Giveaway! Yeehaw!



Hello there all! I thought it was about time that I did another giveaway! This is a giveaway for the set of Loving the Little Years and Fit to Burst. We will give away three sets, with a random number generator drawing on Thursday. International readers are welcome to enter, no – encouraged to enter! I will let each winner pick which two books you want – so if you want to get two of the same one to share with a friend you can.

I snapped this picture on the patio table out back, and thought it was appropriate. Little Years has spaghetti on the cover (as modeled by Chloe), Fit to Burst has straggly popcorn, and my niece Marisol’s shoes, and the picture I took of these two books shows that people ran amok with sidewalk chalk on this very inviting surface. It’s all very true to life in my life.

One quick thing about entering the contest – Just leave a comment on the post to be entered! Yeehaw, and I hope you all win!

    Put my name is that little name generator would you please? I borrowed the Loving the Little Years from a friend and enjoyed it so much.
