Halloween Book ~ Where's My Mummy?

I was sent Where's My Mummy? to review just in time for Halloween this year.   Written by Carolyn Crimi and illustrated by John Manders, this book is just spooky enough for your little ones.   With a repetitive nature, it is easy for young ones to follow along the story and quickly learn the words.

My favorite part of the book?  The illustrations.  They are just beautifully done, just a bit creepy in the good old Halloween fashion, but not too scary that kids will not enjoy.

Book Description ~

This gently spooky read-aloud treat is also a satisfying bedtime book — sure to delight the youngest reader on many a deep, dark night.

Little Baby Mummy wants just one more game of hide-and-shriek with Big Mama Mummy before bedtime. The night is deep and dark, full of friendly creatures that click their clacky teeth and whoosh past on flippy-floppy wings. But who will comfort Little Baby Mummy if a small, scritchy-scratchy someone gives him a scare? Big Mama Mummy, of course! Fresh, comical illustrations complement this everso- slightly suspenseful story with a satisfying ending.
  • Reading level: Ages 4-8
  • Hardcover: 32 pages
  • Publisher: Candlewick; 1 edition (July 28, 2009)
  • Language: English
Your child will truly enjoy this Halloween tail.  All kids will relate to Baby Mummy not wanting to go to bed.  Baby Mummy starts off his game in the cemetery, only to have a visitor come out and tell him to go to bed.  Saying he's not scared, he ventures off into other scary places.  Baby Mummy meets a variety of scary creatures without showing any fear.  

It's only when the most un-scary creature crosses his path does Baby Mummy call out in fear for his mummy.

I honestly get a kick of this story every time I read it.  Both  my daughters thought it was cute as well.  Retails for only $7.99 at Amazon.

Acting Out Game from Playroom Entertainment ~ Great game for Tweens

Picking toys is not always an easy task for parents, relatives and friends.  There is a toy website called ebeanstalk, dedicated to selecting good, safe learning toys.  There are several ways to browse including ages like  5 year old toys.

BUT they need help from moms like me to help pick the toys. The toy they sent is called Acting Out from Playroom Entertainment, who makes great educational toys

Here is the deal on this toy ~ my girls absolutely loved this game!  From the website ~ Acting Out is the pajama party game for girls who don't have stagefright! A totally, socially interactive game for tween girls, Acting Out is a fun, self-confidence building game that asks players to see if they can perform random routines and scenarios. Some actions include acting like a supermodel in a photo shoot or sounding like a bratty kid in front of the babysitter. The next step in the game is a silly scheme that has players acting like a supermodel and a bratty kid at exactly the same time! If your BFFs can stop laughing long enough to guess what you're doing, you win. That's Acting Out!

My girls have been having so much fun playing this game. With them being 8 & 12 they are the perfect ages for the game.  Not only is the game fun at slumber parties, they have been playing it with just the two of them as well.  You can play the game per the instructions or make up new games with the cards.  My girls have had a ball with this game.

They gave this game 5 stars, and I agree with them! 

Disclaimer ~ Ebeanstalk sent me the Acting out game for review purposes.  No payment was received for this review.  They are my honest opinions.
