Candlewick Books Review & Giveaway

Press Sample

We try to read at least two books each night before the kids go to bed, so we are always excited when we find some great new books to add to our reading rotation.  Thanks to Candlewick, we definitely have some great books to add!

Mitchell Goes Bowling

Mitchell and his dad are back in this follow-up to the celebrated Mitchell’s License. Mitchell can’t wait to go to the bowling alley with Dad – after all, he loves knocking things over! But Mitchell soon learns about the gutter, and Dad gets a big X on the scoreboard. Will he ever manage to do the same?

There, There

Little Hansie the bear loves to play pretend, and too often he gets himself in all sorts of trouble. A hurt knee, sand in his eyes, a bump on the head –but Dad knows just what to do. A big hug and a “there, there”, and everything is alright again. So when Dad hurts his foot on a thorn, Hansie bear knows just what to say! Written by the acclaimed author of Guess How Much I Love You, this cozy book celebrates the bond between father and child.

My take:  We have read both of these authors before and my boys still rank Mitchell Goes Driving as one of their top 10 favorite books of all times.  Guess How Much I Love You is a top 5 in my eyes so we all were excited to read these books.

The boys got quite the kick out of reading Mitchell Goes Bowling and laughed at all of Mitchell’s reactions.  I love the message of teamwork and love that is found throughout the book.

There, There is such a sweet book that is so perfect.  It shows how deep a father’s love is and how that love is passed on through Hansie the bear.

Candlewick Press is generously offering 1 lucky winner both books….Mitchell Goes Bowling and There, There!
