When I started playing with marshmallows in 2010, I did lots of research to find anything and everything that related to marshmallows. I was surprised to find there were no children’s books that included marshmallows.
Fast forward four years…. I finally found one and it is everything I wanted it to be like!!
Marshmallows Galore is written by Mrs. Donna Mae and illustrated by Brandon Fall.
And guess what?!?! She self-published it!!
You know that earns brownie points with me 🙂 because I totally understand the amount of dedication, time, energy and monetary investment that requires. She told me that it had always been a dream of hers to publish a children’s book and one day she just said, “it’s time and I’m just going to do it.”
This book isn’t only incredibly cute but it also has a beautiful message.
Oh, and did I mention it it’s written in poem form and every line rhymes?! Love it.
This whimsical story is about a young boy named Charlie who suddenly wakes up to giant marshmallows falling from the sky.
He teaches us how to be self-less, compassionate and giving with those around us. This
Mrs. Mae has created a “Marshmallow Pledge” that children can take at her events and earn their very own badge.
Here’s a little boy at one of her book signings at Barnes & Nobles taking the pledge.
How freakin’ cute is this?!
She was kind enough to send me a copy so I could review the book and read it to my boys.
The illustrations are so bright and fun that it immediately captivated their attention.
They asked daddy to read it twice!
I love every page of Marshmallows Galore! Brandon Fall really did an amazing job.
This illustration is awesome…. This is exactly how I imagined the KRAFT Jet-Puffed Marshmallows factory being like when I was a kid hahaha.
You can purchase a copy of Marshmallow Galore on Amazon HERE.
But …… I have a surprise for you!!
I’m so in love with this book that I am thrilled to be able to giveaway a copy to one of my readers. Woohoo!!!
