Welcome to my tour stop for Six Thousand Doughnuts by Thomas Tosi and illustrated by Meaghan Tosi. Before we get to the fun giveaway, I have a quick book review to share.

Six Thousand Doughnuts by Thomas Tosi

Review by Lauren

review copy; all opinions are my own

This book is about fifth-grader Abe Mitchell and how he always has to share everything with his four other siblings, twin older brothers and an older sister, and one younger sister. When he asks his dad if he can peel off his coffee cup’s coupon, he sees that he’s won a free doughnut! But even better? The tiny details on the back of the coupon – after doing some intricate math – reveals that Abe can get six THOUSAND doughnuts for only three bucks!

  • Abe was a fun character to read about. He doesn’t always do the right thing, but he definitely has a good heart and ultimately doesn’t want to hurt anyone.

  • I loved getting to know Abe’s whole family, including his parents and cousin who moves in with the family! They all came alive on the page for me.
  • The black and white illustrations were fantastic and I absolutely adored the fact that Thomas Tosi’s daughter, Meaghan, was the one who drew them. She’s a wonderful artist.

  • The book is marketed for 8-12 year old kids, which I think seems appropriate. I know my ten year old niece would probably really enjoy this one!
  • Six Thousand Doughnuts is full of little lessons but nothing super preachy.

  • I think this would be a fun book for parents or classrooms to read out loud to one another. It’s not terribly long and it’s full of fun, over-the-top (yet still entirely realistic) scenarios.

  1. I love a book with a few lessons learned along the way! (But, yes, not in a preachy way!) I’m going to enter the giveaway! My 10 year old nephew would love this book!

  2. I love that Abe is a character who despite his good heart doesn’t always do the right thing and I like the illustrations which have a very unique style. This sounds like a fun read, that there are a few lessons learned along the way, great.

  3. One of the reasons I enjoy MG books is because they don’t tend to be preachy (the way many YA and adult authors can). This looks really cute too

  4. This sounds like such a fun book! I love doughnuts. Especially the sour cream old fashioned kind! And blueberry cake! Then of course the super fun seasonal ones at our local place like lavender lemon and red velvet.

  5. I like a book with a message. Sometimes my students would pick up on subtler messages and themes than I did in the books I read with them. Happy memories!!

    These illustrations are energetic and fun. And who doesn’t love doughnuts??
