Giving a Child the WorldThe book has been awarded to ERIN WILDER - congratulations.
In a previous post I suggested that giving a gift of a book was like giving a child the world. Readers are leaders and anytime we can encourage a child to read and anytime we can promote literacy with a specific child we are helping that child develop her/his leadership skills and giving them a key to the world.
With the help of 23 blogs and Albert Whitman & Company who have graciously agreed to provide AUTOGRAPHED books for this four days of giving; we collectively will be giving away nearly two dozen autographed books—books that you may gift to a child.
When I Feel Worried signed by Cornelia Spelman. Of this book, Kirkus Reviews said, "The charming illustrations extend the text by creating a believable setting for each sort of worry. . . This amusing but satisfying story will ease the worries of a nervous child or help more confident children to be more empathetic to the needs of a worried friend."
If you would like this autographed book to give to a special child in your life all you need to do is comment on this blog entry BEFORE 8:00 p.m. (CDT) on August 4, 2013. The comment must provide just one idea for encouraging a young reader to LOVE books.
On August 4th, after 8 p.m., we will announce the winner - as a final comment on the blog (and through e-mail, if possible). The announced winner must respond within 24 hours with the needed information (mailing address etc.) or we will select an alternate winner.
Enter now (just make a comment providing one idea for encourage a young child to LOVE books) and then visit these blogs for more chances to win other autographed copies. These other blogs will have their own procedure for entering to win the book being given from their blog site.
