The Looking Book GIVEAWAY!! CLOSED

This giveaway is now CLOSED! Congratulations to wmmahaney for winning. Winner chosen using random.org .



Product Description 

 (taken from Amazon.com)

A delightful story that encourages children to put down the TV remotes and video-game controllers and take a look at the wonder of the world around them. 'This grass is amazing!' he suddenly said.
'There are all kinds of things here -- brown, yellow, and red!
There are twig-things and rock-things
And dirt-things and string-things,
Along with a whole lot of little black bug things!'

In The Looking Book, author P. K. Hallinan uses lively rhyming verse to entice children to delight in the wonders of the world around them. Given a pair of 'lookers' by their mom, two boys soon realize that the lookers aren't needed at all. They just need to take the time to step outside, and they will see how much fun they can have.


About the Author

P. K. Hallinan has been writing and illustrating books for children since his wife first asked him to create one for their boys more than 35 years ago. Today, P. K. writes inspirational stories about holidays, relationships, and life values. His book, Let's Be Kind, was chosen by Focus on the Family as a top 10 family-friendly picture book. P. K. has over 100 titles to his credit, with more than eight million copies sold. In addition to his writing, P. K. is an ordained minister and a well-known school speaker. Patrice Barton's artistic talents were first discovered at age three, when she was found creating a mural on the dining room wall with a pastry brush and a can of Crisco. Her interest and passion in art grew as she did, and she earned a BFA in Studio Art from the University of Texas. She has been working as an illustrator ever since.

MY REVIEW

I love The Looking Book! I think it is a delightful story. I read it to my 3 kids and they all really liked it. Hallinan has written in very kid-friendly rhyming language and it captured my kids attention right away. I LOVE that it is a book focused on getting kids to unplug for awhile and enjoy the world around them. The illustrations by Patrice Barton are wonderful and complement the story perfectly.  This book would be a definite asset to any child's home or school library.

Thanks so much to Phenix & Phenix Literary Publicists for sending me a copy of this book to review and for sponsoring this giveaway.
