The Alphabet Glue e-zine is seriously cool fun!
I came across one of Annie's "Library Monday" posts on her blog, Bird and Little Bird, some time ago and it appealed to my book loving inner child in a big way. I've been avidly reading along ever since (all the while wishing I too lived in Vermont).
If you know me, then you know I am crazy for books. And if you know my kids, you know they are even crazier for books. We were delighted when Annie released her first e-zine, which combines both children's literature and crafting. My kids instantly jumped on board and found a new way to explore their love of the written word through all of the crafts and activities designed by Annie.
The second issue of Alphabet Glue has been just as much fun as the first! It will be loved by both older and younger kids! We took the book lists to our local library and stocked up on some good titles. Esme is loving all the mystery and fun of the Nate the Great books that Annie recommends.
Eila made her own secret picture messages using the e-zine's recipe for invisible ink.
We've been making books - mostly a simple accordian style, but the e-zine shows a fancier version of the books. My favorite title thus far is Esme's own "The Page Takes a Bath."
The girl's can't wait to assemble their own detective kits. Esme is particularly excited about making her own magnifying glass!
And I am really looking forward to making some story lanterns - sounds like a perfect summer Sunday afternoon project.
There is so much summer fun packed into this well crafted e-zine and Annie has generously offered to give
FIVE copies to blog readers here. Just leave a comment on this post to win. I'll close the giveaway on August 9 at 5PM mtn time.
You can find more information about both volumes of Alphabet Glue at Annie's blog, Bird and Little bird, and you can buy both issues there as well. You can also find out a bit more about Annie and her e-zines on OhDeeDoh where she was recently featured.
And the FIVE (randomly chosen) WINNERS are:
