I have some of the BEST books of the year on my shelves.
Mysteriously, I have more than one copy of a couple of them.
And I'm willing to share.
Since I'm taking a forced break from blogging as I head to the land of pitiful internet where I'll read and reflect and stay off Facebook and blogs for a bit, this giveaway will last a week.
And here are the goodies I'm going to mail to one lucky winner.
1. DOUBLE DOG DARE. If you don't know Lisa Graff's books, this is the perfect back-to-school place to begin. And teachers? It's bound to be one of the most fun read-alouds. I'm particularly fond of the dare involving green hair. But there's a lot of depth to the story, the characters, the writing.
Here's a link to a really good interview with Lisa on Barbara O'Connor's blog. Complete with pictures and videos.
2. Scholastic sent me two copies of Carole Geithner's IF ONLY. I'll include one in your winning package. Click here for a link to the author's website, including an excerpt from the book. A serious topic, well-handled.
3. Last but far from least. My Baltimore connection, Natalie Standiford's newest: THE SECRET TREE. The bloggers at Waking Brain Cells called it the "ideal summer read." I agree.
Check out their review right here.
All that's required of you is a comment. Feel free to share this.
The books will be whisked off anywhere in the USA.
Winners announced on August 15, when I re-enter the world of connectivity.
