Sandra Magsamen Debuts Two New Books: My Little Monkey & Little Bear Hugs {Giveaway–2 winners}

We love Sandra Magsamen books at my house so I was very excited to hear about two new books in her new award-winning Snuggle-Me Stories series–Little Bear Hugs and My Little Monkey. I was sent both of these books to review and they are just adorable! Each board book comes with a soft, little lovey for babies. My Little Monkey features a small fleece blanket with an attached plush monkey and Little Bear Hugs comes with a teddy bear. Of course, like all Sandra Magsamen books–the stories themselves are so sweet and endearing. Not to mention that they make lovely gifts for a new baby, baby shower, or even as a stocking stuffer for Christmas!
