That's Not My Reindeer - A Review & Giveaway

Kristie @ Children's Activities with Usborne Books sent my girls a copy of the book, "That's Not My Reindeer".




This is a book of bright colors and textures that are aimed at developing sensory and language awareness.

We received this book yesterday. My 3.5 year old took it right away and read it. She liked to feel the different textures on the pages. Both of my girls are really into books right now and had me read this to them a few times last night.

What is really amazing is that R, my 3.5 year old, can now "read" the book back to us. Something about the textures must make her remember just how the book goes. T, my 2 year old really likes the book too, but it's a fav of R's right now.

Would you like your own copy of "That's Not My Reindeer" to get your kids in the holiday spirit or to save for Christmas? You are in luck because Kristie provided me with a copy to send a lucky reader.

hi Laura! Abby loves to "read" books back to us too. Her teacher said that's the first step in learning to read.

A Christmas Story was the first movie I ever saw in the theater so it has a special place in my heart!

My favorite christmas movie is "It's a wondeful life" I love it when the whole town pours into the house offering their nickles, dimes, and dollars to save a fellow man. I watch it every year. Thanks for conjuring up a good memeory.

My favorite kids' show is "The Year Without a Santa Claus." (I love the heat mizer and cold mizer songs!) My favorite adult Christmas show is "White Christmas" with Bing Crosby. I'd love to win this book for my twins!

My favorite is the original animated Grinch movie. I could watch it every day and never get sick of it. In fact, just thinking about it has the "You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch" song playing in my brain. :)

Our Christmas tradition is the Charlie Brown Christmas show. Not only do I know it by heart, and have been caught saying dialogue along with the characters, but now both sons know it as well. Now we have our new baby grandson to bring into the tradition! Would love to share "That's Not My Reindeer" with him this holiday season! Thanks for sharing ;~)
