Snuggle Puppy & Origami On The Go Book Review and Giveaway





I LOVE to read to my son. As most of my readers know I am book obsessed! But its a good thing and my son loves books just as much as me. I get the occasional book thrown at me but its sweet in a way because its his way of telling me hey pay attention and read to me! Well at least its my interpretation lol


For Valentine's Day we reviewed Snuggle Puppy by Sandra Boynton. I have to say this is one of the cutest books about expressing your love to your little one I have read so far. Its very sweet and simple with a catchy tune. The book shows a Mama puppy telling her little pup how she feels about him in a song. I have been singing it all week to my son and in my head. Its so very cute. Part of it goes "I love what you are, I love what you do, Snuggle Puppy I love you!!" The book has you sing it low then shout it as loud as you can. I simply adore it! My little guy laughs when I sing it really loud, I think partly because I act out part of it by putting my hand on my heart when I say "love" and pointing to him when I say "you". Just last night I sang it to him as I rocked him to sleep. This book is perfect for Valentine's Day for the little one you love in your life.


My Snuggle Puppy!





The other book we reviewed is Origami On The Go! I feel like this year paper is going to be a crafty low tech type of fun for families. The book comes with papers to make the animals and objects. The papers have really nice print on them. Some are giraffe pattern, peacock feathers and solid colors.  It also included stickers for eyes and mouths. The fun thing is once you learn to make the project you can use just about any paper you find. The dollar store often times has construction paper that you can use and with crayons you can draw on funny faces or other details.
I had a blast making the fortune teller. I remember making them as a kid and playing with them. I put sweet sayings in it like "Love you", "Your so handsome" and "Your so smart" that way I could play it with my little guy. We took this book in the car so we don't have pictures but I must say it came in handy. We were at the doctors office for a long wait and my son became very irritated. I took out the book picked a project and he quickly was distracted by me folding the paper and then showing him the character I had made. I made him the Greek Fish and pretended it was swimming around him. He giggled then grabbed it and kinda of smashed it. That seems to be his form of joy, to smash the things I make, its fine with me because its just paper!
