Take a Surfing Vacation With Olas Books! {giveaway}

My son, reading “My Surf Tricks”

We have these awesome books from Olas books, “My Surf Tricks” and “My Surf Lessons”. We’ve had them for years for my son and now my little wahine enjoys them as well!

Today YOU get to check them out and enter a giveaway for a great prize package from the creators, Olas Books.

What makes these books so so special? Let me count the ways…First, through these books your children can get a first glimpse at surfing and ocean fun. The ocean is such a huge part of everyone’s lives. No matter where you live, I’m sure the ocean, waves and all that lives in it fascinate you. It’s miraculous, really. This HUGE living, moving thing. And if you’ve ever seen someone ride a wave, I am sure you can attest, it’s pretty darn cool! They are riding a moving, always changing, never the same, tube of water on this small board. It’s insane!

Another thing I love is the gorgeous illustrations in the books. Bright, vivid, fun and interesting to look at, they will get and keep your kids attention. The fun beat of the words to go with the pics also gets kids engaged, listening, dare I say, maybe sitting still (albeit with a little bit of a wobble to go with the beat :) )

We have two of their books…

My Surf Tricks – a fun one that sorta introduces your kids (and maybe you) to surfing. It’s fun, light and full of action!

The next one we got was My Surf Lesson – this teaches your kids about ocean safety, looking before you leap. Hey, us parents might learn something too!

They also have a book out for new readers “Once Upon a Wave”, from Olas Books’ site…

“a new surfing story for the groms that will captivate imaginations and keep them reading. Young readers will come to know and respect the ocean and learn ocean safety through the tales told in this exciting new book.”

Here’s a little excerpt of My Surf Tricks for ya…

Now you can bring these books home and take a mini vacation right in your living room! Snow?! What snow, warm up with a Surf Tricks book!
