ABCs and 123s For Boys by Tom McLaughlin

 



ABCs and 123s for Boys
by Tom McLaughlin
Genre: Children's Picture Book


Pirates, Ninjas, and Dinosaurs Romp Through the ABCs!
Preschoolers will love the “ABCs and 123s for Boys” book and coloring book
 
It’s not Christmas “crunch time.” But, given your procrastination track record, MAYBE IT IS TIME to make some holiday decisions.

No, we’re not talking about picking the ugly sweater for your company’s “Zoom” Christmas party.
But if preschoolers are on your gift list, you can skip the Black Friday lines with a fun, new ABCs book that:
·         Falls into the category of “Aww, that’s adorable”
·         Qualifies as a “Stocking stuffer” and
·         Checks the box for “Buy this. We don’t want Little Johnny to fail preschool!”

If a preschooler is in your home, family, or circle of friends, ABCs and 123s for Boys is a great storytime addition. Kids will laugh and learn with this romp through the alphabet.  
ABCs and 123s for Boys brings the alphabet to life with dozens of entertaining characters. From ALEX the Alligator (an astronaut) to ZACK the Zebra (ziplining over the zoo), each letter features different boy’s name, fun rhyme, and scene.  

Picture Dr. Seuss meets Sesame Street,” says author Tom McLaughlin. “Each page of ABCs and 123s for Boys is wonderfully fun – featuring pirates and ninjas to sharks and dinosaurs.”
This clever, illustrated book makes learning the ABCs and numbers easy. There are hidden surprises on pages. (Look for ants sneaking away with food.) Kids will find and count the birds, fish, and animals. Plus, kids will love the surprise ending. You can personalize the story with your child’s name on the last page!

ABCs and 123s for Boys gives kids an extra serving of storytime fun. “Kids will love HANK the Hippo and the other characters,” adds McLaughlin. “It’s far more engaging than an ‘A is for Apple’ book. And when kids are engaged, they’re learning.”  




PLUS, if your child likes to color, break out the crayons! The new ABCs and 123s for Boys Coloring Book features jumbo-sized characters from the ABC book. Add a box of crayons with the books and you have a great Christmas gift.

ABCs and 123s for Boys and the ABCs and 123s for Boys Coloring Book can be found at Amazon and bookstores. They’re ideal for toddler, preschool, homeschool, daycare, baby shower, birthday, Christmas stocking stuffer, and grandson gifts. For other fun books, visit www.ABCsand123s.com.

Excerpt

One starry night,

When the sky was super bright,

Little Ari climbed into bed

And turned out the light.


I wonder what I’ll dream tonight.

What places will I go?

I guess until I close my eyes

I’ll never really know.”


What is a dream?” asked a voice

That came from down below.

Ari looked at the floor,

In shock. “Say it isn’t so!”


Pepper, was that you?

Did you just speak, for heaven’s sake?

Nah, you’re a dog!

I’m not dreaming yet. I’m still awake!”


Pepper looked at Ari

And tilted her head to the right.

Yep, I can talk!” said Pepper,

Giving Ari quite a fright.


First, Ari started screaming

And headed for the door.

Then she remembered, “Pepper’s my friend,”

And wasn’t afraid anymore.

The Frog at the Window by Scott Langteau

 

A Completely Wild Christmas Tale!

Children's Picture Book, Holiday Picture Book

Published: November 2020

Publisher: Shake the Moon Books



While Katy and her family spend a snowy Christmas away at Grandma's house, a cold and clever little frog jumps at the chance to move into their warm, empty home. Unfortunately, so does every other four-legged forest dweller in the area. With the perfect holiday vacation house overrun with guests, chaos quickly erupts until the group finds a peaceful solution in this holiday tale of tails. What begins as a break from the wintry woolly land transforms into an annual holiday tradition of kindness and generosity. The Frog at the Window is a Christmas tale with a message for every season!


Excerpt


Tonight was the very first storm of the year,

and surprising how much it had snowed.

The Randalls were packed and all ready for bed,

with plans to wake early and then hit the road.

 

"Now Christmas was only a few days away”,

thought Katy, relaxed by the tree.

How will we ever reach Grandmother’s house,

when it’s snowing so hard I can’t see?”


And then as she sat staring into the night,

through the blustery, snowy white fog-

there stood, in the cold window’s lower right edge,

a tiny, green, shivering frog.
