Hoppy Easter Eggstravaganza Giveaway Hop

Do you like free books? Then you came to the right place--the Hoppy Easter Eggstravaganza Giveaway Hop hosted by I Am a Reader, Not a Writer and Once Upon a Twilight.

What better way to celebrate Easter? 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. This all takes place from Wednesday, April 20th through Monday, April 25th.

Last One in Is a Rotten Egg! (Gilbert and Friends)Now on to my giveaway. I'm giving away a copy of Last One in Is a Rotten Egg! (Gilbert and Friends) by Diane deGroat and a hardcover copy of Beautiful Blue Eyes by Marianne Richmond.

Last One in Is a Rotten Egg! (Gilbert and Friends) is the perfect book for Easter. Children's book fave, Gilbert, is back and this time he's excited because his cousin Wally is coming. But Wally is much bigger than when Gilbert saw him last. Wally's favorite saying seems to be, "Last one in is a rotten egg," and when they head to an Easter egg hunt, Wally wants nothing more than to win, even if it means not helping Gilbert and his sister. However, in the end, when Wally finds the most eggs, Gilbert knows just the way to remind him who the rotten egg really is!

Beautiful Blue EyesBeautiful Blue Eyes by Marianne Richmond is just the book you need to remind your little ones how unique they are. In a follow-up to Richmond's Beautiful Brown Eyes, this is the perfect book for any parent with a child who bats those baby blues.

I watched and I waited
as your eyes chose their hue,

deciding in time on their beautiful blue.

Blue as a butterfly

or the sparkling sea.
Blue as the bluebird who sings in her tree.


The rhyming text makes for a fun read-aloud and young readers will learn all the ways eyes tell us so much about each other. How they show originality, silliness, thoughtfulness, curiosity and more. This sweet story introduces young readers to a range of emotions and reminds them of the love between parent and child. A must have to share with the blue-eyed boy or girl in your life.
