Children’s Book Week Giveaway Hop

I have a copy of The Foot Book by Dr. Suess that my mother read to me when I was four years old. Now I’m reading it to my own four year old. And, hopefully, he’ll read it to his child someday. That’s the magic of children’s books — they hold memories and feelings inside their covers for decades.

So I couldn’t pass up the chance to participate in the Children’s Book Week Giveaway Hop. My giveaway includes three children’s books about adventures, a topic that fascinated me throughout my childhood.

Obookne signed, paperback copy of Barney and Barry The Hitchhikers (chapter book) by Sharon Powers. In this clever book aimed a kids aged 7-10, two bickering barnacles, Barney and Barry, attach onto an unsuspecting sea turtle named Fletcher. The adventure takes the trio on a journey through the sea with a cast of memorable characters as Fletcher learns hope to cope with two uninvited hitchhikers.

WallyBoardBookCoverFINALOne signed, paperback copy of Wally the Warm-Weather Penguin (picture book) by Stephanie M. Ward (me!).  The rhyming tale of a penguin who doesn’t like the cold and leaves his home in Antarctica in search of warm weather. But when he arrives in the Galapagos Islands he discovers an amazing world filled with tap-dancing crabs, diving birds with bright blue feet and racing 100-year-old tortoises.

ThreeOne signed, hardcover copy of Three Little Shrimp (picture book) by J. Steven Spires. The charming tale of three shrimp who get separated from their troupe (yes, that’s what a group of shrimp are called) and narrowly avoid danger at every turn.


And it’s all packed up in a “Say Yes to New Adventures” Canvas Tote Bag with some fun extras including postcards and a bookmark!

GIVEAWAY: Celebrating Children’s Book Week

A few months ago, if you had asked me what I was doing for Children’s Book Week or if I knew what a Blog Hop was, I probably would have tried to change the subject or just run away. But today, I’m thrilled to have my very own book to give away during Children’s Book Week (May 12 – 18th, obviously) in coordination with a fabulous group of kid lit authors, publishers and bloggers who are all participating in this awesome blog hop (where bloggers, authors, readers and others “hop around” between blogs and websites with posts on a common theme, of course).

Mother Daughter Book Reviews  and Youth Literature Reviews  are joining forces to provide you with the opportunity to take part in the Children’s Book Week Giveaway Hop 2014, featuring links to giveaways for fabulous children/teen’s books, gift cards, cash, or other prizes.  What better way to celebrate Children’s Book Week?

Well, I can’t think of a better way, but I can think of another way to celebrate. In honor of Children’s Book Week as well as Mother’s Day, I’d like to give a shout out to my favorite children’s book with a focus on moms…Are You My Mother? by P.D. Eastman. I have been enjoying this book for more years than I’ll ever admit. If you’ve never read this charming story, Mother’s Day is the perfect time to grab a copy and read it with someone you love.

Now, on to the GIVEAWAY already! Enter the Rafflecopter to win one of three ebook copies of Wally the Warm-Weather Penguin!
