Children's Book Lucky By Craig Inglis Review and GIVEAWAY - Does your child like to read?

Does your child like to read? My Lil Man loves reading. Just the other day, I caught Lil Man with Mickey Mouse under his arm while he was reading to him. He was just jabbering away, and showing Mickey each picture. We usually read about 3-4 books at nap, and then 3-4 at bedtime (not counting any books we might read in between).

So when I had the opportunity to review Lucky by Craig Inglis, I jumped at the chance. Lil Man was pretty excited to check it out too.

Reading Lucky

Lucky is about dog who overcomes some pretty big obstacles after a car accident. I will admit, as I was reading the book, at first, I thought it was a little intense. But as the book progressed, I was pleased to see that it had an uplifting story about overcoming hardships. And I liked how the author ended the book with Lucky's new found abilities. Lil Man, since he's just 2, didn't grasp the concept about overcoming obstacles. But he was mesmerized by the vibrant pictures. He loved all of the bright colors.

So I thought I'd share a copy with you. One lucky winner no pun intended ;) will win a copy of Lucky by Craig Inglis. Just enter below. The Giveaway ends June 24, 2013. Good luck! 

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Full Disclosure: I was provided with a copy of Lucky free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience. 


  1. Thanks for the giveaway! I read with my girls everyday, would love to add this book to the collection!

  2. We read every night before bedtime!

  3. For me it isn't my kids but my brothers, boyfriends niece and nephew and sometimes even kids at the library where I volunteer. As for how often, it varies greatly on who I am reading to. :)

What Summer Taught Me

This Summer has been a big learning experience - for both Lil Man and myself. Who knew that an amusement park could be such a learning experience for both of us. I watched as my little boy, all on his own, climbed stairs among strangers, learned how to wait his turn, slide down a water slide, and do it over and over again. I watched as other kids shoved him out of their way, cut in front of him as he stood patiently 'waiting for his turn'. Groves of bigger kids kept cutting in front of him, and I held back and gave him time to respond. This for me was a learning experience. See, people have to have room or space to grow. So I learned how to let go, let out the leash a little, and give Lil Man some space. The first time the kids pushed him aside, he really didn't know what to do. After a few minutes of this, I did intervene. I told him to get in line. Take his turn, and when it was his turn he was to go. And the next time as other kids pushed past him, it only took a few

Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker Review and Giveaway

I love music and streaming music through various apps on my iPhone. But with the case that I have on my phone, it sort of blocks the speakers a little. I can hear, but it can be a little muffled. So when I heard about the  Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker  I jumped at the chance to try it. I was a little nervous since there really wasn't a lot of instructions on setup. I mean it had the usual pictures of this button does this etc, but there really wasn't a lot of documentation with it. So I was a little apprehensive at first.  But it didn't take me too long to realize that I didn't need a lot of instruction. It was pretty much straight forward. Charge it. After it was charged, turn it on. I went into my connections on my iPhone. It immediately found it, paired, and I was good to go.  I did get a little confused on which button was volume up (and down). But after a little trial and error with that, I've had absolutely zero iss


You'd think as many times as I've been rejected in my life that rejection wouldn't hurt anymore. Really, I can't count the number of times that I've been rejected, or slighted, or been on the receiving end of cruel words. I'm almost 40 for pete's sake. Rejection shouldn't bring tears anymore, but it still does. It just seems like I've been faced with it a lot lately. It started with the Running and has seemed to carry over into other parts of my life. I have spent most of my life on the sidelines watching other people. That's what happened with the marathon.   Once again, I'm on the side as others do things that I want to do. I trained. I had to have an unexpected surgery. I got injured. I couldn't run. It happens. It isn't the end of  the world. But what many don't realize is that there are numerous times in my life that I am on the sidelines, watching, wishing I was the one 'out there' - not the one watching. . But
