I received a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
I absolutely love reviewing books. I was a bookworm as a child and then became a librarian as an adult. Now I hope I am raising two girls to love books as much as I do. This month's Parragon Book Buddies selections are some of the most exciting yet. They feature books from the new Disney movie Moana and several Christmas books that are perfect for the fast approaching holidays. I have selections here for a wide variety of ages from infants and toddlers all the way through bigger kids ages 10 or so.
Disney Moana Ocean Explorers Floor Coloring Pad lets you join Moana and demigod Maui on an ocean adventure to return to the heart of Te Fiti. It has over 30 giant pages to color and more than 50 colorful stickers to use inside! Plus, you can pull out the perforated pages and use them as posters. This book also comes with a bonus code for a free digital Disney storybook.
Disney Moana Spirit of Adventure Color It lets you join Moana, Maui, Heihei, and Pua for some oceanic coloring fun! Includes awesome black-and-white coloring and activity pages from the latest Disney film, Moana. Add color to every page and bring their brave adventure to life!
Disney Moana Born to Voyage lets little ones set sail with Moana on an amazing ocean adventure! Find the heart of Te Fiti, count the seashells, spot the matching Maui, and much, much more in this oceanic activity book. Also includes six awesome character pencil toppers.
The Snow Queen picture book lets little ones (listed ages 3 to 6) enjoy the classic story in a way they will LOVE and want to read over and over again. Experience a young girl's quest to save her best friend from the cold-hearted Snow Queen. Hans Christian Andersen's classic fairy tale is brought to life by sweet illustrations that are an absolute treat for the eyes. This book is truly a masterpiece and it even grabs my 8 year old's attention every time I read it.
The Nutcracker from the story by E.T.A. Hoffman and illustrated by Caleria Docampo is a beautifully illustrated book that should be read every year at Christmas time. In this classic tale join Clara on her Christmas Eve adventure as she steps into a world of toy soldiers and beautiful fairies.
Jingle Paws by Margaret Wise Brown is a smaller hardback book for little ones ages 4 to 7. Imagine if your pets had their own special visitor on the night before Christmas! Meet Jingle Paws and his clumsy guinea pig helpers in this delightful festive rhyme from Margaret Wise Brown, author of the children's classics Goodnight Moon and Runaway Bunny.
Jingle Jingle Little Reindeer is a board book with adorable finger puppet attached. I am a HUGE fan of these puppet books for toddlers because they are just so stinkin' cute and kids love them! In this book wiggle the reindeer to help it get to Santa's sleigh on time!
