Get Caught Reading Month Little Critter Giveaway

It’s May and it’s Get Caught Reading Month  and Silver Dolphin Books has a lot to celebrate with us this month! Such as a Little Critter GIVEAWAY just for sharing this information with my readers. How exciting.

FIRSTLY:  Beloved author Mercer Mayer and Little Critter are participating for the first time this year in the Association of American Publisher’s (AAP) national “Get Caught Reading” celebrity poster campaign. Created to inspire a love of reading in people of all ages, Mercer Mayer appears in a poster together with Little Critter as they are “caught reading” an original copy of the book, Little Critter’s The Trip, celebrating the print edition’s transition into Silver Dolphin Books award-winning app, The Trip – Little Critter Reading Adventure.  

Posters are made available to teachers and parents for use in classrooms, libraries and other locations throughout the country.  All posters are free, but the AAP asks that you pay $5.00 per set for shipping & handling, whether you order one poster or 12. A set is defined as any number of posters that you order between one and 12!  Posters can be ordered here!


Mercer Mayer had a few thoughts to share: “I am so pleased to be invited to participate in the AAP’s ‘Get Caught Reading’ campaign and to help bring awareness to this outstanding initiative and its mission.  I also want to celebrate how today’s technology is providing even more options to engage children in the joy of learning to read, and acknowledge the wonderful job that Silver Dolphin Books and app developer John Sansevere have done in creating an extraordinary and multi-dimensional digital experience of my original book, Little Critter’s The Trip.”

SECONDLY:  The Trip – Little Critter Reading Adventure was recently awarded The National Parenting Center’s 2013 coveted Seal of Approval.  


And now we would like to celebrate this great news with you in three ways!#1:  Silver Dolphin books has teamed with MerryMakers Inc. to offer a GIVEAWAY for my readers of their new Little Critter 11” doll.  This is the VERY FIRST time that Little Critter has been available as a doll!  It’s safe for all ages, perfect for ages 2 to 8, and retails for $18.00. The Little Critter Doll will be available for purchase at MerryMakers Inc. on May 20.

#2: Silver Dolphin Books is reducing the price of The Trip – Little Critter Reading Adventure app from $3.99to just $0.99, available worldwide through iTunes, , Barnes & Noble, Amazon, and Google Play.
