GIVEAWAY: Sock 'n Boots Adventures Children's Book! -CLOSED-


I was able to review the children's book: Sock 'n Boots Adventures by D. K. Smith.  The book has 3 stories in it.  All sweet with a nice message.  ALL of which my kids need to work on. :)  So I appreciate these stories for the help they give me.

Each story begins with a question and then a lesson is taught through the fun story.   When the story is finished the question is posed again which I like because it made sure that I was having a discussion about it with my kids.
Sometimes I forget how important and interesting that step is.  My kids always crack me up with their interpretations.

My 4 year old daughters favorite story is "Afraid of the Dark" because..."I love watching the monster chase them...that's silly."

Another thing I really love about Sock 'n Boots is that at the end there is a coloring book!  The coloring pages are pages from the story.  It's an all in one book!

Also available is a Sock 'n Boots iPad app for $.99 on …

Review: Thomas and Friends Holiday Favorites DVD!

Review by Aimee
Do trains remind you of Christmas? Well enjoy the whole train/Christmas package with Thomas and Friends Holiday Favorites. I guess trains remind me of Christmas because they seem to be a big item at Christmas, not that I have ever purchased one, but perhaps this year for my boy. :)

Thomas Holiday Favorites includes 3 DVDs: "Merry Winter Wish," "Ultimate Christmas," and "Holiday Express." "Merry Winter Wish"  was cute as Thomas carries in a special package for Christmas; a beautiful Christmas star.  In "Ultimate Christmas" the trains meet holiday and winter friends along the way such as Jack Frost.  The engines also are so cute how they share the Christmas spirit so well with each other, while teaching your little ones to do the same.  In"Holiday Express" The engines have a snowy Thanksgiving, a giant snowman and more.  Each show is sure to brighten your holidays with your little ones.  Both of  my kids LOVE the…

GIVEAWAY: Barney: A Very Merry Christmas The Movie DVD! -CLOSED-

Review by Suzanne Winner

A great way to start off the holiday season, Barney: A Very Merry Christmas-The Movie!  My kids (ages 2 and 4) LOVED feeling the excitement of the Christmas season as Barney went through the first snow fall, setting up the decorations, and then a ride to Santa's workshop. I loved that it really focused on the joy of giving not just receiving the gifts, something they don't always understand :)

Barney A Very Merry Christmas-the movie arrived on DVD on October 11, 2011. It is 58 minutes, which is perfect for little ones to watch and enjoy. Travel with Barney and Baby Bop to the North Pole and celebrate the Christmas season. You will want to get this movie and help your little ones be ready for the Holidays. You can see more info at Lionsgate and Hit Entertainment.

One reader will win Barney: A Very Merry Christmas The Movie DVD!
