Giveaway: $20 in Children’s Book on Amazon

Well, this is the last week I am giving away up to $20 to spend on children’s books on Amazon to two of my lucky readers. I’ve been doing this every week from June-August as a way to encourage everyone to spend time each week reading with a child and sharing the love of books with them. I’ve enjoyed sharing my picks with you and hearing what you have been reading to your children, too. Thank you for sharing!

This week, I decided to pull out the stock of Dr. Seuss Books that I’d been saving for the kids. They have been willing to listen to longer books lately so I thought they were finally ready to enjoy them. It was so much fun sharing The Cat in the Hat and The Cat in the Hat Comes Back with them. My son got a kick out of the Little A and Little B popping out from under the hat.

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. Since Amazon has the 4-for-3 promotion on a lot of their books, several of the past winners have been able to get 5-6 books for their kids when they win!

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

    Reading books to a child is such a precious gift to give! This week my one year old and I are reading many books, but her favorites include Piggies, Dr. Seuss’ ABC book, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, and especially Little Mommy (a Golden Book).

  2. Rachel says

    This week I have several from the library that I’m reading to my daughters, but one that come to mind is “Tippy-tippy-tippy Hide”. Thanks for this giveaway!! We love books here!!

  3. Chrissy says

    I have 2 daughters ages 2 and 5 who love books…EVERY morning when making their beds i find books in the bed with them,under pillows,on floor,etc. They lay and read (my 5 year old is learning to read) and look at books till they fall asleep.Currently we are reading a book about Christopher Columbus…my daughters favorite history lesson so far. And one of their favorite books and one my daughter can read herself is Dr.Seuss’s Green Eggs and Ham !
    So $20 worth of new books would thrill my daughters and further encourage them to read…

    #4- I think it is so important to read to children and to have them read themselves. It is a passion of mine to read and has been since I was a child. My dad was an avid reader and it was passed on to me. I tried to pass it on to my kids as well as to my granddaughters.

    I am reading Winners Never Quit by soccer star Mia Hamm to my two boys and I am doing so for multiple reasons: one because I think it has a great message- esp. important as school and sports start back up- and also because I want my boys to know that women are as capable as men.
