*GIVEAWAY* The Adventures of Ai + Bonus

I hope that you all had a fantastic Labor Day weekend (or Wattle Day in the Land Down Under from what I've seen around)! I stayed pretty busy helping our adoptive Alaska family get their home ready for sale to move back to America, AKA the Lower 48. sad face.

However, I was also able read a fun ebook geared for 9-12 yr olds. I had to opportunity to read
The Adventures of Ai by Craig Bouchard.
Ai is a young Japanese girl from the early 16th century, who sets out on an adventure to reunite with her father after he's been gone for 3 years to study with Leonardo da Vinci. Her companions include her faithful horse, a bluebird, deer and some unexpected help.

This is a great book for quite a few different types of kids, in my opinion. It is part nonfiction and part fantasy. It intermingles art, history and mathematics into the story. It is fast-paced and an easy read. It also had a FREE GAME to go with it! You know those kids who love their video games.

 The game has the same title and follows the fantasy part of the story. It is fairly simple to play, but it's slightly different every life you start so it stays interesting. I started over quite a bit at first. :) You can also join the first-ever World Charity Cup, earning a cash contribution to help sick or disadvantaged children in your country. Pretty cool if you ask me.

Check out their video trailer for the ebook and the game.

The book is available through iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon. 
I read it a little on my iPad and on my Android phone. It was great. :)
