Here Comes Hortense! Book Prize Pack #giveaway

As a mom (that loves to read) to two children ages 6 & 4 who love to read, I am always on the look out for fun, clean, entertaining books that span their ages and genders.

Canadian author Heather Hartt-Sussman provides readers, young and old, with a gentle lessons in her books Nana’s Getting Married and Here Comes Hortense!

The feisty irrepressible Nana we met in Nana’s Getting Married is back.  And what could be more fun for a six-year-old than having your nana and her new husband take you to a theme park?  But the fun is spoiled when Nana and Bob announce that they’ve planned a surprise: they are going to be joined by Bob’s granddaughter, Hortense.  It turns out to be the worst surprise ever!  Nana shares her room with Hortense instead of her disgruntled little grandson.  She sings her special good-night song to Hortense.  She goes on all the scary rides with Hortense.  And, worst of all, Hortense has a special name for Nana.

My kids and I giggled through both books and we have re-read them repeatedly.  These books are perfect to snuggle up with on the couch, or in bed and spend some quality time reading together.  My son especially liked the pictures in the book (which are illustrated by Georgia Graham) of all the silly situations that take place.

Heather Hartt-Sussman also has another book called Noni Says No.  In this book a little girl learns to say no.  Something that I think a lot of us adults could learn too!  This book has been nominated for an Ontario Library Association Blue Spruce Award.  The winner will be announced on May 15.

You can find these books at Indigo, Amazon, Mable’s Fables and other locations worldwide.
