Summer Reading - Dinosaur Kisses . . . I'm Giving One Away!

I am so happy to share with you a new book from Candlewick Press; Dinosaur Kisses which releases on August 6, 2013 - and I will be giving one away! I received this book for review yesterday and laughed my way through it! I read it to my husband and daughter and they laughed all the way through it as well! I can't wait to read it to Josiah and Caleb on our Four Days of Fun and I'm sure this is a book which is absolutely sure to be a favorite of children, parents and grandparents!

Dinosaur Kisses
By - David Ezra Stein
Publisher - Candlewick Press
Ages - 2-5

Favorite Features -
  • Hilarious story about a newly hatched dinosaur who loves to Stomp, Chomp and Whomp and wants to find something to kiss!!!
  • Colorful, fun illustrations
  • Gives families a fun opportunity to talk about being gentle . . . since we have a new baby about to make his arrival, this book will be a great tool to remind Josiah he will need to be gentle with his new baby brother Shane and to teach Caleb about being gentle . . . definitely something a two-year old needs to learn!
You will be laughing as you read about little Dinah's struggle to learn to kiss . . . it is NOT the same as Stomping, Chomping or Whomping!!!! As Candlewick Press says, "When Dinah hatches out of her egg, there is so much to see and do! First she STOMPS! Then she CHOMPS! Then she sees a kiss and wants to try that next. But each time she tries to kiss someone new, she ends up whomping, stomping or chomping them instead. WHOOPS!!!" Can you see why we laughed our way through Dinosaur Kisses???!!! :-) Definitely add Dinosaur Kisses to your Summer reading list!!!

I am so happy to say not only did Candlewick Press send a Dinosaur Kisses book for me to review, but they are making another available for me to give away (USA only)!!! If you are 18+ you can enter the drawing for this give-away, which will be on August 2nd in honor of Shane's due date, by commenting below to let me know if you have followed on Google+, 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.
