The Travel Adventures of Lilly P. Badilly: Costa Rica Review and Giveaway!

I love to read. My husband loves to read. We are hoping that Sara Rose is going to love to read. We love to sit together as a family and read. So when I was given the chance to review a children's book, I jumped at it!

If you have a child, you need this book. Talk about a fun time! Sara Rose and I just finished reading and listening to The Travel Adventures of Lilly P. Badilly: Costa Rica written and illustrated by Debbie Glade. It is silly and fun. It was a little long for Sara, but it would be perfect for ages 4 and up. Sara also seemed to really get a kick out of the CD.

The Travel Adventures of Lilly P. Badilly: Costa Rica is a children's book with accompanying CD. It follows the adventure of Lilly P. Badilly. Lilly P. Badilly is an plucky little piano-playing millipede who takes a journey with her grandparents. They go from their little house in Miami International Airport to the rainforest in Costa Rica. They have many adventures on their way to the rainforest. Lilly has many fears that she manages to overcome along her journey. She uses her music to help her overcome them. There are a number of catchy songs that correspond to the illustrations. And the illustrations are just gorgeous. It all works together to make a really fun and good time experience. We can't wait to see where Lilly goes next!

You can purchase the book here. And I STRONGLY suggest you doing it. You can see a few of the book pageshere.

One of my lucky readers will not have to buy it, since Debbie was generous enough to offer a copy of her book and CD for a giveaway.

I would read this book with my son. He fasinated by bugs now and having the main character be a millipede would be cool to him. Plus he would be learning about other places, traveling, animals and bugs without realizing it. Thanks for the chance to win!
