March is National Reading Month – Get some great tips from Olympic gold skater Kristi Yamaguchi (giveaway ends 3/29/15)

 

Child Reading

Did you know that March is National Reading Month?

Most people know that reading is necessary for a successful future. It’s important to encourage a love of reading, even at a very young age.

I love reading. I read all the time when I was a child and teenager. I loved reading so much that I kept most of my books from my youth. It was my plan to read my beloved books to my own children some day. I am happy to say that I did read my favorite books to my children. I still have them and plan on reading them to my grandchildren some day too.

I also kept my kid’s favorite books. I hope that one day when they are parents they will read their favorite books to their children too.

According to the US Department of Education, only about half of all young children who are three to five-years old are read to on a daily basis by a family member. That’s sad. I know that people lead very busy lives, but surely they can put aside 10-15 minutes once a day to read a story to their child or children.

It makes me sad when I go places, such as a doctor’s office, and see children as young as 3 years old totally immersed in a game on their parent’s cellphone when they should be reading a book.

Reading to a child

It’s up to parents, grandparents and care givers to help nurture a child’s love for reading. If you start when children are young they typically grow up to be active readers as young adults and adults.

I also took cues from my kids. When they showed interest in a book series or subject I would pick up books that would interest them from the library. In fact we used to make weekly trips to our local library. They used to love to pick out their own books to read.

For their birthday, Christmas and Easter they would get books from Santa and the Easter Bunny. Even the Tooth Fairy would bring them book every time they lost a tooth (and a quarter too).

I always made sure there were (and still are) ample books around for my kids. Even though they are teenagers now I still encourage them to read.

Some of my fondest memories with my children are reading them bedtime stories. I miss those days.

LeapFrog and the Always Dream Foundation have teamed up with Olympic gold skater Kristi Yamaguchi to help promote reading for National Reading Month.

Kristi is not only a mother, she is also a published author. She’s published two adorable children’s books – Dream Big, Little Pig! and It’s a Big World Little Pig! – as well as other books.

I was fortunate to have the opportunity to ask Kristi a few questions about encouraging reading in children and what parents can do to help children read. Kristi answered my questions in this exclusive video (below). I hope you will take a few moments to check out her replies.

I appreciate that Kristi took the time to answer my questions. I also want to thank LeapFrog and the Always Dream Foundation for making this possible.

To encourage families to read together, LeapFrog and the Always Dream Foundation have a special initiative called the 20/20 Challenge.

During the month of March, parents are encouraged to take the pledge to read to their child/children for at least 20 minutes a day, every day. For every pledge LeapFrog receives they will donate 20 LeapFrog readers to Kristi Yamaguchi’s non-profit Always Dream Foundation. The books will be donated to under-served classrooms. Through this campaign the goal is to donate over 350,000 books to children in need.

Please consider being a part of this wonderful #LeapFrogChallenge. To learn more, or to take the pledge, visit www.LeapFrog.com/Challenge. The challenge ends on March 31, 2015 so I hope you will take the challenge right away.

20/20 Pledge

To help encourage you to take the pledge, I have an AUTOGRAPHED copy of a Kristi Yamaguchi book (at this time the title is not known). It’s an actual autographed copy, not a photocopy of an autograph.

Check out James Patterson’s new book plus a great prize package giveaway (ends 3/23/15)

 

PublicSchoolSuperherocover

Spring is FINALLY making an appearance here in the Northeast (or at least where I live in New York). No longer are we thinking about snow and frigid temperatures. Instead we are directing our attention to Spring vacation and in just a few short months – Summer!

Now is a great time to gather up some great books to read and enjoy during Spring break, as well as to help you gear up for the warm weather. Nothing goes better poolside (or on the beach) than a great book.

James Patterson, a popular author of both adult and children’s books, has a new book that will soon be released called Public School Superhero. It would make a great addition to any ‘tween or teens reading list – or even your own.

If you are unfamiliar with James Patterson, he is a best selling author who has written popular series such as Alex Cross, Women’s Murder Club and Michael Bennett. He also writes a lot of children’s books (mostly middle school age and older).

James Patterson was selected by readers across America as the Children’s Choice Book Awards Author of the Year in 2010. He is the internationally bestselling author of the highly praised Middle School books, I Funny, Confessions of a Murder Suspect, and the Maximum Ride, Witch & Wizard, Daniel X, and Alex Cross series. His books have sold over 275 million copies worldwide, making him one of the bestselling authors of all time.

James’ newest book aimed towards ‘tweens and teens, Public School Superhero. We have a few other James Patterson books that my kids have read over the years. He really appeals to younger readers just as much as he does adult readers.

In this story about a good kid with a great imagination struggling in a less-than-ideal world, James Patterson brings his bestselling “Middle School”-style humor and sensibility to an urban setting.

Kenny Wright is a kid with a secret identity. In his mind, he’s Stainlezz Steel, super-powered defender of the weak. In reality, he’s a chess club devotee known as a “Grandma’s Boy,” a label that makes him an easy target for bullies. Kenny wants to bring a little more Steel to the real world, but the question is: can he recognize his own true strength before peer pressure forces him to make the worst choice of his life?

James Patterson’s newest illustrated novel is a genuinely funny yet poignant look at middle school in a challenging urban setting, where a kid’s life can depend on the everyday decisions he makes.

We have a copy of this book. I haven’t had a chance to read it yet but I have flipped through the pages and it looks interesting. Even my son, a “reluctant reader,” has shown interest in reading the book. He said he might read it during their upcoming Spring Break.

The book will be released on March 16, 2015. You can pre-order it now on Amazon. It will also be available as an ebook and audio book as well as a hardcover book.

If you are would like to learn more about the newest James Patterson book you can read about it on the books official website, PublicSchoolSuperhero.com. You can also read more about James Patterson and all his book on his website, JamesPatterson.com.

Don’t forget to follow James Patterson on Twitter and Facebook. The official hashtag for this book is #PublicSchoolSuperhero.

I have some great news!

In 2015, James Patterson will donate 100,000 copies of  Public School Superhero to some of the most neglected and underfunded schools in America, and he will launch a major campaign to support school libraries. In 2014, in addition to giving a copy of one of his middle grade books to every sixth grader in the New York City and Chicago public school systems, Patterson gave $1,000,000 to independent bookstores with children’s sections.

When James Patterson meets with underprivileged kids at schools in some of the country’s poorest neighborhoods, they often ask him, “Why can’t we be heroes in any books?”  To answer that question and to bring more books into more kids’ lives, James Patterson is donating 100,000 copies of his new book for young readers, Public School Superhero, to some of the most under-resourced schools and youth programs in the country.  He was moved to make this donation after recognizing a large and underserved community of children who don’t see themselves portrayed in dynamic, entertaining stories often enough.

These same kids also inspired Public School Superhero, by James Patterson and Chris Tebbetts, with illustrations by Cory Thomas, a book about an African American sixth-grade chess devotee named Kenny Wright who lives in an inner city. It’s a story brimming with wit, action, and heart, one all kids are bound to find relatable and entertaining.

The books will be distributed through First Book, a nonprofit social enterprise that provides new books for kids in need. First Book is a nonprofit social enterprise that has distributed more than 125 million books and educational resources to programs and schools serving children from low-income families in the United States and Canada. By making new, high-quality books available on an ongoing basis, First Book is transforming the lives of children in need and elevating the quality of education.

The Zodiac Legacy – New Stan Lee MG Book

 

TheZodiacLegacyCover

I think Stan Lee fans might be interested in learning about a new book he has written.

Comic book and Super Hero fans know who Stan Lee is. He needs no introduction.

The new book is entitled The Zodiac Legacy. I have a copy of the book. I haven’t started to read it yet. I am hoping my son will want to read it for me and act as my co-reviewer.

This is book one in the series.

The Zodiac Legacy is published by Disney Press.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Twelve magical superpowers, One sinister conspiracy, One unlikely hero.

Stan Lee presents a brand new, magical, super-powered adventure!

When twelve magical superpowers are unleashed on the world, a Chinese-America teenager named Steven will be thrown into the middle of an epic global chase. He’ll have to master strange powers, outrun super-powered mercenaries, and unlock the mysterious powers of the Zodiac.

ABOUT THE CREATORS

Stan Lee is known to millions as the man whose Super Heroes propelled Marvel to its preeminent position in the comic book industry. His co-creations include Spider-Man, The Avengers, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, The Fantastic Four, as well as hundreds of others. He introduced Spider-Man as a syndicated newspaper strip that became the most successful of all syndicated adventure strips and has appeared in more than 500 newspapers worldwide. Stan currently remains Chairman Emeritus of Marvel, as well as a member of the Editorial Board of Marvel Comics. He is also the Chairman & Chief Creative officer of POW! Entertainment, a multimedia entertainment company based in Beverly Hills, CA.

Stuart Moore has been a writer, a book editor, and an award-winning comics editor. His recent writing includes Civil War, the first in a new line of prose novels from Marvel Comics, The Art of Iron Man 3 (Marvel, with Marie Javins); and THE 99, a multicultural super hero comic from Teshkeel.

Andie Tong has worked on titles for various franchises, including Tron: Betrayal, Spectacular Spider-Man UK, The Batman Strikes, Smallville, Wheel of Time, TMNT, Masters of the Universe, and Starship Troopers, working for companies such as Disney, Marvel, DC Comics, Panini, Dark Horse, and Dynamite Entertainment, as well as commercial illustrations for numerous advertising agencies including Nike, Universal, CBS, Mattel, and Habsro. When he gets the chance, Andie concept designs for various companies, and also juggles illustration duties on a range of children’s picture storybooks for Harper Collins. Malaysian born, Andie migrated to Australia at a young age, and then moved to London in 2005. In 2012, he journeyed back to Asia and currently resides in Singapore with this wife and daughter.

It sound very interesting. No doubt this will be a popular book among Stan Lee fans. Perhaps he’ll gather new fans after reading this book.

If you would like to learn more visit DisneyZodiac.com. On the website you can learn more about the book, check out videos and learn more about your Zodiac sign. This is not the Zodiac you are familiar with. I’m a Gemini but as per The Zodiac Legacy I am a Monkey. I’m clever, charming, versatile, competitive and cunning. I don’t know about the competitive and cunning part, but I would say that I’m charming, clever and versatile.

You can also follow DisneyHyperion on Twitter. The official hashtag is #ZodiacLegacy.

What do you think about the new book? Does it sound interesting? Does it sound like a book you and/or a family member would be interested in reading?

Check out what is new from Kohl’s Cares

 

KC-Stk-C

If you read my blog on a regular basis you might recall how much I adore the wonderful products that are offered as part of the Kohl’s Cares program.

Often Kohl’s Cares offers consumers fun and popular books along with beautifully made plush animals that go along with the book (each sold separately). They also offer cute toys and things for grown ups too.

In the past have purchased (or have been given) book from Dr. Suess and Disney. Some I have kept for my own collection, others I have donated to the classroom where I work. The same applies to the plush animals. Some I have kept and others I have donated to our classroom.

Here are some examples.

4cc4508cf2609559ed1cede199f79d40

Dumbo

Kohls-Cares

Put-Me-in-the-Zoo

Puzzle

RIO-2-Plush-Kohls-Cares

The “Put Me In The Zoo” and “RIO 2″ plush and book are mine that I keep on my bookshelf along with a Dr. Suess book and plush from Kohl’s Cares and another plush/book set.

Children love the snugly plush animals and the books are very popular with children because they are titles (or characters) that they are familiar with.

Kohl’s Cares has new products available. This time they are books and plush based on Disney * Pixar films such as Up, Cars and Toy Story.

Kohl’s Cares sent me a wonderful surprise recently. It contained a Cars book and plush (Lightening McQueen) and a Toy Story book and plus (Rex). If you follow me on Instagram (SheScribes) you probably saw the pictures of them that I uploaded.

CARS

REX

Kohl’s Cares also has products for “grown ups” too (personally I enjoy the children’s books and plush the best), as well as toys such as puzzles and activity books. I have some awesome cookbooks I’ve purchased from Kohl’s Cares.

Kohl’s Cares also sent me a activity book with a dry erase marker based on characters/movies from Disney * Pixar films. I donated it to our classroom, however I took the dry erase marker. We’ll hold on to that for the older kids (little ones and dry erase markers don’t got well together – ha ha).

BOOK

The great thing about Kohl’s Cares products is that each one is only $5.00. Where else can you get a quality made plush for only $5.00? Even the books cost more than $5.00 in most books stores. For $10.00 you could give a child a lovely gifts of a beautiful book and an adorable plush.

If your child attends a lot of birthday parties it would be a great idea to stock up on Kohl’s Cares items. They are only $5.00 each and they look like you spent a lot more. Plus you can give book/plush sets ($10 in total) and it would make for a beautiful gift for a child. Not only do they get a new plush friend they also get a book to read, and as you know, encouraging a child to read is very important.

I just purchase the book “UP” and the plush Dug for my personal collection.

UP

Some sets I love to keep for my family. Others I like to donate to our classroom.

In addition to the wonderful products Kohl’s Cares offers, proceeds from the sales of these products goes towards children’s charities. Kohl’s Cares donates 100% of the net profit to Kohl’s Cares charities that support kid’s health and education programs nationwide. Since 2000 Kohl’s Cares has raised and impressive $257 million dollars. Talk about a “win-win” situation. You get wonderful products and the proceeds goes towards children’s charities.

You can find Kohl’s Cares products around the check out aisles in Kohl’s stores, as well as online (do a search for Kohl’s Cares). Kohl’s Cares products sell out quickly, so if there is something you have your eye on don’t wait too long. In addition Kohl’s Cares offers new products several times a year.

For more information or to find a Kohl’s location near you visit www.Kohls.com. You can also find Kohl’s on the various social media sites (all the links are found on the bottom of their website).

Do you have any Kohl’s Cares products? I know they have been around for a while. I’ve seen some wonderful products I wish I had known about because I would have purchased them.

Cathy Mitchell’s Quick & Easy Dump Cakes

 

Dump-Cakes-Cover

Have you ever heard of a “Dump Cake” before? Until recently I have never heard of that term before.

A Dump Cake is a cake (or dessert) that you make by simply dumping ingredients in a pan and popping it in the oven. There is no measuring or weighing involved and barely any mixing.

That’s my kind of baking!

I’m not much of a great baker (I’m a good cook). Baking has never been a strong point of mine. I also don’t have the time to spend hours in the kitchen baking.

I was recently sent a copy of the book Cathy Mitchell’s Quick & Easy Dump Cakes.

There are a lot of delicious sounding recipes in the book. Unfortunately most of them don’t have pictures along with the recipes. I am a very visual person. I tend to make recipes (baking or cooking) where I can see what the final result should look like. I don’t like to “guess” what something is supposed to look like. I would rather see the end result so I can make sure my end result looks similar.

I have plenty of cookbooks that don’t have photos with the recipes so I am used to it.

There are a lot of recipes in this book – over 25o of them.

I haven’t had the opportunity to try any of the recipes yet, but I do have several that are “dog earred” so I can try them out after the holidays.

Here are two sample recipes from the book (shared with permission).

Mixed Berry

Mixed Berry Cake

2 packages (12 ounces) frozen mixed berries, thawed and drained

1 can (12ounces) Lemon-lime soda

1 package (about 15 ounces) white cake mix

¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

½ cup cinnamon chips

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray 13X9-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Spread mixed berries in prepared pan. Top with cake mix, spreading evenly. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Slowly pour soda over top, covering cake mix as much as possible. Sprinkle with cinnamon chips.
  3. Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center of cake comes out clean. Cool at least 15 minutes before serving.

Makes 12 to 16 servings

Pumpkin Pecan Dump Cake

Pumpkin Pecan Cake-

  • 1 can solid-pack pumpkin
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 package yellow mix
  • ¾ cup butter, cut into thin slices
  • ½ cup pecan halves
  1.  Preheat oven to 350. Spray 13X9-inch baking pan with non-stick spray.
  2. Combine pumpkin, evaporated milk, brown sugar, eggs, pumpkin pie spice and salt in medium bowl; stir until well blended. Pour into prepared pan, top with cake mix, spread evenly. Top with butter in single layer, covering cake mix as much as possible. Sprinkle with pecans.
  3. Bake about 1 hour or until toothpick inserted into center of cake comes out clean. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.

Makes 12-16 servings

As you can see, there IS mixing and measuring involved. In fact I was rather shocked by that. I assumed the entire book was Dump Cake recipes. I went page by page and only found a few true Dump Cake recipes. Most recipes are regular recipes where you need to mix and measure.

The recipes in the book do sound delicious, and most of the ones I have dog earred are regular recipes (I do have two true Dump Cake recipes I want to try, especially the skillet S’mores. That looks good, quick and easy.

Even though I have watched a few videos staring Cathy Mitchell, the lady behind the Quick & Easy Dump Cake Cookbook. The dump recipes she made she didn’t mix the ingredients. Honestly I think I would mix them – at least a little bit. I would be worried that unmixed cake mix will come out dry and crumbly. I would want to make 100% certain that the dry ingredients were wet. I think I’ll mix the cake mix and water/soda (yes, soda!) in a bowl THEN pour it on top of the other ingredients just to be on the safe side.

I’m a bit disappointed that the entire book was not Dump Cake recipes as the cover would lead you to believe, but the recipes inside do sound delicious and seem pretty quick and easy to make.

If you would like to learn more about Cathy Mitchell’s Quick & Easy Dump Cakes visit www.BuyDumpCakes.com.

Have you ever made a Dump Cake before? If so, what kind of cake did you make and how did it turn out?

Have you tried any of Cathy Mitchell’s recipes? How did it turnout?

Feel free to share your thoughts. I always love to hear from readers. :-)

New York Times Best Selling Author David Baldacci Giveaway (ends 12/14/14)

 

reading

My husband and I have not started Christmas shopping yet for our kids. Usually we’re done by the end of October! Due to several unexpected car repairs and other expenses we simply haven’t had the funds to do any Christmas shopping. HOPEFULLY SOON!

We’ve had our kids make up a “wish list”. Our son never really wants anything – literally! Even as a little boy he never really wanted anything. This year he wants a movie camera. The two he showed me were $900 and $1,500. Yikes! No way! I hope he has other ideas.

Our daughter on the other hand has a list a mile long. She normally does.

One of the items on her “wish list” are books. That’s great. I love that she wants books to read, but she’s not telling me what title or what author! She needs to narrow that down because there are millions of books available and I want to make sure I get ones she’ll actually read.

I received to review two books from New York Times Best Selling Author David Baldacci to review – The Escape and The Finisher. Since my daughter was asking for books for Christmas, and I’d like to encourage my son to read more books, I gave them each a book. I gave my daughter The Finisher and my son The Escape.

Books are not only great gifts they are also good to have on hand for cold, wintery days where going outside is not an option. Our daughter especially can’t be out in the cold. She has a condition called Raynaud’s Disease where the cold causes her blood vessels to spasm. Her hands LITERALLY turn pure white – actual white – when she’s cold. She complains of being cold even in 60 degree temperatures. Needless to say when it’s cold outside our daughter stays indoors. That is why book are great because at least she’ll have something to do and she won’t be bored.

As of this writing neigher of my kids have finished the books yet, but I know my daughter is more than half way through so she must like the book. I asked her what her thoughts are and she said it’s “good”. She asked if there were more books in the series.

My son has read several pages in the book. Maybe what could translate into a chapter or two. He’s not much of a reader. When I asked him his thoughts he just shrugged his shoulders and said “It’s alright”.

My daughter said she’d read The Escape when she’s done with The Finisher, even if my son it’s done reading it yet.

Here is some information about both David Baldacci, as well as information about the author himself.

BaldacciTheEscapeCover

About The Escape (Book 3: John Puller series) 

A prison unlike any other. Military discipline rules. Its security systems are unmatched. None of its prisoners dream of escaping. They know it’s impossible . . . until now.

John Puller’s older brother, Robert, was convicted of treason. His inexplicable escape from the country’s most-secure prison makes him the most wanted criminal in the country. Some in the government believe that John Puller represents their best chance of capturing Robert alive, and so Puller is ordered to bring in his brother to face justice.

But Puller quickly discovers that his brother is pursued by others who don’t want him to survive. At the same time, Puller is pushed into an uneasy, fraught partnership with Veronica Knox, an agent who may have an agenda of her own.

They dig more deeply into the case together, and Puller finds that not only are Knox’s allegiances unclear, but there are troubling details about his brother’s conviction. It becomes clear that someone out there doesn’t want the truth to ever come to light. As the nationwide manhunt for Robert grows more urgent, Puller’s masterful skills as an investigator and strengths as a fighter may not be enough to save his brother—or himself.

BaldacciTheFinisherCover
