1st Annual Children’s Book Week Spotlight Giveaway Hop
Family Literacy and You
Many blogs are participating and offering a children's book related giveaway and the good news is that we're all linked up together so you can easily hop from one giveaway to another. This all takes place from Monday, May 2nd through Sunday, May 8th.
Now on to my giveaway... I'm giving away two books to one lucky winner...
Miss Dorothy and Her Bookmobile is a beautiful picture book that celebrates books and librarians.It's a touching story as it's based on the librarian, Dorothy Thomas, from the author's childhood. Dorothy loved books and people and when she was a young girl, she dreamed of becoming a librarian who would be in charge of a fine brick library just like the one where she checked out books. Yes, she graduated, ready to be a librarian, but her life takes a different turn when she marries and moves to the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.
Although she never reaches her dream of being in charge of that fine brick library, she's still able to show people the world through books in a way she never imagined. A beautifully written story that reminds us of those people who have touched our lives with books.
The Neighborhood Sing-Along is a collection of playground songs and classroom songs that everyone will recognize from their childhood. Nina Crews brings her energetic style of illustration to this collection of thirty-four perennial favorites. From "Miss Mary Mack" (watching fireworks from her balcony) to "London Bridge" (built by a brother and sister in the living room) to "Skip to My Lou" (in a rolling green park), the songs make this companion to the acclaimed The Neighborhood Mother Goose a treasure for anyone who loves to sing!
