What you need:
Strawberry Shortcake Roll
What you do:
1) Cut up the Strawberry Shortcake Roll into three equal pieces
2) Poke a bamboo skewer through the pieces
3) Freeze on a cookie sheet for two hours
I found that the Strawberry Shortcake pieces fell apart when I tried to poke a skewer through them. It works just as well if you cut them up and lay them on the cookie sheet without putting skewers through them. You can even just freeze them whole if you want.

The Adventures of Snip in Oregon
Author: Betty S. Moir
Snip is half poodle malamute and half husky dog, but he looks just like a shaggy black sheep dog. Snip and his family live in the Northwest during the 70's. Together with his loving family, Jim Jr., Heather, and John, Snip goes on lots of fun adventures. Each chapter gives us an example of love, friendship, excitement, and truly shows that dogs really are mans best friend. Children will enjoy reading this book over and over again. There are wonderful color illustrations that will captivate children. While younger children may not be able to read it themselves, they will love having it read to them, and older children will enjoy reading it either alone or with somebody. Whether you bring Snip and his family into your home on a rainy afternoon, a cold snowy day, or right before bedtime, you will be glad that you took the time to read this book.

Fairy Hunters, Ink.
Author: Shelia A. Dane
If you are looking for modern day fairy stories to read to your kids (or to enjoy yourself), then look no further. Fairy Hunters, Ink. is one you will want to read again and again. Shelia Dane is one of the few people that are able to correctly capture magic and put it on the page. Fairy Hunters, Ink. is a book older kids could read to themselves, and a book that younger kids would enjoy read to them. There are a lot of illustrations that kids will love to look at. My favorite illustration is of the button fairy. Whether you know it or not, fairies are everywhere, and this book tells you where they are, and what kind of mischief they get in to. Spark some creativity in your child's mind by introducing them to fairies. All it takes is this book.
Want a chance to win Fairy Hunters, Ink.? Simply leave a comment telling me what your favorite book as a child was, or what book you and your child(ren) like to read together. Please be sure to leave a way for me to contact in your comment! I will pick a winner using random.org on August 13, 2009 (my birthday!!!) and will then contact the winner.
