Sweepstakes Mercer Mayer Children Book

Reading is the best gift children can have an my boys love the time we spend together reading. I'm excited, in January 2013, Silver Dolphin Books will be unveiling their very first app about Little Critter—Mercer Mayer’s Little Critter: The Trip. Even more special Award-winning American children’s book author and illustrator Mercer Mayer Birthday is on December 30.

Silver Dolphin Books would like to celebrate this brilliant author 69th birthday, who has written and illustrated over 300 children’s books.  FREE Holiday E-Cards, FREE Activity Sheets and a new App! and not mention Autographed Book as a GIFT for one of my readers!!!
“Most of my books are about things that happened to me when I was a little kid,” says Mercer. “Now that I’m a big kid, I write about things that happen now, especially with my own children and grandchildren. They always remind me of what it is like to be little."

In January 2013, Silver Dolphin Books will be unveiling their very first app about Little Critter—Mercer Mayer’s Little Critter: The Trip. The app is being developed right now by Silver Dolphin Books together with the award-winning app developer John R. Sansevere. Here’s a sneak peak at one of the scenes from the app:
Available in late January 2013, Silver Dolphin Book’s Little Critter: The Trip app invites young children to learn along with Little Critter and the other familiar characters who will reinforce their ability to resolve thepractical, down-to-earth, family-based situations typically presented in Mayer’s book series. Offering a balance of fun games and learning activities, the Little Critter app emphasizes basic pre-school and early elementary curriculum (numbers, shapes, colors, patterns, letters, simple words, map reading).

In Little Critter: The Trip, you will be able to take an action-packed car trip with Little Critter, Little Sister, Mom and Dad in which everything imaginable happens—literally—from A to Z, in this fun-filled interactive app! “B is for bad” when the “T is for tire” goes flat! And “L is for lost” when where did the “R is for road” go? Little Critters’ trip is full of humorous ups and downs like the actual road they’re following! It’s up to you and Little Critter to help find the way, fix the car when it breaks down, and play lots of fun “G is for games” with Little Sister to pass the time! Kids learn along with Little Critter as, true to his nature, he cheers you on to scale new heights!

Mercer Mayer autographed copy of LITTLE CRITTER’S SNOWBALL SOUP, a “My First I Can Read” book for readers ages 4 and up (paperback). A fun winter-themed book that ties so well into this festive time of year—join Little Critter, Little Sister, and Dog as they make their new friend the snowman a tasty treat—Snowball soup!

Open to the US & Contest ends December 27, 2012. Visit Silver Dolphin Books Blog where they will post new information about the upcoming app, including details of a fun contest coming in January 2013 and sign up for newsletter. Follow on twitter @SilverDolphin & facebook.

Mercer Mayer’s first book, A Boy, a Dog, and a Frog, was the result of this meeting, and published by Dial Press in 1967. It was a completely wordless picture book, relying entirely on Mayer’s illustrations to tell its story. In fact, Mayer was one of the first illustrators to be credited for using this format. Five more books followed in that series.
