Pretty Please Press Books ~ Review and Giveaway

Pretty Please Press kindly sent four of their books for my kids and I to review. We were sent Kick Block Punch, Bella Basset Ballerina, PYNX, and The Scritchy Little Twitchell Sisters. Here’s a little bit of information about Pretty Please Press.

About Pretty Please Press from their website~

Pretty Please Press publishes children's books that are designed to be read aloud and talked about. Each book contains a message about character and values that helps parents and children think and talk about a variety of issues. Pretty Please Press was founded in 2001 by author Laura Aimee Garn, and is now led by publisher Vera Venturi.
Pretty Please Press also offers Character Building Lesson Plans and free educational downloads, including Vocabulary Building Cards and Concept Building Cards.

My Review of the books we received~

Bella Basset Ballerina and the Scritchy Little Twitchell Sisters were both written by Laura Aimee Garn.

The Scritchy Little Twitchell Sisters is a fun book for sisters. Both of my girls really liked it and could relate to the experiences of the book. It’s a fun story of two sisters and the challenges they have getting along. The girls in the story may squabble a lot, but in the end learn that life is no fun without each other.

Bella Basset Ballerina is a cute story of a basset hound who dreams of being a ballerina. The book teaches that through hard work and practice you can someday accomplish what you want to be. My girls really loved this book; they love ballerinas and all things dogs, so this was their favorite.

Kick Block Punch was written by Jacquie Hann. This is a story about a boy who wanted to be able to do karate without practicing. This book teaches children that practice makes perfect. In the end the character Sam learned that if you want to achieve something you must practice
PYNX was written by Jeffrey Greene. This was an interesting book if your kids like sci-fi and aliens. It’s a story of a creature from another planet and how she helped others. I would say the underlying theme is just because someone is different than you doesn’t mean you can’t like them or help them. My girls said this was a book for boys, but I would say that if your girls like sci-fi then they would like this book too.

Overall, I would say all the books are age appropriate for ages 5 and up.
The Scritchy Little Twitchell Sisters has a lot of words and is a bit of a tongue twister, but was fun to read.
