Read and Share Look I'm Reading Bible Storybook Review


With more than 1.3 million sold in the Read and Share® brand, this is the perfect next step!

Your family will love this Bible storybook in the popular rebus style with pictures sprinkled between words, allowing your little ones to read along with you! Kids will love to engage with the Bible stories by pointing out the pictures among the words to tell the story. This is a proven way to help children learn and retain the stories through interaction. In the rebus format, children see the picture key, learn the word, and then complete the sentence using the correct picture. This gives children positive learning and interactive reading time.

Stories include: Adam and Eve and the Sneaky Snake, Noah and the Big Boat, Moses and the Ten Commandments, David and the Giant, Mary’s Big Surprise, Jesus Stops a Storm, Jesus Goes to Heaven, and A Promise to All God’s Children.

I recevied a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review- A great learning tool for little readers because the illustrations are easy to recognize.  I think it is a real treat to be able to read a clean story to your loved ones.

Method Holiday Hand Wash Review and GIVEAWAY

Buying gifts for family and friends is stressful enough, but finding the perfect give to give your child’s teacher is an unnecessary struggle. If you’re working on a holiday gift story, the Method Holiday Hand Wash Collection creates an ideal gift set.

The seasonal scents are sure to sleigh a favorite teacher with frosted fir and vanilla chai, each complemented by a fun + festive forest design which evokes snow-dusted evergreens and bright baubles and sparkling stars.

I recevied complimentary product.

Cassandra's Review-  I favored the Frosted Fir scent over the Vanilla Chai but they are both really nice on my hands.  I would not use them right before eating because the stronger fragrance will be very noticeable.   They are a really great hand soap for holiday parties and my family enjoys the blast of scent they provide during use and they are not hard to rinse off. 

The Library Book 1: CURSE OF THE BOGGIN by D.J. MacHale Blog Tour and GIVEAWAY


Enter the Library, where no one knows how the stories end . . . and finding out will be terrifying.

There’s a place beyond this world, beyond the land of the living, where ghosts go to write their unfinished stories—stories that ended too soon. It’s a place for unexplained phenomena: mysteries that have never been solved, spirits that have never been laid to rest. And there’s only one way in or out.

It’s called the Library, and you can get there with a special key. But beware! Don’t start a story you can’t finish. Because in this library, the stories you can’t finish just might finish you.

Marcus O’Mara is a 13 year old guy at a crossroads. He constantly finds himself in trouble at school, with his friends, and with his adoptive parents. Marcus doesn’t believe things can get any worse for him…until they get worse.

Much worse.

He begins seeing strange and impossible visions; gets thrown into paranormal danger and is haunted by a mysterious ghost with a singular goal: to give him a key.

It’s a key that opens the door to a mysterious library. When that door opens, the incredible adventure for Marcus and his friends begins as they learn the truth about Marcus’ past and uncover the strange world of unfinished stories that are found on the shelves of the Library.


I recevied a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  A chilling but kid friendly book that will delight readers of all ages.   It provides an excellent story with the hints of creepy that is blended just enough to make you walk a little faster around the house at night.
