Perfect Picture Book Friday: HIP, HIP, BERET Plus Giveaway

Happy Perfect Picture Book Friday, dear friends.

Do you like rhyme? Do you like repetition? I sure do…and so do young children. And that’s why I’m featuring this new book, HIP HIP BERET from author Melanie Ellsworth who stopped by 2 weeks ago for a Book Birthday post when her other picture book launched, CLARINET AND TRUMPET. What’s really special (other than that they are both great books) is that both books are touchy-feely books…this one has soft berets – young kids will LOVE that. And I know all of you will love the fact that Melanie and her publisher are offering a copy of HIP, HIP, BERET as a giveaway prize!

Perfect Picture Book Friday: The Big Beach Cleanup Plus Giveaway

Happy Perfect Picture Book Friday, dear friends. The temperatures in New England are pretty chilly and the ground is covered with snow. What better time to celebrate a brand-new book about sun and sand and ocean waves tickling our toes! I grew up in New York City and spent many summer days on the beach at Coney Island. But beaches all over the world fall victim to thoughtless visitors who head home leaving cans, bottles, plastic bags, and many other types of garbage. Sadly, not only does it look disgusting, but that litter poses life-threatening health hazards for the creatures who inhabit the ocean, as well as those who live in the sand. Today’s wonderful book by debut picture book author Charlotte Offsay turns the spotlight on that problem and offers a solution! PLUS, she and her publisher are offering a copy of THE BIG BEACH CLEANUP as a giveaway. Make sure you leave a comment below.
