grandma's bookshelf - Tushes & Tails! - I'm Giving One Away!

"Whose colorful tail feathers are those? Who has a striped rear end? Can you recognize these animal tushes?" These questions are sure to be answered with the new book, Tushes & Tails! I love books with photos of animals and I love books with lift-the-flaps . . . Tushes & Tails! combine the two in an unexpected way . . . or at least from an unexpected "perspective" . . . for a book children - and adults are sure to love! And, I get to give one away!

Tushes & Tails!  
By - Stephane Frattini
Publisher - Sterling Children's Books
Ages - 2+

Favorite Features -
  • full-color photos of 24 animals - from an unexpected "perspective"
  • lift-the-flap fun!
  • info on each animal whose "tush and tail" is shown
  • encourages animal identification, learning about animals and fun!
This book is so much fun! While I was able to identify most of the animals by their tush and/or tail, there were a few which stumped me! I really love the info on each animal . . . and I'm really happy the Okapi were included in this book as they are certainly a fun, unique animal! 

As you enjoy this book with your young grandchildren, be sure to talk with them about all the unique and varied creatures God created! Read Genesis one with them and ask them which animal they like the best, which one they think looks the most bizarre and which one they think was the most fun to create! Give them some paper and crayons and ask them to "create" an animal of their own . . . ask them what they would name it and make up a fun story about their new animal!

As I mentioned above, not only did Sterling Children's Books send me one Tushes & Tails to review, but they are making another available for me to give away! If you would like to be included in this give-away - which will be on September 7, 2012 - please comment below to let me know if you have followed on Google Friend Connect, followed by liking on facebook with the tab in the "Find us on Facebook" box ON THE BLOG (not just liking the post) and/or have followed grandma's cookie jar by email. For each of these which you have done you will receive one entry. In addition, if you "share" this post, you'll receive an additional entry (please let me know if you share). I hope this makes sense! I think this will help me be able to draw names from among people who would like to win this book and it gives you several ways to enter the give-away! Thank you for reading grandma's cookie jar and for sharing it with the people you know!
