Hugs & Kisses, God from Kids Around the World *Review*

Hug's & Kisses God Around the World

Following the success of her previous multicultural children's book Thank You, God, Nolan again captures the spirit of god's grace on every color splashed page.  With her signature rhythmic text, Nolan has an international lesson: recognize life's every day delights as gifts from God.  Her examples include everything from yummy pancakes and daisies on a hill to pink skies and fireflies.

The vibrant illustrations of artist Miki Sakamoto enhance the spirit of Nolan's story, and a special surprise awaits young readers behind lift-able flaps on every eye catching page as children eagerly count their blessings.

My Review
It is always fun to learn a something from other cultures and this book helps with that.  :)  Not only does it share a bit a bit about culture but it reminds of us several ways we can show God's love or give God Glory.  I do not have many books that have flips and my daughter has a fun time on each page flipping the flap to read it.  :)

This story is a great book to add to your collection.  It is always nice to have a book that is encouraging the principles, morals, and values that we learn from the word of God, so any book to help remind our children is awesome.  

This would make a wonderful gift for any expecting parent, child, Sunday school teacher, or home school family.  :)

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most
