Take a Ride with Sunny The Snail Mail #Review #GiftGuide

Image
I don't know about your house, but ours sure does love when mail comes.  I enjoy it to, unless it is a bill, but you know what I mean!  We have been lucky enough to have a sample of Sunny the Snail Mail sent to us for review and Savannah loves getting a weekly letter in the mail letting her know what Sunny has been up to!  It is a cute (and fun) envelope that has a letter in it, stickers and another treasure or two. Each letter tells of Sunny's adventure delivering mail to his animal friends and the things along the way.  The letters are fun and interesting, but also educational as well!  Perfect to build a love of reading at a young age and they get fun keepsakes as well!  (The latest for us included a postcard she could color along with her letter and stickers!)   FTC Compliant Review Policy:    The product(s) featured in this review were provided free of cost to me by the manufacturer or representing PR agency for the sole purpose of product testing.

Like I said, she has returned home from school many times missing something.  I can't say anything, because Broxton was the same way.  Still is, if I am telling the truth. I learned years ago that Labeling items worked great for us.  The thing with Mabel's Labels is they last.  I don't have to go writing in sharpie and then never being able to pass along items...  I just use a M

Self Care is something that needs to be taken seriously.  I know I have had several friends remind me through the year, You have to take care of yourself so you can take care of your family.  That means rest, relaxation and everything else.  When I saw that Mango Publishing had an amazing selection of books on this subject, I was excited to check it out!  I even had to share the one for teem girls with a friend of mine, ASAP!   She flipped through it and agreed, it was a relatable book, perfect for teens! Take a look at a small selection below, then head to their website to check them all out!  FTC Compliant Review Policy:    The product(s) featured in this review were provided free of cost to me by the manufacturer or representing PR agency for the sole purpose of product testing.
