The Birdy Book Series - Review, Event And Giveaway

Getting To Know The Author

As many of the readers of this blog know I wear many hats (and a tiara) which includes working at The Sign Depot where I regularly attend Chamber of Commerce meetings.  Recently Stephanie Van De Ven joined our group as a representative of Lutherwood (which is a wonderful community organization).  When we got to talking she let me know that she follows this blog and was working on an upcoming children's book.  Now that that book has been published we thought it would be a great book for the familes visit this blog.

Review Of The Birdy Book Series

The Birdy Book Series is great book for families with children in the 4-7 age range.  As you can see in the image above it provides Life Lessons and Positive Affirmations for Kids and Their Families. It is well written and beautifully illustrated.  It teaches children about the power of positivity in an easy to follow format.  There are even spots for families to write there reflections in the book.  These areas are called My Mindful Reflection Section.  I always say if I need to remember something I write it down.  This takes that idea and turns it into a positive mental attitude.
