Unlikely Friendships for Kids....Review & Give Away!
In our home we are big animal lovers. My children love to visit animals in the shelter, learn about new animal friends and reading books about animals. When Workman Publishing sent over 2 books from the Unlikely Friendships for Kids series I was delighted. These books are exactly the kind of stories my children love! The series for adults (by Jennifer S. Holland) had already been a huge hit spending lost of time on the New York Times bestseller list so could not wait to dig into the children's series with my three kiddos. Here is some background....
Now Unlikely Friendships is rewritten for younger readers: Unlikely Friendships for Kids, a series of hardcover chapter books for children, ages seven and up. Here are three collections each with five of the clearest, most interesting stories from the original book, like the monkey and the dove or the leopard and the cow. Chapter books give young readers a strong sense of accomplishment, and these heartwarming animal stories, with their incredible photographs and inexplicable mysteries of attraction, their focus on friendship, love, and the ways that creatures of all different species can find common bonds of affection, will keep kids turning the pages to find out about the unusual ways animals help each other and discover the love of new friends.
Each is a perfect gift for young animal lovers, and a lovely subject to help kids get reading.
I highly recommend this darling series for all children. It is well written and heartwarming making it a super choice for a bedtime (or any time!) read. Pick up the whole series on Amazon.....
I am so pleased to tell you that Workman Publishing will be giving one lucky RBM reader all three of the Unlikely Friendships for Kids books.....The Monkey and the Dove, The Dog and the Piglet and The Leopard and the Cow.
