husband thinks she is. Of course she has my husband wrapped around her little finger! But of course, our nine year old son and four year old daughter do nothing around the house. Everything they do isn't good enough for him. They are always causing trouble. If our girls fight, to him, it's must be the four year old's fault. But yet, I have watched them play together. If my seven year old doesn't get her way, then she hauls off and HITS her four year old sister! How is this ok? But because the four year old is crying and saying that her sister hit her, and has a bright red spot on her skin where it happened, she is at fault! Then when I ask my four year old what happened, my seven year old will come running downstairs screaming that it was an accident! Yeah, right!

Life is HARD! Being a mom to one or ten children, is HARD! Then trying to be a wife to a husband who uses any excuse or reason to take a jab at you in front of your children, is HARDER.
