Am I a Unicorn? Spotlight and Giveaway

It’s March, so Happy Child Life Month!

I love to celebrate by featuring some amazing new resources and including giveaways. I’m kicking it off with one of my favorite authors, Stephanie Sorkin. She has been featured before, so be sure to check out her previous guest post.

Stephanie has written a new children’s book, Am I a Unicorn? that is perfect for children ages 3 to 8.

Am I a Unicorn is a wonderful story written in rhyme about a unicorn that breaks its horn and grapples with the feelings of being unique and different. Can the unicorn still be a unicorn without its most definitive feature? The story touches on self-esteem and diversity and ultimately teaches the important lesson of accepting one’s individuality.  “When your OUTERcorn doesn’t match your INNERcorn…a story is born! Join us as a unicorn finds the answer to this very important issue.”

You can purchase your copy at Amazon, Target, Walmart, and Barnes and Noble.

Spotlight and Giveaway on Three Fantastic Children’s Books

Looking for a great book to share with the kiddos? Check out Stephanie Sorkin’s children’s books, Chocolate Shoes with Licorice Laces, Frenemy Jane: The Sometimes Friend and Nutley The Nut-Free Squirrel. They are all absolutely adorable, humorous and beautifully illustrated.

My boys and I have been rotating them at night and they have brought up great conversations on using your imagination, being a good friend and understanding food allergies.

Nutty The Nut-Free Squirrel

At the end of each book it offers a recipe to bake a special treat with your little ones. Stephanie even includes ways of making it allergy-free. If this wasn’t enough, she has a portion of the proceeds go to charities that support children, such as Soles4Souls and FARE.
