Book Review & Giveaway: Noah’s Swim-A-Thon by Ann D. Koffsky
Noah loves camp. He loves kickball, and arts and crafts, and singing, and being with his friends. But swimming makes his “arms feel goose-bumpy, his eyes feel stingy, and his nose feel stuffy.” Noah won’t go in the pool, until he learns about the camp swim-a-thon and how he can help other kids enjoy the camp he loves so much. Ann Koffsky’s joyful text and bright illustrations teach young children about the values of tzedakah and perseverance, while sharing the magic of Jewish summer camp. Noah’s Swim-a-Thon is sure to be a hit with both campers and their parents.
This is a story about a boy trying to get pass his fear of swimming. Even with the help of the lifeguard, Noah couldn’t find any good reason for entering the pool. Interesting part is when Noah did over come his fear after he had the opportunity to help contribute to tzedakah so that less fortunate kids could attend camp. It helps encourage children that no matter what they are afraid of they can surely overcome it.
I like the illustration done by the author using bright and bold colors to bring the book to life. Showing how Noah felt about swimming with the stingy,stuffy and bumpy on his body. I recommed this book. For Author’s interview with Mymcbooks click http://mymcbooks.wordpress.com/author-interviews/ Author’s website www.annkoffsky.com

My name is Ella Johnson. I started Mymcbooks to promote reading. As a former teacher, I know that making basic education fundamentals interesting to children can be challenging. Education can be fun, exciting and captivating for children with the right learning tools. So our goal is to “make learning interesting and fun” for the children while they learn by introducing them to fun books with colorful and captivating illustrations.
In 2009, I decided to start the giveaway program giving away free school supplies at random to 2 winners. I also started a monthly free giveaways for books and gifts.
August 2010, I extended the free school supplies from 2 to 5 winners at random on my blog and also give away 20 bags of school supplies to familes in need at Chick-fil-A in Brandon, Florida during their family nights. I intend to continue with this program to help parents. And in 2012, I beat my that number and gave away a lot of school supplies to needy families. Hope I can continue to do the same each year.
In 2011, I started writing reviews on children’s books then giving these books away free on Mymcbooks Blog. I increase the number of books we giveaway free to help support parent. My goal is to give away 500 books a year.
Mymcbooks blog is always looking for ways to give kids free books. So I started Mymcbooks Birthday Library http://mymcbooksbirthdaylibrary.wordpress.com/
My goal for 2012 is to giveaway 300 books to children.
Books Given in 2011: 315
