22 WoW! WoW! Wubbzy Goes Green! {Review & Giveaway} CLOSED!
Just in time to celebrate our Earth! Earth Day was Thursday, but we don't have to stop celebrating!

To help celebrate the new release – and Mother Earth, Anchor Bay has partnered with the Alliance for Community Trees (ACT). For every “Wubbzy Goes Green” DVD sold, Anchor Bay will donate $1 to ACT to help support the planting of trees in playgrounds and schoolyards across the country! The special tree-plantin
g initiative “sprouts” on April 1 and continues through May 31, 2010.

And to further ”plant the seeds” of green-themed consciousness among the budding environmentalists in your family, following are some tips and cool “tree trivia” inspired by “Wubbzy Goes Green” and ACT:

* Take along washable cups or travel mugs instead of disposables.

* Turn off the faucet while
brushing your teeth.

* Volunteer with community organizations that plant trees like the Alliance for Community Trees!

Trees make for thriving children!

More facts about trees!

Cleaner air: Trees help trap and remove tiny particles of soot and dust, which otherwise damage human lungs, and tree r
oot networks filter contaminants in soils producing clean water. Four million trees would save $20 million in annual air pollution cleanup!***

Energy saver: The cooling effects of trees can save millions of energy dollars! Three to four shade trees located strategically around a house can cut summer cooling costs by 30-50%!***

Healthier children: Performing activities in green settings can reduce children’s Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder symptoms.**

I was sent a copy of the new DVD Wubbzy Goes Green. As always I popped it in the DVD player and watched along with my almost 3 year old who LOVES Wubbzy! I think it got both of us in the mood to plant our new flower and veggie seeds, as well as take care of our
Earth! A great DVD, full of inspiration and fun!

One lucky reader will get their own copy of Wubbzy Goes Green!

3 Ultimate Blog Party....AFTER PARTY!

Ultimate Blog Party 2010
It seems never-ending! Which is fine with me. For the past week I have been blog hopping through a lot of different blogs. Great blogs. It was nice to meet different people through the UBP because once you got to their blog, you already had one thing in common, and that's the UBP! I read a lot of interesting intros from people, and it was really fun. I didn't really take too much time to read a name in the linky list. I just kind of randomly clicked a name. That made it even better. I did visit quite a few blogs. At least 30! I plan to continue visiting new blogs into the rest of the year. I am posting just a couple blogs that I visited. I randomly chose these blogs out of the list of ones I visited, and they are in no particular order.

Hands, House, and Heart Full
Sugar Plum Treasures
The Creator's Palette
Bean Street Market

I want to urge you to view the comments on THIS POST and visit all the wonderful people who visited my blog during the party! Thank you to them!

0 The Madeline Movie, Lost In Paris
The Madeline Movie: Lost In Paris arrives in stores nationwide April 13th, 2010! That's today people!!! Let me tell you a little bit about the movie, then you must run out and grab one off the shelf before they are gone!

"Inspired by the beloved classic books that introduced us to a dozen delightful girls who live in an old house in Paris covered with vines, The Madeline Movie: Lost In Paris is full of spirited fun and five "fantastique" new songs. Screen legends Christopher Plummer (The Sound Of Music) and Lauren Bacall (The Big Sleep) co-star in the animated feature.

Both Plummer and Bacall had a big presence at this year’s Academy Awards® – Bacall was given an honorary Oscar for her work and Plummer was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Leo Tolstoy in The Last Station."

So, Madeline's long-lost Uncle Horst (Jason Alexander) visits unexpectedly and takes Madeline away. He promises her a new life, full of family and love. Soon into her new venture she realizes that her "new life" is not as great as she had expected. She uses her own wits and courage to get back the real family she has always known.

In my opinion, this is a great movie with a wonderful story. My daughter's eyes were fixated on the screen as she gave me a play by play account. Recognizing emotions, and happenings in the movie. Truly a great story! NOW is when you get up and go to the store to acquire your own copy of The Madeline Movie, Lost In Paris!

For some fun: Download this coloring sheet for during or after the movie!

Here is a clip to get you excited to go buy the movie!

Thank you to Shout! Factory for the information in this post as well as the copy of the DVD. I was in no way compensated for this review. The opinions in this review are mine only.
