I would love to win this book because I love to bake, I love candies, I love to make fun things for my two lil boys and I always try to make things interesting for them to eat as their reward for their good behavior. I’m also from Puerto Rico and is not so easy for me to travel to meet Courtney and get a signed copy of her book. I have her Push up pops book and we love it.

Tonya Wagner SAYS:

This looks amazingly simple and fun! I need help when it comes to making food fun for my kids and when I find the right recipe I love to share it with my three boys. And these look like they are recipes my kids could make on their own (they love to make surprises for the family)! Thank you for considering me and my boys for this giveaway.
