Book Review/Giveaway: Wild Rose’s Weaving. Ends Jan 29th
Wild Rose’s Weaving by Ginger Churchill and illustrated by Nicole Wong.
About the Book: Rose’s grandmother wants to teach Rose how to weave, but Rose is enjoying the beautiful day outside far too much to come in and learn. It is not until Grandma shows Rose how she has woven the elements of nature into her rug, that Rose wants to create a rug of her own. But now Grandma has spied a rainbow. Hand in hand, she and Rose head outside, and the next day, that rainbow reappears in Rosie’s own rug. http://gingerchurchill.com/
My Review: When Grandma called out to Rose Wild to come learn how to weave, Wild Rose said she was too busy and ran out of the house. She spooked the sheep, saw the lightning flash, and splashed in the tiny rivers. “This is so much better than weaving she thought.”
Even though her grandma asks her again and again to come and learn how to weave, Wild Rose would rather play than learn how to weave. When Wild Rose finally came in and saw that her grandma has finished the rug, she saw life in its colors.
This is an interesting story about a grandparent wanting to pass on a generational skill to her grandchild. The illustrations by Nicole Wong are beautifully with the use of soft pastels to bring the story to life.

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
Books Given in 2012: 380
Book Given in 2013:
Memorable Children Books & Gifts is also in the business of supporting other small businesses.
