Book Review: "Nora's Ark"

Prolific author and poet Eileen Spinelli has written more than 40 celebrated books for kids.   Now she’s using her talent to reimagine a favorite Bible story in the new children’s book, NORA’S ARK (Zonderkidz; $14.99; February 2013)
With beautiful purple-hued artwork designed by award-winning illustrator Nora Hilb, NORA’S ARK introduces an ambitious young girl who attempts to recreate the biblical story of Noah’s Ark in her own backyard.

My Review: 
I absolutely love the story line in this brand new children's book!  I know one time my kids and I reenacted the "Jonah" Bible story which reminded me of this story.  

As a parent it is exciting to hear or see your child retell or react a story they have heard, and even more proud when it is a Bible Story.  Nora is an adorable girl who is pretending to be Noah and even though she does  not do it exact her imagination runs wild with the story and her innocence shines through.  

My kids both enjoyed the story and the pictures inside.  My daughter is very familiar with Noah's Ark and she loved seeing Nora trying to be Noah.  I think I might find her doing a similar thing this spring when we have the spring rains.  

This is a must read for any Parent, Grandparent, or Sunday School Teacher.

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

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
