Book Spotlight & Giveaway: Arlo, The Blue, Blue Whale. Ends Sept 23rd
About the Story: The “tail” of Arlo the Blue, Blue Whale all started in Akron, Ohio where Janet Alberti raised four children, Danny, Katy, Jenny and Andrea. Many years later, the three sisters co-founded Amelia Street Studio, a creative agency. Not long after, Danny became father to Arlo, a boy, not a whale. For little Arlo’s 1st birthday, Janet wrote the story of Arlo the Whale, inspired by one of Andrea’s posters of Andy Warhol that said, “I think everybody should like everybody” – a universal message that she wanted to teach her first grandson. With help from Jenny, who illustrated all the pages, Janet’s vision came to life and a book was made. The three sisters wanted to share this beautiful story of acceptance and friendship with more children. So, they partnered up with Appoet, a couple of cool guys, to turn the book into something interactive and fun. And ta-da! But wait! This story can’t end without mentioning Curt Alberti, a husband and father who always lived his life embracing other’s differences and taught his children the value of “liking everybody”. http://www.arlothewhale.com
Written by Janet Alberti and Illustrated by Jenny Alberti
Without planning it, our business has been in the works since we were knee-high. While growing up on Amelia Street in Akron, Ohio, we spent hours upon hours creating, crafting, building, and filming. Whether it was sewing clothes for our dolls or producing a mock news show, we have been collaborating as a sister team nearly our whole lives. It wasn’t intentional that our individual career paths would complement each other so perfectly, but we are pretty happy they do. http://www.ameliastreetstudio.com/about-us.html

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
Books Given in 2015: – 127
