I just wanted to let you all know that in the coming weeks I will bring you a new feature here at AM2CW. We will be reviewing books that could possibly make it to your Summer Reading list for your kids. The "Mama-Read-To-Me-Monday" feature posts will give you the run down of the book we reviewed, as well as what we (Mama and the Munchkins) thought of the book. We will be using our rating scale of 1-6 thumbs, based on 3 of us and 2 thumbs each. Also we will be including an activity that will be associated with that book or series of books in the weeks in between the next book review. The activities may involve printables, crafts or physical activities that will be inspired by the book or series we read.
On that note: the "Mama-Read-To-Me-Mondays" and AM2CW has a new sponsor, Kids Can Press Canada, has become our sponsor, providing us with books to review. So look for their button or banner arriving soon to the left sidebar.
So please check them out...they are located in both Canada and the U.S. And be kind and check them out on Facebook. You are also able to sign up for their newsletter on their website. You will know Kids Can Press from the Franklin the Turtle series by Paulette Bourgeois, illustrated by Brenda Clark as well as Scaredy Squirrel series by Melanie Watt.
***Here's a little highlight on the Franklin books, it is celebrating 25 years in 2011 as well as the writer, Paulette Bourgeois and illustrator, Brenda Clark, are up for nomination on the Canada Walk of Fame. Did you know there are now over 30 book in the Franklin series?
So stay tuned to AM2CW over the next couple weeks, as we get our biggest jump into blogging, with the "Mama-Read-To-Me-Monday" taking off.
Ciao for now,
