My Book Of Everything To Color {Review}

I received this book from Parragon Books for this review.

This month’s book was a perfect choice for our house. My oldest is very creative and loves anything related to the arts including dancing, singing and drawing. She is the QUEEN of coloring and is an absolute perfectionist when she does it- paying attention to the lines and shading, etc.

My Book Of Everything to Color Review

She was beyond excited to receive this book. The book is broken up into sections, which she had me add tabs to so that it would be easy for her to find the section she wanted to color in that day. Topics include: sports, vehicles, amphibians, and more.

MyBookofEverythignToColor2

We both love that there is a fact pertaining to the picture to color on each page, so she gets to do two things that she loves with this book- color and learn something new!

MyBookofEverythignToColor3(Notice the tabs on the side)

Let me not forget to mention that there are STICKERS!! My daughter’s absolute favorite.

This is a great book for road trips, rainy days, before bed activities- whenever. She loves it already and it has only been in our house for two days. Check it out here.

My daughter absolutely loves the Cutie Mark Crusaders. Ever since she saw the first episode air on television. They are funny and cute to watch as they try to figure out how they can get their cutie marks NOW (they don’t want to wait for them).

About This DVD:

In EQUESTRIA, obtaining a CUTIE MARK is an important coming-of-age moment for a young Pony. After all, Ponies acquire their CUTIE MARKS only after they discover a unique characteristic about themselves, setting them apart from all other Ponies. So when Sweetie Belle, Scootaloo and Apple Bloom meet, they instantly become friends and make it their mission to find their CUTIE MARKS! They are The Cutie Mark Crusaders!

This DVD includes 5 episodes:

  • The Cutie Mark Chronicles
  • The Cutie Pox
  • Flight To The Finish
  • Pinkie Pride and
  • Twilight Time

The release of “Cutie Mark Crusaders” marks the first of a series of planned collaborations between PlayDate Digital and Shout! Factory to cross-promote My Little Pony Friendship is Magic stories and media.

For even more Pony fun, PlayDate Digital has announced the new Cutie Pox Storybook App. When Apple Bloom becomes impatient waiting for her cutie mark, she decides to take things into her own hooves! In this interactive story book, follow Apple Bloom and the fillies as they learn that taking the easy path toward your goals isn’t always the best way. Enter the world of Equestria in this storybook adventure full of excitement, humor and friendship!

Discover God’s Heart: A Devotional Bible

Disclaimer: I received a free copy from Book Look Bloggers to review. All opinions are my own.

I’ve said over and over to myself that I want to get into my bible more.

I had two problems-

1. I didn’t know where to start- do I read from Genesis all the way through?

and

2. How much do I read? How little? For how long?

I wanted a devotional that would help guide me through the bible and give me questions to think about that would help me apply what I was reading to my daily life.

Discover God's Heart Book Cover

 

This is a 365-day devotional that breaks the bible up into more manageable parts. I specifically like the reading plans given in the back to focus on specific aspects in life. These include:

  • 30 Stories of Love and Friendship
  • 30 Days for New Christians Reading Plan
  • 30 Themes in Psalms and more

I love that I can read the bible verses and then click through (I have the eBook) to go to the devotional for the day based on those verses. I can highlight and take notes in my eReader to go back to as a reference.

I enjoy reading this at night before I go to bed. It gives me a way to settle down and get close to God before I go to bed for the night.

I enjoy this bible and I think anyone looking for a devotional will too.

Let There Be Bread

When Kitchen Aid contacted me with the opportunity to review their snacking loaf pan I JUMPED at the chance.

So that’s what that hook is for. I can knead dough in my stand mixer?!
