Extra Extra! Hero Dog Helps Crack The Case {Scholastic Giveaway}

I am hosting a giveaway in partnership with Scholastic! The Mommy Island is not responsible for prize fulfillment. 
With the Booper starting at a new school this year, I've taken on the role of the librarian as a volunteer. He's attending a small public school where due to funding cuts they have to rely on volunteers to run the library. I love being able to help his school in general, but I was actually thrilled to have the chance to work in the library. This year I'm also organizing the school's annual Scholastic Book Fair! To say I've been obsessed with getting good books in kids' hands the last few weeks is an understatement. I've had the privilege of scouting out new books that our library needs, so when I was sent Hero Dog I checked to make sure our library had a copy too. Hilde Cracks The Case is written by 10-year-old Hilde Lysiak and is the first in a series from Scholastic Branches.

Make Yourself At Home In Ohio

This post is sponsored by Nakturnal, all views are my own. Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. 
I've been blogging for a while now, and I've met so many great people through this online adventure. It's crazy that one of my best friends that I talk with every day I met through blogging. Amanda and I were fast friends. Although we're as different as night and day we connect through sarcasm and a similar sense of humor. My family and I live in Indiana, and Amanda is from Ohio, and as close as we are we've never visited the other's house, however, Amanda keeps trying to get me to move to Ohio so we can live closer to each other. Moving to Ohio so tempting, and here's why.

Keeping Your Family Safe Online With CUJO Smart Firewall

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. 
As the Booper gets older he's learning how to use more devices to play and learn. I love how technology can be used to even help him with reading. With all the great uses for technology I wonder how much access he has and how much others have to him. I want to know he's safe using the laptop, tablet, and even when he's accessing an app on our phones. We were excited to learn more about CUJO Smart Firewall and how it could help us keep our family safe while online.

I received the below-mentioned DVD in exchange for this post. All views and opinions are my own. Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. 
We are big fans of Nick Jr. in our house. Both of my kids love watching all the shows, and I love seeing the great character building story lines like the ones in Shimmer and Shine. Although Shimmer and Shine do make mistakes, they are always finding ways to fix them and solve problems to help their friends. One thing we try to teach the Booper is that it's alright to make mistakes, but when you see you've made one you need to do your best to fix it.

A Greener Clean With Charlie's Soap

I received the below-mentioned products in exchange for this post, all opinions are my own. Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. 
I'm not sure if everyone feels this way, but my family seems to be dirt magnets especially the Booper. At seven years old it seems that the second he steps outside he has mud smeared on some part of his body. Our back door leads into our kitchen, and the kitchen seems to be our hub for all the activity in our house which means it's the grungiest room of the house. I like that feeling I get right after cleaning the kitchen, when I clean the kitchen I feel like our whole house is improved. Little Miss is always playing around my feet she's crawling, rolling, and pushing around trucks and choo-choo trains left from the Booper. When I clean our floors I want to know the cleaner I've used isn't leaving behind something more harmful than the dirt. We were excited to try out Charlie's Soap and put it to the test against our family's dirt!
