August 2021 - My WAHM Plan

Coraline In Theaters One Night Only August 24th + Blu-ray/DVD giveaway

I can’t believe it’s been 12 years since Coraline was released. I can well remember how the movie trailer ads drew my girls in and how I as a mom of a then 6- and 10-year-old decided they were too young to watch Coraline. I’m glad I stood my ground because I later heard from some parents that the movie was too suspenseful for the younger kids. Now that I’ve got full-on adult daughters, I was only too happy to receive a copy of Coraline for my family to enjoy and your family can too! Read on for the giveaway details.

"Norman helps his good friend Audie work through her hurt feelings when she is picked last for a ball game. Little ones will learn that expressing their emotions is a great way to handle any problems life throws at them!"



My Thoughts:

I simply adore these books! I love how Norman is friendly, happy fellow. Someone who thinks of his friends and wants to help and be helped. I don’t want to pick a favorite book from this series, because they are all so good- but wen pressed by a family member, I chose Happy Clothes because who doesn’t love getting dressed up to help a friend celebrate their birthday!

The Takeaway:

Norman The Interested Cat Book Series will make a perfect addition to your children’s home library, or perhaps a teachers classroom. I’m gifting these to my daughter who is starting her first year of teaching as a kindergarten teacher. I think her students will adore Norman and friends.

The dog days of summer are upon us and while some are enjoying their last bit of summer by taking road trips and vacations, here in my town, school starts back tomorrow! If you are feeling a little frazzled from all the busyness this season brings, I’ve got a perfect way to relax and take a trip back in time as well. When last we Spoke movie is a wholesome and charming story set in a small southern town that I think is perfect for a family movie night.
