Keepsake that Educates!

Book Review/Giveaway: There’s Just Something About a Boy. Ends Feb 11th

There’s Just Something About a Boy by Jenny Lee Sulpizio and illustrated by Peg Lozier

About the Book: There’s Just Something About a Boy is a children’s keepsake picture book celebrating the special bond between a mother and her newborn son by depicting the love, laughter, and unparalleled adventure that will surely come from raising a little boy.

My Review: This is the second book by the author and what a great read. The author beautifully expresses the bond between a mother and her son. From seeing his image on the sonogram to graduating from school and starting a new future. She tells a story every mother with a son can relate to.

The illustrations by Peg Lozier are beautiful and colorful which helps to bring each pages of the story to life. There’s Just Something About a Boy is a great book to give as a gift to a first time parent.

Pages: 30

  4. My oldest daughter will soon be giving birth to her second son. I would love to add this book to my library, not only for the son she has, but to be able to read this to the next baby when he is a little older.
    It’s so amazing to be having this different perspective on parenting than when I was having my own children! Now I have the time to sit down with my grandchildren and enjoy a book. I just love the new selection of children’s books I have been seeing lately! This one in particular would be perfect for all of the new babies that have been coming into my life lately.

  6. I am one of five girls, my mom always wanted a boy. Finally after 25 years of waiting my sister had a beautiful son, who will be two in February, I would love to give this book to her to share with her wonderful little boy.

  7. I have two wonderful sons and I have often spoke of the bond between
    a mother and her sons…I often saw that bond between my mom and my
    brother. It is very special!
    Many thanks, Cindi

My brother passed away a few years ago and the pain I saw my mom go through was unbearing, I can’t imagine not having my boys around. I am glad you are having this book for the giveaway, it touches so many of us moms !!
