Canadian winters can be downright ruthless, putting both your mind and body to the test.

Octonauts: To the Gup-X! DVD

Disclosure: My 3 Little Kittens did receive a DVD for review purposes. All opinions are honest & that of My 3 Little Kittens.

We are a cartoon-watching family. Since my children are still young, it is super important to have the content we watch be appropriate for them at all times. One of our newest favourites is Octonauts. The animation is fun and very appealing, especially for young children. Plus, each episode features underwater adventures with lessons along the way. Learning while enjoying the experience is exactly what I am looking for in regards to what my children watch.

Octonauts

New Products from Kellogg Canada

Disclosure: My 3 Little Kittens did receive product for review purposes. All opinions are honest & that of My 3 Little Kittens.

I recently joined the Kelloggers Network. I have been a long-time fan of Kellogg’s products, so this opportunity is such a great fit for my family. Plus, getting the chance to try out some of their newest products put a smile on my face. Upon receiving my first box from Kellogg Canada, I was glad to see such a great variety. The emphasis really was on breakfast and with kids, this is probably the most important meal of the day.Kellogg Canada

My husband and I both enjoyed the latte and mocha protein shakes. We enjoyed them right out of the fridge and it was a great way to start our mornings! My son went for the Strawberries and Chocolate Cereal. The flakes were crisp, the chocolate was delicious and the strawberries seemed to burst flavour. He was immediately hooked! As for the remaining products, they were all delicious. The pastry crisps were a great snack portion and super yummy!

Bringing Pages to Life with Raincoast Books

Disclosure: My 3 Little Kittens did receive product for review purposes. All opinions are honest & that of My 3 Little Kittens.

You can never have enough books. Within the pages, lie impossibilities brought to life. Looking back to the books I read as a child, their imagery is still captured in my mind. Those memories now stand as adventures of the past and it is no wonder I have shared my love of books with my children. Books offer treasures to the soul and who better to understand that than a child.

How to Wash a Wooly Mammoth

My son is a huge fan of dinosaurs and the extinct. He has such a vivid imagination and it often brings to life so many questions about what was, how it thrived and also why it failed. Many times this means getting him non-fiction books, but occasionally I love to throw in a book that brings them to life.

Raincoast Books

How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth from Raincoast Books was the just the right fit for him. The illustrations are fabulous and the content is fun. Obviously, we can’t wash a mammoth, but what if we could? The book is lighthearted and he loved every minute of it!

Ice Bears

For something more realistic and informational, I got him Ice Bears. The illustrations are very well done and the book is filled with useful knowledge. His reading skills get better every day and it is so wonderful to have the pages brought to life by his own words. The story follows a mother polar bear and her two cubs in the arctic. I personally love how engaging this book is and it is just perfect for bedtime reading!
