Giveaway: $20 in Children’s Books on Amazon

August 4, 2010

As promised, it’s Wednesday and 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.


This week, I’ve been reading The Happy Man and His Dump Truck to my kids. This book has become one of their favorites. My son’s going through a big car/truck phase and my daughter is fascinated with animals. So it ends up working out for both of them with this book. The story goes on about a man in a dump truck giving a ride to a pig and his farm friends.

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!
