Martha the Mouse – book contest extended
With the summer rays beating down on us there is little time to be on the computer and that’s a good thing. So, little time to check out all of the new contests! So…Martha the Mouse – Book Contest has been extended to September 15th, 2013! All the same rules apply. I just want you to enjoy your summer and your kids!
Here are all the details:
I LOVE sharing books and resources but I especially love sharing independent authors with all of you. I had the wonderful pleasure of sitting down with the very talented Karen Lang. We talked about her journey with Martha and I am so happy to have had some time to connect with her and share the same passion for writing and the creative process. It is my pleasure to share with you her wonderful series about a mouse named Martha. This series is a wonderful tool for children struggling with anxiety. We can never have too many tools when building up that tool box.
To help you build your toolbox Karen has been kind enough to offer one of the “Martha the Mouse” books as a give away. All you have to do is tell us about your favourite book – it can be anything that you’ve read or read to your children that have inspired and resonated with you. Words are such powerful tools to heal, comfort and bring us joy. So after you read her wonderful post make sure to send your entries to email@example.com before July 15th, 2013. Winner will be selected at random. Winner must live in North America.
I thank Karen for introducing us to Martha. I will let author Karen tell you more about Martha and her adventures.
Martha the Mouse by Karen Lang
A small, but powerful voice, of courage and self-discovery.
We are….who we want to be!
Wouldn’t it be great if there was a perfect solution to the challenge of shyness and social anxiety??
But very fortunately, there ARE many strategies, and ways, we can help our kids to manage their feelings of anxiety and shyness.
Martha the Mouse is a series of children’s books that began from observing the experiences and challenges of my own children, as well as the wisdom gained from my lifelong “management” of my own shyness.
There are 3 books in the series, each one addressing a new strategy or realization…
In a nutshell, Martha is an adorable and quirky little mouse, who bravely enters the realm of some of those worries and uncertainties that children (and even adults) sometimes experience.
She comes up with a unique strategy to help her gain a little more confidence, and she discovers how she can use her imagination to open up a world of creative fun and adventure.
AND….she also makes a discovery about herself……she begins to understand just how wonderfully unique she is. While she may “seem” the same as the other mice in many ways, she discovers just how many subtle things make her, (and each and everyone of us), just a little bit different than anyone else.
She is now a mouse on an adventure!!
