Our family loves arts and craft projects.
We adore paper dolls (a longstanding obsession).
We have a new toy in the house, a tablet, that’s itching to be read on.
One of my favorite daily reads is my friend Brenda Ponnay’s heartfelt and incredibly creative website, Secret Agent Josephine.
Today’s post combines all of these loves!
Welcome to stop number
three C on the Secret Agent Josephine Book Tour!
Brenda has written three beautifully illustrated and playful picture books, Secret Agent Josephine’s ABC’s, Secret Agent Josephine’s Colors, and Secret Agent Josephine’s Numbers, available as paperbacks and ebooks (just $2.99 each!) perfect for downloading to a laptop, smart phone, tablet or iPad:
Our three-year old daughter adored all of these books! She giggled and smiled and laughed her way through each of them (and felt particularly proud of herself for being able to “turn” the pages on the tablet too). I was particularly charmed by the incredibly creative and beautifully illustrated secret agent gear throughout the Secret Agent Josephine’s Numbers book, my personal favorite of the trio.
To promote these three books, 26 different blogs are sharing crafts, interviews with Brenda, book reviews, and poster giveaways. The tour began on Monday and continues through mid-December. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to visit all these blogs and collect clues along the way.
Today, C is for Creative Salad!
Your assignment for today is to complete a Top Secret Craft. Please cut out and dress Secret Agent Josephine for her next mission!
(A huge thank you to Brenda for this playful, sassy and super fun paper doll!)
In true Creative Salad fashion, we decided to expand upon the craft and transform our Stealth Secret Agent into a magnetic paper doll!
Oh, we’ve been having such fun dressing our favorite Secret Agent!
In honor of her book release, Brenda has graciously offered us a letter C print (from her book) to give to you! Please leave a comment below to be entered to win a print. I’ll pick a winner on December
1st 15th and then notify them via email.
We’ve so enjoyed participating on this book tour! Thank you to Brenda for including us and providing us with such a special craft and generous giveaway! xoxo
Now, go buy your copies of these affordable and fun books!
For the next stop on the tour, visit Brenda’s website.
p.s. For those of you searching for clues, the words you’re looking for are hidden in a photo in this post. Good luck!
