The Flip Book review and giveaway ends Jan 1


We love reading in this house. We do bedtime stories everyday as well as 20 minutes of homework reading for the oldest three. I do a bedtime story in each room which means there are alot of stories in just one week lol. I love finding new fun books for the kids that will keep them entertained as well as help them learn something. Plus with different ages and different levels of reading skills I have alot of books. My hardest is finding something for my 7 year old who is about a full grade level in reading and at our school they don't have reading help for kids above 1st grade which is dumb. I try and use the books that are for my little ones with small words and only a few words but the only problem is she memorizes them so she don't learn to read anything. So when I heard about The Flip Along Fun Book I was intrigued. It seemed like a great book for her to learn to read and we could change it up everyday so she is not memorize the book.

The Flip Along Fun Book was written by Michael Dowling and Illustrated by Sarah Buell Dowling. Kids will be introduced to rhyming, numbers, colors, addition and logical thinking with this awesome book. So not only will they be learning to read they will be learning other things without even knowing they are learning them. That is awesome.

The Flip Along Fun Book is separated into three sections with nine pages for flipping in each section. So a total of 27 pages in a way. Each page has different animals that each display different numbers and a different scenario of the story. First you pick which first section page you want, then the second section of the story, and then you look for the last page that incorporates both of the animals. When the last page is matched up, the numbers will add up correctly as well. So it would be something like this, "The 3 animals wanted to fly their red kites so they went to the park. Page 1. They met 2 dogs at the park who were playing with a yellow Frisbee. Page 2. Then the 5 animals had a picnic together on a blue blanket and had lots of fun. Page 3." Don't mind my crappy story telling this is why they are the writers and I am not ha ha. Anyways you get the point right? They learn reading, then adding, and colors. They even learn logic and story telling.

This is a great way for your children to spark their imagination and their learning skills without fighting them to do it. Honestly they will love learning and have a blast with this book. All my kids love it and they are ages 11, 9, 7, 5, 3, and 1. So it is great for all ages. This would make a great gift also!!

The Flip Along Fun Book is giving one away to one of my lucky readers. Awesome!

I try to sing songs to help my little one to learn. It's pretty effective for a toddler.

We don't have children yet, but I know my brother and his wife have flash cards for their son. And they also read to him a lot.

I play a dice game with our kindergartner to teach him basic math skills. He loves the game and sometimes it's hard to get him to stop

I use timer and set it for a certain amount of time and they can take a break so they know how much time they have left.

The only way my daughter learns is for me to get her daddy to help her. Her and her daddy are 2 of a kind.

Well my daughters not old enough to do homework or study but I do sit down with her while she eats for cue cards, and I involve learning with everyday activities, like getting her to name all the foods at the grocery store and their colours.

My child is 20m and obsessed w/Elmo so if I want him to pay attn, I just buy a learning product w/Elmo on it. He already knows his Abc's and even recognizes the letters out of order all thanks to my persistance and Elmo flashcards I found at the dollar store! :) Jenprincess88 at aol dot com

I make my kids do their homework right after school and even have my preschooler work on alphabet worksheet while the big girls are working on their homework. Everyone does it at the dinner table so I know it is getting done and when it is done and checked they are allowed to have the same amount of screen time (either tv, video game or computer time) as they did working on homework.
