Enter The Wunderkind Family 'Guess Who Max Is?' Children's Book Giveaway

I'm excited to announce my first children's educational giveaway - The Wunderkind Family 'Guess Who Max Is?' Giveaway! Max is the newest pet in the next Wunderkind Family fantasy children's chapter book series, which will be released May, 2014. The Wunderkind Family children's chapter book series target age is for kids 6 to 12 years old.

This giveaway is a fun way to encourage children ages 6 to 12 years old to research and learn. A year ago, when my now nine year old son was eight years old, I had him research the type of bird he would like in this book and he chose Max's species!

Throughout the giveaway, I will be sharing clues to help your child in their guess. All clues will be posted at and communicated on my social media sites.

Guess the species of Max!

About 'The Super Secret'
Up until a few days ago, nothing extraordinary had ever happened in ten year old Josh Wunderkind’s life - except eating a whole pot of pasta by himself. But that all changed after a mammoth-sized bird hit him smack on the face with a glob of neon green bird poop. triggering his superhuman Wunderkind ability and leaving him with the responsibility of caring for a baby bird he named Max. Now Josh was just like his older brother and twin sister Madison-super extraordinary! But what Josh didn't realize was that being superhuman wasn't all fun and games.

And things only got more complex in Josh’s life when his two siblings and a couple neighborhood friends persuade him to lead a super crime-solving, neighborhood news team—the Gumshoe News Crew. But not before they agree on the Super Secret and complete Gumshoe Boot Camp.

    1. On behalf of Alexis and Ryan Willms: We think it is a Multi-Galactic Inter-Spatial Blue-Winged Sparrow.

    2. I think that Max is a Blue Winged Kookaburra - raptor bird

      1. My kids and I loved the bird you guessed! It isn't a Kookaburra. But I definitely can see the resemblance. I'll be posting another clue this Friday!!!

    3. I think Max is Falcon! What a fun way to host a giveaway :) Thanks for linking up on the Mommy Monday hop!
