Get Your Kiddo's Sleep Schedule Back on Track with Claessen's Kid'Sleep Trainer Moon!

**Complimentary products received in exchange for our honest review.  All opinions are ours and ours alone**

Do you struggle to keep your little one's in bed all night?  Claessens' Kids Kid'Sleep Moon might be just what you need to help them (and you!) get a full night's sleep!


This fun and colorful sleep trainer is designed to teach babies and young children how to self-regulate their sleeping patterns.  It's clever deign lets them know when it's time to get out of bed and when it's not based on if the sleeping or awake animal is illuminated. 


The Kid'Sleep moon offers the smart sunset "go to sleep" function and the smart moonset "wake up process", which gives kids a 10 minute warning for sleep time and get up time.  There are 3 settings for nighttime, nap and weekend, 4 choices of alarm sounds (or the choice of no alarm), and 4 levels of brightness to choose from.  


It is simple to understand too!  If the sleeping character’s picture is lit and you see the moon, stay in bed and sleep awhile longer.  At the time chosen by parents, the sun rises and the sleeping character is lit, it is okay to get up.  It also comes with four different lullabies to give little ones (and parents) sweet dreams all night long. What a great tool for Moms and Dads of (way too) early risers!  The Sleep Moon really is a cute and clever way to encourage a good night's sleep for the whole family.

You can find the Kid'Sleep Moon on Amazon

BookCase.Club: Monthly Subscription Box for Book Lovers! January Edition

**Complimentary products received in exchange for our honest review.  All opinions are ours and ours alone**

Maybe it's the teacher in me, but I am a believer that if you provide a fun assortment of engaging books to your young readers (and listeners:) you are instilling a love for reading early on.

BookCase.Club helps you do just that!


BookCase.Club is a one-stop monthly subscription service for book lovers of all ages. Each case contains handpicked books based on your preferred genre.  There are six monthly categories and two quarterly categories to choose from: Paranormal Romance, Sci-Fi/Fantasy, Young Adult, Mystery/Thriller, Children’s, Romance, Military History and Cookbooks.  The Children's category recently got a lot more exciting!  It has been turned into Bookcase.Club Kids and the categories have gotten a lot more specific.  More about that at the end of this post:)

Here is an example of a Bookcase.Club Kids box:


Take a look at our fun books:





As you can see, our box included four really great hardback books that my kiddos loved!

We also received a cute little January-themed activity page with our books:


The new division of Bookcase.Club is Bookcase.Club Kids.  Each #BCCKids case comes with three handpicked children's books, chosen to ignite the imagination and inspire creativity.   Bookcase.Club Kids is broken down into 5 sub categories based on age: Newborn-2 years, 2-4 years, 4-6 years, 7-8 years and Pre-Teen.  We are super excited to try out these fun new categories in the months to come:)

A subscription to BookCase.Club starts at $9.99 + $5.00 s/h per month which is a pretty good deal for books specifically curated to your interests.  Plus, each month, BookCase Club partners with Books For Keeps, and donates one children's book for every active subscription.  Books For Keeps aims to place books in the hands of children who are least likely to have access. This program gives 12 books to every child served just in time for summer. The goal: to keep up their reading achievement outside of school.  

BookCase.Club is definitely our favorite book subscription service...we've never been disappointed by the quality of the books we receive:)

Children's Book Series Review: Tales of Sasha- Books 1 and 2

**Complimentary products received in exchange for our honest review.  All opinions are ours and ours alone**

little bee books has some big news! They just released a brand new chapter books series called Tales of Sasha. Perfect for fans of My Little Pony, Tales of Sasha stars Sasha, a little horse with a BIG secret and her best friend Wyatt as they embark on a magical journey to learn about Sasha’s past.



The first two books in the Tales of Sasha series were published on January 3. In Tales of Sasha: The Big Secret, readers are introduced to Sasha and Wyatt, kindhearted and spirited young horses that live in Verdant Valley. Sasha has always felt a bit different than the other horses. For starters, she looks nothing like her two older sisters, who are black and brown while Sasha is pale gray—except for a small white patch on her back. Whenever Sasha’s patch begins to itch and sparkle, she is overwhelmed by the urge to soar. When she tells her parents how she feels they confess that they found Sasha wrapped in a golden blanket years ago with a note that read “Please keep Sasha safe until we can see her again”. Sasha is shocked and decides to go on a quest to find her birth parents and takes Wyatt along on the adventure where they soon discover that she is no ordinary horse.

Book Two, Tales of Sasha: Journey Beyond the Trees chronicles the quest that Sasha and Wyatt embark on to solve the mysteries of Sasha’s past, leading them beyond the Verdant Valley and into the forest. Will Sasha learn where she came from and meet horses that are just like her?


With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, little bee chapter books are perfect for beginning readers age 6-8.


A, who is 10, loved these two books!  Her review is below:

"Tales of Sasha books are easy to read and they are funny! I would recommend these books to girls ages 6 and up.  If you like horses and fairy tales, these books are for you!"

Based on the first two books, we think this series promises to be a good one.  
In March little bee books will be releasing another chapter book series called Ella and Owen, starring twin dragons who couldn’t be less alike, and we can't wait!
