CLOSED! Pretty Please Press Books Giveaway!

Pretty Please Press was created with the idea that reading aloud helps establish good communication between parents and children. Many education and parenting experts stress that reading together during the elementary school years helps parents and children bond as a family and helps kids stay on the right track. Opening up lines of communication with kids early in life will encourage them to talk to you later, when "big character issues" arise. Along with Character Building Lesson Plans, they provide free educational downloads, including Vocabulary Building Cards and Concept Building Cards.

How about those books?

Bella Basset Ballerina

By Laura Aimee Garn
Illustrated by Valerie Sokolova
Bella Basset is a pup when her mother takes her to see the famous Royal Borzoi Ballet for the first time. At the ballet, a dream is born: Bella wants to become a dancer! But in Bella's world, only Borzois can dance, so she has many obstacles to overcome before she can realize her dream. This is a story about dedication and perseverance, which may give children (and grown-ups) the inspiration to pursue their dreams.


The Scritchy Little Twitchell Sisters

By Laura Aimee Garn
Illustrated by Erik Brooks
Lavinia and Emmeline Twitchell look like perfect little angels, but their behavior is anything but angelic! They squabble constantly, and their poor parents suffer in a noisy, divided household. When the girls are "discovered" by a creative vaudeville producer, their spectacular fights become entertainment, and they are launched on a glamorous career. Battles may be part of growing up with a sister, but it helps to look at them with humor. The Twitchell Sisters demonstrate that someday the fights may yield to understanding and appreciation.

Kick Block Punch

Written and illustrated by Jacquie Hann
Sam arrives at his first karate class all ready to receive his black belt. To his surprise, he has a lot to learn about karate, and there are many other belts to earn before he attains the rank of black belt. With the help of his patient instructor, he learns how to work hard toward his goal and to master this new skill. This story shows that patience and practice are important when we are approaching a new challenge.


Written and illustrated by Jeffrey Greene
In a distant galaxy, on a very colorful planet, a brilliant purple Pynx settles into her new home in the jungle. But her noisy arrival upsets the other fanciful creatures who are already living there quite happily. When the Pynx expands her family with dozens of new babies, her neighbors are very upset. The very vocal Pynx has had this problem before, but this time, with a little luck, she finds a real home. This is a story about being tolerant, learning to appreciate differences, and about finding ways to communicate.
