Just As Special by 3Evoke
Publisher: Dog Ear Publishing
Date of publish: February 2015
My Review: Mason felt sad as he watched his friend Nathaniel and his father playing soccer. He wished his father was around so he too can play soccer with him.
His mother explained to him that fathers for many different reasons aren’t around. The book doesn’t say what happened to Mason’s father, but his mother assured him that there are important people in his life like his grandpa that takes him fishing and tells funny jokes, his Uncle Chris and Uncle Keith, who taught him how to play basketball and also his big brother Carter who taught him how to ride a bike and tie his shoes.
Mason knew he was special because he not only has support from his family, but support from his coach, his friend’s father, and teachers.
There are a lot of young boys growing up without their fathers around. But this book can encourage not only young boys but girls too. It will help them discover that there are amazing people in their life that will keep them safe and teach them the value of hard work. Illustrations by Colette Robbins is bold and colorful which helps tell the story. I highly recommend this book for classroom reading and home library.

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
