Hooligan Bear Series Review & Giveaway #babytravels

Welcome to the [2nd Annual] Travelin' with Baby Giveaway Hop Event, hosted by So Easy Being Green, According to Jenny, and Viva Veltoro.

This Hop was so popular last year, that we decided to bring it back and make it bigger and better than ever. We've got a fabulous group of bloggers that have come together to offer giveaways on the best products that make traveling with baby a success! 

Once you enter my giveaway, be sure to hop around to all the other bloggers in the Event and keep scrolling for a Sneak Peek of the amazing Travelin' With Baby Grand Prizes

What better way to keep your child occupied while traveling than with a new book?

Hooligan Bear is an adorable new series by Ian Toynton about five friends and all of their adventures, and perfect to bring along on your little one's next traveling adventure.  Kids will love the stories about the importance of friendship and the colorful illustrations.

The first book, Home, sets the stage for the series.  Hooligan and his nephew, Little Louie, return home to their bear factory and find out that it's been closed.  They have to figure out what they are going to do.  Hooligan and Louie figure out just how special they are to each other.

"And will we be together?" asked Little Louie as he wiped a tear from his face.  
"Yes," replied Hooligan, "As we always have."

The next book, New Friends,  Hooligan and his nephew, Little Louie, were living on a shelf in an empty bear factory.  One day a box falls off a truck and the original two bears soon find out they won't be along for much longer.  Three more bears join the pack and a beautiful friendship begins.

"They talked about the journeys they had taken and the worlds they had seen and how they would always look out for each other, because that's what friends are for." 

The third book, A Special Day, is all about all the bears helping Little Louie celebrate his birthday for the first time!  The bears go on quite an adventure to their local bakery as part of the main plan to get a cake for Little Louie.  Along the way, they also pick up trinkets as gifts for Louie too.

"Hooligan sat by the window and knew it had been the very best day of Little Louie's life."

  2. these sound like wonderful books, touching and heartfelt. i think stories about friendships are important for the little ones
