An Amish Heirloom Book Review

An Amish Heirloom
A Legacy of Love, The Cedar Chest, The Treasured Book, A Midwife's Dream
By Amy Clipston, Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller, Kelly Irvin
35553353

A Legacy of Love by Amy Clipston

Local volunteer fire fighter Leon King agrees to repair his ex-girlfriend Susie Bontrager’s grandparents’ antique rocking chairs for her future home with her fiance and is forced to acknowledge that his feelings for her have not quite gone away. As Susie spends time with Leon, she begins to recognize she is marrying the wrong man for all the wrong reasons.

The Cedar Chest by Beth Wiseman

Decades after inheriting her great grandmother’s cedar chest, Emma Fisher decides to pry it open only to discover a beautiful love story in the form of letters between her great grandparents. But as Emma immerses herself in their story, family secrets are revealed, and she must decide whether to share them to preserve family history or honor her great grandparents’ decision to leave them hidden.

The Treasured Book by Kathleen Fuller

For the past two years, Shane Broyles has felt God leading him to join the Amish. He’s staying with his friends Noah and Ivy Schlabach in Birch Creek, OH, where he is reunited with Lucy Fisher, an old friend of Noah’s family. Shane and Lucy have never revealed their feelings for each other, but when they stumble upon an antique Bible at a flea market, they feel drawn to each other and to the mystery of the contents found within.

The Midwife’s Dream by Kelly Irvin

Iris Beachy serves as a midwife in her district where she longs for a family of her own. When her friend’s brother Mahon Kurtz seeks her help in delivering the baby of two young teenagers who have sought refuge in their town, they begin to see each other in a different light. Unprepared for parenthood, the young couple leave their baby girl behind in an antique crib quilt resembling the one destined for Iris when she becomes a mother. Mahon and Iris come together to take care of the baby as they try to find her parents, and they begin to see new possibilities for their future.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  A sweet collection of cozy settings and simple moments for the reader to enjoy.   There is enough drama and style to the authors words that the stories transform into hours of enjoyable reading.

In Bug Lab for Kids, Mississippi State University associate professor, extension entomologist (bug expert), and educator John W. Guyton shares his knowledge and excitement about all things beautiful, creepy, and crawly.

Every chapter is bursting with photos, illustrations, fascinating facts and fun activities--including experiments, hunt-and-catch and citizen science assignments, and arts and crafts projects--that teach kids about bugs' physical characteristics, behavior, and how they affect agriculture, health, and water quality.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's review- Informational with added photos.  While I would not let my kids catch most of the bugs included, the book was still very educational and would make a great resource for homeschool groups.

A Gentle Heart $50 Amazon GC or Paypal Cash Giveaway

A Gentle Heart by Christie Logan
A Gentle Heart by [Logan, Christie]
Ambitious realtor Alex has plans for his life—big plans—and getting dumped by his fiancĂ©e won’t sidetrack him. He’ll have to face her again at an important business function, but he won’t let himself be the object of pity and scorn. What better way to show the world—and his ex— how well he’s doing than to arrive with a beautiful woman on his arm? A woman he finds, of all places, behind the lingerie counter of a department store.

Tyffanie has dreams that extend far beyond her sales counter, but she’s been burned by men only interested in her looks. Deep inside, she’s still the gawky, freckle-faced girl other kids used to tease. When handsome, successful Alex enters her life, everything changes. He’s the first to look beneath the surface, respect her, and care about her hopes and dreams.

Alex discovers there is so much more to Tyffanie than outward beauty. He’s falling in love with her kind soul and gentle heart when he must decide how far he’s willing to pursue success and all its trappings. Because his need to win at all costs may cost him Tyffanie’s love.

The Circle Maker Devotions for Kids By Mark Batterson Review

The Circle Maker Devotions for Kids
By Mark Batterson
36532732
Based on the New York Times bestselling The Circle Maker and Draw the Circle by Mark Batterson, The Circle Maker Devotions for Kids encourages kids ages 8 and up to pray circles around their biggest dreams.

Boys and girls will learn the story of Honi the Circle Maker, who drew a circle in the sand and didn’t budge from it until God answered a seemingly impossible prayer. Kids are encouraged to be brave and bold in their prayers and dreams just like Honi, and to see how God answers prayers in big and small ways. Featuring 100 inspiring messages and a beautifully designed interior, this devotional makes a perfect gift for young readers

I received complimentary copies.

Cassandra's Review-  The book is like a guide and then provides an explanation for why that is happening.   You must like the Bible and love as well as truly believe in God for this book to make a huge impact.   It is a thoughtful way to gift a child knowledge and stories that will encourage them to follow a good path in life.   I would recommend this book to children who can read it by themselves and understand the meaning as well as words, but I would expect the adults to take time to explore it with them.

Dating the Prince $25 Amazon GC or Paypal Cash Giveaway

Dating the Prince by Alina Snow
39821798
Small-town girl, Katie O’Connor has always dreamed of seeing her name in lights. Check the box for fame, a movie deal, the perfect leading role that comes with a gorgeous leading man! Katie moved to Hollywood, elbows her way into auditions, lives on a shoestring budget—whatever is required to land a deal, she throws her heart into… until she’s involved in a royal kidnapping.

As the future king, Prince Alexander refuses to rule from an ivory tower. Duty-bound, he intends to relate to his future subjects, regardless of their walk of life. Before his coronation, he needs a foolproof plan to outrun his security team and go temporarily AWOL. While visiting L.A., all it takes is a sound stage collision and Alex is blindsided by a headstrong woman who is simply irresistible. So much so, he calls in a favor in order to secure her help … as his pretend girlfriend.

Their worlds are oceans apart, but their immediate attraction is impossible to put aside, especially their nonstop banter. Miffed at being wrangled into a situation that might blow up in her face, Katie comes up with her own plan. If The Prince is serious about walking the walk of the common folk, she’s only too happy to oblige as his pretend girlfriend. Through an ice storm, a road trip, kitchen duty, and a Texas pig race, Alex captures the hearts of the locals as well as Ms. O’Connor’s.

What starts out as a deal Katie can’t refuse becomes the acting role of a lifetime… letting Prince Alexander go without a fight.

A delightfully funny retelling of The Prince and The Pauper that romance readers of all ages will enjoy. On a two-week 1,500-mile road trip, Katie and Alex discover the end of the road might just be the beginning of their ‘Happy Ever After’ together.

Take Free College Level Courses

Founder Grant Aldrich Answers Questions  about OnlineDegree. com, stay-at-home parents can go back to school for free.  All from home, on their own schedule, no pressure or entrance exams.  They could literally be changing diapers and saving thousands on tuition towards a degree...meaning, they no longer have to wait for kids to be out of the house.

It's truly disruptive.  By understanding the predicament that parents have, it's obvious that the current educational system doesn't address their needs.  We're changing that.

Why?

Two years ago, my then pregnant wife, Ravit, said to me, "Nobody makes it easy for parents to go back to college...don't they understand we're busy and trying to save money?" My wife's frustration was a big reason why I founded our startup. As a stay-at-home mom, she didn't have time to get another degree. Yet, she wanted to learn a new career to work from home. If parents want to rejoin the workforce after spending years at home raising children, how do they get the careers and degrees to stay competitive? Money is tight, schedules are unpredictable, and there is never enough time.

Who Are We?

OnlineDegree.com is a team of startup veterans, leading academics and PhDs (from NYU, West Virginia University, Georgetown, etc). We’ve been working for over 2 years to make higher education more affordable and accessible for everyone. It’s been an incredible adventure to combat entrenched roadblocks and norms.

How it Works

Students take as many college-level courses as they’d like on Psychology, Robotics, Computer Programming, Marketing, Criminal Justice and many many more…free. We’ve then partnered with accredited universities across the country so students can receive college credit for the courses they’ve taken (there are pathways to receive credit at over 1,400 schools in total throughout the US.)

Our courses are:
Online and Available 24/7 - No class schedules, no fixed times, and completely self-paced.
Easy to Get Started- No applications, No entrance exams, and most importantly, No tuition.
Interesting and Top Notch- Our professors are experts in their respective fields with PhDs and advanced degrees. The courses are incredibly interesting.
Recommended for over 44 units of college credit to over 1,400 universities and colleges

Why Is This So Disruptive?

Stay-at-home parents can now start their path back to school while still changing diapers at home with the kids…regardless of their finances or busy schedules. They can test drive different courses and subjects on their own schedule, be better prepared for college-level coursework at a university, and receive college credits toward their degree. Given the often intimidating, inflexible and costly nature of applying to a typical community college or 4-year, we’re more like “wading” into the pool rather than forcing everyone to jump in.

How Have We Made It Free?

We will always be 100% free to students…we're not going to compromise on that. We’re exploring a marketplace for tutoring, Patreon, Kickstarter, university sponsorships, private grants, and many other avenues. We are bold enough to look outside of the traditional tuition paradigm, there are all kinds of ways to keep the lights on without charging students or sacrificing educational quality.

Bridging the Gap:

By just understanding the predicament that parents have, I realized how poorly the current system addresses their needs...and the needs of millions of other people just like them. OnlineDegree. com changes that...not only is it easy to get started, courses are available 24/7 at their own pace, and could save them thousands of dollars in money and time.

Pre-enrollment is happening right now.

I received complimentary press access. 

Only One Life by Jackie Green Review

Only One Life: How a Woman's Every Day Shapes an Eternal Legacy
36575731
Life keeps us running so fast and frenzied that we often lose sight of each day’s holy potential. Yet as a woman loved and called by God, your ordinary everyday matters more than you could possibly imagine. 

Your choices today shape the legacy you leave for future generations. You are part of a story that has existed long before you and will long outlast you. And you can play a unique and irreplaceable role.

In Only One Life, mother-and-daughter team Jackie Green and Lauren McAfee invite you to join the company of women God is using to change the world. Through vivid portraits of women of the Bible, women of history, and women shaping the world today, you will discover how God multiplies seemingly small daily offerings of faithfulness. Come and see your own story reflected in the lives of women such as:


Mary Magdalene, the first witness to Jesus’s resurrection.
Catherine Booth, an early apologist for women’s rights and co-founder of the Salvation Army.
Christine Caine, a contemporary speaker and human rights activist
And other ordinary women who have done extraordinary things, including Harriet Tubman, Queen Esther, Lottie Moon, and Joni Eareckson Tada.
Building a legacy through your “only one life” is not a calling for the elite few. It is a calling for you—as a woman with unique capacity to shape the future through your faith, family, gifts, and leadership. Only One Life will encourage and empower you to develop grit, grace, and the long view—able to change your world forever—starting today. 

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review -  You get the point of view of the author but it references women of the Bible as a key to giving you almost a structure for upcoming moments in life.   It is faith based and I feel like if you are connected more so to God and interested in the Bible as well as have strong beliefs, this will be a good book to examine and take from.

The Spirit-Led Heart by Suzanne Eller Review

The Spirit-Led Heart: Living a Life of Love and Faith Without Borders
by Suzanne Eller
36739500
New from Bestselling Proverbs 31 Author Suzanne Eller!

Without realizing it, we've gotten lost in our own little lives. We've settled for "good enough" and days that run together in an unmemorable blur. We long for something to shake us up, but we're exhausted by the thought of it too.

In her warm, vulnerable style, bestselling Proverbs 31 author Suzanne Eller shows how living and loving without limits has nothing to do with your own efforts--and it has everything to do with God's Holy Spirit. Unpacking the promises and teachings Jesus shared with the disciples about the Holy Spirit, Suzanne shows how you can stop settling and start truly living. When you learn to unwrap the gift of his presence, you'll find the world-changing, foundation-shaking, soul-stirring life of passion and purpose God is waiting to give you.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  Filled with faith based wisdom and help from the words of the author this book is both eye opening and uplifting.  It will put your spirit in check and get you back on track if your are strong and fifth and may be faltering.   There are no steps that have you researching into the night or study questions that you need to decipher which makes this a great read for anyone who wants to get and find Jesus.

After the loss of her young son, Carver, an African-American preacher’s wife named Delilah Evans moves with her family from Montgomery, Alabama, to Sinking Creek, Pennsylvania, for a fresh start. The last thing she could have imagined was becoming friends with Emma Mullet, a reclusive Amish woman.

Emma is fighting personal battles of her own and feels estranged from her small Amish community. The secrets that have kept her isolated from her own community serve to unite her in an unlikely friendship with Delilah.

Sparrow, Delilah’s eldest daughter, knows she is responsible for the death of her little brother. When tensions at home become unbearable, she seeks solace at Emma’s house, becoming the surrogate daughter Emma has always wanted. Sparrow, however, is hiding secrets of her own, secrets that could sever all ties to her safe refuge.

Life for these three gets harder when church and social issues confront them, causing rifts within Sinking Creek’s three distinct communities: whites, blacks, and Amish. When their carefully protected secrets come to light, there seems to be little hope for friendship, restoration, or even forgiveness. But when the unthinkable happens, Delilah and Emma find themselves looking into the mirror of their own self-deceptions and are forced to make a choice that will set the way of their future.

Cassandra's Review-  The book provides so much more than a bringing of people together.  It has a combination of so much more that will keep the reader in tuned to finishing the chapters.   I think that there is enough drama and truth to this story that you can easily get sucked in to the pace and find a cozy place in your home to nestledown and devour.

Before I Saw You By Amy K. Sorrells Review

36840297
Folks are dying fast as the ash trees in the southern Indiana town ravaged by the heroin epidemic, where Jaycee Givens lives with nothing more than a thread of hope and a quirky neighbor, Sudie, who rescues injured wildlife. After a tragedy leaves her mother in prison, Jaycee is carrying grief and an unplanned pregnancy she conceals because she trusts no one, including the kind and handsome Gabe, who is new to town and to the local diner where she works.

Dividing her time between the diner and Sudie's place, Jaycee nurses her broken heart among a collection of unlikely friends who are the closest thing to family that she has. Eventually, she realizes she can't hide her pregnancy any longer--not even from the baby's abusive father, who is furious when he finds out. The choices she must make for the safety of her unborn child threaten to derail any chance she ever had for hope and redemption. Ultimately, Jaycee must decide whether the truest form of love means hanging on or letting go.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's  Review Q & A -

- What did you like about the book and why? The writing style is good and the author really dug at the heart while taking my mind on a trip.

- What did you not like about the book and why?  I did not like the overflow of drama and the settings in which things were more overdone than needed or  the burst of feelings that lace in during the storyline.

- What did you learn?  The author has a great imagination, but a lot of the book could easily been told as a true story for someone.

- To whom would you recommend this book and why?  I feel like it would be a book for adult women because of the genre and feel to the story, but I guess anyone older in age can read it with some interest.

Cassandra's Review- The product arrived with no packaging, just in a bubble mailer and there was no brand name on them.  At first it looked like a garter belt and then I finally figured out what it was.   It is suspenders for your shirt and is straightforward.  The product is exactly like the photo.  I think this would make a different father's day gift this year and is probably something the man in your life does not already own.  I also think that a woman could use this if needed.

I received complimentary product. 

Life Falls Apart, but You Don't Have To By Julie Potiker Review

Life Falls Apart, But You Don't Have To: Mindful Methods for Staying Calm in the Midst of Chaos
LIFE FALLS APART, BUT YOU DON’T HAVE TO
Mindful Methods for Staying Calm in the Midst of Chaos

Julie Potiker turns some enormous lemons in her life into the sweetest lemonade in this wonderful book. She brings together practical brain science, powerful methods from psychotherapy, and her own friendly, funny, encouraging, and heartfelt voice to offer a wonderful roadmap and toolbox for when life throws some lemons at you.—Rick Hanson, PhD, author of Buddha’s Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love, and Wisdom; and Hardwiring Happiness: The New Brain Science of Contentment, Calm, and Confidence.

At one point in her life, Julie Potiker was so stressed that she began manifesting symptoms of a stroke. It was at this point she realized she needed to change her life and find better ways of managing the challenges she would inevitably face.

Now she’s sharing the methods she developed with you. In this compassionate and courageous new guide, Potiker shows you how to

find happiness apart from your children’s lives,
practice important self-care rituals,
rewire your own brain to receive happiness,
feel safe and comforted in the midst of the chaos, and
listen to your inner critic without letting it tear you down.
Potiker also introduces Jewish tradition into her mindfulness lessons and explains the importance of following your own spiritual and emotional values as you embark on this new journey.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  The author shares her light and truth for the reader to feast their mind on.  The chapters provide steady and informative ways to pull yourself together, with the help of true stories to bind the effect.  I would recommend this for a reader who is down or in the negative space of life because it offers more than just self help.

The Pact By Cody Garbrandt with Mark Dagostino Review

The Pact A UFC Champion, a Boy with Cancer, and Their Promise to Win the Ultimate Battle
By Cody Garbrandt with Mark Dagostino
36604817
In the footsteps of The Blind Side comes a story on the power of friendship, commitment and the ultimate will to keep living.

Cody Garbrandt grew up in one of the most violent places in America; coal country, deep in the Appalachian mountains of Ohio. There was a longstanding culture of fighting, drugs, mayhem and chaos. Raised in this environment by a single mom (his dad left him at the young age of three to reside in the Ohio State Penitentiary), Cody grew up fighting and he grew up wild. His future ticketed him for the coal mines, but after spending two weeks deep in the earth, Cody decided that wasn’t for him. The way out?  Mixed Martial Arts.  Cody drifted for two years, spending as much time on street fights as in the gym. Then, at age 20, Cody’s brother (and frequent combatant) introduced Cody to five-year old Maddux Mason. Maddux was deathly ill with leukemia, his survival by no means assured. A friendship quickly developed and shortly after they met, they made a promise to each other: Maddux would beat cancer and Cody would win a championship belt.

Through five long years of pain and hardship, they both persevered; Cody, through the agony and sacrifices of becoming a champion, and Maddux through the horrors of chemotherapy. They loved and supported each other. They served as each other’s inspiration. And in December 2016, Cody won his MMA Championship belt which he promptly presented to Maddux, who had just beaten cancer and was in remission.

This is their story.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  Not for the faint of heart because the sadness alone will be very deep and real. However the inspiration through the tears was worth resing and I feel like this would be a great book for anyone who seeks a true story with heart and can even encourage the reader to do just a little more in life.   I am glad that the cancer was in remission and that the book took a more happy note towards the end.

Send Down the Rain By Charles Martin Review

35540771
Allie's second husband is killed tragically when his 18-wheeler crashes into the rocks near their home in Cape San Blas--the tanker was full of fuel and the explosion could be seen on overhead satellites. She'd already lost the beloved waterfront restaurant her parents started and now losing her husband, no matter how unfulfilling their marriage was, might just push her over the edge.

Joseph's time in Vietnam left him with scars that never seemed to heal. No matter how he's tried to love or what he's tried to do since then, he can't pull himself out of the wreckage of his former life. His trust and security shaken, he isolates himself in a cabin. But every morning, he faithfully pours two cups of coffee, drinking his while he sits with the second, and then pouring out the full cup.

It's no small coincidence that Joseph found a mother and her two young children lost in the woods near his cabin. Or that when he helps them return to family in Florida, he's near enough to see that explosion. Near enough to know it's close to home. Near enough to know that his childhood sweetheart needs him.

The years have built so much distance between them, but it's the secrets that may be their final undoing. Send Down the Rain reminds us of the beauty of truth . . . and the power of love to wash away the past.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's review-  Drama, sadness and love all mix in to blend a tale that will steal a few hours of your day or a few days of short hours it depends on how you chose to read it.  I found the flow to be great and the writing style to charge me to want to keep on with the chapters until I finished.  The author is wonderful at lacing in a great story that I would recommend to anyone older that would enjoy the fiction and pace. 

The Ultimate Guide to Using Influencer Marketing By Joe Sinkwitz Review

The Ultimate Guide to Using Influencer Marketing by [Sinkwitz, Joe]
The Ultimate Guide to Using Influencer Marketing 
by Joe Sinkwitz

Have you ever wondered how that Instagram model is able to afford the seemingly endless luxuries in all the photos she posts?

Have you ever wished that it was you getting all those products and being paid all that money?

Have you ever thought that you simply wish she was promoting your product?

The Ultimate Guide to Influencer Marketing satisfies all three of these questions, by providing an in-depth look at the business world of influencers, how to use them for your business, and how to become one yourself. Written by digital marketing industry veteran Joe Sinkwitz, CEO of Intellifluence with a foreword by Copypress CEO Dave Snyder, you’ll learn how to create influencer campaigns for your brand or agency from scratch and how influencers can grow their audiences to full potential over 29 actionable chapters.

Cassandra's review-  I had mixed feelings while reading this book because it was filled with name drops and had an overall feel of advertising and pushing of the authors company along with his favorite people.  The information in between the references and added analytics, was very useful but I also read a few places where I would not agree.

 Overall I would say that this book is getting a good portion of influencer marketing under wraps and would be helpful to a newer brand or influencer.  I also happen to be a member of the authors website and use the service he talks about which is where the opportunity to review the book was given to me.  The site is flooded with brands wanting Amazon reviews and most ask for then to be positive.  Other brands want work for little or nothing in exchange, like a product you could never really need or spammy links to be added for a lowball amount of money.

 It is hard for an influencer to find work, but even harder for them to be treated fairly and I feel like when a CEO plainly tells a brand to adjust the amounts of fairness for each influencer or circumstance that it seems a little off putting, Granted everyone needs to makes money, but expecting someone to take less than you would offer someone else is unbelievable.
I also feel like if you are going to promote micro influencers but at the same time tell your clients to pick higher engaging influencers there is something unsettling.  To me this may just be a case of another person trying to get ahead in the world and using a group of others to do so.  I will lastly point out that the author is extremely smart and very valuable to the influencer marketing world as well as a product reviewer so he does know both ends of the spectrum, but I can tell this just from reading the book because I do not personally know him.

I received a complimentary copy and compensation.

About the Author

Joe Sinkwitz is an executive, author, father, and husband, living in perpetually sunny Scottsdale, AZ. Holding dual bachelors of science degrees in Management Information Systems and Operations Management from the University of Arizona and a MBA from W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University, he takes an analytical approach to the softer side of the persuasive sciences and matches it with the technological flair that comes with his 20+ year involvement in digital marketing.

 Focusing primarily in competitive search marketing (Principal of Digital Heretix), content marketing (Advisor/Board member and former CRO of CopyPress), and influencer marketing (CEO of Intellifluence) over the course of his career and having worked with tens of thousands of clients, websites, and internal projects, he brings that background and distills it publicly for the first time in The Ultimate Guide to Using Influencer Marketing. 

When he's not speaking internationally on a broad swath of digital marketing topics, he can be commonly found pretending to work out while in the office, badgering employees at 5am with "brilliant" ideas, and beating bemused strangers in nacho eating contests.

Spring Fun with Goliath Games #reviews

Add a dash of fast-paced fun to your life! Each game takes 2 minutes to learn and only 10 minutes to play for quick family fun. Buy them individually or as a set with a unique spice rack!
 Spicy Games Sugar Cubes is simple to learn and does not have a lot of components, but the mind usage is there.  You have to think up a sentence within 20 seconds based on the letters that you roll on the dice.  Now you could also skip the rules and play without a timer to really help out younger kids and also give yourself a mind exercise. 
Coffee Break  is fun if you are also playing with someone at your own pace.  What I mean is if you take more time to figure out matches and then you have to remember the names to call them, there might be a disadvantage in the playing.   I was able to modify the rules to make it fair for everyone to have time to play and figure out what was being rolled.  
 Salt and Pepper  is a simple game of luck.  It requires no hard skill of course you have to be able to add, just shake and guess salt or pepper.  So this game is going to be fair and fun for all players.  It is also fast unless your playing with a child that can not decide which to pick at every toss.  I did figure out that by stating which one they wanted first for all tosses, we were able to move the game along. 

The big boss is looking for the best builders in town! Step in line and see who can be the first to bring the blueprint cards to life. Build your structure quickly yet carefully on your platform. Then SMASH your boomer to send your opponent’s structure tumbling. There’s only room for one builder in this town… do you have what it takes? Or will you get boomed on your way to the top? For 2 players. Ages 4 and up.

Helps build STEM skills such as analytical thinking and shape recognition.
Unique game play that doesn’t need batteries!
High-quality components with bright, vibrant colors.

Cassandra's Review- The game offers a challenge if you can not balance things easily and especially if your opponent blasts the platform on your side before they are even finished, but that's just what kids do.   If played correctly or even without a certain amount of time to finish or modifying the rules to suit your family's special needs, this game is really fun.  

 Pop the Pig ® is an international preschool classic that is adored by millions of children – it was the top-selling preschool game in 2016 and 2017 according to retailer sales data collected by NPD! Kids spin the spinner, pop a hamburger into the pig’s mouth and push down on his head. The more they pump, the more his belly grows until . . . pop!

Kids love the suspense as they watch his belly grow; the player who makes his belly burst loses the game. Children can quickly reset this pig game with one pump of the pig’s head and experience consistent belly busting game-play each and every time. Pop the Pig provides hours of fun and is completely kid powered (no batteries needed). For added convenience, all pieces can be stored inside the pig. Kids won’t see a pop up pirate, but they will get to pop a pig. For ages 4 and up, 2-6 players. From the makers of Gooey Louie and Jumping Jack.

Cassandra's review-  So colorful and fun for a quick paced game.  I think anyone would enjoy touching the pig and watching its belly grow.  The game was super easy to learn and the kids had a blast. 

I received complimentary product.
