Workman Publishing Children's Book Prize Pack Giveaway!

Over the past month you have heard me talk about several books from Workman Publishing that have given me and the kids so many hours of fun.  Santa! by Rufus Butler Seder, A Little Bit of Oomph by Barney Saltzberg and Frog Trouble by Sandra Boynton have quick become favorites in the Reviewed by Mom household.  In case you  missed my first review posts here is a bit about the books as well as links to my full reviews...

Santa by Rufus Butler Seder
 Santa Claus is going to town! Marrying the magic of Scanimation with the universally beloved figure of Santa Claus, Santa! is a holiday book unlike any other.

It presents a Santa that readers have never seen before—acrobatic, playful, a little mischievous, filled with joyful energy. Here’s Santa hula-hooping. Santa juggling. Santa doing cartwheels and Santa on a unicycle. Children, as they did with Gallop!, will want to imitate Santa’s irresistibly happy motions. The grown-ups will be unable to stop smiling—it’s hard to imagine a cooler character than this jolly St. Nick as he runs, spins, gyrates, backflips, and blows big bubbles.

Scanimation is the technology behind the instant New York Times best-selling series that started with Gallop!, to most recently The Wizard of Oz. Author and inventor Rufus Butler Seder continues to refine the Scanimations, with ever more smooth-flowing and detailed moving images—perfectly applied, in this case, to the irresistible figure of Santa Claus.

A Little Bit of Oomph by Barney Saltzberg
 How do you make the ordinary extraordinary? With a little bit of oomph! An utterly inspiring and playful new book on creativity from Barney Saltzberg, author of Beautiful Oops!, A Little Bit of Oomph! teaches the invaluable lesson of throwing your heart into whatever you’re doing and trying just a little bit harder— because with a little extra effort and a lot of oomph, you can make anything beautiful.

With a little bit of oomph you can help a sprinkle of seeds—lift flap—become a magical, three-dimensional bouquet of flowers. With a little bit of oomph, small notions—like a goldfish in a little bowl—open out to big oceans (just look through the peephole!). Oomph can transform a dog’s tail into a funny tale (there’s a miniature book involved). Oomph changes curiosity into discovery, daydreams into playthings, your singing into others’ dancing.

A triumph of imagination, vibrant, colorful art, and paper engineering, A Little Bit of Oomph! is filled with pop-ups, lift-the-flaps, spinning circles and gatefolds—and, underlying every page, Barney’s timeless message that creativity is for everyone. Just add a little bit of oomph.


Frog Trouble by Sandra Boynton (book & CD)


Hang on to yer hat, Cowboy.

Yeeeee-hah! Boynton goes Country! With three Gold Record albums and a Grammy nomination to her credit, Boynton now brings you FROG TROUBLE, a terrific CD and illustrated songbook of her new and wildly original Country songs. And they’re sung by a truly amazing roster of Country Music’s biggest and brightest stars: Here’s Brad Paisley with Copycat, Dwight Yoakam singing I’ve Got a Dog, Alison Krauss on End of a Summer Storm, Ben Folds rocking Broken Piano, Darius Rucker with Beautiful Baby. The lonesome-cowboy title track is performed by the low-voiced moody rocker Mark Lanegan (yes, of Queens of the Stone Age.) Add Josh Turner, Fountains of Wayne, Ryan Adams, Linda Eder, and quickly rising Country star Kacey Musgraves—all accompanied by Nashville’s finest instrumentalists, and WHOA. You’ve got yourself some mighty fine music, with a whole lot of gumption and heart.
A COUNTRY MUSIC ALBUM FOR KIDS AND EVERYONE

All three of these titles are big favorites with our family and ones that we turn to again and again.  If you are looking for a great book for gifting (or getting!) and or all of these would be fantastic.

I am so excited to tell you that Workman Publishing is giving one lucky RBM reader a copy of all three of these books!  Thanks so much to the sponsor for this great prize pack and good luck!  To enter use the Rafflecopter form below.
