Chippy Chipmunk: Babies in the Garden Review and Giveaway

Now that Emma is almost reading on her own, I’ve been on a book binge. Any book. Any theme. Doesn’t matter! I just want her to be exposed to all kinds of books with all kinds of messages.

Since the arrival of her baby sister in May, Emma has been intrigued by babies and how families are made.Chippy Chipmunk: Babies in the Garden is a perfect book that she can read that shows a family in the making! It goes perfectly with it’s prequel, Chippy Chipmunk: Parties in the Garden.

This book captures rare moments of the chipmunks natural habitat, and Emma loves seeing real, beautifully taken photos of sweet little animals! She enjoys following the story line of Chippy Chipmunk and his family as it grows and expands, just like our family :). The photos are really stunning — over 80 photos in all — and they are great for a beginning reader. She can follow along with the story by just glancing at the photos, or even make up a story of her own! This book has been a favorite for my kids, and it’s a must-have for any nature lover!

You can purchase a hardcover copy with dust jacket for $19.95.

Want to win a copy? Kathy Miller, the author of the Chippy Chipmunk books has even offered to sign and personalize it! Enter below!
