Book Review/Giveaway: Gigi and her Girl. Ends June 13th.
Gigi and her Girl written and illustrated by Kathy Brandt
About the Book: A wildly popular picture book with fun illustrations and rhyming text. Easy for new readers! Told from both the child’s and the dog’s point of view, children laugh out loud at the contrast. When the patient puppy prefers to sleep with the more respectful, less smothering bigger sister, the spicy little sister needs to change her ways . . . maybe. Sweet, whimsical, and very funny! GIGI AND HER GIRL is a favorite of children and parents alike. http://www.gigiandhergirl.com/index.html
My Review: This book is so true and very, very funny but with a message for dog owners. I love it. The story is about a young girl and her dog Gigi. Each has a different point of view regards to fun. The little girl thinks Gigi likes to watch her tumble and twirl but Gigi wishes she was outside chasing squirrel.
Girl: We glide down the slide and then ride the swing!
Gigi the Dog: Really? The swing? It’s just not my thing.
So why the girl thinks her dog loves to play dress up, ride in a basket with her toys, try to get her to play the piano and more, the dog just doesn’t see it her way. She will like to play outside, sleep and eat. It was time for Gigi to make her escape for the day, so she walked off to be with the girl’s big sister who lets her be a dog. Will the little girl be able to learn her lesson and treat Gigi the way she should be treated?
This is a great message for young children. It will help them to understand how to treat their pets from their (animal) point of view. I highly recommend this book.

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
