Giveaway: Can't-Wait Willow!

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received one or more of the products or services mentioned above for free in hope that I would mention it on my blog. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."

I love fun kids' books, so when this new series, Shine Bright Kids, was brought up to me, I was anxious to review it.  They say, "The Shine Bright Kids series provides children and their families with a relevant framework to help instill solid values and teach the importance of making good choices. The principles that will be explored include: using good judgment, taking responsibility, having a positive attitude, and demonstrating perseverance." 

Of course, I wanted that.

So, when Can't-Wait Willow! arrived, Trina totally fell in love with Willow on the cover (she is adorable, isn't she?) and vanished with the book.  She told me about it later that day.

"Willow is so much like me, she has something she wants to save up for -- like I want to buy shrimp -- but all the little things keep pulling at her along the way.  You know, like gum in the checkout line.  I love gum, but then it is all gone, and I'm further away from my goals."

Of course, that is ALL I can tell you, as Trina cannot find the book again, and I only saw a brief glimpse of the cover before she raced off to read it with one of her big brothers.  However, that much is enough for me to know I would like it.

And Trina keeps pulling her hair back with a ribbon to look more like Willow on the cover. 

Here is what the publisher says about the book:
Willow is so excited that the Over-the-Top Circus has finally come to town! The only problem is, that when left to her own devices, she can’t say “no” to some good things. On the way to the show, she is distracted by enticing treats and fun that she just can’t turn down. Willow arrives late and is sad to find that, not only has she has run out of time, but money, and she won’t be able to enjoy the pink cotton candy she’s been dreaming of. Willow is given valuable advice and a second chance and is ultimately taught the lesson that sometimes in life you have to say “no” to good things to end up with something great!
I know that isn't much of a review, but it is the best I can do until the book turns up, under the mattress or in her pajama drawer or somewhere I just haven't looked.

Hopefully, that is enough to pique your interest though, as I have one to give away.

Oh my goodness soooo many things. My two little girls are mini hoarders and they love to stash stuff in boxes and purses. In drawers. My four year old newest thing is to take things and wrap them up in paper and pretend its a present. She was so nice to give me my car keys my phone. Some stamp. A hair brush and makeup. LOL!! Never full around here. This boon looks so cute and would love to read it with my kiddos.

The one that took the longest to find was a library book that was lying on top of the printer. It was pretty much in plain sight, but we looked everywhere before we thought of it being there.

One of Elizabeth's books that she had checked out from the library that I thought was lost was found in my bedroom closet under the section of my dh's shirts. I had already paid the library for the book, but thankfully I was able to get my money back.

I found my phone stuck in my clothing drawer the other day.
