Perfect Picture Book Friday: THE ANIMAL ADVENTURER’S GUIDE Plus Giveaway

Happy Perfect Picture Book Friday, dear friends! Today’s featured book isn’t actually a picture book…well, it has lots of pictures in it…and it’s definitely a book that kids will love reading…and using! I met the author at a local SCBWI meeting – and we connected immediately (she happens to come from Brooklyn, just like me) and I loved what she was all about. “I want to write about nature so I can reach people not just with my teaching, but with my words” – And now she has a book that will help her do that! The title is: THE ANIMAL ADVENTURER’S GUIDE…but the subtitle gives you a clearer picture of what a fun book this will be for kids – and their parents: HOW TO PROWL FOR AN OWL, MAKE SNAIL SLIME, AND CATCH A FROG BARE-HANDED – 50 ACTIVITIES TO GET WILD WITH ANIMALS.

Perfect Picture Book Friday: THE GREAT CAPER CAPER Plus Author Chat Giveaway

Happy Perfect Picture Book Friday, dear friends. Kids love a series, don’t they? There are plenty of chapter book and middle grade series…but picture book series are hard to find. Why, you may ask? Because it’s hard to develop characters that will resonate so much with kids that they want to read about their other adventures. The talented Josh Funk is definitely a master of this…and today’s featured book is the FIFTH in the Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast series…well done, Josh!!!! This post is part of Josh’s book blog tour so I’m sure everyone will be hearing a lot more about it – the book launches November 15th. But it’s available for PRE-ORDER right now! And please make sure you leave a comment for a chance to win a Zoom author chat with Josh…if you’ve never checked out his website, you should! It’s filled with amazing resources and posts for writers…and parents and librarians and teachers. Please SHARE the post on social media if you can and tag friends for extra tickets in the giveaway hat.
