Book Review: This Little Prayer of Mine by Anthony DeStefano

I actually received the book entitled This Little Prayer of Mine :)

It is a beautifully illustrated book that reads like poetry. The brilliantly colored pictures are what makes the whole book come together. The colors are vivid and the images endearing. It's like getting to watch a child's dream unfold.

This would be an awesome gift for any child from 5-8 years old. Although I think the younger kids would appreciate it as well.

Very cute. I highly recommend it!

I got this book for free in exchange for my review. You can get free books too if you sign up for Blogging for Books!

It's Turkey Time!

It's time to bring out the Thanksgiving decor. I was at Walmart a couple days ago and they are already clearancing out their Thanksgiving stuff. Seriously? And some crazy person in our neighborhood has their Christmas tree up this week. Hello? It's only the second week of November. Around here we celebrate Thanksgiving.

Anyways, off the soapbox...Here is Tom Turkey once again making his annual appearance. I'm gonna be hosting a giveaway during the week leading up to Thanksgiving so I thought I'd let Tom have his minute of fame first. If you've been on here ever you may have seen Tom before. This is a repost of sorts. I hope you enjoy!

I love Thanksgiving! It's right in the middle of the holidays and also in fall which is my favorite season. So I thought I'd share a printable I created for my kids a few years ago.

This is Tom Turkey. He's not very happy. Do you know why? He knows that Thanksgiving is coming soon. lol. So feel free to print Tom and share him. Just link back if you post him on your blog. I'd love to see your pics! We've been doing this since I created it in 2005 and my kids look forward to it every year.

Countdown to Thanksgiving
