I am very excited to share with you about a new book that is out for military kids or kids that have daddies that travel a lot! I have read a lot of books and have written a lot of book reviews and Xs and Os for Gabby Ann has been one of my favorites so far! I really really love it!
Book Description From Amazon.com:
Gabby Ann loves kisses and hugs. They are the BEST part about bedtime. There is nothing like an extra kiss and a hug – an X and an O – from her mommy before the lights go out. But, what about Gabby’s Daddy? He works on the other side of the world, at least a million miles away. So, how are his kisses and hugs going to reach her? When will they get there? What if they get lost along the way? Join the Xs and Os on a lively, global adventure as they find their way to Gabby Ann, helping children to realize the boundless and powerful spirit of a parent’s love.”
First, I want to say that I give this beautifully illustrated kid’s book five stars. It is a wonderful story from beginning to end about an adorable little girl named Gabby Ann. She misses her daddy and is just waiting for his sweet hugs and kisses (his Xs and Os) to make it all the way across the world to her!
While she is waiting impatiently for them to arrive, the Xs and Os take quite the journey around the world. Through jungles and deserts and through ice and snow they travel and meet lots of friends along the way. When they finally arrive at Gabby Ann’s house they get there just in time to tuck her into bed.
I love the illustrations in this book. They are so colorful and fun and that is what really drew me in! Kids will love following along with the journey of the X’s and O’s as the meet other animals and friends along the way! This book is just perfect for military kids that miss their daddy or kids who have a daddy that travels a lot. This book is sure to become a nightly bedtime request!
One of the best things about this book is that 10% of the net profit from the sale of every book will benefit the Operation Purple Camp Programs of the National Military Family Association. Every purchase is helping a military kid!
