New Book Review: Ziggie Tales

This past week I have had the opportunity to review a new book by Kathleen M Wainwright. The book will be released on April 19th, so watch for it!

The story line is cute and you can read what my 9 year old daughter thought about it here. We decided to use this opportunity to launch her book review page on this blog. She's excited, and really connected with the main character, Marley.

Marley is a typical, eccentric 7 year old girl who has 2 best friends, her cat Ziggie and the rational Layla. When Marley cooks up a scheme, Layla is there to keep her in line. Everyone needs a friend like that!

Through a hard situation, Marley learns some valuable lessons about life and responsibility. A young reader will enjoy the adventure, mystery, and drama as it unfolds.

The author has put together a packet of companion activities for this book, and you get a sneak peek at that for FREE today, just for stopping by to read about this new book! Here's the link to a few activities to get your young readers acquainted with autobiographical poems. I know my little reviewer is excited to some of these going. I'll post here finished poetry after she uploads her next review ;).

Here's a chance to win this book for your young reader! You can come back and enter the drawing everyday of the book tour, so stop back and enter as many times as you can. The same drawing will be on all the blogs on the tour, so you can enter on any of blogs you visit.

Watch this post over the next few days as more of the details of the virtual book tour are released. I hear there will be some companion activities for this book, several other bloggers will be sharing other perspectives of the book, and a giveaway! So stay tuned ;)

So you don't miss any of the fun, here's a link-up of all the other blogs hosting this tour!
