“must have marvin” book giveaway!

I want to share a little about our new book, Must Have Marvin. Back in November, I reviewed and gave away a copy of the sweet book, Can’t Wait Willow, Must Have Marvin is the second book in this new series. And it is equally adorable. I cannot wait to give a copy to one lucky reader :)

Marvin is a little boy who has to have the latest and greatest new things. When one of his friends shows him his new “Super Galactic Robot”, Marvin has to have one right away. As he fixates on the robot, he lets down his friends when they need him. He quickly realizes that the robot does not complete his life, and he is given a second chance to make things right with his friends.

This is the main lesson that Marvin learns—acquiring things does not make us happy. Spending time with those we love make us happy. (Don’t we all need to be reminded of this every once in a while?) ;)

The illustrations are so bright, modern and cute! Nolan loves just flipping through it to look at all of the action in the pictures.

Author Bio

“Christy Ziglar, financial planner, mother of twins and niece of legendary motivator and the world’s original optimist, Zig Ziglar, is bringing the same timeless wisdom and ageless advice to an entirely new, younger audience through her new Shine Bright Kids picture book series.”

Illustrator Bio

“Thanks to her first-grade teacher, who recognized her superior skills in drawing a robin, Luanne Marten  has been drawing, painting, and sketching ever since. She is a great experimenter and has a fresh, whimsical approach that brings her characters to life.”

I like that Willow is Marvin’s friend in this book—connecting the two books together!
