*UPDATED TO ADD* Congrats to Everyday Mom on winning $25 in books! Email me! If you didn’t win, please feel free to shop at Usborne books on my sidebar!
Something wonderful has happened in my home.
Something I’ve wanted for a long time.
My kids have fallen in love with reading.
And books are at the top of their Christmas wish list.
(This is one of my favorite gifts to give and better than any toy!)
My daughter wants adventure novels. My son wants chapter books about pirates.
As a matter of fact, they both sold their well-loved Leapster’s on eBay and used the money to buy books. Because they couldn’t wait until Christmas. And because their poop business didn’t pan out.
I know. Prayers are heard, y’all. Especially since that first grader of mine whined and complained about reading only months ago! (And because I was never a fan of the poop idea).
So, you can imagine my excitement when Tressa of Usborne Books (my first sidebar sponsor!) offered one of my reader’s $25 in books today!
This is what I’m getting for my kids: My son would love this set. My 3rd great would think this is cool! And I’m going to throw this one in for my toddler. Because I’m thinking we need all the help we can get!
And so, now it’s your turn! Go and visit this great online book store. There’s great curriculum and activity kits too. Come back here and leave a comment about what you’d choose and Mr. Random Number Generator will choose a winner by Thursday at noon.
This is the beginning of many wonderful giveaways from creative, working moms. I have awesome giveaways planned from now until the week before Christmas, so stay tuned!
HI! I'm Kristen. I'm here to encourage you as a wife and mom and remind you there's a little bit of THAT family in all of us. I write books, run Mercy House and try to remember I am third (God first, others second). I'm glad you're here.
