Nana Star: Review and Giveaway

Caleb is a bit afraid of the dark. He really doesn't like to be left alone downstairs, either. I enjoyed giving him the Moonman from the new series of Nana Star! I really like the Moonman, because he is super soft and cuddly. His face lights up (like the moon) and he plays a great little tune. It is a very appealing tune, too. The book that accompanies the Moonman is about Nana Star (the little girl in the blue dress) bringing the star to it's home. The darkness comes, and Nana Star is scared. The Moonman comes out, and helps Nana Star see that he helps light up the night with his light.
There are two plush dolls (Nana Star and Moonman) and a book that coordinates with each one. Each Nana Star book includes an accompanying audio CD with the storybook and a sing-along song. To make the book a little more interactive, the authors have included a spelling mistake in each book and encourage readers to find it and send them a postcard with the correction. Children are then eligible to receive an 8x10 photo of the Nana Star costumed character and become an honorary member of the Nana Star Little Twinkles Club. The Club is expanded on its website, www.NanaStar.com, where language arts activities for emerging readers are offered.
Elizabeth Owens is the creator of Nana Star, and her grandson, Vance originally inspired her. Linda Saker, Owens's daughter, is the series illustrator; her granddaughters, Elizabeth Sills and Elena Patrice, write and publish the Nana Star stories; and her five great-grandchildren have contributed inspiration to this special undertaking.
Would you like to win a Nana Star gift set from Nana Star? Nana Star has offered to sponsor a giveaway for a lucky Sassyfrazz reader. This contest is open to all bloggers and non-bloggers of the United States. Please go to the Nana Star website and look around. Then, come back and comment about which one you would like to win: Nana Star character doll with the Nana Star book, or the Moonman Lovey with the book Nana Star and the Moonman. Click here to see how you can earn extra credits. Good Luck! This contest is open until July 23rd at 7:00 PM CST.
I was also given a coupon code to offer for a 10% off the already discounted combo price if you buy a book and plush together, until 7/31. Please just enter SASSY10

I would choose the Nana Star character doll with the Nana Star book for my daughter.

abbygirl said...

They are both so sweet and "child approptiate" unlike most of the ugly 'razzle-dazzle" comic book hero type characters that abound these days. I always wanted to write and illustrate children's books, but .....time and talent and lack of initiative got in the way. Congratulations to those who follow their dreams successfully and beautifully.

My niece really wants the Nana Star. Please and thank you

sabb266 said...

These are just too cute! I would love to have either one of these: Nana Star character doll with the Nana Star book, or the Moonman Lovey with the book Nana Star and the Moonman!

Since I need to pick just one though, I guess it would have to be the Moonman Lovey with the book Nana Star and the Moonman all because of you! One of my grandchildren is also named Caleb! He too is afraid of the dark and since this has helped your son Caleb, then maybe it will help my grandson Caleb!
