Giveaway: Wednesday’s Reading Day – Children’s Book Choice – 2 Winners

June 16, 2010


As promised, it’s Wednesday and I am giving away a children’s book choice (up to $20 to spend on children’s books on Amazon!) to two of my lucky readers. Each Wednesday through August, I’ll be doing this giveaway. It’s just my way of encouraging all of you to spend time each week reading with a child and sharing the love of books with them.


This week, I’m reading The Pizza That We Made and Pizza Pat to my kids. What I try to do with the books that we read is to match up a related activity to them throughout the week. So this week, we made some Pizza On A Stick. The kids had a blast!  While we were waiting for our bread to toast, we read both of these books. I think it helped them enjoy making their own pizza even more. The The Pizza That We Made has a recipe for making your own homemade pizza in the back but we haven’t tried it yet.

How This Giveaway Works
There will be two winners. Each winner gets to spend up to $20 on Amazon selecting children’s books. The winners can pick more than one book, just as long as the total value is $20 or less. The items must be in stock and ship free with Amazon Prime. I thought it would be fun to let the winner’s pick their own books than to choose a specific book to giveaway each week.

If this sounds like something you’d like to win, make sure you enter!

This week we have been laughing over Diary of a Fly, Diary of a Worm, and Diary of a Spider. I love these books not just for their humor, but the way they show friendship despite differences.
