Weekly Book Giveaway #3



I just received this book for review this past week. I have not had time to write my review so I have included a review from a fellow blogger. I have read the book and you can expect a review from me soon, but here is a chance for you to win a copy. Without further delay here is the review from a friend.

Far too often the little ones become either scared and confused or left behind while adult family members lead the charge to prepare for an uncertain future. Jake and Miller's Big Adventure: A Prepper's Book for Kids is not only encouraging to help the children want to participate but also helps the parents and grandparents a like to embrace the adventure in prepping!

This comforting story is written from the perspective of both the slightly skittish dog, Miller and Jake, his owner who leads the way and prepares for every adventure!  As they prep, their imaginations take them far, but that's okay because this helps them to better prepare.  From bug spray to water, Jake and Miller are prepared for just about everything! And don't forget that important can opener.

Jake and Miller's Big Adventure: A Prepper's Book for Kids is a short book that is easy for elementary school age children to read, but it's also short enough to be a great read-a-loud at bed time or nap time.  We feel pretty sure this might even become a great show-and-tell book for school! How cool is that?  Your kids can help inspire others!

The author, Bernie Carr ( who also authored the national bestseller: The Prepper's Pocket Guide: 101 Easy Things You Can Do to Ready Your Home for a Disaster) spends time on things that kids really would consider when they set out on an adventure.  And even though the characters may 'prepare for the worst' - Jake's outlook is always hopeful and it helps to calm some of his dog's fears.

After all, isn't this what we want to do with our children, calm their fears, equip them to be well prepared and all the while, not forget that this can be a fun journey!

Enter the giveaway below - this is an Pinteresting Week for our giveaway so get your copy/paste fingers ready! :)

Join us next week for another great book review and giveaway!
