Book Review/Giveaway: The Little Leaf. Ends April 12th
The Little Leaf by Adam B. Shaeffer and illustrated by Turbo Qualls
About the Book: A little leaf wants to grow larger but needs help along the way. This children’s picture book contains an important lesson told in a manner that children will love and understand–growing up isn’t easy but you don’t have to do it on your own.
My Review: A small leaf attached to a branch of an ancient and mighty tree wanted so much to be like his brothers and sisters; he just wanted to grow big. One day he decided to ask the spider why he wasn’t growing, the Spider said, you just need to try harder. So he tried by stretching and expanding but nothing happened. He even drank sap from the branches and waited but still no change. Then he heard a gentle voice saying, “Have you tried leaning into the sunlight? No, the little left said to the sun.
So the little leaf leaned into the sun as far as he could go. After a few months the little leaf notices he was getting bigger. All the leaf had to do was lean and let the sun help him to grow. Like the book said, “growing up isn’t easy but you don’t have to do it on your own.” I highly recommend this book for every household that has a little one growing up.
About the Author: Adam loves reading books, writing books, even smelling books (though digital ones tend to smell of plastic). He and his wife love kids and hope to have a house full of them for years to come.
FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from http://xistpublishing.com/ in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.

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
Books Given in 2013: 330
Books Given in 2014: 257
