-CLOSED- Little One Books Review & Giveaway!

 Little man is a book lover for sure! I love finding new books for him that will spark his interest and curiosity. I also love finding new places to shop for good, quality books, because, seriously, there are a million, bazillion children's books on the market, but that doesn't mean they are all interesting or fun page-turners for little man. So, with that being said, I was so excited to be able to work with Little One Books for this review and giveaway!

Little One Books was founded by Joan McCoy and Barney Cohen who have five grandchildren under the age of seven and have personally selected and reviewed each and every item that Little One Books carries. I think they've read through their fair share of books! Little One Books carries books, music, and videos for children birth through age five and the site is set up so that you can easily find the perfect item by your child's age! Little One Books was created to make shopping for books, music and videos for children informative, not overwhelming.

Little One Books takes great care and pride in their selection of books and my absolute favorite feature of their site is that they explain why they chose each and every book! I loved looking through their selection of books and their helpful explanations really helped me to find the perfect book for little man! 


I chose Peek-A-Who? by Nina Laden and little man absolutely loves it! He loves playing peek-a-boo right now and even tries to say peek-a-boo every time I say it, although his sounds a little more like "Baa-ba-boo!" He loves to cover his eyes and then fling his arms back wide and of course, he loves it just as much when I play peek-a-boo too! Reading through Peek-A-Who? has been so much fun and it is such a cute book! The illustrations are big and colorful and the pages are easy for little man to turn on his own. Little man has also had fun pointing to all the different things in the book to learn their names. 
"Hooo..."
He loves the owl and the cow pages and every time he sees the owl he says, "Hooo!" and when we flip to, "Peek a Moo", he loves to point at the cow and say, "Moo-Moo"! 


I think the biggest surprise came at the end of the book though when he saw his reflection in the mirror! he got the biggest kick out of is and had the biggest smile on his face! Now he loves to angle the book so he can see me in the reflection and he will say, "Hi!" over and over again while he sits on my lap. Ahhh... a good book and my little man on my lap.... nothing is better than that!


 Little One Books is a wonderful site to find new books for your little one - I know I have already found more that I think little man needs for his bookshelf! The customer service at Little One Books is outstanding and they are so friendly to chat with! Little One Books really puts the extra effort in to making customers feel like they are part of the Little One Books family.

You can SHOP for books, music and videos from the Little One Books site. They have a wonderful selection, I know you will find something special for you little one - a book to help your children learn more about Earth day and the environment or maybe a special book to tuck into the Easter basket! Little One Books also has a special offer just for my readers! When you Buy any 2 Little One Books products you will get the CD Sunflower for FREE!
