grandma's bookshelf - Little Bear's Baby Brother - I'm Giving One Away!

A couple months ago I shared wonderful news with you all . . . there will be a new grandbaby boy at my house in August!!!! WooHoo! Josiah and Caleb are looking forward to their new brother - Josiah thinks he should be named, "Groovy"! Not sure where that came from! :-) At any rate, since a new baby is on the way, when I saw the book, Little Bear's Baby Brother, I had to review it!

Little Bear's Baby Brother 
Author - Mary Packard
Illustrator - Lisa McCue
Publisher - Sterling Children's Books
Ages - 4-7

Favorite Features -
  • Cute, colorful illustrations - I love the animals in this book and so will children!
  • Simple, sweet story about Little Bear and what she does to get ready for the arrival of a new baby in her family
  • Provides opportunities to talk with children about what happens when a new baby is on their way to join their family
Little Bear's Baby Brother is a delightful book children are sure to love as it is the perfect book to give your grandchild when he/she waits for the arrival of a new baby in their family! Not only does Little Bear think of something she can do for her new baby while she waits for the baby to arrive, but when the baby does arrive she also "marvels at the baby's size. The baby's little paws were just like her own, only so much tinier"

I'm delighted to say not only did Sterling Children's Books send me one Little Bear's Baby Brother to review, but they are making another available for me to give away (USA only)! If you'd like to be in the drawing for this book, which will be on March 18, 2013,  please comment 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.
