Best of 2015 Giveaway Hop

I'm really excited to participate in the Best of 2015 Giveaway Hop! I've read a ton of great books this year and have some many to suggest, but for fun I thought it might be nice to show some children's authors some love. For this hop, I'm showcasing 3 of my favorite kids reads of this year:

1) The Rabbit Who Wants to Fall Asleep

Story Description:

The groundbreaking #1 bestseller is sure to turn nightly bedtime battles into a loving and special end-of-day ritual. This child-tested, parent-approved story uses an innovative technique that brings a calm end to any child’s day.
Do you struggle with getting your child to fall asleep?
Join parents all over the world who have embraced The Rabbit Who Wants to Fall Asleep as their new nightly routine.
When Roger can’t fall asleep, Mommy Rabbit takes him to see Uncle Yawn, who knows just what to do. Children will join Roger on his journey and be lulled to sleep alongside their new friend.
Carl-Johan Forssén Ehrlin’s simple story uses a unique and distinct language pattern that will help your child relax and fall asleep—at bedtime or naptime.
Reclaim bedtime today!

My mini review: This book uses progressive muscle relaxation, word therapy, and mildly hypnotic reading tones to help your children fall asleep faster. I really loved this book. It's one of my "hey, I had that idea books." If your child(ren) have trouble falling asleep, I strongly suggest giving it a look. My son is very energetic and it is effective on him (when the rest of the house is quiet). 

2) My Life as a Sixth Grade Super Zero

(The ebook is only 99 cents. One-click it! AMAZON)

Book description:

You’d think being a superhero would be cool. And you’re right. It would be cool, especially since the entire world is filled with plain old regular people. Superheroes and supervillains are kind of hard to find, but not as hard as some people like to think. So, anything would be better than being just a normal, everyday 6th grader, right? Wrong. The only thing worse than being an average kid would be what I am, and that is a hero with a totally useless, mega wonky, super power. I’m a dud—a zero. That’s me, Theo Perkins, a 6th grade super-freaking-zero.

My mini review: My son loves this book. He is a very bright child and he really got into the characters and asked us to read it every night until it was finished. He was later playing pretend, acting as the characters in the book. Family friendly and reluctant reader read!

3) Pinkalicious!

Book Description:

While waiting for the first snow to fall, Pinkalicious discovers her own winter wonderland with the help of a new friend in town!
#1 New York Times bestselling author Victoria Kann is back with a sweet winter story that's perfect for parents and kids to read together all year round! This storybook also includes winter-themed stickers.

My mini review: All the Pinkalicious books are a win in my house and this was no exception! If you have a little girl who likes girly things (as I do), then this is a great holiday book for you!
