Klutz Book of Animation Blog Tour (stop #5) And Giveaway!

Winner is Jonathan Ezor!!

My Solarcarnewkids and I enjoy Klutz books because they allow us to learn new and child friendly activities in a fun and engaging way.

The Klutz activity books also help me be the "craft/hobby" mom I always wanted to be! How else would I know how to make a solar car?

Because of my prior fun experience with Klutz, I was excited to be asked to host stop #5 (and a giveaway) in the Klutz Book of Animation - 16 stop blog tour. Blog book tours are fun ways to spread the word on interesting books. LittleTechGirl will be hosting the next stop on Monday - check it out to find another fun giveaway & video feature!

AnimationCover Here is the press information sent to me about the Klutz Book of Animation:

I would use them with my kids. Especially the animation one. I have a couple of emerging drawers and I think they would be really interested in how to make animation. Especially my 7yo autistic kid. I think that would be right up his alley.

i would let my husband do this with my daughter. he likes to make movies, she likes to do projects. it is a win-win situation...we might have to look into this for christmas...

I would love to use these books with my son! He's turning seven in a couple of weeks and he loves stuff like this! Thanks for the chance to win. mrsmchappell at gmail dot com

After giving each a walk thru, I'd share them with my nephews who live for things like this. I mean they own every color of duct tape ever made. They are home schooled and love any type of do-it-yourself activity. My sister would appreciate something that doesn't involve self made mud!

My mom's friend has two twin girls that love these type of things, so I'd save it for their birthday or christmas.

I used to love Klutz books when I was a kid!

I've got three kids, all of whom are creative (and the oldest of whom has already gotten into animation). They'd all find fun and valuable info in these books! {Jonathan}

I love doing creative projects with my son so I would we definitely use these together! Thanks for the chance.

I'd love to use this with the grand kids, I think they'd really enjoy it.

My sons have been talking for a couple years now about the star wars Lego movie they plan to make together.... Now just for the tools to do it!?

I would love to use them with my kids who will then share their masterpieces with their grandparents to brighten up their days. Klutz "craft" time will be huge motivation for the kids to get their homework done, and also will be nice family time for us. Thank you for the great offer!

My son has started playing around with animation a little on his own -- this book would really fuel his interest and give him helpful guidance! Thanks for the chance to win!

Both my kids love to do projects at home and I know we'd get a lot of use out of these books. Klutz makes learning fun!

I would give them to my niece and nephew. I think Klutz makes a wonderful product. My children have enjoyed many of their craft sets. Thank you for the giveaway...

Darn, I see the giveaway has already ended....Well congratulations to the winner... :)
