Stella and Sam Book Series – 7 Days of Giveaways


Here we go…
Happy Anniversary to me. Today it has officially been one year since I started City Mom. So let’s get to the good stuff.

I present to you the first of seven exciting giveaways.

Back in April I wrote about the children’s TV show Stella and Sam on Disney Junior Canada. This cute show was adapted from a book series by Canadian author Marie-Louise Gay.

Part of reviewing the show included reading one of the books so we could get to know the characters ‘in real life’. Little S and I both loved the book as much as we loved the show.

Stella and Sam

This series is very engaging for young children. The characters are so loveable it makes for an enjoyable read for both parent and child.

When I was offered a chance to read the rest of the Stella and Sam series I knew they would make a perfect feature for the 7 Days of Giveaways celebration. Every child should own a set!

Now that we’ve had a chance to read the entire series, and you will too! Read on to find out more about this sweet brother and sister duo, then you’ll get a chance to win the series yourself.


All of the Stella and Sam book are available in French and English.

Stella Star of the Sea

Stella and Sam visit the sea. Stella has been there  before but Sam has not. It’s the perfect opportunity to teach Sam all about the ocean.

Stella Queen of the Snow

Sam has more questions for Stella as they spend the day playing in the snow. Snow angels, snowballs and the mysterious white stuff…oh my!

Stella Fairy of the Forest

Stella and Sam visit the magic forest. They encounter butterflies, snakes and sheep and of course Sam is full of questions and Stella is full of answers.

Stella, Princess of the Sky

The night sky provides another adventure for Stella and Sam. Different creatures come out at night. Raccoons, fireflies, bats and tree frogs. Learn more about these mysterious creatures along with Sam.

When Stella Was Very, Very Small

We’ve gotten to know Stella pretty well by now but this book shares a unique look at a time when she was a baby and didn’t know the things she knows today. It’s a chance to get to know Stella better and learn where she gets her wild ideas from.

Good Night Sam

Sam’s beloved dog Fred goes missing and Sam is worried because he knows Fred is afraid of the dark. Stella helps Sam search everywhere.

What Are You Doing Sam?

Another look at Sam and his dog Fred; they get up to all sorts of things as Stella observes and shares her opinion…no surprise here!


This is the first of seven giveaways for the City Mom Blogiversary celebration. The winner will receive the complete Stella and Sam book series as featured in this post.
