Gollywood Here I Come! Book Review and #Giveaway

        I love the stage that Dane is in right now being 6, learning to read and write.  He is such an artistic child as well so this is the type of school work he is thrilled to do.  He is constantly writing and filming his own movies (really, he writes the story then has us film it).  I love that he is above average and one of the top readers in his class because I know it is something he both enjoys AND it is something that will help him in future educational endevours.

        So when I was asked to review the book "Gollywood Here I Come!", I figured it would be perfect for Dane and his personality!  Written by director/choreographer-turned author Terry John Barto, I felt as though Dane might enjoy reading through it.  He was quite excited when it arrived especially after I told him about it but in all honesty seems to have lost a little bit of the enthusiasm in it over the last week or so.  I'm sure it is because of the excitement of Halloween just passing.

        The synopsis says, "Growing up in the small town of Gobbleville, Anamazie studied acting, singing and dancing while basking in the local spotlight as a star baton twirler.  Opportunity comes knocking when the competition Gobbleville’s Got Talent gives Anamazie her shot at being discovered.  With her mom Henrietta at her back, she makes it all the way to the finals, but falls short of the top prize. That is where her path to stardom truly begins as she is discovered by a talent scout, is cast in her first movie and declares 'Gollywood, Here I Come!'"
