Snow Magic Book Review + GIVEAWAY

After 4 years of dedication, my mom recently published a book!  Amazing, right!?!

Anyone who knows my mom knows that she wears many hats and always has, one of them being in education. After a wonderful trip taking my nephew on his first adventure to the snow, she was inspired to write Snow Magic.

It is an adorable tale of a boy named Joe, who goes to the snow with his grandparents. He plays in the snow for hours making snowballs, sledding and building a snowman. Before leaving, he gathers up an ice chest full of snow to take home. In the morning, after having wonderful dreams of his adventures, he awakes to find a magical miniature snowman in place of his pile of snow. It is a very sweet story, sure to melt any grandparents heart.

My mom was determined to convince a dear friend and teacher, Kathy Stillwell, to illustrate the book for her. Kathy, used her creative talents to draw a whimsical picture story to follow this adorable tale. After years in the making, the two have been able to celebrate the book's completion with a book signing at the local bake shop, Cupcake Magic. They also recently spoke at a Christian Women's luncheon sharing how they made their dream a reality.

The book is currently being sold in the Sacramento area and they are close to selling out their entire first run of printing. There are several other grandchildren who would also like a book, so there might be another in the making. We'll just have to wait for the next adventure and see!

Hooray!  It's a Giveaway!

Even though Snow Magic is currently only sold in in the Sacramento area, (1) lucky Houses, Couches & Babies' reader will have the chance to win a copy of the book, sure to melt anyone in your family's heart!

It looks like such an adorable book! My boys (ages 5 and 2) would love this. The oldest talks about going to the snow all of the time, so we're taking him to Mammoth next month.
