Nana Star Giveaway!!

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy here.



I was blessed to receive some books from Nana Star along with a sweet little Moonman Lovey to review. I am so absolutely impressed with the products that I received and the company itself. I'll let you know how to enter to win one of the books at the end of this post.

The Nana Star stories were birthed years ago when the author's grandmother began telling stories to her grandson about the Moonman. She created special cards and illustrated character for him, becoming his "Nana Star". The family is now involved in sharing the story of Nana Star through picture books and a toy collection. Their books have won numerous awards and also donate a portion of their proceeds to the Nana Star Foundation, dedicated to helping make life easier for children attending under-resourced, inner-city schools and for terminally ill children.



Nana Star ($15.95) is a wonderfully illustrated book by Elizabeth Sills and Elena Patrice that tells the story of a lost baby star who misses his Nana. A little girl finds him, becomes his Nana Star, and sets out to bring him back to his home in the heavens. The book also includes a bonus cd that has a reading of Nana Star and the Nana Star song. The story is absolutely sweet and the website has a video of the Nana Star song in sign language on their website.

And the plush Moonman Lovey ($19.95) - just too cute for words. He glows when he is cuddled and plays a little "luvaby" when his tummy is hugged - something my kids have had so much fun with when he's been within their reach. He would be such a sweet nighttime companion for your little one! We have a special little someone turning one who will find him in her pile of presents next week!!

There is also a book written about the Moonman, Nana Star and the Moonman ($15.95), that includes a song and book reading on cd. In this story, Nana Star tries to return the baby star but she becomes afraid as the dark settles in. When she peeps up into the sky, she realizes that it isn't so dark after all with the bright light of the Moonman smiling down on her.

The book itself has a mistake in it (on purpose) and if you find the mistake, you can write the company and get a surprise from them!! Overall, the book and the Lovey are so sweet - and this is a site you definitely want to take a look at.



And....I have a giveaway for you today!! If you would like to win a copy of the book Nana Star for your little ones, leave a comment below by Friday, January 23rd 8pm letting me know. I will draw a winner and announce next Monday on my blog. Be sure that there is a way to contact you - otherwise, I will draw another name!
