Big Book for Dads Give Away

It’s no secret that Dads are usually left out of celebrations such as baby showers or just the experience of having a new baby. Mom gets the attention initially and than baby. Dads linger in the background, waiting patiently to take on his new role.  He endures mom’s mid-night cravings and mood swings as she gains the attention of family, friends and strangers alike.

I remember my son-in-law enduring the attention that my daughter was getting when she was carrying my grandson. He was so loving and willing to take the back seat. He did ask for a stroller and car seat of his own when the baby was born. He didn’t want to worry about taking the car seat of his truck once it was installed and he wanted to have his own stroller for leisurely walks in the morning or evenings. He is a great father and spends hours with his son playing, reading, giving him a bath, doing everything a father loves to do with his son.  I am so blessed to have him as my son-in-law.


Giggles & Sugar Kisses came across this Little Big Book for Dads. It’s published by Random House and filled with ideas that will keep father and son or father and daughter busy for hours. It includes activities for making sandcastles, flying kites, ideas for games, and making mac and cheese. It includes stories, Jack and the Bean Stalk, The Boy Who Cried Wolf among others. It is beautifully illustrated and contains a hard back cover. This book retails for $24.95 and is worth every penny.  It’s perfect for the new dad.  It will make a great baby shower or new baby gift.

You can be the winner of this book compliments of Random House. Here’s how: visit the children’s section at Random House and let us know what book besides the give away you would like to have. Leave us a comment and let us know what you found.

Dr. Seuss – Book Give Away

Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham was one of my favorite books when I was child. I remember asking my mother to read it over and over at bedtime. I also remember her being happy when I learned to read and I could read it over and over on my own. Oh the memories of childhood.


I’m not surprised that this book is still a childhood favorite after 49 years. I am amazed that this book consists of only 50 words and was written on a bet. After Dr. Seuss wrote the Cat In The Hat using only 225 words, his publisher wagered $50 that Dr. Seuss could not write a book using only fifty words. He accepted the challenged and thus we have Green Eggs and Ham.


The Cat In the Hat was also one of my favorite childhood books. The Cat In The Hat turned 50 in 2007. This book has sold over 10.5 million copies and has been published in more than 20 languages. I read both of these books to my grandson this week-end. Green Eggs and Ham was his favorite. He handed the book to me over and over. I’ll be adding both to his library, which I started for him at birth.

Thanks to my friends at Random House, Giggles & Sugar Kisses is giving away a set of Dr. Seuss Books to one of our readers. The set includes:

  • Green Eggs & Ham
  • The Cat In The Hat
  • Happy Birthday Baby
  • (2) Dr. Suess-isms

You could be a winner. Here’s how: check out the selection of Dr. Seuss books at Random House and tell us another book that you would like to add to this collection. Readers who do not follow these instructions will have their post rejected.  The requirements apply to everyone. This give away will end July 10, 2009 at mid-night.
