Giveaway: $20 in Children’s Books from Amazon

August 13, 2010


(Sorry this is late this week!)

As promised, each Wednesday I am giving away children’s books (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.

Note: There are just three weeks left. So be sure you enter!

This week, I’ve been reading Apples, Apples! to my kids. It’s a lift-a-flap book talking about picking apples and all the things you can make with them. We are going on a family outing to pick apples soon so I thought it would be a good one to read so they can relate to everything when we go.

This is just one 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!
