MBE partnered with Simon & Schuster for this review and giveaway

Fall & Halloween Kids Titles

You know what's really scary, but also exciting? The diverse array of all-new spooky children's books parents and kids from toddlers through teenagers will discover in Simon & Schuster's Fall 2020 youth collection. 

Fall 2020 New Kids Books

Among the season's 23 new titles literally covering the full age range of kids to enjoy are board books for toddlers; beautifully-illustrated picture books for preschoolers; fun titles for early book worms to read aloud; books to entertain seasoned middle grade readers of tweens; and several new dark and exciting Young Adult (YA) reads for the more independent teenage crowd.

Halloween Kids Board Books 2020

Board Books for Toddlers

Starting off, for the youngest kids are some adorable seasonally-inspired board books including In a Spooky Haunted House ($12.99) by Joel Stern, an author my family happens to know personally since he was my son's first origami teacher. Other cute sturdy Simon & Schuster books for little ones are a 3D novelty board book shaped like a cat called One Black Cat ($7.99) by Robie Rogge and Click, Clack, Boo! ($12.99), written and illustrated by the popular New York Times bestselling duo Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin who brought us Farmer Brown and his animal friends to young children's literature.

Fall Picture Books Kids 2020

Picture Books for Young Kids

For kids who enjoy being read to or even reading to a big brother, sister, or you, how about I Love My Fangs ($17.99) by Kelly Leigh Miller? Another new good one is The Little Kitten ($16.99) by Nicola Killen featuring interactive die cut pages. And for unicorn fans, check out Unicorns Are the Worst ($17.99) by Alex Willan, a funny and imaginative illustrated book about celebrating differences when a grumpy goblin first meets the new unicorns in the neighborhood. Also among the Simon & Schuster new fall picture books are In My Creepy Valentine ($17.99) by Arthur Howard; Spooky Sticker Surprise ($6.99) by Ryan Kaji, an interactive storybook which includes a spook-tactular sheet of stickers; and a scratch-and-sniff book called Daniel's Apple Picking Adventure ($8.99), adapted by Maggie Testa.

Fall Young Adult Books

Young Adult Literature for Ages 12-14 and Up

Last, but not least, are several new riveting dark YA Fall 2020 book releases perfect for the season of ghosts and goblins. For Age 12+ teen readers will want to check out Magic Dark And Strange ($18.99) by Kelly Powell. In this historical fantasy, think The Bone Witch meets Sherlock Holmes, a girl with the ability to raise the dead digs into the dark, dangerous and magical underworld to stop a series of murders.

2 Hearts Movie Review Now in Theaters


MBE partnered with Level3 Digital Media for this post and giveaway

Opens in Theaters Nationwide Today

Two hearts literally beat as one in this beautiful and romantic movie drama which opens today nationwide where theaters are now open. Based on a true and uplifting story, 2 Hearts (2020, Freestyle Releasing/AMT Productions, PG-13) is a film about family, hope and kindness which spans multiple generations, one that many will appreciate in these uncertain times we are all living through.

The Cast and Storyline 

Headlining the cast is heart throb Jacob Elordi, who romantic comedy movie buffs will remember from the movie The Kissing Booth. Elordi, an Aussie, delivers his lines so convincingly with the accent of the All-American college student Chris he portrays. Tiera Skovbye (The Miracle Season), a 25 year-old Canadian actress, plays Chris' love interest with strength and compassion. Among the others in major roles in this film are Mexican-American actor Adan Canto (X-Men: Days of Future Past) and Radha Mitchell (Dreamcatcher), an Australian actress who also shows off a well-practiced American accent.

As the film begins, the audience is introduced to the these seemingly unrelated key players. Over the course of the picture, through twists and turns, each character's connection to each other and to the plot is revealed. It's a movie which will remind audiences that even when the chips are down, there is still an abundance of love, selflessness, and generosity in the world to share with others across generations and cultures.
