Flippy & Friends: FUN Books - Giveaway!

This giveaway is now closed. Thank you to all who entered. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ ossmcalc!

Ohhhh, if you could have seen the look on her face... My daughter's eyes lit up when she saw the books and plush character toys from Flippy & Friends. This adorable company sent over some of the cutest books we've seen for this review.

My daughter is in Kindergarten and can read. No, not just sight words. This girl can sound out words and read entirely on her own. We're so proud of her! She LOVES the sturdy board books from this company. That's saying a lot as she has a ton of books.

All of the books are colorful, adventurous and really playful. She constantly wants to read us her new favorite books from the Flippy & Friends series and we are definitely happy to listen! They're wonderful books with a great message of friendship, using your imagination and feeling good about yourself. You can be anything you want to be just like Flippy!

If you're looking to build a strong foundation for reading, these books would be the perfect way to start. You'll become a child again! Laugh, smile, play - these books will inspire you to get creative with your children.

This trilogy of board books is really neat. The last line of the first book is the title of the second book and so on. The first book starts off very simple and each book that follows adds more details and words. It's a great way to introduce reading to your little one. These books are full of silly fun!

You can purchase Flippy & Toadpole, On the Flippy Side and Through Flippy's Eyes through any bookstore including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Borders, Independent Bookstores to name a few.

Both of my children really enjoy Flippy Goes on a Road Trippy. This new hardcover book is fantastic.

I really love the color used in these books as well as the simple shapes. The illustrations in this book are vibrant, fun and eye-catching. The pictures really appeal to my 5 1/2 and 7 1/2 year old.

As if the books weren't enough, Flippy & Friends also offer their characters in soft stuffy toys! These are really the icing on the cake and would make excellent gifts. Get your Flippy Stuffy and Toadpole Stuffy here.

My daughter is also having a blast with the free coloring pages on their website offered here.

Flippy & Friends would like to offer one lucky reader a board book and Flippy Goes on a Road Trippy! Let their imaginations run wild with these amazing books. Parents - you'll feel like a child again, too!
