Giveaway: Wednesday’s Reading Day – Up to $20 in Children’s Books – 2 Winners

July 7, 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, the kids have become obsessed with wanting to read our Karen Katz Book Set that we have. They really get a kick out of the lift-a-flap pages. As we read them, they point to the body parts or say what’s hiding behind objects. I really like the style of the author and we are gradually picking up more and more of her other books, as well.

These are just some of the many books that we have been reading together this week.

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!

My son is currently addicted to the Little Critter books. His favorite that we’ve read to him every night this week is “Just Go to Bed”. Ironically, he needs to heed that advice himself!
