NEW Children's Picture Books from Peter Pauper Press {+ Giveaway - Ends 8/14}

The featured product was provided free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% the opinion of the Coupon Savvy Sarah family.”


Children's books hold a very special place with my family. They are a way to bond and connect with our children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews. They are also special keepsakes when cared for over the years so they may be passed on to future generations. I love being able to pull out picture books that were mine, and even my parent's books, to read to Rose and her cousins. I always write something special to personalize the book for the child I am gifting the it to so they may look back on it later with special memories (I am a proud Auntie to 10 nieces and nephews by blood and countless others because they are special to us). I was thrilled to find out I had picture books heading my way for me to not only review, but give away a set of them to a lucky reader!

Here is a little more information about the books we were sent to review from Peter Pauper Press:

All the Lost Things by Kelly Canby
Olive is the only spark of color in her otherwise drab world, but her city’s sour disposition never crushes her resilient spirit. One day, as she’s out for a walk, a mysterious noise from a nearby manhole piques her curiosity, leading her to an underground world full of boxes and boxes of the city’s lost things—from keys and dolls to dreams and courage. Inspired, Olive grabs a scoop of “memory” for her granddad, who always loses his glasses, some “eyesight” for her father, though he hasn’t completely lost his yet, and most important of all—a great big jar of “hope,” which she spreads across the city, bringing color and joy back to its occupants and showing young readers that even the smallest person can make the world a better place. With a combination of engaging art, playful language, and an uplifting message, this buoyant tale will delight readers of all ages.

No Yeti Yet by Mary Ann Fraser
On a snowy winter day, two brothers set out on a quest to find a Yeti. As they skate and sled their way across the landscape—unwittingly helped along by the Yeti they seek—the eldest brother patiently answers question after question, teaching his younger brother everything he knows about the mysterious monster. Parents will recognize the unique relationship between an older and younger sibling in the boys’ endearing banter. The short and snappy dialogue will keep young readers engaged to the very end, when the boys finally come face-to-face with the furry creature and an unexpected twist turns the littlest brother into the teacher, as he befriends the Yeti and shows his frightened big brother that it’s not really a monster after all. Parents will appreciate the underlying message that you can’t judge a book by its cover, while children will delight in reading this charming tale all year long.

Mina’s White Canvas by Hyeon-Ju Lee
Mina is tired of her dreary, colorless world, so she sets out with a magical crayon to make her mark on its blue and white canvas. Along the way, Mina meets several forest creatures who need her help: she uses her crayon to draw a ladder so Grandfather Woodpecker can climb down from his tree, creates a door for Mr. Bear to escape his cave, and makes socks for Miss Frog so that she can join in the winter fun. By the end of the day, Mina has not only brightened the gloomy forest with her kindness and creativity, she’s forged new friendships and formed lasting memories. Lee’s gentle story shows young readers the power of thinking outside the box, and their own boundless potential to make the world a happier place. Parents will love reading this uplifting tale with their own artistic children on gray winter days, encouraging them to use their talents to re-imagine the world and connect with the people around them.

Our Thoughts:
Each of the three hardcover books is beautifully illustrated and filled with vibrant colors which held my nieces and nephews attention very well! I love how Mina's White Canvas encourages children to use their imagination and No Yeti Yet and All The Lost Things are two stories about love - whether it is healing love or brotherly love - they both are inspiring tales and all the books are ones I would suggest taking a look at to add to your collection!
