William & Kate A Royal Fairytale Book Giveaway! ***CLOSED!!!***

***CLOSED!!!***



William & Kate A Royal Fairytale (about a Prince finding his Princess) Book
Anne Price
Tamara Henderson
Hardcover storybook
24 pages
Ages 3 and up
Price: $5.95


This book is published by Piggy Toes Press. They publish books I am sure most of you have seen before, and probably do not even know it.
For instance, I own the disappearing die cut book 10 Little Ladybugs. It used to be Giana's favorite but of course, now it is Devonny's. I never throw anything away. It's adorable in that it has a smooth flowing narrative and the little ladybugs disappear one by one to the last page. You have to read it to understand how super cute it is. Just wanted to mention that. And they sell it too, for 10.95.

Also, there is another book similar to that, called No More Diapers!, that I requested to review, it's almost exactly like the 10 Little Ladybugs, except instead of ladybugs- it's diapers.. until there are no more. (Insinuating baby doesn't need diapers.) Yes, that's a little further down the line, but time ticks away quickly. A year passes before you know it. But maybe we can review it for them in the future, you never know. No More Diapers! Is also only 10.95.

I also eyed another book of theirs about being green. I am always trying to find more ways to educate the children to preserve earth for our futures. It is called Choose To Recycle. It is only 7.95. It is for younger kids it's die cut + touch & feel!  It's written & illustrated by Elizabeth Bewley & Miriam Latimer. It's only 10 pages long and aimed at children ages 2 and up. You can buy any of these books now + Use code Freeship! (For free shipping naturally!)


So I ended up with William & Kate instead. I was very pleased though. It's so cute. A little piece of history for Giana later when she is older. Funny, I try to shield her from adult media, so she was tickled pink to find that there really are Princes and Princesses. (SHE MADE ME GOOGLE PICTURES FOR HER!) Silly girl!

Note: The pictures below of the actual Prince and Duchess are not included in the book. I just thought they were nice pictures relevant to the post. There are no actual pictures of them in the book. Instead all hand drawn cartoon-ish adorable illustrations of them instead. I just wanted to clear that up, in case there is any confusion.



I was sent the William & Kate book and it's even autographed! Cute! The winner's copy will also be autographed. It is absolutely precious and beautifully illustrated. The pictures are detailed and cute in a childlike way. It tells the actual story of the two, and how she wasn't a princess, but just a normal girl. How she blossomed into a princess.... it is inspiring to little girls everywhere. That no matter where you come from, you can be whatever you set your mind to be. She won the hearts of England, but more importantly the Prince's heart! Giana made me read it to her everyday the first week, and three times the first day it arrived. She can read it herself, but it's snuggle time when the books come out! It is so cute when I get things to review for the blog. She knows they are usually for her and she gets so excited when she is right! Sometimes I tell the PR to put her name on it, because I usually send her to check the mail. Her smile when she comes in, makes all the work I do on this blog worth it x 1,000,000 . She especially loves the playful little punch out finger puppets of all the characters included in the back cover.

Want to win this book? Be sure to read the red instructions below so you know the rules of the giveaway!


Here is an image from the book. Similar? Maybe not, but definitely appealing to children.
