StinkyKids and the Runaway Scissors is a wonderful book. It tells the story of what happens when a kid doesn’t tell her parents about a problem and tries to solve it herself. She learns a valuable lesson!
This is a really well made book as well. It is hardback and has a dust cover. Even with some rough handling by several kids it should last a few years…maybe even a couple of generations if you are into passing things down.
This book also won the 2011 Silver Mom’s Choice Award® for best children’s picture book. The dust cover of the book I received has the silver mom’s choice award stamp on it. The Mom’s Choice is a prestigious awards program that recognizes authors, inventors, companies, parents and others for their efforts in creating quality family-friendly media, products and services. To learn more about them visit the Mom’s Choice Awards website.
The second book StinkyKids See a Full Moon is available for preorder now. If you are going to be in the New York area on Saturday September 10th you will have the opportunity to purchase the book and have it signed by the Author! Be at FAO Schwarz Fifth Avenue (767 FifthAvenue -58th Street) at 1 Pm. Britt Menzies will be visiting for a meet and greet and will host story time featuring the new book. This would be a great excuse for a trip to the city!
The StinkyKids are so cute! They have dolls as well as the book but I only received a book for review. The pictures of the dolls are very cute though. You can see them all on the StinkyKids website. And they are available for purchase at Amazon.com or Target.com.
StinkyKids donate a percentage of profits to Books, Bears and Bonnets, Inc., a charity founded in honor of the Authors aunt who died from uterine cancer. You can also become a fan on their Facebook page. Or follow them on Twitter.
StinkyKids The Musical will be coming out in early 2012 as well. It will be produced by Vital Theatre Company, Inc. a prominent family musical producer. The show will be for entire families to enjoy together.
The author is a Mom herself who was inspired to create the StinkyKids when her daughter requested to be painted as a ballerina. The brand has a fresh approach that is fun and unique and teaches life lessons through their products featuring the 10 characters. The characters learn to make right choices through their mistakes and live by the motto “Always Be A Leader Of Good.”
I really liked this book. My grand-kids are not around right now so I couldn’t show it to them but I’m sure they would like it. It is a wonderful book. The best part for you guys is that I’m going to be giving away this copy during the upcoming Blogmania event! It is a signed copy.
I received the book free for this review and it has only been handled enough for me to read it. I received no compensation for this review other than the book. Although if she would like to give me a doll I’d take it :p
