Thanks to Disney-Hyperion for sending me a copy of Vampirina at the Beach and for providing a prize pack!

I miss the days of paging through a colorful picture book every evening with my girls. With its gorgeous colorful illustrations and spunky main character, Vampirina at the Beach is exactly the sort of book that would have been in our regular rotation...

When the summer moon is full, a beach trip is an epic way to spend the night.

With her signature poise, Vampirina and her clan gear up for a festive time at the beach. Keeping her ballet lessons in mind, Vampirina demi-pliés on a surfboard, leaps for a volleyball, and finishes each competition with style, even if she doesn't always come out on top. Vampirina At The Beach (Vampirina Ballerina Series) was just recently released and is perfect for enjoying with your 2-6 year old!

Thank you to HarperChildrens for sending me copies of Stick Cat: A Tail of Two Kitties and Olga and the Smelly Thing from Nowhere and providing the prize pack!

Being an avid reader myself, I've been on a mission to raise readers since even before my oldest was born. That doesn't mean it's been smooth sailing. It's taken some coaxing, and even medical intervention for one struggling child.

Find reading material that's the appropriate reading level and engaging can be difficult, which is why I've always loved books like Stick Cat: A Tail of Two Kitties and Olga and the Smelly Thing from Nowhere. They're perfect for that in between stage where picture books are a breeze but chapter books filled with page after page of solid text are overwhelming. My 9 year old was thrilled when I handed him the Stick Cat book -- he's a big fan of the Stick Dog series. And my 10 year old sped through the Olga book in no time.

Stick Cat: A Tail of Two Kitties

Perfect for fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Big Nate, and animal lovers everywhere – meet Stick Cat!  A heavily illustrated young reader series, from the author of Stick Dog -- Tom Watson! Your young artist can even learn how to draw Stick Cat!

In the first adventure (available now), it’s a big day in the big city for Stick Cat and his best friend, Edith. There are treasures to hunt, songs to sing, pigeons to catch, and naps to take. But way up on the 23rd floor, danger lurks just around the corner. Terrible noises and violent crashes trap a desperate man in the building across the alley. Stick Cat will need to navigate his way across the alley -- and around Edith’s peculiar ways -- to attempt a rescue.

Check out the official Stick Cat site.

Olga and the Smelly Thing from Nowhere

Perfect for fans of Dear Dumb Diary and My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish, and great preparation for El Deafo, Roller Girl, and Smile, your reader will love Olga and the Smelly Thing from Nowhere. Your young artist can also learn to Draw Animals with Elise Gravel, too!

Olga finds a creature in her garbage can one day, and all it says is “MEH!” It won’t eat, it won’t sleep, it snores, it stinks, and Olga studies it like mad. She adores it and eventually names it after herself--an OLGAMUS. A trip to the library reveals little, while a trip to the local shop proves successful when Olga discovers Meh’s favorite food is olives! These episodes take place over a few days in Olga’s never-dull life, and she manages to reveal a great amount of information not only about herself, but about everything from the scientific method and Jane Goodall and some of her favorite odd creatures to the ins and outs of friendship and every human’s use for living in a community.

Check out the official Olga and the Smelly Thing from Nowhere site.
