Want It? Win It! Wednesday: Razzle Dazzle Ruby


I am so excited for today's giveaway!
Being a former 2nd grade teacher,
I am a total children's lit junkie.
No joke.
My friend Heather and I used to have a competition
to see who had the most picture books in their library.
She's still teaching, so I'm sure she's surpassed me by now.

Thanks to the peeps at Scholastic I got to preview a
new book that is so cool!

By Masha D’yans
Ages 4-8

A little about the author:

Her line of greeting cards, clothing, and home d├ęcor, featuring her alluring artwork, are sold at Target, Macy’s, Urban Outfitters, Nordstrom, as well as other major retailers and smaller specialty shops. Originally from St. Petersburg, Russia, and classically trained at the St. Petersburg Academy of Art Lyceum and subsequently at Cooper Union in New York City, she now lives and works in Manhattan. Razzle-Dazzle Ruby is her first book. Visit her at

It is seriously darling and Isabella loved it!!!
It came while her brother was at school,
so she got to enjoy it all by herself.
Plus, it's right up her alley with all sparkles, twirling, and spinning
that goes on in this fun, interactive book.

Isabella was enthralled from the moment she opened the book.
The sparkles had her at the first page.

Take a peek inside:

She loved all the pop-ups, spinners, and pulls.

I was worried that she wouldn't be able to
do them independently, but she didn't
have any problems at all :)

Wow! That is a cute video and such a teaser... now I really want the book! I wanted it before because I am always looking for interactive book to help my sons find reading more interesting. The snowball rolling part of the movie was where I got super excited to have the book in my hands! Thanks for the opportunity to win it.
