Free Birthday Perks for Kids

Thursday, October 19, 2017

We love birthday freebies and perks. There are several companies that offer perks for kids' birthdays. Here are some of my favorites:

  1. Toys R Us: This year my son received a coupon for $3 off his purchase of $3 or more and a Lego birthday toy. With his $3 off coupon, he picked out three Hot Wheels Race Tracks that were on sale. I ended up spending .09 out of pocket. The Lego Birthday toy has a Lego figure, cake and present. The program is fun for kids! To learn more and to sign up for the birthday club program, click here.
  2. Baskin Robbins: Baskin Robbins will send via email a coupon for a free scoop of ice cream. Click here for more details.
  3. JcPenney Portraits: JcPenney sends a high value coupon if your children are a members of the birthday club. Last year (and this year) we got a $15 off purchase that we applied to our yearly portraits. Since I am also a member and we only get 3 standard print sheets, I usually don't pay anything out of pocket. To learn more, click here.
  4.  Littlest Prince Couture: The Littlest Prince also has a birthday club. Members can get a code for a free tie on their birthday (but you still need to pay shipping). To learn more, click here.

All That Makes Life Bright: The Life and Love of Harriet Beecher Stowe Review

Wednesday, October 18, 2017

Harriet Beecher marries Calvin Stowe. Harriet's sister, Catharine, warns Harriet that she will lose her identity and her chance to pursue writing opportunities. Harriet is determined and believes Calvin will support her. Right before Calvin leaves on a trip to Europe, Harriet discovers she is pregnant. Her life becomes harder and filled with many unexpected challenges. When Calvin returns from Europe, she realizes that his expectations in life are different from hers. Harriet struggles to find her identity as a wife, mother and a writer as she realizes that Cavin is still in love with his first wife. Can Calvin and Harriet set aside their differences and find love?

All That Makes Life Bright: The Life and Love of Harriet Beecher Stowe by Josi Kilpack is not a common love story. Harriet and Calvin marry in the beginning of the story and much of the book is about the struggles within their marriage and the different expectations they each have. I love the characterization of Harriet and it seems like most women can identify with trying to find their place within the expectations of different roles. The bedroom scenes were a little too descriptive for my tastes. The historical background was interesting and the story kept my attention. To learn more, click here.

Halloween Book Recommendations for Kids

Tuesday, October 17, 2017

Halloween is coming up fast! We love celebrating holidays by reading children's books. Here are some of our favorites for Halloween:




Corduroy's Best Halloween Ever!
My daughter loves the Corduroy books. The illustrations and the stories are cute, easy to understand and fun for little kids. This book also shares an example of being kind to your friends.



Click, Clack, Boo!: A Tricky Treat (A Click, Clack Book)
We are huge fans of Doreen Cronin's "Click, Clack" books or what we call at home, "Duck" books. Everyone on the farm is excited for Halloween except Farmer Brown.


 
It's Pumpkin Day, Mouse!
Mouse is getting ready for Halloween by decorating pumpkins. The illustrations are fun, the text is easy for kids to understand and introduces how to recognize emotions based on expressions.


 
One Halloween Night
Anything can happen on Halloween night, right? In One Halloween Night, a group of friends discover the magic within a Halloween night. This book is cleverly written and a fun story to read in preparation for Halloween.



Little Boo
A little pumpkin seed is not big enough to scare anyone. The wind advises him to wait. As the little seed waits he grows and becomes a pumpkin! Little Boo goes through the life cycle of a pumpkin. It's a cute and fun book to read in preparation for Halloween.

What are some of your favorite Halloween stories?

Wrong for You Review

Thursday, October 12, 2017

Lane Bishop moves to Chapel Hill, North Carolina for a job. Shortly after she arrives, a bunch of girls drag her out to watch a soccer game. Lane isn't content on sitting on the sidelines and catches the eye of the "undateable and unattainable" Jamie. Jamie needs all the help he can get to win over Lane. He relies on the advice of his brother, Simon. Simon's advice helps Jamie seem like the "perfect" guy for Lane. As she gets to know both brothers, Lane begins to wonder if she's dating the right guy?

Wrong for You by Jenny Proctor contained a lot of drama between the characters. Some of the story seemed a little unrealistic and the drama a little far-flung, but I think it's just supposed to be a fun story. The ideal age to read this book is teen - young adult. It's a fast, clean and fun read. Each of the characters had their own unique personality and traits. The characters drove the plot within their own drama and conflicts. To learn more about Wrong for You, click here.

The AvoSeedo avocado tree germinator bowl makes it easy for everyone to grow their own plant at home from an avocado pit. The germinator bowl (made for durability from recyclable, non-toxic materials) is designed to keep an avocado pit immersed in just the right amount of water to grow effectively. You can also reuse the germinator bowl for other vegetables like lettuce, celery and carrot tops!

This would be a great fun family experiment! It will also help kids to make interconnections with nature and demonstrate how plants grow. 

AvoSeedo is offering my readers a special 20% off discount and free shipping when you use the code "sp20." Browse their shop today, by clicking here.

We received this book in the mail yesterday and I have already read it several times to my children. They love it and keep asking me to read it again and again. This book is amazing! God's Great Love for You has simple, engaging text for young children. It's not wordy and easy for young children to understand. The illustrations are beautiful and imaginative. The illustrations are so beautiful that they could easily be wall art.  I can see this book becoming a classic in Christian homes. It's one of the best Christian books for young children.

Colortime Crafts and Markers Review

Wednesday, October 4, 2017

Colortime Crafts and Markers recently sent us a Glow in the Dark Halloween Tote and three fabric markers to review. My kids enjoyed coloring their tote for trick or treating. The markers were easy for them to use and they enjoyed coloring on something new and different. I liked the idea of them being able to make a trick or treat bag their own. It's something that they can be proud of and can be a keepsake in the years to come. It's also an extremely clever idea for kids to be able to personalize something that they will use and make it their own. I think it will mean something more to them rather than buying something that looks cute or is a finished product.

To learn more about Colortime Crafts and Markers, click here. Colortime Crafts is also offering my readers 15% off. To save 15%, use the code FGH15.


Please note that I did receive this product in exchange for my review. That does not change or influence my opinion.
