To The Sea Book Review and Giveaway


As children imagine the sights, sounds, feelings, and tastes evoked in To The Sea, they can take part in one boy’s adventurous day there, with its surprises and rewards. In Graham Blanchard’s Learn, Absorb & Praise™ Collection, To The Sea is a Praise book, which wonders at the amazing miracles found in everyday life and praises the God who made them.

Meet the Author

Callie Grant founded Graham Blanchard Inc. to create children’s books for growing up in God by working with an extensive network of artists, parents, pastors, teachers, and children. The company, which release its first titles in 2013, is the culmination of her experience in the publishing industry paired with a strong calling to help families know God’s love and nurture their faith through reading together.
A life-long lover of the sea, Jeremy Tugeau decided to become an artist
while playing on the beach as a child. Tugeau also illustrated Graham Blanchard’s All of Me That You Can’t See released in 2013. His faithful accomplices and primary inspirations are his wife Nicole and their three young children.

My Review:
This book took me back to my own memories on the beach.  It is a toddler board book that is very fun to read and use motions for the actions it describes in the text.   
I could easily relate to the book with my memories from the beach especially the line, "A salty spray surprises my mouth."   I remember the first time at the beach how over powering the salt water truly was.  Each page takes you to a different sensory or memory from the beach from birds, to waves, to building sand castles.   This book is great to discuss all there is to do at a beach before going to one or discussing all the fun that was had at the beach.   

The illustrations were created with water colors and it created a warm feeling just like the beach.  The ending of the story reflects at being thankful for God creating beautiful fun beaches and there is scripture on the last page, Genesis 1:31 "And God saw everything that he had made, and behold it was very good."  
The age recommendation is 0-5 and my 4 year old seemed to enjoy it but my 7 year old really enjoyed talking about what she likes about the beach and comparing and contrasting her likes to some of the highlights of the book.  
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% my own.

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,
