Mazel Tov, in Hebrew, means congratulations. As many of you know, I recently had a baby girl named Samara.

After Samara was born, I’ve received many “Mazel Tovs.”

In honor of my new baby girl, I’m co-hosting a $15 gift certificate giveaway with Little One Books.

Little One Books sent me two baby books to review. After all, I have a target audience here to test them out on.
The first one is called “I Went Walking.” Samara seemed to like it.
I Went Walking is a great book for babies. It’s simple, but introduces a variety of animal words and colors, including a green duck, a red horse, a black cat and a yellow dog. The book’s words are rhythmic and catches one’s attention with it’s rhyming couplets.
The second book I received was Sandra Boynton’s The Going to Bed Book.

I read this to Samara when she was sleepy. This book features silly looking cartoon animals getting ready for bed. They’re doing all the routines associated with bedtime, like putting on their pajamas, taking a bath, and brushing their teeth. However, there is a page in the book that is questionable:

The animals are exercising before they go to bed, which is nonsensical. But it’s cute and funny to see cartoon elephants, moose and other animals working out. I’ll give Ms. Boynton a pass on that one.

After we finished reading The Going To Bed Book this happened:
