My desk is currently piled with lovely, charming and colorful children’s picture books that I can’t wait to review.  So what do you do when you have accumulated too many beautiful children’s books? Reviewing and sharing the beauty of these great books makes me happy, but what really makes my heart sing is giving them away!

Enter to win my June Kidlit Book Bundle Giveaway and possibly win 5 brand new kids books! Here’s what the prize bundle contains this month:

Read, Read, and Read by Elizabeth and Liv Gorcey

Read, Read, and Read tells the story of Liv’s love of books, and proves that a book can be a friend and make a friend. This book is not only a fun read for the kids, it also opens up a dialogue between young children and their parents on reading and friendship. The award-winning Liv On Life series features Olivia and her best friend, Bowie ( like David Bowie), a Boxer dog. Read my full book review and interview with Elizabeth and Liv HERE.

The Secret of the Stairs

A Robbie Raines Mystery

Robbie Raines is an inquisitive eleven-year-old African-American girl with a deep love of history and the strange ability to see visions populated by famous figures.

When she’s forced to spend her summer days with her mysterious Aunt Enna in a dilapidated, horror-movie-scary old house, she discovers a dark family secret. A local handyman was found dead in the basement years ago, and his death was never solved. Was it an accident? Or did her aunt commit a cold-blooded murder?

Armed with her intense curiosity, a vast knowledge of historical trivia, and her helpful visions, Robbie sets out to solve the decade-old case. With the aid of a retired detective named Granger, and her best pal, Stacie, Robbie discovers clues long missed by the police and pieces together what really happened in her aunt’s shadowy stairway. Read my full review HERE.

Mason Jar Science

Mason Jar Science! Help kids capture the magic of science in a jar (and moms love the fact there’s less mess).  In this tabletop lab, kids learn the core principles of science by distilling experiments into a mason jar. Anything that encourages kids to step away from technology while awakening a love for scientific discovery is priceless.
