VTech Voices ~ Family Reading Night & Giveaway!!!

That's right everyone.
This week being part of the VTech Voices team is allowing me to bring you a cool giveaway.
Of course, you are going to have to do a bit of work to get it.


First let's see what we are playing for:
"OOOH! AAAH!"
I'm not kidding when I say this VTech Reader is freaking awesome!
Not only will you win one of those, you will get a "game" with it.
Woo hoo!


Here's what you need to do.
You need to come up with your very own Family Reading Night.
It's where the whole fam (or as many are at home) sit down & read together.
Sort of like a Family Home Evening for those LDSers in the crowd (HOLLA!).


I did this with my lil guy & my nephew just last night.
We layed on my bed and they each took turns holding the reader & playing the games that come after the story. It got a little confusing for a bit because, well let's face it they are almost 4 & 4.5yrs old so they are learning about not yelling out answers if the other is asked the question. Sigh.


Both of the boys love this reader. My lil guy will ask to always read it.
This week we were able to read "Dora the Explorer: Dora & the The Little Pigs". What a fun story!!! Not to mention the games are extremely educational but the kids never know it.


I've said it before, reading comprehension is high on my list. I want to make reading/learning fun & VTech has managed to capture that 1,2,3!


So, if you want to enter, here's what ya gotta do:

1. Leave me a comment telling me about your Family Reading Night, where you had it, who participated, how did it go. That sort of thing.


2. Become a follower.

3.  Tweet this giveaway, leave me a link to the tweet. Make sure to use #v.reader hashtag.


Really, that's it.
Just 3 ways.


Also, make sure I have a way of getting in contact with you. If I don't & you win, you'll never know!!


Ok, go!

Giveaway ends 7/30 @ 8pm est.

*This giveaway is sponsered by The Motherhood & VTech. I did receive a free reader & games to review.  All opinions are my own*

My son regularly has a family reading night with his dad and me... We sit together and read a story.. Occasionally we would narrate it together..or encourage him to try read a few words himself.. or give him a chance to ask questions...or we question him..sort of in the attempt to improve comprehension skills..
it is fun

My kids and I had a Family Reading Night the other night (we actually do this a lot though). We read a couple of books from the library - one of them was Fancy Nancy, the other was Walter the Farting Dog Goes On a Cruise...not kidding and if you haven't read it, pretty funny. My kids LOVED it of course :)

We read nightly for at least 15 minutes. My son loves it when we read and I really enjoy it as well.

For the past 2 nights, my 3 year old son and I have read some of his library books together before he has to clean up for bed. His 11 year old sister and 14 year old brother have been in the room and often comment on the things my 3 year old says about the story.

I would read to my daughters before bedtime, and ask them questions about the story afterwards.

Every night before bedtime we sit down as a whole family and read to the kids (ages 4 & 2). Then my son goes to bed and we read some more with my daughter until it's time for her to go to bed as well.

During the day, we also have family reading time, minus the Hubby who's at work. The kids and I lay with some pillows on the floor and I read my own book while they page through their's.

We had our family reading time at the kitchen table! Myself, my husband and our 3 boys ages 8, 2 and 11 months participated. The 8 year old did most of the reading and the 2 year old loudly repeated most of what he read. Overall we had a great experience as long as we continued to give the baby food!!

We had a family reading night a few times at our home. We were reading all kinds of Disney books together in our son's playroom. He learned a lot and had so much fun, especially with the sound books.

We had our family reading night Wednesday night. My daughter read Twilight, my son read one of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, I read a book called A Brother's Journey & my husband read a Star Trek novel. After 1 hour of reading, we took time to discuss the parts of the books we had read & to suggest it to those who we thought would like to read it.

Smurfs: The Lost Village & Psst...a lightening fast Giveaway too!

Smurfs: The Lost Village is coming out April 7th.  That's this weekend.  
I don't know about you but I remember when the Smurfs first appeared on the scene.  Way back in the 80's...that's early 80's mind you.  I think I just gave away my age.  Yes, I am that old I remember the original gang.  I even had little Smurf toys.  One was a police officer.  That was because my dad was a police officer.
Enough reminiscing, I am so excited that the Smurfs have stood the test of time and the my child gets to experience them.  At 10 years old, he still likes them.  His favorite Smurf...Papa.  So we are definitely heading to opening weekend to see Smurfs: The Lost Village. 
Let us see what this film is all about:
In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting and thrilling race through the Forbidden Forest filled with magical creatures to find a mysterious lost village before the evil …

Nessie & Me...a Review & a #Giveaway

Need a cute movie for the little ones to watch, this is the one.
Cheeks & I watched it, we liked it, albeit a bit young for my 10 year old boy.  I would say good age range for kids is maybe 3 to 7.

Here's a bit about the movie:

The Loch Ness Monster has been back in the news following a recent sighting and resurfaced pictures, just in time for the release of family movie “Nessie & Me,” which is now available on DVD & VOD, courtesy of Vision Films!
When 9-year-old Jamie moves to a beautiful lakeside village, he befriends a grumpy old sea captain who tells him of the lake’s mythical creature named Nessie. The townsfolk don’t believe him, but Jamie wonders if Nessie can be the solution to save the town from a greedy mogul who is buying up land around the lake… if only he can prove that Nessie is real. But sometimes it takes a little bit of magic, and with the help of a mermaid, a treasure map and an unlikely friendship with Nessie the Sea Monster, Jamie and the people of Lak…
