Popchips has created the Love Triangle you won’t regret- Tortilla Popchips! Delicious Giveaway!

I’m a big fan of Popchips! I love the way they are never fried and never baked. They are just..well…popped! They are healthier, yet they don’t taste too healthy! But, do the newer Tortilla chips have the same great taste?  They start with stoneground corn masa, the same whole grain corn used to make traditional tortillas. Then they add a little heat and pressure to pop their tortilla chips, and then they top them off with naturally delicious seasonings for tortilla chips so tasty and crispy that you may not even notice they’re healthier! I received some from our friends at Popchips and what I love the best is the bold flavor and well..the less fat and calories is always something to be happy about! No fake colors, no fake flavors and no hidden anything-Nacho Cheese, Ranch, Chili Limon and my favorite-Salsa! Yum! But, did you know that Tortilla popchips have half the fat of regular flavored tortilla chips? Only 4 grams of fat and 120 calories per one oz. serving (about 16 chips). Popchips really is the new love triangle!

Shark Baby Written by Ann Downer and Illustrated by Shennen Bersani

SharkBaby_187

Where do I belong in this great big ocean? “Who am I” wonders Shark Baby. When his “mermaid’s purse” egg case is torn loose in a storm, he finds himself on a journey through different ocean habitats: kelp forests, coral reefs, and seagrass meadows. He learns what kind of shark he isn’t, but not what kind he is. He needs to find the “mermaid” to learn where he belongs, but the ocean is big and full of dangers. Will he find out who he is-and what can he do-in time? My son and I received this book from our friends at Sylvan Dell Publishing and enjoyed finding out just what type of shark the Shark Baby is. This is best for ages 4-8 but really is great to read with younger and slightly older children too. My favorite part is the For Creative Minds which can be found at the end of all Sylvan Dell books. Parents and Teachers will love this educational section with fun activities.  To find this one and so many great books, visit their website.
