I'm Going to Give You A Bear Hug! by Caroline B. Cooney, Illustrated by Tim Warnes


I'm Going To Give You A Bear Hug! is an adorable children's book with a sweet poem of so many kinds of hugs... all the ones mamas give their babies (no matter how old they are!).  I read this book to my youngest daughter -- she is FAMOUS for her "Choking, not breathing" hugs (that her mama-- me-- taught her when she was just tiny).  The older she got, the more choking, not breathing these hugs became.  Hugs are a very important part of our love language!!

I'm Going To Give You A Bear Hug! is written sweetly and illustrated beautifully!! The partnership between Cooney and Warnes is a brilliant partnership.  This book is a pleasure to share with children, geared to the younger crowd (ages 4-8).   It's a great book for any caregiver, whether grandparents to grandchildren, parents to child or aunt/uncle/older sibling to younger child.  It's just so SWEET.

NIV Holy Bible for Girls, Journal Edition: a review



          So, I was recently sent this lovely Bible for girls. I was really excited-- I am a Bible Journaler and my 10 yr old likes to do whatever Mom is doing. :) First let me say, I LOVE the cover of this Bible!!  I would carry this Bible myself... I've seriously thought about keeping it!  It's so pretty and just girly enough.




         Inside the Bible is just as nice as the outside.  The print is kinda small (or maybe my eyes are old, lol), but otherwise, the inside is perfect for journaling, drawing, or note- taking. The Scriptures are in the center and to the edge, there are lines for those like me who need something to write on for a straight line.



 


        Included is this pretty blue, attached ribbon bookmark and an pink elastic cord attached to Bible for keeping it closed when not in use.

         Overall, I really love this sweet Bible and look forward to my daughter carrying it, using it and hiding it in her heart!!  If you are interested in finding this for a girl in your life (and honestly, it would be great for a girl aged 9-99) check out the links below.  Even better, Amazon has them in different styles (colors).  Yay!!
