Review and Giveaway: Mr Bo Finds a New Home and a New Name
I've had the pleasure of reviewing a precious new children's book called Mr. Bo Finds a New Home and a New Name. If you follow my blog, you probably know that I am a reading specialist, so children's books are near and dear to my heart! This book did not disappoint. Told from the point of view of a stray cat wanting to be adopted, I firmly believe that you and your child will fall in love with this story as quickly as I did!
You can learn more about Mr. Bo and his author on his website, MrBoBooks.com
Something else I really like about this book is that it comes with a FREE e-Live link to download the audio version of the book! This is a WONDERFUL idea! Not only can a child listen to the book alone this way, but this also makes the book much more helpful for students who might have difficulty reading. The more a child who struggles reading hears words read aloud, the more likely he or she is to remember the words and to be able to recognize them in print. There are many children who may struggle sounding out words successfully but can comprehend books well. This is ideal for that child! This also gives a child who is not yet a very fluent reader a good example of a fluent reading of the book. A child can then began to imitate the reading of the story, and thus become a more fluent reader in return!
I'm so excited that not only do I get to share the story of Mr. Bo Finds a New Home and a New Name with you, I also have a copy to give away! All you have to do to enter is tell me the name of one of your favorite children's books. That's it! I'll keep the giveaway open until April 2 at noon.
Thanks so much for dropping by and for entering the giveaway! I hope you enjoy the book as much as I do! Thanks again to the Family Review Network for the opportunity to review this book!
