Books Complete Me and I Am a Reader, Not a Writer.
What better way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day? Over 200 participating blogs are offering a book related giveaway and we're all linked up together so you can easily hop from one giveaway to another. The hop runs from today through Sunday, March 20th.
Now on to my giveaway, which includes 3 books...
I don't know about you, but I loved the movie Ice Age and I can't wait to see the new movie, Rio from the creators of Ice Age. If you're looking to get your young readers excited about the movie, how about sharing the books? In Rio: Greetings from Rio! (paperback), Blu, a rare blue Spix's Macaw introduces you to some of the sights in Rio de Janeiro. Your young readers will learn what Rio de Janeiro means, the city's nickname, some of the characters in the movie and even some of the adventures that you have to look forward to when you make your trek to the theater.
And in Rio: Birds of a Feather (paperback),Blu is happy living in Minnesota with his best friend, Linda. But when a bird scientist tells Linda that Blu is the last male blue Spix's Macaw in the world, he's taken to the Brazilian jungle to meet a female blue Spix's Macaw named Jewel. Things get exciting as a bird smuggler plots to steal the two valuable macaws and sends his evil cockatoo, Nigel to kidnap them. Will Blu have what it takes to survive?
And last but not least, Rio: The Movie Storybook (hardcover) will really give you a good sense of what you can expect from the movie. Follow Blu's adventures as he travels to the faraway and exotic land of Rio de Janeiro to find Jewel, the only other bird of his species. Not long after Blu and his owner, Linda, arrive in Rio, Blu and Jewel are kidnapped by a group of bungling animal smugglers. With the help of a group of wisecracking and smooth-talking city birds, Blu will escape the kidnappers, learn to fly, and return to Linda, the best friend a bird ever had.
The bright, vibrant illustrations will have your young readers counting down to see the movie. And after they've seen it, they can relive it by reading these three great books!
