Check Out This Adorable Aviation Themed Twin Bedding Set From DeKosh! #sponsored

My three children love sheets with cartoon characters, unicorns, rainbows, owls, ballerinas, bright patterns and more! I know that when my son was three to four years old, he would have loved the Aviation themed bedding set below! That's where I got my blog name! The "Airplanes" part of my blog name is from my son, because at the time, he really liked airplanes.

This Aviation Theme Kids Bedding with Airplanes, Helicopter & Clouds is a 3-Piece Sky Blue Twin Sheet Set, from DeKosh, has a playful design with Airplanes & Helicopters soaring through clouds. The Aviation Themed Bedding set is made of a polyester cotton blend. The set includes One Flat Sheet, One Fitted Sheet and One standard Pillowcase. The Sky Blue Airplane Sheets set fits standard twin size bed. It's machine washable, ultra soft and made of durable material.

Check here for more information about the Aviation Themed Bedding!

These Transportation Themed Wall Decals below, would make a great addition to any nursery or children's bedroom, classroom, and more! They are easy to apply! Just peel and stick! They are also easy to remove from most any smooth surface, according to link above. They are not suited for textured walls. I have personally used wall decals, not from DeKosh, on my son's bedroom walls, and they do stick really well and they are easy to remove, in case your hesitant about using them.

See Hear: There's magic all around you. What can you see? What can you hear? - Children's Book Review!

About the Book:
This innovative flip-format picture book is a sequel to the best-selling Smile Cry. Piglet, Bunny and Cat return in a charming, whimsical sensory adventure. From watching ‘squiggly rain’ on a window to pointing out ‘heavenly horses’ in the clouds, from hearing the ‘buzzing blossoms’ of bees at work to ‘hot pan sizzles’ as a favourite meal is prepared, See Hear invites us to open our eyes and ears to the everyday magic that surrounds us. Perfect for ages 3 and upwards.

About the Author:
Tania McCartney is an award-winning author, illustrator, and book and magazine editor. The founder of Kids’ Book Review and the 52-Week Illustration Challenge, she is a long-time juvenile literacy ambassador, and a solid player in the Australian children’s book industry. Her recent books include Australia: Illustrated and Smile Cry, a CBCA Notable Book for 2017. Tania lives in Canberra with her family, a forest of artwork and a mountain of books.

About the Illustrator:
Jess Racklyeft works with a medley of materials including watercolours, paints and digital bits and pieces. She was selected for Luerzer's Archive 200 Best Illustrators of the World 2013/2014 and the Etsy Design Awards, and has been a finalist in the Kids' Book Review Illustration Competition. Along with creating picture books, Jess works with Australian card companies, US-based agency Astound, and sells prints through markets and bookshops. She is involved in Illustrators Australia and writes for their magazine Outline. In her spare time, she creates paintings in conjunction with her young daughter.

My Review:
See Hear is like two books in one. First, the side labeled "See," talks about things that we can see, like squiggly rain, ladybugs, and more. The other side labeled "Hear," talks about things that we can hear, such as birds, popcorn, a carnival, giggling, and more.

This book is great for getting children to slow down, and look and listen for what they might see and hear if they slow down once in a while. Especially this summer. We should all slow down and teach our children that it's ok to be still once in a while. They might hear a bird's song, or a train in the distance. They might see baby birds, flowers, animals, etc. Purchase your copy today at your local book retailer or at Amazon.

I Hate You - Children's Book Review and Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 6/13/18

"I hate everyone." In your worst mood, it's a phrase you might want to shout out loud, even if, deep down, you don't really mean it. Set at a birthday party, this disgruntled, first-person story portrays the confusing feelings that sometimes make it impossible to be nice, even—or especially—when everyone else is in a partying mode. A gorgeous, poetic contemplation, sure to elicit a reaction from readers. A worthy successor to Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.

About the Author:
Naomi Danis is the managing editor of Lilith magazine, independent, Jewish, and frankly feminist. I Hate Everyone is her fourth book for young children. For this one, she asks, "Did you ever wish someone would go away and leave you alone, and then change your mind?" When she is not busy enjoying herself in spite of herself at birthday parties, and napping on airplanes and trains as a long-distance grandmother, she can often be found preparing meals for herself, her family, and friends in her Forest Hills, New York kitchen, and composting in her garden. She loves leftovers, is an absolute beginner at ballet, and is learning to worry less about surprises.

About the Illustrator:
Based in Madrid, Cinta Arribas is a frequent contributor to Flow magazine and The Debrief​, among others. In addition to her editorial work, she had created illustrations for a number of children’s books, from a coloring book to a recipe book, and her work has been featured in several anthologies. Coco ¿dónde estás? was her first full-length picture book, which she wrote and illustrated, and which was published in Spain and the United States. Her work is colorful and expressive; it has a subtle sense of humor that reminds us life should always be a little fun. Her pieces are delicate scenes in which everyday life is combined with irreverence to create a tender and, at times, disturbing universe.

My Thoughts:
I thought it was a great book about emotions and about how some children feel some times. I to, hate people, but love them at the same time. This is a great book to help children recognize that they can hate and love people at the same time. Both my girls, ages five and eight thought it was cute and a good book. My five year old kept reading it over and over again! The illustrations are great at describing the little girl's emotions and behavior.

Visiting You: A Journey of Love - Children's Book #Review!

A heart-warming celebration of the power of love, and how it's our similarities, not our differences, that matter most.

About the Book:
A young child and their mother set out to visit a loved one. Along the way, the child interacts with other commuters — a father who lives apart from his small daughter, a husband who has lost his wife, a granddaughter who is forgotten by her grandfather, and a mother who fears for her son’s recovery — and discovers that we all are bound by the common experience of love, that appearances can be deceiving, and that it’s our similarities, not our differences, that matter most.

About the Author:
Rebecka Sharpe Shelberg is a librarian, children's author and general book enthusiast. She would happily spend a year's salary in a good book store.

About the Illustrator:
Andrea Edmonds is an artist and illustrator who has worked on children's books, greeting cards, stationery, commissioned artworks and animation.

My Review:
Adorable book about an inquisitive child asking people who they are going to visit and learning about where others are going along his own journey to visit a loved one. This book is about love for people, and about how we all love others and how others can be friendly no matter what they look like, tall, overweight, tattoos, and more.

I love getting to know others and their stories. We all have stories to share, and it's so great to tell them to others.

SCAREDY BOOK - Children's Book Review and #Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 6/10

Book longs for adventure but is too scared to leave the library. Then Book meets Emma - 

Scaredy Book shares the perfect message for kids afraid of leaving their comfort zone (and hand-wringing helicopter parents too!).

About the book:
Book lives at the library and desperately wants to go outside, but is intimidated by what might happen "out there." A page might get torn. Book's cover might get dirty. Book might never be returned to the library! Meanwhile, Emma loves visiting the library an delights in the many adventures in the stories she reads. When Emma meets Book, they find they are just what each other needs. Together, Book and Emma move out of their comfort zone to try new things, meet new people, and enjoy quiet adventures - climbing trees, laughing in the rain, and even cheering along at a soccer match. Along the way, they discover that "out there" needn't be scary if you just take it one step at a time.

About the Author:
Devon Sillett is a former radio producer, turned writer and reviewer. She has loved books as long as she can remember - so much so that she even married her husband Matthew in a library! Currently, she teachers in the writing department at the University of Canberra, where she is also a PhD student, researching Australian children's picture books. Her first picture book, "The Leaky Story," was published by EK in 2017. (You can read my post about "The Leaky Story" here.)

About the Illustrator:
Cara is a designer and illustrator, who runs who own design business, Caratoons. She is based in Melbourne, Australia.

My Review:
"Scaredy Book" is a cute story about a brave and courageous book who likes the safe walls and shelves in the library, but who also wishes to go on adventures and have experiences. He learns that he can not only make new friends and leave the library on great adventures, but that afterwards, he will return to the safe library when his new friends are done reading him and taking him places.

This story is a great story to help teach children that when they leave the house to go somewhere, that they are always on an adventure, and when the adventure is over, they will return back home, safe and sound. The illustrations are beautifully done!
