Doodling and Activity Books That Are Smart & Fun From Laurence King Publishers + A #GIVEAWAY

My Monster Bubble Writer Book is an activity book containing 144 pages that will inspire and encourage creativity with both words and drawing. This book will teach you to create cool, fun lettering from monster-inspired scripts to patchwork letters. There are loads of fun things to make, like posters and cards. Kids can use bubble writing to write letters and play games, create their own comics and do lots of other cool stuff. Along the way, members of the Bubble Writer Gang appear to show their own special monster alphabets and offer tips and hints throughout the book, including how to invent monster characters. It is monstrously good fun! 

The 411:
I love anything that can teach my artsy daughter to push her capabilities and maybe inspire her to take her art to another level. My Monster Bubble Writer definitely inspired me to try my and at a different way to write at school. We have a dry erase board in the classroom that greets the parents who drop off their kids and has a little notice about what we plan on doing. For the past two days I have changed the way I write on the board. I used big, colorful blocky letters with hair and eyes and not only are the parents taking notice but so are my 2 year old students. I think this may help them start to learn some more letters. I cannot wait to make some monster alphabet index cards for them over the weekend.

The 411:

I love the look of this book. It does feel like a scrapbook. There are 224 pages of nature inspired activities.

The books has you looking at nature in a whole new way. Everything I used to think about as a young child is here. Leaves, animals, pinecones, pebbles, shells, trees and more. I love nature and used to take time to really enjoy the world around me. In fact, even in my 30s I remember someone saying "I just see snow but you see the flowers trying to survive in it" to me. This was before kids and I try to find that passion once in a while but have to make a conscious effort to stop and see.  Hopefully this book will remind you to stop and look and really see the world around you.

This week I did leaf printing with my preschool class because of this book. I hope to sit down and do some of the activities in this book over the weekend especially these pages.

 This book is great for nature lovers, doodles, thinkers or anyone who loves to draw.
