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

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 Chicka Chicka Boom Boom to my kids. I had bought this awhile back and put it in with a travel case of coloring books and such. Well, we haven’t used it in a long time. The kids asked to take the case out and what a nice surprise to find it.

Our book comes with a CD version, too. We haven’t listened to it yet, as I’m saving that for later in the week. But last night, the kids got the biggest kick when I had their Daddy bring home a real coconut. They got excited watching the coconut water pour out and then seeing how it looked when we cracked it open. Honestly, neither of them was overly thrilled with the coconut taste but they still had a lot of fun. My son told us that it came from “the coconut tree.” After reading it so much this week already, he’s picking up lines from the book. Eventually we’ll make something from the coconut shells, I just don’t know what 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.
