Glimmer Girls London Art Chase & A Dolphin Wish

London Art Chase
By Natalie Grant 
Published by Zondervan

In London Art Chase, the first title in the new Faithgirlz Glimmer Girls series, readers meet 10-year-old twins Mia and Maddie and their adorable little sister, LuLu. All the girls are smart, sassy, and unique in their own way, each with a special little something that adds to great family adventures.

There is pure excitement in the family as the group heads to London for the first time to watch mom, famous singer Gloria Glimmer, perform. But on a day trip to the National Gallery, Maddie witnesses what she believes to be an art theft and takes her sisters and their beloved and wacky nanny Miss Julia, on a wild and crazy adventure as they follow the supposed thief to his lair. Will the Glimmer Girls save the day? And will Maddie find what makes her shine?

A Dolphin Wish
By Natalie Grant 
Published by Zondervan

Join twins Mia and Maddie and their sidekick little sister, LuLu, as they travel the country finding adventure, mystery, and sometimes mischief along the way. Together with their famous mother, singer Gloria Glimmer, and their slightly wacky nanny Miss Twist, the sisters learn lessons about being good friends, telling the truth, and a whole lot more.

In A Dolphin Wish a three-night stop in the city of San Diego seems like it might be just the break the girls need—lovely weather and great sights to see. That is until they hear animal handlers at “Watery World” talking about the trouble they’ve been having keeping the animals in their habitats. Mia and her sisters cannot resist a challenge and they talk Miss Twist into another visit to the educational amusement park to search for clues as to what or who is helping the animals escape.

Hailee is a big fan of FaithGirlz books and these two just happened to come at a time she needed something to read. She was excited to read these and finished them in one day. The twins are 10 yrs old so this is a perfect age range book for her. Its an 8-12 yr old age level.

The books both have a mystery that the twins need to solve. The first book they travel to London, the second California.

She cant wait to read the third book in the series The Miracle in Music City.

DANIEL TIGER'S NEIGHBORHOOD: WOULD YOU BE MINE?" and "WORDWORLD: BE MY VALENTINE

My baby boy just loves holidays, he just turned 3 and is starting to understand them, Of course he is always saying Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday on random days but he tries.

We were sent two new releases from PBS Kids in time for Valentines Day. While the big kids are celebrating at school with homemade boxes and cards he can watch Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood: Would You Be Mine and Wordworld: Be My Valentine.

Braxtons new obsession is what he calls "numbers" but are really letters so he really loves learning letter sounds on Word World. He loves when they play rocket ships on Daniel Tiger. Both of these shows are wonderful for kids ages 2 and up. I love my baby boy is learning while he thinks he is just watching a show.
You can purchase these DVD's and many other great items at shop.pbskids.org/




“DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD: WOULD YOU BE MINE?”
“WOULD YOU BE MINE?” features eight stories including “It’s Love Day!” and “Daniel’s Love Day Surprise.” In “It’s Love Day,” Daniel makes special heart cards to bring to school and hand out. While at school, some of the kids explain how they like to say “I love you” to their friends and family – Prince Wednesday likes to sing, and Miss Elaina likes to give hugs. In the story “Daniel’s Love Day Surprise,” Daniel helps his mom make a special heart-shaped pizza and finds a way to show Grandp√®re how much he loves him by setting up a special treasure hunt just for him featuring sparkling purple hearts.

The other stories included on this DVD are “Daniel and Miss Elaina Play Rocketship,” “Daniel Plays at the Castle,” “Friends Help Each Other,” “Daniel Helps O Tell a Story,”

“Margaret’s First Chime Time,” and “Tiger Family Fun.” One of the key ingredients that sets this series apart is its groundbreaking use of catchy musical strategies grounded in Fred Rogers’ landmark social-emotional curriculum that reinforce each theme and that preschoolers and parents both sing – and use – together in their daily lives. Some of the strategies kids will learn from the stories on this DVD include “find your own way to say, I love you” and “friends help each other, yes they do, it’s true.”


“WORDWORLD: BE MY VALENTINE”
This new DVD includes five stories, two of which are Valentine’s Day themed. “My Fuzzy Valentine” features Sheep working to create a valentine song for her best friend Bear. Unfortunately she has trouble finding just the right rhyme to finish her song. With help from Fly, she uncovers the perfect rhyme and makes Bear a valentine with real heart. In “Love, Bug,” Bug wants to sign a valentine for his favorite WordFriend, but doesn’t know how to write his name. With lots of encouragement from Frog he learns that with a little practice he can write his name and give his valentine.

In addition to these two great stories, this DVD also includes “Sh-Sh-Shark,” “Princess Sheep” and “There’s an Ant in Every Giant.” WORDWORLD demonstrates the connections between letters, sounds, words, and meaning in order to empower children to advance from learning letters to learning how to read. Some of the words kids will learn by watching this DVD include heart, bug, shoe and crown.

My baby turned 3

My sweet baby boy turned 3 on the 17th. Its been a tough road with him and learning about his sensory issues and others but he is the sweetest little boy and I wouldn't trade him for the world. He has made me the happiest mom ever! He is my baby no matter how old he may be. His face just lights up my days even when I feel like I need to run away hes right there making me smile.

He wanted a rainbow cake for his birthday and he got it! He tried so hard to blow those candles out!

Happy Birthday sweet baby boy!

All Aboard the Ark

Sun is high. Rain is coming.

God whistles. We come running.


All Aboard the Ark pairs simple rhyming text with charming watercolor illustrations in this delightful board book. Perfect for bedtime or any time, this sweet story is told from the point of view of the animals who board the ark.

My baby boy is still loving reading books, although he just turned 3 and cant read he loves looking at the pages. The story is a really cute rhyming story from the animals view. Its very cute and is a good bedtime book. Braxton loves the animals.

The pictures are really cute and the story teaches kids about Noahs Ark and how the animals were cared for. Braxtons favorite is the rainbow at the end! I love the pastel colors in the book, its not like most books. Although the colors arent exactly what the animals should be its still really cute and makes it fun!
