Kid goodies giveaway: Win three great books!
Because I need to dedicate the rest of my life to wading through my 572 Disney photos, or at least the next day, I've got a nice giveaway to share in the meantime. Any of you familiar with the "If You Give A..." series of books by Laura Numeroff? Max and Sabrina are big fans of If You Give A Kid A Pancake, an adorable book.
Laura's partnered with Sleepy's and First Book, a non-profit organization that provides books to children in need, to promote bedtime reading. She's doing a series of readings of her latest book, The Jellybeans and the Big Book Bonanza, today in New York City at Sleepy's on East 86th, between 1-2. She'll also be in a Boston Sleepy's on 3/31 from 4-5 (727 Memorial Drive, Cambridge) and in a DC-area Sleepy's on 4/1 from 4-5 (401 Highway, Arlington, VA). You can visit Sleepy's Bedtime Stories for a chance to win lunch with Laura in New York City.
The Jellybean series is about a group of cute animals who call themselves The Jellybeans. In the new book, they take a trip to the library and find books on topics they love. Way to encourage reading! Laura's offered to give away a signed copy of The Jellybeans and the Big Book Bonanza, along with If You Give A Kid a Pancake and If You Give A Moose A Muffin to one winner, worth $50.
To enter, just leave a comment about your bedtime ritual with the kids. Ours can be a little erratic, but it usually consists of a bath, brushing teeth (sometimes we do Max's in the tub, he's less likely to mind it there), and then me sitting with the kids on the blowup beds in their rooms (yes, they're still sleeping on them!) and reading.
Note, you must leave your e-mail address if yours is not visible on your blog.
