Adorable gifts that give back from Kohl’s Cares

 

bookcase

If you have read my blog on a regular basis you know how much I really LOVE the products from the Kohl’s Cares program. Just in case you are not familiar with Kohl’s Cares, I’ll give you a brief introduction.

Throughout the year Kohl’s, as part of their Kohl’s Cares program, offers specific products for only $5.00 each. They usually include adorable plush toys, books, games and more. One hundred percent of the net profits goes to support children’s health initiatives nationwide.

I have been a fan of the Kohl’s Cares products for a long time. My favorites are the book and matching plush combinations. Kohl’s Cares usually always has special books with a matching plush toy. They are $5.00 each ($10 for the set). They make wonderful gifts for children for birthday’s, holidays, baby showers, new baby and “just because.”

I have several book plush sets that I display on my bookcase and rotate throughout the year (usually when there are new products from Kohl’s Cares). One I keep on display all the time – Put Me in the Zoo book and matching plush. It was one of my favorite books growing up.

Here is just a few pieces from my Kohl’s Cares collection.

Some of the pieces I keep for myself to share with my future grandchildren. Others I donate to where I work (I work with children).

The items offered through Kohl’s Cares changes every few months. The products are available both online and in stores. In our local Kohl’s store the Kohl’s Cares products are on display near the check out lines.

The products are available while supplies last, so if you see something you want I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase it.

Check out what is new right now from Kohl’s Cares.

Kohls Cares

I have the Penguin and the Bear, as well as a couple of the books. The books I donated to where I work. The plush I kept to give to our neighbors who are expecting.

The books are hardcover with dust jackets. If you have ever purchased a hard cover children’s book you know they can be expensive. These books are only $5 each.

I love the plush toys. They are SO SOFT! They are made exceptionally well. I can see them being someone’s best friend for years to come. They are the perfect size to tote around too.

I adore the matching books. Together the plush and the book make a wonderful gift. Where else can you find something so cute for $10 (book & plush)?

If you have a lot of young family members, grandchildren or your own children you should consider stocking up on these. These would even be great for a last minute children’s party invitation. It’s always great to have extra gifts on hand just in case. Anyone would be thrilled to receive these delightful gifts from Kohl’s Cares.

Don’t forget, 100% of the net profit from the sales of these items goes to the Kohl’s Cares charitable contributions.

To date, Kohl’s has raised nearly $300 million through the Kohl’s Cares merchandise program. To reinforce the company’s commitment to children’s health, Kohl’s has donated financial support to hospitals across the country. The donations fund hospital outreach programs focused on children’s health initiatives and address the specific issues needed most in each hospital’s community. These tailored programs provide vital resources to families at no cost and include topics such as injury prevention, asthma awareness, dental care, and fitness. A complete list of hospital partners is available online.

Hit the road this summer with Fodor’s Travel and Listening Library! (Giveaway ends 5/15/16)

 

NationalParksoftheWest

I cannot begin to grasp the idea that summer is almost here. SUMMER! When did that happen? It seems like we were shoveling snow just yesterday. Now we’re planning on what to do Memorial Day weekend, the unofficial start to summer.

What are your summer plans? Are you planning on a vacation with your family or friends?

My family and I can’t afford to go on a real vacation. Instead we rely on “day trips.” They don’t usually cost that much and we are able to be home in time to walk our dog and feed our “mini-zoo.”

One of our favorite places to go during the warm weather months are area parks (local or state). We love being outdoors and exploring nature.

When I was younger my family and I took a road trip through Yosemite National Park. That was one of my most favorite vacations. I still remember when we came across an area that had a lot of snow. You don’t always associate California with snow. I know my parents took a picture of me and my sister playing in the snow. I wish I knew where that photo was.

If you are planning a vacation this year across your state, or across the country, be sure to check out Fodor’s Travel.

Did you know that Fodor’s has been around for 80 years? Wow!

Fodor’s is a trusted resource offering expert travel advice.

Throughout this year (2016), all parks, including the venerable Yellowstone and Yosemite, will celebrate the centennial with activities and initiatives that allow visitors to revel in their natural, historical, and cultural splendor.

Yellostone Falls

I would love to return to Yosemite with my family (husband and children). They have never been there before. Visiting Yellowstone is on my “Bucket List.”

If your summer vacation plans include a road trip you should check out Fodor’s National Park Road Trip Itineraries, found on Fodors.com. It will help you and your family have the most road-trip worthy adventures to parks across various states.

You should also check out National Parks 101 if you are planning a trip to a national parks, including booking, budgeting and packing tips; and National Parks Finder helps you find and compare national parks based on activity, region or season.

Be sure to check out Fodor’s National Parks of the West, on sale May 10. The book ha been completely updated and provides readers with the best sites, dining, and lodging in and around each park.

Family Travel

When you are planning a road trip, even if it’s just to the grandparent’s house, you should always have entertainment on hand.

One great way to keep everyone entertained while traveling is with audiobooks. When you listen to a book being read to you via an audiobook, you can completely lose yourself in the journey, enjoying the scenery while listening to a great narrator tell you a story.

Audiobook are idea for children because they help to expand vocabulary, teach pronunciation and improve reading comprehension.

Here are some examples of audiobooks.

 
 
Imagine enjoying these types of stories on your travel adventure.

Whether it’s a charmingly, quirky tale for your middle grader like Jennifer L. Holm’s The Fourteenth Goldfish, a brain-teasing mystery like Chris Grabenstein’s Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s Library, or Jack London’s classic The Call of the Wild read by Emmy Award winner Jeff Daniels, you’ll be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride!

Available today – Sloth Love

 

SlothLove

I am a big time animal lover. I love most animals, even ones that others might consider ugly or freakish.

Sloths are animals that many people find both ugly and freakish. For me (and many others), Sloths have a quirky cuteness to them.

If you are not familiar with a sloth, they are tree dwelling mammals that eat mostly leaves and buds off the trees. Some sloths eat small bugs/insects too.

Sloths have human-like faces. They also have super long nails on their paws to help them to grip on to trees. They are a little creepy looking, but in a super adorable way.

I was sent to review and interesting book about sloths called SlothLove.

SlothLove was written by wildlife conservationist and photographer Sam Trull. She also took the photos used in the book.

SlothLove is not just a photo book about sloths – it also tells the story about how she first encountered sloths and an incredible story about a special C-section that was performed to save the life of a baby sloth. It was a first of it’s kind.

In her stunning photo book, SlothLove, Sam shares intimate portraits of these captivating and endearing
animals from her unique perspective as their protector, mother, and friend. Woven in with these images are
unforgettable stories of heartbreak and survival, as well as interesting facts about these intelligent and beautiful creatures. SlothLove is an unforgettable journey into the trees of the Costa Rican rainforest and a moving portrait of the profound connection between humans and animals.

Sam and her sloths were also featured as a main episode of the BBC One series Nature’s Miracle Orphans, which aired on PBS stations around the United States.

Here is a little more information about the book’s author, Sam Trull.

After receiving her BS in zoology from North Carolina State University, Sam Trull went on to earn a masters in primate conservation from Oxford Brookes University in the United Kingdom. She has worked with primates and other animal species for almost twenty years. Over the last three years, she has logged over fifteen thousand hours
working with sloths and has become dedicated to their survival and conservation. In August 2014, Sam cofounded the Sloth Institute Costa Rica, whose vision is to enhance the welfare and conservation of sloths through research and education.

I received a copy of the book to review. Not only was it an interesting story (I learned a lot about sloths), it’s also filled with many adorable photos of these amazing creatures. Their faces convey so much expression. They are truly adorable! Even if you have no interest in the story or information about sloths, the book is still a joy to look through. It’s hard not to smile when you flip through the pages and look at the photos of the sloths.

This is a great book for someone who is a fan of sloths, wildlife or anyone who enjoys an interesting read.

Look for SlothLove where ever books are sold.

Stock up on summer reading with a Lisa Scottoline books giveaway (ends 5/6/16)

 

Summer Reading

Can you believe that the unofficial start to Summer (Memorial Day) is just weeks away? It seems like just yesterday we were lighting up our Christmas tree and making plans for New Year’s Eve. Now it’s time to break out the swimsuits, sunscreen and fire up the barbecues.

What are your plans for the summer? Are you planning to go away on vacation? Are you planning a “staycation?” As for me, my plans are up in the air. I work in local schools which are closed for the summer, which means I’m out of work. I’m not sure if I should take the summer off, looking for a temporary job to hold me over for the summer or look for a new job. I really like my current job, so I rather not look for another one. Plus following the school calendar is a major “perk.” We’ll see…

One thing that many people enjoy doing during the lazy days of summer is reading books. The summer time is a great time to catch up on all those books you have been wanting to read. It’s also a great time to discover new authors and books.

Author Lisa Scottoline recently released a new book which would make for an interesting summer time read. It’s called Most Wanted.

Most Wanted

With Most Wanted (St. Martin’s Press; April 12, 2016; $27.95), New York Times bestselling and Edgar Award winning author Lisa Scottoline delivers a searing, powerful novel that explores hot-button issues of the fertility industry within the framework of an intricately plotted thriller.

Christine Nilsson and her husband Marcus desperately want a baby. After years of trying, unable to conceive, they discover that Marcus is infertile. Working with a highly respected fertility doctor and clinic, they decide together that Christine will use a donor to conceive. Three months pass and Christine is happily pregnant, and saying her final farewells to her beloved colleagues at Nutmeg Hill Elementary School.

But a chance glimpse of a news report on TV results in a shocking revelation. Christine discovers that a man arrested for a series of brutal murders is her donor – the biological father of the child she is carrying. Delving deeper to uncover the truth, she must face her worst fears, and confront a terrifying truth.

With lightning fast pacing and a heart rending dilemma that will make readers ponder what they would do, Most Wanted is sure to be Lisa Scottoline’s most discussed novel yet.

I have not read the novel yet, but it does sound interesting. I’m sure this will have some intense discussions in book clubs.

I don’t think that you can be genetically a murderer, but I’m sure some people have fears about things like that. I wonder how Lisa approaches that subject matter. I guess I’ll just have to read the book to find out.

Look for Most Wanted by Lisa Scottoline where ever books are sold. The book already has decent reviews on Amazon.

Book Giveaway

In honor of the book’s release, I have a great giveaway for a lucky reader. The winner will win FIVE Lisa Scottoline books – plenty of great reading for the summer time and beyond. The prize package includes:
