BBAW Day #5 - Last giveaway!

My last giveaway for Book Blogger Appreciation Week is for two books (one winner receives both), courtesy of Hachette Group. Both are geared toward parents and have really, really long titles.

If Your Kid Eats This Book, Everything Will Still Be Okay: How to Know If Your Child's Injury or Illness Is Really an Emergency by Lara Zibners: This is the book to reach for when your child collides with the coffee table and is bleeding from the scalp or has a fever at 3:00 in the morning. Zibners is an emergency room pediatrician (and also has an excellent sense of humor), so she knows when your child needs a trip to the emergency room. She covers all body parts and emphasizes prevention (while making it easy to determine whether symptoms are ER-worthy in the middle of the night. This is not a cover-to-cover book, but a handy, reassuring reference for parents (especially first-time parents).

Smart Mama's Green Guide: Simple Steps to Reduce Your Child's Toxic Chemical Exposure by Jennifer Taggert: This book empowers the parent looking to reduce exposure to toxic chemicals with practical advice on everything from selecting flooring to deciding what's for dinner. Recipes for nontoxic cleaning supplies are also included. If the tone is sometimes a bit on the alarmist side and the statistics and side effects make the reader's eyes start to glaze over, there are still excellent tips here. The sheer volume of toxic chemicals in the average household is overwhelming; readers will want to focus their energies on implementing small changes.

First comment never wins! Regardless, I'd love to win these. I've seen them both around but haven't managed to snag either. Thanks for the giveaway.

Thanks for another giveaway! My best parenting tip is to always have your kid try a bite/piece of food. It took several years, but one day, my dd looked at me and told me how much she loved my lasagna. Their tastes change as they mature as do ours! Whoever thought I'd love broccoli and asparagus so much now?

I always forget to leave my email address because it's in my profile. So I'm reentering my comment:
How fun - would love to read these. A parenting tip: trust your instincts. Simple and said often, but it's true!

+1 my tip would be to sneak diced up veggies in anywhere you can. Like when I make chili I cut up onions and mushrooms and put them in there. With the sauce being red my kids never know.

My parenting tip is to relax. Kids sense your stress and stress out themselves.

+1 Parenting Tip: Everyone has advice especially for a new mom. It's easy to be overwhelmed and confused (not to mentioned irritated! :) I decided to follow my heart and do what I felt was best for my child. I must have done okay because I have one that is 14 and one almost 6 nd they are thriving.
