 photo disclaimer_zpsd3x74ej2.jpg


About the Book
Put the world is in your child's hands with this book that lets them color in and build their own amazing three-dimensional playset.

Your child will spend hours coloring, creating, and playing with Ballerina Theater. Kids can build scenes from favorite ballets, including Romeo and Juliet, Swan Lake, and The Nutcracker. They can create a scene from each ballet or create their own! All it takes is some colored pens or pencils and a healthy imagination! Children can color in and stack these die-cut card sheets and then mix and match them to create different colorscapes. Die-cut holes in the middle of the cards help create a stunning layered effect when the cards are stacked one behind another in the base. Twenty-four double-sided, press-out card sheets allow kids to put together many different card combinations to create their very own scenes.




My Take on the Book
This is a very fun set with some amazing opportunities to not only color and create some beautiful images but also allows you to create some very cool scenes that you can use to create your own ballet. I loved seeing the girls interacting with this and with all of the cards you really have a great opportunity to use your imagination to create stories you will never forget.

My Take on the Book
My youngest daughter loves spot the difference books and this one was a book that really challenged her, but in the end she said she had a blast. What was interesting was that you are given a time limit to complete the puzzles which makes it even more difficult. The images you create in the end are beautiful and you can make them as colorful as you would like! Be challenged and creative at the same time!

Book Review - Cara's Kindness

Cara's Kindness
 photo disclaimer_zpsd3x74ej2.jpg


About the Book
From the New York Times bestelling author Kristi Yamaguchi!

When you pass on some kindness, it might make its way back to you...

Cara the Cat is struggling with picking the perfect song for her new ice-skating routine. But when a friend in need turns up at the rink, Cara drops everything to lend a helping hand. All she asks is that he pay it forward! Before long, Cara's kindness is passed all around...and might even make its way back home!

Kristi Yamaguchi is an ice-skating Olympic gold medalist and world champion who knows how to lend a helping hand! As founder of the Always Dream Foundation, Kristi helps promote early childhood literacy. Through her newest picture book, Kristi inspires children of all ages to pay it forward!



My Take on the Book
As someone that watched Krist Yamaguchi skate when I was young I loved the grace she brought to the ice. She has truly captured this grace within this very fun book. What I loved about the book is that it is not just about skating, but instead it has a more important message which is the importance of being kind. We try to teach this concept to our kids on a daily basis so having other ways, through reading, that we can incorporate into our teachings is always a plus.

On top of the important message you also get amazing images that just pop off the page. My girls, while older than the reading demographic still loved to hear the story and we had a great conversation about kindness after reading the book as well!
