Have you heard of ARC books? ARC stands for Advance Reader’s Copy. I have always wanted to be one of the lucky ones to receive ARC books but finding out how to get your name on the right list can be difficult. Before today I only had one ARC book on my shelf…this copy of Saving Mr. Terupt (that I got at the local YMCA).
Today my luck has changed!
Today I got an ARC of Christmas Puzzles Minkie Monster Saves Christmas.
The author graciously sent me an ecopy of this text (the 4th in her series) along with links to two other Minkie Monster texts: Minkie Monster and the Birthday Surprise and Under the Sea Puzzles: Minkie the Monster and the Lost Treasure.
Now, ARC’s do come with strings attached. You must promise to read the text and provide an honest review on Amazon and any other social media outlet you may belong. Here is my review for Christmas Puzzles:
When Minkie Monster goes to the North Pole to meet Santa he finds a note that says, “Sometimes we all need some time alone I might even…turn off my phone!!!”
With the help of a young reader Minkie fills in for Santa and saves Christmas for everyone! Puzzles in this book become increasingly harder and include tracing, coloring, and dot-to-dot.
The author cleverly provides a link in the book so the text may be downloaded and the puzzles may be completed again and again by your favorite little reader.
