Book Review/Giveaway: My Cape Cod Magic. Ends Jan 9th, 2013
My Cape Cod Magic By J Bean and Chris Palmer and illustrated by Jenny Kelley
About the Book: “When I close my eyes, what comes into view is the magic of Cape Cod that I share with you.”
My Review: This book not only engages the reader about the beautiful culture of Cape Cod but introduces children to a vast vocabulary of rhyming words. For example “Boardwalks to beaches and kites in the sky, Salt water taffy, blue herons that fly.” Or “Sea, shore, waves and boats, Makes me wonder – can I float?” Share the beauty of nature in Cape Cod with your child.
The illustrations by Jenny Kelley help to tell the story of Cape Cod.
A portion of the proceeds of this book goes to the Cape CodCulturalCenter for educational programs for children! This book is a great way to share the beauty of nature with your child. My kids love this book as do I!

About the Author: J Bean Palmer has an abiding appreciation of the natural beauty and treasures of New England. And with a degree in Environmental Science, she weaves a message of care for the environment in her high spirited ElsBeth, the Little Cape Cod Witch stories.
Her own adventures flying small planes, canoeing and hiking in the rugged western mountains of Maine and along the stunning seascapes and quaint villages of Cape Cod serve as ample inspiration for her ElsBeth series.
The author also calls upon her family’s long history in New England, including that of a Revolutionary “Green Mountain Boy”, Cape Cod cranberry farmers and artists, and an oft-told family legend that as her grandmother’s ancestors stepped off the Mayflower, her grandfather’s relatives were there to greet them.
FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.

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 my 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 start the giveaway program giving away free school supplies at random to 2 winners each year. 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 full of school supplies to familes in need at Chick-fil-A in Brandon, Florida during their family nights. And in 2012, I beat my that number and gave away a lot of school supplies to needy families. Hopefully, I can continue to do this 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 as many as I can each year. This is also a great way to introduce parents to new books.
Mymcbooks blog is always looking for other ways to give kids free books. So I started Mymcbooks Birthday Library http://mymcbooksbirthdaylibrary.wordpress.com/
My goal is to giveaway at least 300 books to children each year.
Books Given in 2011: 315
