Book Review/Giveaway: Battle of the Grandmas. Ends June 25th
Battle of the Grandmas by Anthonette Klinkerman, illustrated by Justin Acquavella
About the Book: One little girl, three grandmas! Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? Well, three times the presents from Grandma, Granny, and NaNa (the real ones pictured at left) isn’t as wonderful as most grandkids would think in this humorous tale. Based on a true story, find out what happens when gift-giving becomes a battle!
My Review: When a little girl received three packages from her grandmas, it turns out they all sent her the same book. But they each wanted their gifts to be different and the best. So each grandma set out to out do each other by sending their grand daughter the best gifts they can find. Soon packages from each of them started to pile up in the girl’s house, from toys, music boxes, flowers to goodies and more. Even the postman was getting exhausted.
Finally, the little girl have had it, all she wanted was for her grandmas to spend time with her. Take her to the park, spend time with her reading a book or doing silly things to make her laugh and smile. All she wanted was hugs and kisses from those she loves.
I wish kids would think like this little girl. But society has changed all that because a lot of grandmas are guilty of trying to buy the love of their grandchild with gifts, and trying to out do the other grandma. I found this book very educational and that every grandma’s household should have a copy. The illustrations by Justin Acquavella an aspiring independent artist, graphic designer and illustrator help tell and bring the story to life. Pick up a copy today from Amazon.com
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
About the Author: Anthonette Klinkerman is a public school English teacher and public speaker. She teaches English at a night high-school for at-risk teens, and conducts her award-winning mobile etiquette school, Courtesy Bootcamp, for businesses during the days. Battle of the Grandmas was written first, but actually is her second published book. Her first book is titled Courtesy Bootcamp: a not-so-gentle reminder to live by The Golden Rule. Married in 1999, Klinkerman was born in San Diego, California, and moved to Colorado in 2000. Her husband, also a teacher, was raised in Littleton, CO. Their one daughter is working on her art skills daily in preparation for mommy’s next book. The family does their best to keep up the visits with the relatives from in-town to those in California over breaks from school. When she is not speaking, writing, or grading papers, Klinkerman enjoys reading, golfing, hiking, and skiing, and exploring the restaurant scene to satisfy her inner “foodie”.

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.
