Book Review: Snuggles


Snuggle's Japanese Alps Adventure
By Tim Ostermeyer

When I first received this book in the mail, I was very impressed as I was opening it.  I did not expect a nice hardcover book.  This book has beautiful photographs on each page taken by the author, Tim Ostermeyer.   The story is about a snow monkey, Snuggles, who is learning that he needs to plan ahead for the winter.  He is also learning how to survive in the wild and how his mom and dad are able to help him.  Snuggles does plan ahead, but there are so many fun distractions in the jungle.  Does he make it to the springs in time for winter?  I won't spoil it for you in case you want to check it out for yourself.     The author includes Bible verses throughout the book.  He also includes points on how to pray.  There are many facts about snow monkeys and the Japanese Alps.  My children, ages 6-10, really enjoyed this book. They loved all of the pictures and loved learning about Snuggles.  My 10 year old like discussing the evolution theories at the end and how they are incorrect.

 I received this book free from the publisher through the BookCrash.com book review program, which requires an honest, though not necessarily positive, review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Heaven Is For Real For Kids Book Review

Heaven is for Real for Kids : A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back, Todd Burpo-Sonja Burpo

Heaven is for Real for Kids was written by Todd and Sonja Burpo as told to them by their son, Colton.

Book Description:
Heaven is for real, and you are going to like it!
Colton Burpo came back from his trip to heaven with a very important message: Jesus really, really loves children. In an effort to reach even more families with this eternally significant story, this runaway bestseller is now told from Colton—kid to kids! Children will receive the same comfort and assurance that so many adults have received from the trade book.
Beautifully illustrated under Colton's direction, he shares his experiences in first person and comments on things that will be important to kids. A letter to parents is included to guide them as they talk to their children about heaven. Scripture along with a Q&A section with answers from the Bible are also included in the book.

My thoughts:
This book is fantastic!!  I love that the illustrations are so colorful.  It is a beautiful story that is written in a way that young children will understand.  There are Bible verses included throughout the story that go along with Colton's description of Heaven.  There is also a Q & A section in the back of the book.  This is a great book that may answer some of the questions that young children have about Heaven.  

I received this book from Thomas Nelson through NetGalley for my honest opinion.

USA Kids Sippy Cup



Recently, USA Kids had a free cup giveaway on their Facebook page.  I received the sippy cup in the mail and let my 16 month old use it after I had washed it.  It is a very durable insulated cup with a removable plug in the top piece for washing.  All of their cups are BPA free and made in the USA.  My daughter loves her pink cup with the birds on it.  My daughter has already dropped this cup and it survived :)  She has also shook it to try to get the water out and it does not leak.  I will definitely be buying more of these cups for her.  We both love them!

USA Kids did not ask me to write a review, but their cups are so great that I wanted to share with others.
