{ALTERNATIVE ABCs and Patrick Hruby Memory Game}+Giveaway

"This is the board book that Soccer Moms run from and Rocker Moms gravitate to".
I love that quote from the AMMO Books website. I have always thought of my self as a rocker mom and knew we would love the ALTERNATIVE ABCs book. It is fun hip and edgy way to teach your kids their abcs. Each and every page is brightly colored with anything but traditional words for learning.  This book is defiantly for the cool mom, I think that is why I love it ;)   My kids love for me to go over the words with them and I think we all become a little cooler after reading the abcs the ALTERNATIVE way! It is a durable board book that is perfect for the younger ones and really cool for dads to. My husband loves this book and has had an awesome time reading it with our 2 year old. I think my favorite is I for Ink,  M for Mohawk, and S is for Skull. This is a great book jammed packed with all the good words for your little rocker to learn! It is available for 14.95 from AMMO Books.

This alternative ABC board book features original, colorful, and graphic illustrations and typography by Southern California based designers Eric Ruffing and Dave Parmley of 13THFLOOR.
In this humorous and hipster take on a traditional ABC board book for kids, the alphabet here reads: F is for Flames, M is for Mohawk, P is for Peace, and S is for Skull. This is the board book that Soccer Moms run from and Rocker Moms gravitate to.
Aesthetically borrowing from street, surf, skate, and music subcultures, the custom design and typography beautifully spell out this unique alphabet. From Calligraffiti to Pin-Striping, and from Goth to Punk, this little book crosses genres and is sure to create a buzz.
And thanks to AMMO Books, we received the Patrick Hruby Memory Game! My kids absolutely love playing it. We were very excited to play with these different vibrant cards. The bright colored illustrations are far from the typical memory games. Each and everyone is more beautiful from the last. I found that my kids kind of were as into just looking at them as they were into matching them. This game comes complete with 72 cards/36 pairs with directions for older and younger kids. It is really a fun spin on an old game and can be purchased for 15.95 from AMMO Books.

I'd like to win the book because although my daughter would enjoy the game, we've got an infant in the house so I'd like to minimize game pieces floating around
