GIVEAWAY: Princess Cupcake Jones Children's Book

If you haven't heard of Princess Cupcake Jones...allow me to introduce you.
Everybody wave "Hi!" to one of the cutest children's book characters you'll meet.


She's adorable.
You know what I love about this series?

Welp, lots. :)

Each book has a message that children can relate to.
In  "Princess Cupcake Jones and the Missing Tutu," Cupcake Jones loses her beloved tutu.

Through beautiful illustrations and catchy rhymes, readers learn the importance of picking up after themselves.

Whatta concept, right?!
But more than the fun story lines, the author--Ylleya Fields-- fills a niche of creating strong African American characters in books for children.

A mother herself, Fields states she was struck by the lack of titles featuring African American characters, so she created Princess Cupcake Jones!

You go, Momma! 

I love these books so much that I reached out to Fields to let her know.

I believe all children should have a copy on their bookshelves and in their libraries.

I told her how much I enjoy reading these books to my daughters -- not just because they're cute [that's a given, right?], but because they're inclusive with characters of all races.

And because good things are meant to be shared, I want you to have your own copy of Princess Cupcake Jones.

Enter away to win today through Saturday, February 14, 2015.

In the meantime, show some lovin' to a momma who saw a need for equal representation in children's books -- She deserves it!
