My Review: Stinkin’ Thinkin’ Stinks: A kid’s guide to the lighter side of life by Bill King is the perfect book to help build self esteem. What is Stinkin’ Thinkin’ Skinks? It is the negative thoughts that stink. Like when all you think about is how bad things are and don’t see the good things happening around you.
The book goes on to explain the difference between a negative thinking and a positive thinking.
For example -: “First, picture the park during a time when someone wasn’t being nice to you. They wouldn’t take turns, they said something mean to you, they made fun of you…..etc How do you feel right now? You probably feel pretty bad. That STINKS! Now try the second part of the experiment. Go back to the same park in your mind. Think about a time when you did something you were really proud of. You jumped out to the swing and landed on your feet, you made the perfect sand castle, or you made friends with another person because you let them go ahead of you in line…” Now you feel much better. So all you have to do is think about good things more.
The book makes us aware of how negative thinking affects lives and how people may be attracted to it without even realizing it. Negative thinking is something we all do and need to work on. This book gives great exercises, fun activities and illustrations to help children learn about defeating negative thoughts and turning it into positive thoughts. To build up their self confidence and self esteem.
Now it’s time to get rid of STINKIN’ THINKIN’ because negative thoughts STINK!

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
