Children’s books are a HUGE part of our family life in Sluiter Nation.
Eddie has so many that I am running out of shelf room in his bedroom. Charlie has so many board books they are taking over the nursery. And yet, I would never ever say, “oh, we have enough books.” There is just no such thing as “enough” when it comes to books.
Recently we added one more book to our growing pile, Stand Up. But this book is extra special. This one is authored by David Stefanich, otherwise known as “Uncle Dave” in our house since he is, in fact, the kids’ uncle.
Stand Up is a book about Xavier, a student at Parker Elementary. Xavier is a victim of bullying. The book follows Xavier from Kindergarten through 3rd grade and shows the importance of bystanders and how they can make all the difference.
David works in education as an elementary school principal and he is acutely aware of the challenges kids face at this age. Not only is the plot of the book wonderful for kids of all ages, but because of his work in education, it’s also the perfect book for making predictions, making inferences, and opening up discussion between parents and children.
Eddie and Charlie have listened to “Uncle Dave’s Book” countless times in the short week we’ve had it, and every time something new comes up when we are finished.
Stand Up would make the perfect gift this holiday season, but one of you has the chance to win a copy signed by the author here!
Just follow the directions in the Rafflecopter widget below. A winner will be chosen at midnight on November 25.

Disclosure: This is not a sponsored post. We received two copies of the book because we paid for two copies. Now I want to give one to one of you because we love it and its author.
