Book/Author Spotlight. Giveaway: The Whizbang Machine. Ends Dec 5th


28591745

About the Book: After years of running from his tragic past, Jack Yale
books a flight home. With him is a typewriter that is intended to be a gift for his granddaughter, Elizabeth. The minute Elizabeth’s fingers cradle the large black and cream keys the machine responses: popping, sizzling, and roaring to life with a Whiz-Whiz-BANG! Elizabeth quickly discovers the typewriter has powers beyond anything she has ever seen. The more she types, the more the machine spells out guarded secrets that need to be revealed in order to set history straight and remove a curse that has been on their family for centuries. To solve the mystery, Elizabeth Yale, alongside Jack, will have to crack the code of the Whizbang Machine. What they find challenges their most basic assumptions of their family, the history of the typewriter, and even Elizabeth’s father’s death. The ultimate goal is to remove the curse. The question is: will Jack and Elizabeth be able to carry out their mission? http://authordanielleavann.com/books/

Book Review/Giveaway: Hail to the Chief. Ends Oct 31st


28695641

 

Hail to the Chief by author Callista Gingrich, illustrated by Susan Arciero

 

About the Book: Ellis the Elephant is back, and he’s headed to the White House! In Hail to the Chief, the sixth in Callista Gingrich’s New York Times bestselling series, Ellis meets some of America’s greatest presidents and discovers how they have led our country throughout American history.

In preceding books, including Sweet Land of Liberty, Land of the Pilgrims’ Pride, Yankee Doodle Dandy, From Sea to Shining Sea, and Christmas in America, Ellis learns about the pivotal moments that have shaped our nation. Now, in Hail to the Chief, this adorable pachyderm explores the fascinating lives of those who have held the nation’s highest office.

Authored by Callista Gingrich and illustrated by Susan Arciero, Hail to the Chief will delight young and old alike with a glimpse of the leaders who helped make America an exceptional nation. http://ellistheelephant.com/

 

 

 

  • Age Range: 4 – 9 years
  • Grade Level: Preschool – 4
  • Series: Ellis the Elephant
  • Hardcover: 40 pages
  • Publisher: Regnery Kids (October 11, 2016)
  • Cost: $11.51 @ amazon

 

 

My Review: Ellis the Elephant goes back in time to learn about how the past US presidents governed a vast nation. Learning about how George Washington led the Revolutionary War and sworn in as the first president, pledging to serve and defend freedom. Ellis also learn about Thomas Jefferson the founding father who wrote the declaration of independence. James Madison known as the father of the Constitution.  Ellis learned about Andrew Jackson known as a war hero, Abraham Lincoln known as the president who presided over a nation that was in crisis and divided by the fighting over slavery. Theodore Roosevelt who preserved the best lands by setting aside millions of acres of lands.  Ellis went on to learn about many more presidents and their achievements. From George Washington to Barack Obama, he learned how each of them accepted a great responsibility, and done the job to the best of their ability.

What a great way for children and adults to learn about the past and present American presidents and their achievements. The last few pages of the book gives a list of all the US presidents, the year they governed and short history. The illustrations by Susan Arciero are vibrant, bold and colorful which helps sell the story.

Hail to the Chief is a part of the bestselling Ellis the Elephant series.

Author/Book Spotlight. Giveaway: My Pancakes Taste Different Today! Ends Oct 15th


30764934

About the Book: Could a Pancake have the power to shape a child’s view of their world? It was a surprise to Ethan that his favorite breakfast, a stack of steaming hot pancakes, would reveal many ways that nature and people work together. He discovered that everyone has a hand in taking care of nature. Ethan would have never guessed that his simple, innocent act of tossing an oil can into the lake, just to make a big splash for fun, could change his whole wide world. The slippery journey of the oily OOZE leaking from the can, across the lake, down the river to the beaver ponds, and into the fields of grain brought all of Ethan’s friends together. Everyone pitched in to clean up the OOZE from the lake, the fish, and the fields, to get rid of the mess around the lake they all loved. They celebrated with a party and plenty of pancakes.

Book Spotlight & Giveaway: Arlo, The Blue, Blue Whale. Ends Sept 23rd


31acbe41349251-57a24796e7cf1

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

 

sisters

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
