Birthday Month Giveaway on May 27, 2017 - Caring For Your Lion

I was recently invited by Sterling Children's Books to review a new title they were releasing . . . Caring for Your Lion. It looked and sounded cute, so I said, "Yes!". It arrived yesterday, when my three-year old grandson was hear and we ended up reading it about five times . . . in a row . . . with a great deal of laughing from my grandson! I'm very happy to share this book with you today!

Sterling Children's Books says; "What happens when you expect an itty-bitty kitty . . . but get a lion instead? It’s kitten delivery day, but SURPRISE. Congratulations on your new LION! We know you ordered a kitten, but we ran out of those. Fortunately, the big cat comes with instructions—like, try very hard NOT to look like a zebra. Or a gazelle. And give your lion PLENTY of space to play. But soon the feathers and fur start flying and everything’s in chaos. Is there any way a lion could actually be a child’s purr-fect pet? "

I had so much fun reading this book to my grandson . . . and then he and his brothers when they arrived after school for a sleep-over! This is the perfect book for grandma's house - lots of laughing, snuggling and fun!

I'm extremely happy to say, not only did Sterling Children's Books send me one copy of Caring for Your Lion to review, but they are making another available for me to give away (USA only). If you are over the age of 18 and would like to enter this drawing - which will be on May 272017, please comment below to tell me what type of "unusual" animal you - or your grandchildren - might like for a pet. For my eight-year old grandson, it would be a full-sized gorilla and my five-year old grandson would like a giant bear!
