Give it Away Friday - Little One Books Review and Giveaway

CLOSED


I'm a book lover.  

My love for books is something I am trying desperately to instill in my children.  So far, it's worked wonders with Little Lou, who reads like a champ!  She's in Kindergarten and reading chapter books at home.  She's amazing.  One way we've encouraged the love for books is by having...well...books!


That's the 8-foot long bookshelf my husband built last summer.  As you can see, the top shelf is totally full of books!  That's not all of them, though.  Not even close.  The top shelf books wrap down onto the second shelf.  There's a bin of leveled readers in Little Lou's room.  There are kids' books in the livingroom and in the car.  They're everywhere!

It doesn't take much to imagine why I fell in love the minute I stumbled across Little One Books!  If you have children, you need to check out this amazing online bookstore. 

Little One Books was created by two grandparents who were overwhelmed with choices when trying to find books for their grandchildren.  There simply wasn't a good "catalog" of books that told them exactly what they'd be getting, what ages books were good for, or why they should choose particular books!  So, they created their own.  And they've done a lovely job!  

I love how each age group (birth-age 5) gets its own category.  Within each age group are subcategories: Bundles, Music, Books, and Video.  Let's pretend you go to the 3 year old category and look at books.  You finally, after much MUCH thought, settle on this book:


as I did.  You'll find that not only does Little One Books give you the vital information about the book: title, author, etc, but they also give a short synopsis.  If you read further, you'll find that for each title on the site, there's a "Why we chose this" summary!  

That's right.  Little One Books doesn't have every book and title you'll find at other big book stores.  There's a reason for that, though.  They want to help you navigate all that chaos!  They want to help you make sure that every time you make a choice from their site...EVERY time...you'll get a book, cd, or video that your children will ask for again and again!  Something educational, perhaps.  Something silly, quite likely.  But something truly worth the time and money you spend.  Something you'll cherish!


Little Ones Books has graciously offered ALL of my readers have been offered the opportunity to get a free Celtic Air cd when you purchase any 2 books from Little One Books!  Simply use the code "celticair" at checkout!

 
 
 In addition, Little One Books has agreed to send one of my lucky readers $15 gift certificate to use on anything on their site!  You'll love cruising the aisles as you try to make your selection!

I follow you on GFC and I had a hard time finding just 1 book. We are readers in our house too and are trying to share that with E. So I would say "Noisy Barn" age 1, any of the llama, llama books, age 3, or "The pout-pout Fish" age 3.
