Just a couple of weeks ago I first told you about Will Stroet and his upcoming concert in Toronto to showcase his newest CD “Just Imagine/Imagine.”  You can check that out HERE.  Well, that concert, being held on Sunday October 27th at the Assembly Hall is just one week away and to celebrate this we are giving away two copies of “Just Imagine/Imagine.”  You can still purchase tickets to see Will’s concert as well!

Will Stroet and his Backyard Band work well together to bring to life these charming children’s songs.  I listened to “Just Imagine” with both of my kids, aged four and ten and while their opinions varied they both loved the music!  William, the four year old, was dancing around the kitchen and making train noises while we listened to the first track, “Chuggada Choo.”  He thought the CD was “super cool” and “awesome!”  There is nothing sweeter then watching your kids enjoy something. :-)  Emily was taken with the second track, “Ella’s Umbrella” which I think had a bit to do with it’s similar title to a certain Rhianna song. :-)  Hey, whatever works!  Emily is an aspiring singing and she thought Will and the Backyard Band were “pretty great!”  We all enjoyed the sweet “Daddy’s Lullaby” and “Colour It.” 

The “Just Imagine” CD has had quite a workout in our house this past week and I know you and your little ones will love it too!  So how great is it that we can now offer you a chance to win one of two copies of Will Stroet’s “Just Imagine/Imagine” CD!  To enter please just head to my MapleMouseMama Facebook page, click on the Giveaway link and enter away.  This giveaway will end at midnight on Friday, October 25th.  It is open to Canadian residents age 18 and older.  Good luck!

Halloween is right around the corner; what are you getting dressed up as?

I am so excited to be able to share this really sweet giveaway opportunity with MapleMouseMama’s followers.  Up for grabs in this Back to School contest is the cutest book ever!  It is called “The Pocket Mommy” by Rachel Eugster and is presented by Random House!  Yes, the Random House!!  This adorable story is great for first timers heading off to school this fall ( just like my little man ) or even for those returning for their second, third or even fourth trip to the playground.  “The Pocket Mommy” will help your little scholar deal with the changes they will experience, including being away from their parent or caregiver all day. 

Everyone gets nervous at times and in “The Pocket MommySamuel is no different as he heads off to his first day in Kindergarten.  He wishes his mommy could tag along with him and so his mama does the next best thing and slips a pretend version of herself into Samuel’s pocket!!  Even though having his pocket mama there with him is pretty cool at first, things take a turn when mama tries to take over!  The end results will have your little ones laughing out loud. :-)  “The Pocket Mommy” is an endearing tale of growing up and letting go and is one sure to be a hit in your home.

Random House is generously giving away ten copies of “The Pocket Mommy” and this opportunity is open to Canadian and US residents ( excluding Quebec).  The contest will run from Friday, August 23rd and end on Tuesday, September 3rd.  To enter just simply fill out the Rafflecopter widget on my MapleMouseMama Facebook page HERE.  You will find that under the big, blue Giveaway sign at the top!
