0 Love Books exchange : Sneak Peek - Because it's all Good

We @ The Bubble Ink love books and have been always been a teeny-bit guilty of giving other equally enjoyable things a lesser priority - one of it being Crafts. While we bookmarked and pinned a host of websites - we didn't get down to doing them as often as we would have liked to. One such website was The Educators' Spin On It. We really love how they make books, activities and the whole deal of bringing up toddlers - so enjoyable. The website really creates that vibe in you to get you enthused about kid-lit and craft related with children.
When I came across the Love Books that they have been hosting - I was interested in participating in it even cross country - By making arrangements to deliver and receive my package through close family living in the USA. I wrote to them and to my surprise, they agreed to host an exchange India, provided I get a few interested bloggers in India. [Kim had agreed to host it even if there was 1 other person to play exchange with me]. But, when I have these awesome bloggers in my network like A Spoonfull of ideas, Cuddles and Reads, Parenting Mantras, On board the Mommyship, Chooku Booku and Prajakta - All of them book lovers and most of them even story tellers. It was a super response and the exchange happened for the first time in India with 7 participants.

More than half of the participants were those with whom we have already been exchanging books especially Parenting Mantras, Chooku Booku and Cuddles and Reads. So we wished to send it to the awesome story teller, lovely crafter and a blogger:  "On Board the Mommyship" from Golpo whose blog and articles on Parentous I have been following for a over 2 years. The wish came true, Kim paired me with her.

We love what Golpo is doing - the choice of books, the stories, the craft - the pictures say it all. 

Our package :

The child to whom we are sending the package is around the same age as the bubbling - So we chose to send the book which was an instant hit and is still her favourite. We also believed the book can serve as a great choice for Golpo sessions, if On Board the Mommyship prefers it to be. The choice of the book was an easy one, we were lucky to find a copy easily too. Every day, since the last 1 week - making the package has been at the back of the mind. I had been mentally planning this throughout last week - with each day giving me a new idea. With On Board the Mommyship, being an awesome crafter and a creative story teller herself, we wanted to make it extra special for her. Hope she and her son enjoy the package as much we did making it for her.

Here is a sneak peek of what we sent, We just have one statement to say,
"Because it's all good"

A note of thanks to The Educators' Spin on it for this idea - It is such a lovely gesture making a package like this for a kid! -

Now does anyone want to guess the book!
