That's (Not) Mine Book Review & Giveaway #WIN

A Rup Life received product to facilitate this post. This post may contain affiliate links.

One of the biggest parts of our homeschool days with my littlest is reading good books.  We love to explore new books and find new favorites. We were so excited to read That's (Not) Mine from the author of You are (Not) Small - one of our favorites!

about the book:

Two fuzzy creatures want to sit in the same comfy chair. The trouble is, they can't agree who it belongs to.

Behind the book:

Husband-and-wife team Anna Kang and Christopher Weyant are the creators of You Are (Not) Small, which won the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award and was named a Notable Children’s Book by the American Library Association. They live in New Jersey with their two daughters, Kate and Lily, a guinea pig named Athena, and a hermit crab named Olaf.

Anna, a native New Yorker, grew up believing everything was hers until one day she realized it was her brother’s, too. She received a master’s degree in fine arts from the USC School of Cinematic Arts, where the visual storyteller in her was awakened, forever changing the way she saw art, life, and everything in between. In addition to writing, Anna loves to read, travel, laugh, eat, and nap. Visit her online at www.annakang.com.

Christopher is a cartoonist and illustrator. His work can regularly be seen in the New Yorker. His cartoons are syndicated worldwide and have been featured on the Today Show, Meet the Press, and World News Tonight. Christopher likes to share everything but his personal space on the subway. Visit him online at www.christopherweyant.com.

You can purchase your copy of That's (Not) Mine at your local book retailer or at online stores like Amazon!

My Thoughts:

My four year old loved this book.  The story is simple but when you add the illustrations to the two fighting over a chair you get lots of giggles! We were able to use the book as a teaching moment and talk about how the two friends were not being very friendly. It was an easy concept to grasp.  Jace's favorite part was when the big guy crashes off the chair. As you can see from his face he thought that was very funny!

One lucky reader will win a prize pack which includes the That's (Not) Mine Book & a poster!
