Stacie from The Amazing Mess is offering this amazing giveaway for the Starting Cooking Kid Kit from Usborne Books!  I am a huge fan of Usborne books…for a number of reasons, including that they will replace damaged books for half price. (Even books that are read so much that they just fall apart…like the boys airplane book *ahem*).  I also love how to support friends who sell the books!  I am a former teacher, and therefore huge sucker when it comes to books.  Especially great quality, durable, and replaceable at half price books!!!  So here’s the dealio…

Just perfect for your budding chef, the Starting Cooking Kid Kit includes an apron, whisk, rolling pin, wooden mixing spoon, measuring spoons, and book.

Stacie has set up an e-Show just for you, my favorite readers, and is offering a FREE SHIPPING credit for orders over $50 (the credit will be in the form of a refund check mailed to you after your purchase).  Please use this link to get the credit (or shop at and click on the $5 Dinner Mom e-Show).  Please contact Stacie directly if you have any questions about ordering.

It’s not too early to be thinking about Christmas gifts, friends!  Not too early at all!!!

    My kids are really into the Thomas the Train book, Misty Island Rescue, right now. It changes every month or so though. The Very Hungry Caterpillar is an enduring favorite.

    I don’t think my kids have one favorite book – they love them all and they read them all the time!

  3. Molly Joly says

    Right now, it is a book called “There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bat” but I’m sure it will change within the month!

    Thanks for a great giveaway!
