3 New Children’s Classics from Harper Collins #Giveaway

This month I received three superb new picture books from Harper Collins.

Waiting by Kevin Henkes, Charlie Piechart and the Case of the Missing Pizza Slice by Eric Comstock and Marilyn Sadler and Imaginary Fred by Eoin Colfer and Oliver Jeffers.

The kids and I were so thrilled to receive these gorgeous books we couldn’t wait until bedtime to read them!

{Imaginary Fred}

Imaginary Fred is the story of Fred an imaginary friend. He loves being an imaginary friend but hates it when he’s no longer needed and disappears. Read Imaginary Fred to find out what happens in this great story!

By now we all know toys come to life! I really loved this book about sweet toys waiting for something. The pictures are gorgeous, the story is simple and magical. My four year old loves this one the most out of all three books!

{Charlie Piechart and the Case of the Missing Pizza Slice}

Charlie Piechart is a great book that combines math (fractions!) with a mystery. It’s smart and laugh out loud funny. My kids loved seeing how Charlie Piechart was trying to solve the mystery of who ate 1/12 of the pizza.

All three books are SO great. I highly recommend you pick them up for your child’s library. All three books are recommended for ages 4 to 8.

You can find these books at bookstores across Canada right now.
