Introducing "Groovy Joe: Ice Cream & Dinosaurs" by Bestselling Author Eric Litwin ~ Enter to Win the Book and an Art Print!

GROOVY JOE: ICE CREAM & DINOSAURS
By Eric Litwin and Tom Lichtenheld
Release: August 30, 2016
Ages: 3-6

Meet Groovy Joe, a fun-lovin', guitar-strummin', doggy-ice-cream-eatin' pup as he wrangles three hungry dinosaurs and soon has them singing, grooving, and sharing!

Groovy Joe was living the dream.
He had a spoon and tub of doggy ice cream.
And he started to sing:
Love my doggy ice cream! Love my doggy ice cream!

Eric Litwin, author of the bestselling and beloved Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes, and bestselling artist Tom Lichtenheld, illustrator of Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site, have created a captivating new canine character who will groove his way into readers' hearts and have them grooving and giggling all the while. In his debut adventure, Groovy Joe faces three roaring dinosaurs hungry for his doggy ice cream! Oh no! But Joe knows just what to do and soon enough he has them all sharing while moving and singing along. Signature rhyme, repetition, and musical writing style, combined with wild and witty illustrations, come together to create an unforgettable new character who embodies positivity, creativity, and kindness. Groovy Joe is here, ready to get groovy!


My thoughts: This book has it all -- a cool character, important lessons, and a catchy song! Kids will want to listen to the song over and over again and read the book every night at bedtime. They'll learn that sharing is awesome, and first impressions aren't always correct. The "scary" dinosaurs in this book turn out to be great friends with Groovy Joe, and they bond over their love of "doggy ice cream"! Groovy Joe: Ice Cream & Dinosaurs is a fun read-aloud book that's sure to be a big hit in schools and homes.
