Valentine’s Review & Giveaway: Sweet Storybooks by Joyce Wan

By on January 18, 2012

Seeking a beautiful keepsake Valentine’s gift for your little Cupcake that you can enjoy beyond February 14th? Check out two new children’s titles illustrated by artist Joyce Wan published by Cartwheel Books an imprint of Scholastic.

“We Belong Together” is a small hard bound picture book that details great timeless couples, like peanut butter & jelly, bacon & eggs and hot cocoa with marshmallows. Both my 3 and 5 year old giggled while I read to them and wanted me to tell them which foods they could be.  After we read they each took turns immersed in checking out the simple, colorful pictures.

“You Are My Cupcake” hits on all the popular terms of affection parents use on their babies – from sweet pea to peanut. Although neither of my kids like to be called baby anymore (especially my 3 year old who takes great offense lately) they really like when I remind them of these sweet names I have called them over the years.

You can easily pick up either title for $6.99 at www.amazon or enter our sweepstakes to win a free copy of both titles.

I saw Joyce’s adorable Zodiac Zoo Rabbit tote bag in a local shop once, but they sold out before I could buy one and I didn’t know where to look for them again. I’m so glad you’re hosting this giveaway because now I’ve found out! That illustration is definitely my favorite.
