'If You Give A...' Children’s Picture Book Reviews

Somewhat accidentally, I managed to publish three children's picture book reviews in the last week or so.  Two of them are from the very popular "If You Give A..." series by Laura Numeroff.

The first one, If You Give A Cat A Cupcake, features cupcakes and boy, do I love cupcakes! The ones on the cover drew me in & the cat in this book took me on a wild and crazy adventure after he made one heck of a mess with the sprinkles!

The second book, If You Give A Pig A Pancake, features pancakes and a pig!  Just imagine what might happen if you gave a pig a pancake and some syrup and you are launched on the way for another great adventure!

(Sorry the pancake review is being moved.)

All three characters (Mouse, Moose and Pig) from the bestselling If You Give . . . series are in this wonderful family treasury, Mouse Cookies & More: A Treasury. Inside, you will find the books, recipes, songs, and activities. It is full of fun things to do.

I love children's picture books! How about you?

Wear The Mountain Wolf T-Shirt, Attract A Mate

With regard to the Mountain Wolf T-Shirt, the internet headlines read:
  • 'The hottest wolf shirt. Ever.'
  • 'Wolf t-shirt sells like crazy after 'babe magnet' review.'
  • 'Google Wolf + T-Shirt and Magic Happens.'
  • 'The Howling Wolf Tee Guy.'
  • 'The Three Wolf Miracle Shirt.'
  • 'Wolf T-Shirt The Hottest Clothing Item on Amazon.'

The Mountain's The Three Wolf Moon T-Shirt is an unexpected internet sensation...since student B. Govern "Bee-Dot-Govern" wrote a fun review about how the t-shirt helped him attract women at Wal-Mart. I'm sure that The Mountain did not intend their t-shirts as a way to attract the opposite sex...and despite, Govern's initial review, the subject is controversial.  One purchaser was disappointed when not a single supermodel approached him  after he wore the shirt for a week.  (I do hope he washed it!)

The company reportedly said, "We appreciate humour as much as the next company, but we don’t approve of some of the remarks."  However, the firm must really be pleased. (Who wouldn't be thrilled to be selling more shirts in today's economic climate?)  "We’ll take ironic fashion any day…. and we’re printing another 400,000 t-shirts…"

In case you haven't heard of them, you need to know that The Mountain creates marvelous, hand-dyed & environmentally-friendly t-shirts. We can all be thankful that Govern chose a shirt that was made by such a fantastic company.  Read more about The Mountain by clicking right here.

Until next time,
