Celebrate Reading with New Kids Books from Linda Ragsdale {+A Giveaway}

**Books received for consideration. All thoughts are 100% my own.
At almost four year old, my daughter is learning all about letters.

Of course, she's known her ABCs for quite some time, but is to the point now where she can see a letter and know what they are, and even learning to write them. She's got a long way to go before she'll be reading, but she's getting those fundamentals down.

As a mom, I certainly want to encourage that--- and what better way to do that than with READING together. We love books in our house, so I'm always on the search for great new books to read together. Today, I'm excited to introduce two new books from Flowerpot Children's Press:



ALPHABETTER
Empower your vocabulary with this hilarious dictionary full of playfully re-paired words that motivate, uplift, and inspire. Laugh and learn as you read each new word, and discover the amazing power our words have when we use them to encourage others and ourselves!

 
HOW I DID IT
Curious and inspired, I was full of ideas. I turned adversity into adventure when I took a chance and tried to change. Readers young and old will be inspired by how I did it.

 
About the Author
Linda Ragsdale wants everyone to be a dragon, a Peace Dragon that is! As an author, illustrator, international speaker, and peace teacher, Linda has developed her Peace Dragon series to teach us how to harness our fiery energy into a peaceful and productive outlet by owning our human powers of view, voice, and choice. Linda invites you to be a peace dragon ambassador and join the 30,000 students she has taught around the world!


As you may have guessed from the titles, these are ideal options for every child learning to read. First up- How I Did It. Now, I have to be honest--- I don't know who loved this one more- my daughter or myself!? This was an adorable book! The letters transformed into characters, and let's be honest--- what child doesn't remember ALL of their favorite characters? As I said, my daughter is in this very stage of pre-reading so it was an ideal fit for her. It's entertaining, but still educational--- your kids will have so much fun they won't even realize they are learning.

But it's not just educational either, it has a great moral too! I don't know about you, but I love a book with a message and this one, in all it's fun and silliness serves as a great reminder that kids can be anything they set their minds too... just like I.

Next up, was Alphabetter.

For my daughter, this one wasn't as appealing, but for myself and my 9 year old we thoroughly enjoyed it! With each page we find a brand new word with a definition. These are combinations of other words, meshed together with new meanings. How fun, right? Like I said, at almost 4, my daughter didn't quite appreciate it, but she still loved the illustrations. My son and I were amused by both... and decided there were a few words we might have to add into our vocabulary! It's fun, it's a little silly and it'll encourage kids to think outside the box and have fun with words! As a writer, that's a lesson that I can certainly appreciate.

No matter where your child is in their journey to reading, these books are going to be a HIT! We loved them! You can find these selections and more at the links below:
