    About the Book

    A surprise on every page!

    Brimming from cover to cover with projects and other paper surprises, The Kids’ Book of Paper Love, from the bestselling editors of Flow magazine and books, is a bounty of a book that begs to be folded, cut up, collaged, doodled on, and shared.

    Loop paper strips into a paper chain. Snip out bookmarks. Fold a paper house. Make photo booth props—a silly mustache, a crown—to pose with friends. Bind up a DIY storybook and use it to sketch out adventures and dreams. Construct a paper flower bouquet, a paper terrarium, a fortune-teller with prompts like Lend someone a book and tell them why you recommend it.

    The Kids’ Book of Paper Love is from the bestselling editors of Flow magazine and books including A Book That Takes Its Time and 50 Ways to Draw Your Beautiful, Ordinary Life. Now Flow enters the children’s section for the first time.  Take a look at the video below to see the book in action!

     

    With this book, kids will enjoy HOURS OF UNPLUGGED FUN and the pleasures of paper.  The Kids’ Book of Paper Love invites children to write, craft, play, and share in a completely screen-free way. Each page throughout the book can be folded, cut up, collaged, doodled on, and shared.  We enjoyed cutting out our own bookmarks, making DIY photo booth props, and making a paper “boredom buster”.  We plan to do the paper chain activity to countdown the days until Christmas this year!  This is such an amazing book that can be enjoyed so many different ways.  Ready for your chance to win a copy?  See the giveaway details listed below.

    A storm is brewing and Little Blue Truck and his good friend Toad are hurrying home for bed. But who can sleep with all that racket?

    Luca’s Bridge/ El puente de Luca by Mariana Llanos+ A Giveaway!

    Disclaimer: Penny Candy Books sent me the book to check out and I’m partnering with author Mariana Llanos for a giveaway!



    Luca’s Bridge by Mariana Llanos, illustrated by Anna Lopez Real

    Recommended for ages 4-9
    Published by Penny Candy Books

    About the Book
    The bilingual picture book Luca’s Bridge / El puente de Luca tells the emotional story of a boy coming to terms with his family’s deportation from the United States to Mexico.

    Luca is a U.S. citizen, but his parents aren’t. As a result, they end up being deported back to Mexico. Their family makes the decision to stick together instead of leaving Luca and his brother in the U.S. with relatives like other families sometimes do.

    Luca’s Bridge is a sad, but also very sweet and tender story that tackles the tough topics of immigration and deportation.

    Synopsis
    Luca has never lived outside the U.S., but when his parents receive a letter in the mail, the family must pack up and leave home for a strange land. Together in their car, Luca, his brother Paco, and their parents head across the border to Mexico where his parents were born. Luca doesn’t understand why he must leave the only home he’s ever known, his friends, and his school. He struggles through lonely and disorienting times―reflected both in Real’s delicate, symbolic illustrations and through Llanos’ description of his dreams―and leans on music, memory, and familial love for support. Luca’s Bridge / El puente de Luca is a story for everyone about immigration, deportation, home, and identity.

    About the Book
    Ada Twist is the queen of questions. Like, why does hot coffee smell stronger than cold? What kind of birds live in her backyard? And, especially, why does her brother Arthur get so cranky when she borrows his stuff for experiments?  But Ada’s questions really come in handy when her friend Rosie Revere needs help. Rosie’s Uncle Ned has gotten carried away in his famous helium pants, and Ada needs some answers—fast!

    How high can Uncle Ned float? Will he fly off into outer space? And, most important, how can they get him down? With the help of her fellow Questioneers Iggy Peck and Rosie Revere, her brother Arthur, and some new friends, Ada Twist is ready to save the day!

    We are huge fans of the books Iggy Peck, ArchitectRosie Revere, Engineer and Ada Twist, Scientist.  We also thoroughly enjoyed reading the first book in The Questioneers chapter book series, a spin-off of the popular bestselling picture books.  You can read my full review of that book here in case you missed it.

    The second book stars our favorite curious STEM loving character, Miss Ada Twist.  In true Ada fashion, she asks a myriad of never-ending questions and performs several science experiments.  This is a fun, engaging and entertaining chapter book for children ages 6-9.
