Book Give-a-way & Five Star Book Lovers Holiday Sweeps Contest...


The shopping days are getting shorter and shorter.  Do you have all of your gifts purchased?  What about stocking stuffers? I have been working on stocking stuffers for the boys and there is one thing that I am including in both of their stocking's this year and that is books.  

Jace is in 1st grade and it's amazing how well he can read already. He loves books and it's neat because he can read little stories to his brother too. Grady can't read yet, but loves being read too which is so important.

With that being said I'm excited to be able to host a great give-a-way today that includes 3 books!  Let me tell you a little about each...

1. Last Night I Had a Laughmare! Bedtime Adventure in Gigglyville by J.E. Laufer is the first book. This book is out just in time for the holiday season and my kids absolutely love it.  They loved the character's --Liverlips, Smellyfeet and Purplepudding who live in Gigglyville.  It's a magical adventure that will keep your kids laughing 'til morning! 

2. Next up is Burton the Kind Scarecrow by V.A. Boeholt.  This book is one of 5 titles that will be included in the Burton the Scarecrow--Friendship Tales from the Farm series. Books will include: Burton, The Kind Scarecrow (July 2012), Burton and the Christmas Tree (September 2012), Burton's Friendship Garden (January 2013), Burton Helps Dixie Duck (March 2013) and Burton's Harvest Party (July 2013). 

Boeholt has created a world of discovery for young readers that enriches their minds with endearing lessons about friendship, problem-solving and character building. You will love that each of these books is augmented with a glossary to expand children's vocabularies, questions to encourage in-depth discussion and suggestions for supplementary activities.

3. The last book up for grabs is The Band Plays On: Going Home For A Music Man's Encore from the Fanfare for a Hometown book series by Dr. Rick Niece.  Celebrating the soul of America’s heartland, The Band Plays On is Rick Niece’s heartfelt tribute to friendship, community, and, most importantly, his father, Lewis Niece. When DeGraff, Ohio’s beloved band teacher is invited to direct an encore performance, “Lewie’s Alumni Band” gathers to celebrate with gusto. As the band practices for its final parade, Rick, his baritone in tow, reflects on treasured memories, relationships, and the legacy of a small town with indomitable spirit. The second volume in the delightful Fanfare for a Hometown series, The Band Plays On provides an entertaining, inspirational glimpse into lives richly lived…and shared.
