I received a free copy of the book 100 Things I Love About Dad. Opinions are my own.

My friend Jeff Bogle recently published the book 100 Things I Love About Dad which is a book filled with so many prompts for kids to write about what they love about their dad. Jeff is a great dad and he is also a very insightful person. The book’s prompts are varied and will provide dad with so many great moments to relive based on what the kids enter. Jeff also includes additional pages called Extra Love. These are blank pages where kids can write up even more memories that they have of their dad.

You can pick up this book on and it will make a perfect Christmas, Birthday or Father’s Day gift for the dads in your life. Please consider using my affiliate link when you purchase the book.

Andy and African Animals

We received a couple of free books from National Geographic to check out and review. Opinions are my own.

Andy loves animals and he loves learning all about animals. While he is mostly into Axolotls now he likes so many other animals. He has a great time looking through the National Geographic books to find out all about some amazing animals.

Andy also likes sea creatures and takes science classes in the Summer on Cape Cod. The Go Wild! book on Sea turtles provided him with some great images and lots of facts about sea turtles. He loved this little book.
