Miracle in Sumatra Review and Giveaway...

In Miracle in Sumatra, Gus discovers his parents have been trapped by hunters who have come to Sumatra to hunt the orangutan. With the help of his friends, Maya, a little girl, and Gabriella, the guardian of the jungle, Gus sets out to save his parents and teach the trappers about the importance of their natural habitat in Sumatra.

Jeann Mcnaney currently resides in Old Greenwich, Conn., with her husband and three young children. Her first children’s book, The Legend of Honey Hollow (Ovation Books, January 2009), introduces children to environmentalism and the dangers of global warming. She has served on the board of Pathways, Inc., which provides housing for mentally ill adults. She currently sits on the board of governors for the We Are Family Foundation and is an active volunteer with the Old Greenwich School.

I was excited to be able to review this hardcover book! What a great story! I want the cute ape in the story for a pet! I loved when the angel helps the kids! I enjoyed reading this book and the love I felt when reading it!

I get to give away one hardcover copy of this book to a lucky winner!

I read children's books to my kids at night, and my hubby likes to read a little older chapter type books. This looks perfect for bedtime reading.
