Book Review/Giveaway: My Cape Cod Magic. Ends Jan 9th, 2013

My Cape Cod Magic

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.

  6. We live near the Texas coast, so we get to experience the beach often. This book would be a great teaching tool in writing and in recognizing rhyming words. The use of the descriptive words will help them understand how to make their own writing more interesting. Thank you for the opportunity!

  7. I lived in Massachusetts for a few years as a child and when relatives would visit we would take them to Cape Cod. I haven’t been back since but this would be a nice way to reminisce and share a part of my childhood with my grandkids.
