I am hosting a giveaway in partnership with Scholastic! The Mommy Island is not responsible for prize fulfillment.
With the Booper starting at a new school this year, I've taken on the role of the librarian as a volunteer. He's attending a small public school where due to funding cuts they have to rely on volunteers to run the library. I love being able to help his school in general, but I was actually thrilled to have the chance to work in the library. This year I'm also organizing the school's annual Scholastic Book Fair! To say I've been obsessed with getting good books in kids' hands the last few weeks is an understatement. I've had the privilege of scouting out new books that our library needs, so when I was sent Hero Dog I checked to make sure our library had a copy too. Hilde Cracks The Case is written by 10-year-old Hilde Lysiak and is the first in a series from Scholastic Branches.
Are you looking for a device that you can pack to replace your clunky old laptop and do everything your cell phone can't? Then I'm excited to introduce you to the Nextbook Flexx! Just take a look at all it can do and then you can enter for a chance to win it too!

As the Booper gets older he's learning how to use more devices to play and learn. I love how technology can be used to even help him with reading. With all the great uses for technology I wonder how much access he has and how much others have to him. I want to know he's safe using the laptop, tablet, and even when he's accessing an app on our phones. We were excited to learn more about CUJO Smart Firewall and how it could help us keep our family safe while online.

We are big fans of Nick Jr. in our house. Both of my kids love watching all the shows, and I love seeing the great character building story lines like the ones in Shimmer and Shine. Although Shimmer and Shine do make mistakes, they are always finding ways to fix them and solve problems to help their friends. One thing we try to teach the Booper is that it's alright to make mistakes, but when you see you've made one you need to do your best to fix it. Check out their latest DVD and enter for a chance to win it below!

I'm not sure if everyone feels this way, but my family seems to be dirt magnets especially the Booper. At seven years old it seems that the second he steps outside he has mud smeared on some part of his body. Our back door leads into our kitchen, and the kitchen seems to be our hub for all the activity in our house which means it's the grungiest room of the house. I like that feeling I get right after cleaning the kitchen, when I clean the kitchen I feel like our whole house is improved. Little Miss is always playing around my feet she's crawling, rolling, and pushing around trucks and choo-choo trains left from the Booper. When I clean our floors I want to know the cleaner I've used isn't leaving behind something more harmful than the dirt. We were excited to try out Charlie's Soap and put it to the test against our family's dirt!

I received this product for free from Smiley360 in exchange for my honest review. You can join Smiley360 here!
Toddlers are busy. Our little miss is constantly on the go finding new ways to play with toys and playing with most everything except her own toys. Ever notice how much fun a toddler can have with an empty box? She keeps me on my toes, and it's exciting to watch her grow. These days she learned to say all kinds of new words like, "eat", "cup" and "juice" her vocabulary seems to be exploding over night. Verbal or not, toddlers communicate what they want, and she loves drinking Mott's For Tots Juice.

I was not compensated for this post. The Mommy Island is not responsible for prize fulfillment.3-2-1 Framboise is THE Premier European baby Clothing Subscription box. This fun box is ready to bring your little one some amazing clothing straight to your home direct from Europe. Founder Celine Hakoun had the fun idea to start this line of boxes when her son was born. Family and friends from Europe were sending her boxes filled with awesome clothes she'd never seen elsewhere. Fun, comfy, and practical. Why couldn't all parents in the US get these care packages filled with clothes, too? 3-2-1 Framboise was born!

This post was developed in partnership with Similac. All opinions are my own.
As a second time mom, I'm still amazed at how different Little Miss is from her brother. I figured having some experience under my belt at this whole "parenting" gig the second time around would be a breeze. If our Sassy Pants toddler has taught me anything it's that she is her own individual with her very own way of doing everything, including meal time. From the beginning, she has been a happy eater so getting her to eat has never been the problem. Having fast, nutritious options for her little hands is the key.

I scream, you scream, we all scream for Ice Cream! Did you know July is Ice Cream Month? Now that's a holiday I want to celebrate! Growing up my favorite flavor of ice cream was always chocolate, I rarely tried new flavors. As an adult, I still like to stick with the flavors I know I like, but occasionally I will risk it and try something new. July is my birthday month and national ice cream month, I think it was meant to be! All this sweetness really makes me want to party. Thirty-One Gifts was ready for ice cream month with their delightful limited-time collection Sweet Sprinkles. I'm excited to introduce you to their new design and bring you the sweetest giveaway from Thirty-One Gifts!
