Book Review Tour/Giveaway: The Zebra Said Shhh! Ends March 22nd.
The Zebra Said Shhh written by M.R. Nelson and illustrated by Tamia Sheldon
About the Book: An exhausted zebra is ready for bed but the other animals at the zoo still want to play. Help the Zebra say “Shhh” to the lions, elephants and other noisy animals at the zoo. A calming bedtime book for little monkeys everywhere.
My Review: It was bedtime, time for the animals at the zoo to go to bed. As the Zebra was getting ready for bed he notices it wasn’t quiet. The animals were not sleeping but talking. The Zebra was very tired and could not go to sleep because of the noise. So the Zebra said, Shhh, to the monkey, to the lion, to the parrot, to seals, to the rhinoceros and the other animals, it’s time to go to sleep. But they did not want to go to sleep. Then all of a sudden it was quiet at the zoo.
Interesting bedtime story for children but I felt like a page was missing. A page that should have told us what suddenly made the noisy animals stop making noise. Story illustrated by Tamia Sheldon.

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
Books Given in 2012: 380
