When I recieve this box from Scholastic it IS like Christmas Day over and over again! I get so much enjoyment knowing that I'll be recieving quality books that will change my life and my children's lives. I truly believe in their motto: Read Every Day. Lead a Better Life. So true.
That's why I've decided to have a book giveaway because they have sent me quite a few and I have to, need to, share the book love. Above is My Merry Christmas by Rosie Smith and Bruce Whatley (sorry if it's blurry). It has lovely illustrations inside and tells a story about what the animals are getting up to during Christmas time.
Here is the book Blossum Possum and the Christmas Quacker by Gina Newton and beautifully illustrated by Christina Booth. Blossum and her friends are desperately trying to wake up Koala Claus and it's a lovely journey that takes you through the bushland of Australia. I think the kids really enjoy stories that rhyme. I often stop before the last word to see if the kids can finish off the sentences.
You can't miss the classic Little Red Riding Hood by Alison Jay with cute illustrations. Your children will adore this book. The ending is changed a little so that your little ones won't be so scared. The huntsman ties up the wolf and he finds grandma and Little Red Riding Hood in the wardrobe! Ahh bliss.
She had a day care Christmas Party and I took all the kids this time without any incidents. We bought some raffle tickets and they had a little animal farm. Check out this lama! The youngest boy was cornered by the lambs which was rather funny. He thought they were going to eat him. Funny.
They kids had a bit of a dance. Did the YMCA (remember that?) Then they drew out the raffle prizes. There was one last ticket name after 5 or so winners. I kinda prayed that if we were deserving of a prize could we win and then they called my name out! Hurrah. That was funny too and we got a bag with a reed perfume diffuser inside. Nice.
The youngest boy loves Dinosaur Farm. At first it looks a bit wierd but it is so differently cool. I really enjoy reading this to them. We always read in bed and I am so thankful that Scholastic are printing some quality reads out there. Don't be shy and judge a book by it's cover though. It's the story that counts.
So, without further boring you, I would love to giveaway the first three books to one lucky reader. Please leave a comment. All entries welcome from around the world. I will announce the winner on Tuesday, 10th December and will post it out on Thursday.
Thankyou everyone. You can get back to your Christmas plans now.
