Little One Books: Review & Giveaway!!

My little Monkey LOVES books!!!
and just like his mom, he loves to snuggle up with a good book!
(only he prefers a bottle rather than my hot cup of tea!) :)


He is such a bookworm! We are always on the hunt for new, high quality books that will keep his attention! So needless to say I was thrilled when I stumbled upon Little One Books! The website is so user-friendly - I love how you are able to shop by product or by age category! But what really drew me to Little One Books is how they personally review each book, music or video! They even have a blog that they regularly update with reviews, interviews and much more!

"Little One Books was created to help others make informed choices from among the vast amount of material available for children today. We specialize in quality books, music, and video, for children birth through age five, and have personally reviewed and selected each and every item in our store. You'll find detailed information on why we prefer a particular product in our "Why We Chose" section of each product page".  (littleonebooks.com)

When Little One Books offered to let me pick any book to review,
I was overjoyed at the opportunity!! :)
and since few things in life are sweeter than my little monkey's feet -
I chose "Ten Little Fingers, Ten Little Toes" by Mem Fox.



This book is just wonderful -
the illustrations are beautiful and the water color pictures are calming & realistic!
I love how the book depicts children of all races from all over the world!

The words are so rhythmic and smooth
that you will find yourself wanting to read it again and again!


Monkey especially loved it when I tickled his toes while reading -
"and both of these babies, as everyone knows, 
had ten little fingers, and ten little toes."


But what I love the most about this book is the overall message the book sends -
that despite our many differences, we are also all the same --
with Ten Fingers & Ten Toes! :)

This book is a must have!!

Thank you Little One Books for this wonderful opportunity to review this book!

  6. I am already a follower of your blog! :) With a 3 and a 5 year old it's hard to find books they both are interested in. I would get "chicka chicka boom boom". My five year old loves to read it to his younger sister! I would also get the "boom chicka rock" book as it's by the same author and is about numbers. Oh...or I would get "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day". Very fitting for my son! So many great books to chose from!

  7. This is a wonderful bookstore -- I am so impressed by the selection.
    If I am the lucky winner, I would love to get The Frogs and Toads All Sang by Arnold Lobel. I still have my old beat-up copy of Frog and Toad Are Friends from when I was a kid, and we read it all the time in our family! But I don't have this recent sequel yet! I am also fascinated by the story of how the book came about. (Lobel's daughter found the poems and stories contained in various letters that Lobel had written to friends and family and realized they had the makings of a final book in the Frog & Toad series!)
    I'd also love to get Gossie by Olivier Dunrea. Everyone seems to be raving about this book, and we need some board books for our new addition to our family.
    Thanks so much for hosting this super giveaway!
