Thanks to Disney-Hyperion for sending me a copy of Beatrice Zinker, Upside Down Thinker and for providing a prize pack!

I know I always appreciate age-appropriate reading recommendations for my younger kids, so I'm pleased to share with you this book by a brand new author that's perfect for elementary age readers that are just beginning chapter books!

Beatrice Zinker, Upside Down Thinker is sweet, funny, and entertaining, all wrapped up with a great message about not being afraid to do your own thing. The cute illustrations give young eyes a break from too much text on a page while helping to keep them engaged in the story.

Recommended for ages 9-12, it's available for purchase now!

Beatrice does her best thinking upside down.

Hanging from trees by her knees, doing handstands . . . for Beatrice Zinker, upside down works every time. She was definitely upside down when she and her best friend, Lenny, agreed to wear matching ninja suits on the first day of third grade. But when Beatrice shows up at school dressed in black, Lenny arrives with a cool new outfit and a cool new friend. Even worse, she seems to have forgotten all about the top-secret operation they planned!

Can Beatrice use her topsy-turvy way of thinking to save the mission, mend their friendship, and flip things sunny-side up?

Learn more on the official Beatrice Zinker site.

Today, one (1) lucky Deal Seeking Mom reader will win a The Upsides of You Being You Prize Pack, which includes:

  • a copy of Beatrice Zinker, Upside Down Thinker
  • a Branded pencil case and notepad
  • Plus a $50 Visa gift card for that Back-to-School look that is just so you!

I’m hosting a #SerafinaBooks giveaway in partnership with Disney-Hyperion!!

Serafina and the Splintered Heart (Serafina #3)
By Robert Beatty
In Stores July 3, 2017
Middle-Grade

The storms are coming....

Something has happened to Serafina. She has awoken into a darkness she does not understand, scarred from a terrible battle, only to find that life at Biltmore Estate has changed in unimaginable ways. Old friends do unthinkable things and enemies seem all around.

A mysterious threat moves towards Biltmore, a force without a name, bringing with it violent storms and flooding that stands to uproot everything in its path. Serafina must uncover the truth about what has happened to her and find a way to harness her strange new powers before it's too late.

With only days to achieve the impossible, Serafina fights to reclaim herself as the Guardian of Biltmore, friend of Braeden, daughter of her Pa, and heroine of the Blue Ridge Mountains and all the folk and creatures that call it home.

In the epic third installment of Robert Beatty’s #1 bestselling series, Serafina takes her rightful place among literary champions as she battles fiercely to defend all she loves and become everything that she is meant to be.

The Serafina Series

Set in the magical Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, Robert Beatty’s #1 New York Times best-selling series stars the fierce, resilient character of Serafina, a wild girl longing for kinship and struggling to understand her place in the world. This timeless story of finding one’s true family and best self chronicles an epic battle between good and evil and rewrites the rules of who can be a hero.

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!

Today, one (1) lucky Deal Seeking Mom reader will win a Vampirina Ballerina Dreadfully Fun Prize Pack, which includes:

To enter, share where you'd like to head to for your dread-fully fun family night - the beach, the city?

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.
