Magnolia Mudd and the Super Jumptastic Launcher Deluxe - I'm Giving One Away on January 20, 2018

I was recently invited to review a fun new book from Sterling Children's Books, so today I'm happy to let you know all about Magnolia Mudd and the Super Jumptastic Launcher Deluxe!

Magnolia Mudd and the Super Jumptastic Launcher Deluxe 
Author - Katey Howes
Illustrator - Valerio Fabbretti 
Publisher - Sterling Children's Books
Ages - 3+

Favorite Features -
  • Fun illustrations
  • Story encourages problem solving and embracing change in our lives - in a fun and silly way.
Sterling Children's Books says; "Meet Magnolia Mudd: an inventive girl who’d rather tighten a nut and a bolt than tie a ribbon or bow. For Magnolia Mudd, her Uncle Jamie is the very best grown-up. He always invents cool things with her . . . until the day he and Miss Emily announce their engagement. That’s bad enough—but even worse, Miss Emily wants Magnolia to be a FLOWER GIRL! No way is Magnolia tossing petals. But it turns out Uncle Jamie’s new bride-to-be may be more fun than Magnolia ever imagined . . ."

I like how Magnolia Mudd and the Super Jumptastic Launcher Deluxe shows a girl who enjoys science and who thinks of a creative solution to her "problem". While I do not have any granddaughters, these are skills I want my grandsons to learn as well.

I'm very happy to say, not only did Sterling Children's Books send me one copy of Magnolia Mudd and the Super Jumptastic Launcher Deluxe for me to review, but they are making another available for me to give away (USA only). If you are over the age of 18, live in the USA and would like to enter this drawing for Magnolia Mudd and the Super Jumptastic Launcher Deluxe which will be on January 20, 2018,  please comment below to share how your grandchildren tend to solve challenges - my grandsons are diplomats and they often come up with additional possibilities . . . often excellent ones!

In addition 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 or at this link (not just liking the post) and/or have followed grandma's cookie jar by email you will receive one entry for each of these which you have done. Plus, if you "share" this post, you'll receive another entry (please let me know if you share). This will help me be able to draw names from among people who would like to win Magnolia Mudd and the Super Jumptastic Launcher Deluxe 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!
