Book Review: " A Very Fiona Christmas"


About the Book:
A follow-up to the New York Times bestselling Fiona the Hippo picture book comes A Very Fiona Christmas!
It’s Fiona the hippo’s very first Christmas, and the zoo is sparkling with holiday spirit. When the adorable little hippo asks her friends, “What’s Christmas?” they set out to show her all the wonders and excitement of the season. With each new experience Fiona lets out a snort, wiggles her ears, and asks, “Is THIS Christmas?”
Amidst the snow, twinkling lights, mistletoe, and stockings, Fiona ends up meeting a new friend at the zoo who helps her discover the true meaning of the holiday: Love. Snuggle up with your little ones and join Fiona and her adorable animal friends for a heartwarming holiday romp through the zoo. 
A Very Fiona Christmas:
  • Stars the one and only Fiona the hippo, the worldwide internet sensation and star of the Cincinnati Zoo, who through her spunk and fighting spirit overcame all odds when she was born six weeks premature
  • Features adorable art by Richard Cowdrey, illustrator of the New York Times bestseller Fiona the Hippo
  • Is Fiona’s first Christmas adventure and the perfect holiday book for children and Fiona fans of any age
  • Will delight readers with a shimmering foil and glitter cover



My Review:
Thanks Zondervan for sending me this book for free in exchange for an honest review.  I was not paid for this and all opinions expressed are 100% my own.  

I think Fiona the hippo is a very adorable character that reminds me of why I love making things special for my own children.  Fiona finds that Christmas is about loving others.  It is a fun story that walks you through Fiona's first for Christmas from the star on top of the tree to playing in the snow!  Fiona gets a stocking but realizes that a new koala at the zoo didn't get a present and learns to share! 

I am surprised again with this Zondervan story as I don't see anything pointing to Christ for Christmas in this one.  I like the story I just wish the animals were super excited for Christmas because they get to celebrate JESUS!

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
