New Yorkers Celebrate Summer Reading & Vote in Nationwide #BookBattle for NYC Kids to Win 100,000 Free Books #Sponsored

Did you know that by age 3, children from wealthier families have typically heard 30 million more words than children from low-income families?(AEC, 2010) That is such a huge difference right? One of the best ways to help little ones to develop such a vast number of words is by exposing them early on to age appropriate books & unfortunately in several cities around the U.S, kids live within book deserts and don't have access to adequate reading materials. This month the boys and I headed to popular NYC bookstore, The Strand to celebrate summer reading and the Soar with Reading Program. With one daily vote, through the Soar with Reading Program the public has the chance to vote in an online book battle which will reward the children of one city 100,000 FREE books

Back in the day I loved collecting Garbage Pail Kids trading cards, do you remember those? If not just humor me a sec, but if you were an 80s baby then I 'm sure you may have had a stack of these grotesque yet funny looking characters that were a crude spin-off of the Cabbage patch dolls. These days it's no surprise that my boys along with thousands of other lil' monsters around the world are really into "The Grossery Gang" an assortment of mini collectibles that kids are obsessed over. We couldn't wait to share the news that at the end of July Moose Toys’ The Grossery Gang announced the release of their first ever film, Putrid Power: The Grossery Gang vs. The Clean Team.
In Putrid Power , fans will be treated to a gripping story of The Grossery Gang taking on the new evil force known as the Clean Team. With Cheap Town now under the terrible threat of being cleaned up for good by the evil Vac Attack and his team of clean freaks, Putrid Pizza, Dodgey Donut and the rest of the gang must band together to fight the power of clean; to save themselves from getting mopped up by the baddies.
It kinda reminds me of the battle in my house where I'm trying defeat two messy, youtube watching zombies who leave food wrappers, stinky socks and trails of toys everywhere.

During school breaks I remember my mom would take my sister, brother and I to the library and we'd check out as many books that were allotted, typically more than we actually wanted to carry home and our dad proudly ordered us the full set of World Book Encyclopedia and we'd get lost in a world of imagination and history.
Being a mom who was an avid reader as a child, I knew that the day I'd have children of my own that I would spoil them with shelves of books very early on. My husband thought I was crazy to have subscribed to a book club for a baby, but sure enough CJ came home from the hospital with a shelf of books to get him through the first two years of life. Over a decade later and with another Lil' monster in the house, that shelf is bursting from the seams and filled with an array of books. Heck yes we've been fortunate to have access to so many pieces of literature but today there seems to be a vast number of areas around the U.S that have limited offerings of age appropriate books.
