Children’s Book Give Away

We’ve found a gifted writer of children’s books and wanted to share her site with our readers. Yolanda Cullagh, wife, mother of four, grandmother, and author, has written the Dragonfly Dreams Series of children’s books. Dragonflies are everywhere. They are in her books, and on her tee shirts and jewelry. They are adorable. Her first book is Sebastian the Dragonfly (shown). Sebastian is a beautiful bluish-green color. He loves to wind-surf and go on safaris. I fell in love with him. Her second book is Sabina. Sabina is a Beach Fly who loves to build sand castles.

Because I fell in love with Sabastian we chose to review that book, and found it to be quite delightful. It’s the perfect bedtime story for any little boy or girl. I was particularly impressed with the hardback cover on the book and the brilliant colors. It is beautifully illustrated as well. In addition to the books, Yolanda has adorable screen print shirts of Sebastian and Sabina. The books and tees would make a great gift set.

Yolanda has offered a signed copy of Sebastian the Dragonfly to our readers. You could be the winner of this unique book. Here’s how: visit Cwingbooks and leave us a comment on Yolanda’s site. You may earn extra entries by:

Children’s Books Give Away

Giggles & Sugar Kisses was given the opportunity to review several groups of books by Kumon Publishing Company. Kumon focuses on basic learning skills for childen aged 2 through 6. They cover everything from the alphabet, reading, counting, tracing, basic addition and subtraction to scissor skills.

Kumon’s workbooks are unique. They use a step by step approach, so children can master one skill before moving to another. Their learning system was developed in Japan by Toru Kumon 50 years ago. Mr. Kumon wanted his son to do better in school, so he developed workbooks to help his son. By the sixth grade, his son could do calculus. His techniques have been proven. Kumon currently has learning centers in 44 contries.
