Keepsake that Educates!

About

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.

  4. I love this!!! I have two small boys, one in preschool and the other not quite. We have always read to them quite a bit, and they really enjoy it. Even my 20 month old will not go down for a nap or bed at night without having at least 3 books read to him. Its a really special time, and I love it when he finishes the sentences! My 4 year old can recite some of his books from memory. Its too cute. I look forward to reading more!

  5. Hi Ella – thank you so much for the welcome. I’m a mom to three boys, my youngest is going to kindergarten this year and doesn’t have much interest in going. we have a couple of weeks before we begin in virginia. I was thrilled to see the book “the night before kindergarten” i can’t wait to pick it up. I’m always looking for books for my older boys to read as well (ages 14 and 10). I’ll be sure to check back to your blog often.

  8. Hi Ella,

    Thanks for your note. I visited your site and am wondering if you’d like to exchange links, so we can feature each other’s sites on our blogs.

    Look forward to hearing from you.

    Thanks,
    Pam

  9. hey Ella – I’ve emailed Jacob Morris about forwarding the file for My Sparkling Misfortune to you to do a review on the book. I’m sure he’ll go for it, but I wanted to ask first. You’ll love the book and it’s available on Amazon so you can add it to your bookstore if you’d like. (I did)

    I’d like to do more of a bookstore on my blog this winter (after the holidays), kind of like you do. So, I may be contacting you later to bounce some ideas off you. I’d like to stay with the commercial free aspect and focus on kids who are reading already.

    Thanks! Tina

  11. Hi Ella, I don’t have your email anymore due to my friend “The Hacker” and also I got laid off on Friday. I was contacted by Debbie Lykins
    Side Door Communications about doing a blog tour and I thought you might be interested, so I forwarded her your blog address. She may be approaching you.
