Max and Bird - A Friendship Book

Now that my daughter is learning to read I'm on the lookout for fun easy reading books that she can learn from. We received an advance copy of Max and Bird, by Ed Vere. Madeline, who is five, has been excited about reading. Now she gets to hold the book and try and sound out the words. The story is great for kids of all ages. It shows what friendship means and also what persistence to reach a common goal can lead to. Madeline has chosen to read this book for the past two weeks almost every day. She says she really likes that Max and Bird has some really nice illustrations. I think they are pretty cool too. Check out the book and tell us what you think. By the way my favorite part is when Max makes a pros and cons list. Now Madeline wants to make her own lists too.

Olivia's Messy Alphabet Book - A Personalized Book From Put Me In The Story

Olivia's Messy Alphabet Book!
I received a free book product in order to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.

I really love that my girls are really into books. And after receiving a personalized copy of Sesame Street: The Messy Alphabet Book for Olivia, I knew it was only a matter of time before Madeline would be asking for one of her own. We’ll see which book I surprise her with in the near future.

“You know, it seems like every alphabet book I read is full of nice, clean things like cute kittens, cuddly puppies, and shiny new toys. I think it’s time for a new alphabet book, a MESSY alphabet book.” — Oscar the Grouch

Oscar the Grouch is tired of the same old ABCs. They’re too predictable, too perfect, too clean. In his version, your child finds out that G stands for gooey, M stands for mud-coated, and S stands for slimy (yuck!). Your kiddo will have a blast learning their ABCs in this silly, scribbled take on alphabet books.  You know what Oscar? We couldn’t agree more! 

We love this new take on learning about the alphabet, and it really suits my messy little monster Olivia. She’s already finding it fun to learn her alphabet using the fun pictures in the book. What kid would pass up the chance to be silly, really silly? In Sesame Street: The Messy Alphabet Book, a new personalized book available at PutMeInTheStory.com, Oscar the Grouch and his Sesame Street friends teach your child their ABCs by splashing and crashing their way through the alphabet together!

You are able to personalize with your child’s name and photograph. Olivia was excited to find herself in the book. “That’s me”! I was even able to write my own dedication to her.

At the end of the book, your child can decorate their initials using all the tricks they learned from their Sesame Street pals! We're waiting for a day we have spaghetti for dinner. 

And if you enter below your child can get the opportunity to love their own personalized book.

Find Local Savings When You Open Your Valpak Envelope

This is a sponsored post, all opinions are my own.

Do you get a big blue envelope every month, and not look at it? Maybe you should change that and start opening it up. There's lots of savings in the Valpak envelope for you to use each month. In addition to household service and restaurant coupons, Valpak envelopes now contain great grocery savings and coupons for everyday household items.  I know I like clipping my coupons to save money; saving money means I can use it on something fun for the family, like a vacation or a nice dinner. So this month be sure to open it up and find great savings like this great offer: Free $20 gift card with the purchase of $45 Sam’s Club membership.  What would you use your savings on?

Some of the coupons I picked out for myself in the photo below. I like using them to visit our local restaurants. This coming Sunday is Sunday Funday at our house. It's the beginning of the NFL season for our Chicago Bears and we'll be cheering them on with 1/2 off pizza from Salerno's. What kind of coupons or discounts do you look most forward to?
