Little Mouse & The Big Cupcake Review & Giveaway...

There is a new book being released tomorrow that is sure to please your little ones...Little Mouse and the Big Cupcake by Thomas Taylor.  This adorable book focuses on one little mouse and his plight to carry a very BIG cupcake home so he can eat it.

Little mouse is approached my a variety of helpful friends who are also unable to carry this enormous cupcake but are happy to help by taking nibbles and bites and chomps of this "chocolate-chip raspberry-cream cupcake".  By the time all of little mouse's friends have all taken a taste of his cupcake, there is a small bite left....just exactly "mouse size".

This sweet book gives excellent examples of sharing.  Although little mouse is approached by a parade of friends, each asking for some of his treat, the little guy always says yes.  This book was a treat to read  to A&W with a pleasing flow as well as some fun with the fonts (big is shown as BIG etc...).  The illustrations (done by Jill Barton) are excellent and bring life and spirit to all the animals in soft colors.  This 32 page, hardcover book is recommended for ages 4-8 and I think that is spot on.  Buy this one for the sweet lover in your life...isn't that all kids??  You can pick up a copy on Amazon....

I love story time when the little ones start to pick up on words either by memory or by sight. It makes it so fun to see things click as they start to read.

Hello Guys

Are there any Blu-Ray/dvd

combination players?
I do know there are actually dvd/vcr players. Are there any players which perform both dvd disks as well as blu-rays that I can purchase rather then buying two individual players?

Appreciate it !
