It Smells Like a Winner to Me

It’s scratch and sniff meets the pop-up book with the cuteness of a puppy thrown in.

The newest book that needs to find a home on your child’s book shelf is Mo Smells Red, a “press 2 smell experience.” The book for kids follows Mo, a black and white spotted pooch with the hardest working schnoz in the book biz. Mo’s sniffer picks up a series of red delights – strawberries, roses and more, teaching kids about colors with the surprise bonus of real scents thrown in!

Based on the rescue dog owned by illustrator Amanda Giacomini, the story by Margaret Hyde manages to put in words what a color can be and how a dog can sniff out the mysteries behind the hue. It’s a magical story – and the donation from each sale that goes to Best Friends Animal Society allows this to double as a gift for your kids and a gift for animals in need this season.

Want to win one for your book shelf? The rules are the same as always – leave a comment to enter (tell me what other goodies you’ve found at Mo’s Nose), and earn extra entries by grabbing my badge and/or blogging about the contest. Leave that link in comments.

AND! Because I don’t like having to chase people down, I’m throwing in an extra entry. For the rest of November, new subscribers will be eligible for the Build-A-Bear Workshop game for Nintendo Wii or DS. So subscribe at left to be notified of new giveaways, who wins and all the rest of the Inside Out reviews!

The Mo Smells Red contest will close November 19, 2008, and it’s open to US and Canadian residents. Thanks for reading (make sure you sign up for the other ongoing giveaways).

  26. Hello, The story is near and dear to my heart because we have a 4 month old beagle puppy that was rescued from a puppy mill! When we adopted “Daisy”, we were told she had bronchitis and to keep giving here the medications. We realized that she was only getting worse. We ended taking her 3 hours away from home to a Veterinary School Hospital. Her odds weren’t good at all. I am happy to say that she is alive, well and thriving. The “Mo” to go bag of goodies is fabulous. Please enter me in your book drawing. Many thanks, Cindijchoppes[at]hotmail[dot]com
