GIVEAWAY: FIVE Little Green Books! -CLOSED-


Winner

Little Green Books from Simon & Schuster has an eco-friendly series that I got to check out.  The books teach about the benefits of recycling, how they can help endangered animals, and dangers of global warming, to name a few.  Not only are the theme's environmentally friendly, but so are the actual books!  They are printed on recycled materials with vegetable or soy inks.   I think that is so great!
And I also like how they are teaching kids to grow up to be earth friendly adults.

Little Green Books has a great book list, here is what I chose to review:


This is Our World: A Story About Taking Care of the Earth also has a double sided puzzle!  Now that my daughter is into puzzles she really gets excited about this book.  Plus the story is cute and has a positive message. 


Don't Throw That Away! is a Lift-the-Flap Book and that's always a crowd pleaser at my house.  Great book about recycling.  Something I want to teach my children while they are young.  I love how the girl in the story is a super-hero!


Easy to Be Green is a great activity book! Lot of activities and coloring while learning.  There is even one on how you can make your own reusable lunch bag.
Such a great took to get your child thinking about reusing instead of just consuming.


My First Garden is a book that you can also carry around with you by the handle.
When we start gardening this year I'm sure my daughter will want to bring this along.  Maybe as a reference so she can check to see if I know what I'm doing.

Little Monkey is SO SOFT!  It's made from recycled fleece, cotton, and it's machine washable!  My one year old loves touching it.  I also love books for little ones that won't make noise when they decide to chuck it across the room.  To me, that's a nice feature. :)

My kids and I really enjoy these books, and I love having them around to help teach them about being nice to their planet.   They would compliment any book collection for any kid.  Little Green Books also has a page for Parents and Teachers with FREE downloadable activities!  There's a maze, craft project, etc.
You can also check out their blog for great posts like The Busy Parent Pesticide Guide.

Freezer Homemade Fries & Sauce

I LOVE fries!  I would make them more but it seems like a hassle when I'm trying to get dinner ready, kids are screaming, and I'm trying to dodge cheerios on the floor.

Then along came freezer fries and my life is far richer (lol)....not the ones you buy at the store that kinda look potato-like, but the real things.  They are also MUCH cheaper.   So instead of letting your potatoes sit around, and hoping that you remember to use them, you can make fries....yum....

To see my post on what to do with a 10lb. bag of potatoes go to The Coupon Project.

First wash and scrub potatoes ( I don't peel because I think it's miserable work)
Cut into 1/2 inch fries
Toss with oil (I usually use Canola)
Add salt and a little sugar (makes them crispy)



Place them on a baking sheets and bake at 475 for 20 minutes (they will only be half cooked)
After baking, let them cool on paper or dish towels Put in freezer on sheet (I have a small freezer so I used pie tins) Let them freeze solid (ab…

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
