Honest Kitchen ProBloom Goat Milk Supplement w/Probiotics ($20ARV) US 8/10

Welcome to the Honest Kitchen ProBloom Giveaway!
ProBloom on right.
Disclosure: I have received these products in exchange for my honest review, no additional compensation was received for this giveaway. I hold no responsibility for the fulfillment of the prize. 

ProBloom 
Pro Bloom is a dry goat's milk supplement with probiotics. It is shelf-stable and instantly goat's milk with digestive enzymes & probiots. Pro Bloom is great for dogs and cats. Pro Bloom is The Honest Kitchen's very own formulation of natural goat's milk plus probiotics and digestive enzymes. It was designed to nourish and nurture cats and dogs alike. Ideally for growing puppies and kittens as well as general immune support for the gut.

Pro Bloom digestive enzymes for dogs and cats is a human-grade and made in the USA from pasture-raised, free-ranging goat's milk in the Pacific Northwest. It is free of pesticides, herbicides, growth hormones and antibiotics.  Can be served alone, over hard food or mixed with Grace Cat Food. 

I gave our momma cat some Pro Bloom while she was nursing her newborn kittens and she loved it. Once the kittens were drinking water on their own then I introduced them to Pro Bloom. I did not want to over step momma cat's nursing abilities or deter them from nursing from mom. The kittens absolutely LOVE the Pro Bloom! I mix it with warm water and the warm goat's milk sits nicely in their little tummies. They used to sleep after drinking Pro Bloom, now that they are older that no longer fall asleep shortly after drinking it. Sort of like a human infant falling asleep with warm milk/formula/breastmilk in their little tummies. 


Even at eight weeks old they still love their Pro Bloom. The bowl on the left is water and the bowl on the right is Pro Bloom Goat's Milk, all six started out drinking milk and a few followed it up with water. They all approve! Also, after the kittens leave the bowl of goat's milk, if I am not looking, I can catch the older cats taking a drink of Pro Bloom. They also like it, but they allow the kittens to drink first.

Princess Sophia and the Frog eBook Review


Disclosure: I received this product in exchange for my honest review. All opinions and experiences are my own and may differ from those of your own. 

Princess Sophia and the Frog
Princess Sophia and the Frog is a wonderful fairy tale about friendship and happiness. The little princess, Sophia, has everything a little princess could wish for; a big castle with many things inside. But, she is bored and wants to fly to the moon. One day a little frog comes by and helps her fly high up into the sky. They come to land on different planets, where Sophia learns about feelings. She also learns that she can choose what mood she surrounds herself with, as this will impact her own. After returning to the castle she realizes that all she needs to be happy is to be surrounded by good friends.



What more could a princess possibly want or need? Other than a good friend to help show her that happiness is key? 

Since having read this book my 9 year old daughter and I discuss our feelings on a daily basis, well, when she's home. It's also important for children to have someone understanding that they can talk to about what they are or did feel through out the day. In addition to saying what they feel, is having them explain why they felt that way as well as how they could help make themselves feel happier. Give ideas and examples. 

My boys are five and three and they are not quite like girls, but it's also a good thing to discuss these things with them as well. 

All three of my children greatly enjoy this book. They like the different travels that Princess Sophia and the Frog go on. With the boys it more so strikes up conversations about where they'd like to travel and why. Some of the things they come up with are pretty cute. 

Purchase this Book.

Hugo The Happy Starfish - IT'S GOOD TO BE ME! eBook Review


Disclosure: I received this product in exchange for my honest review. All opinions and experiences are my own and may differ from those of your own. 

It's Good To Be Me!
Hugo The Happy Starfish - It's Good To Be Me ($5.99ARV) is an Award-Winning Finalist in the Children's Mind/Body/Spirit category of the USA "Best Books 2011" Awards. 

"Happiness Begins Within" 

Hugo is a little starfish with a big heart. Everyday he makes other creatures happy and doing so makes Hugo happy. One day however, he begins to feel small and ugly, convinced that nobody like him. When granted some magic wishes he decides to change a few things he doesn't like about himself.  Hugo learns a great lesson and once those changes are made he wishes he could be himself again. Join Hugo on this adventure as he discovers that being himself is the best way to be, and the only way to be happy. 


It's Good To Be Me! is a story about the importance of self-esteem when striving to be a happy and successful person. This story is a goof way to teach children about having a healthy self-esteem and to be happy with the way they are. It teaches appreciation and five senses. 

My children are ages nine, five and three a positive self image is imperative at all ages and it's never too soon to start reading a book such as Hugo's It's Good To Be ME!. Often we forget to talk about emotions, how to handle certain situations, etc. Hugo's stories help fill in those often forgotten gaps. While things such as appreciating yourself and having self confidence seem like second nature, we've all learned different things at different points in our lives that we've used to help develop our own self worth. 

With having a nine year old daughter, I feel it's even more important to help teach her to be confident in herself, positive self-esteem, etc. These books are not too "young" of reads for her and she often enjoys reading them by herself as well as to her brothers. She even goes as far as explaining some things to her brothers while reading them and will give me examples from real life situations in which she has faced.
