Looking for a Read Aloud?!? Giveaway!!!

I was contacted by Ali Maier, author of Mom Made Us Write This in the Summer, to review her book.  First of all, I was excited someone wanted my opinion.. haha!  Second of all, I love to read children's books.  Not just the Eric Carle kind (which I do love), but books that create excitement and make you laugh like a kid kind.

I had so much fun reading it!

Mom Made Us Write This in the Summer did just that!  It was the perfect combination of laughter and compassion that a child can understand and relate too. 

This book would be perfect for a classroom read aloud for many reasons...
1.  It's easy to get into character (both have engaging personalities).
2.  It will grab the attention of both boys and girls.
3.  The book is perfect for almost any age!

Click the picture above to check out the book and learn more about Maggie and Max.

Ali chose to write the "Mom Made Us Write This" series to encourage young readers to do something she loves – to read! Ali wanted to write a book series that would allow readers to laugh and encourage them to write and share their own stories.

Want to snag your own copy?!?!
It's available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

  1. Wow! I have not seen this book before but what a fun looking book. I was just talking to my daughter over winter break about how we should start journaling with each other as a way to get her to write more.

    1. It's a great read! Thanks for entering the giveaway.
