The Alphabet Kids books of Allegra, Elena, Isaac, Oni, Umar and Yang, a group of children having fun while learning about the diverse aspects of their multicultural backgrounds. The stories are intended to help children love who they are, and realize that people who are different can be very good friends, plus other life lessons and interesting facts. http://www.alphabetkids.com/
About the Book: Are you curious about the world around us? Come along on a fun-filled visit to discover the secrets of the Universe in the The Alphabet Kids Go to the Planetarium. You’ll meet Dr. Blake, and astronomer, and explore the mysteries of our Solar System, space travel, and much more!
My Review: Allegra, Elena, Isaac, Oni, Umar and Yang call themselves ‘The Alphabet Kids’ because they like to hang out at the Alphabet Afterschool Center where they learn something new everyday.
The kids take a field trip to the planetarium where they learnt about the secrets of the Universe space and explore the mysteries of the Solar System and the planets. They are guided by an astronomer, named Dr. Blake who explained about the eight planets in the solar system as Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. He taught the kids a great way to remember the planets in their order by saying ‘My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Noodles’.
This is a great and simple way for kids to learn about our planets and Solar System. The last page of the book has 6 fun facts about space. I highly recommend this book for classroom teaching.

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.
