Welcome to a summer of book giveaways! Every Saturday I will be posting a new giveaway.

This week is being sponsored by Wade Bradford, Anne Belov, and Tanglewood Press. To enter fill out the raffleocpter form. Open to the US and Canada. Please read terms and conditions.

Wade Bradford- Why Do I Have to Make My Bed?
Since ancient times, one question has endured in the hearts and minds of children: Why do I have to make my bed if it's just going to get messed up again? Now, Wade Bradford takes readers on a trip through time for a humorous look at how bed-making has evolved throughout history.  Using examples of household tasks that might have been performed in colonial America, in ancient Egypt, by Vikings, and so on, this clever examination of chore lore eventually reveals the answer to this age-old question. (Hint: Mothers throughout history have always had a ready response.) This book makes history so much fun, kids won't even realize they're learning. 

Anne Belov-  Pandamorphosis

Think playful pandas and you have a “what if” tale of transformation that will transport readers into a moonlit night of wishes and fantasy. Pandamorphosis, is a visual adventure that explores the unintended consequences of getting what you wish for. Follow a night of magic adventure as a young girl’s passion for pandas, her pet kitty, and pandas on the loose create fun and mayhem.

Penn/Gibson- A Kissing Hand for Chester Raccoon
The Kissing Hand has become a children's classic that has touched the lives of millions of children and their parents. A Kissing Hand for Chester Raccoon conveys the heart of the story in rhyming verse, perfect for read-aloud and easy for even the little ones to remember and recite. With illustrations by Barbara Gibson that capture the warmth and beauty of the original artwork, toddlers now share in the benefits from Mrs. Raccoon's secret for making a child feel safe and secure.

Hall/Bell- Miss You Like Crazy

Walnut and his mom agree that it would be fun if he could go to work with her, and they fantasize about the adventures they could share. Though it can't always happen, Walnut’s mother assures him that he is always on her mind, and together they find ways to have a physical presence for each other when at work or school. This light-hearted story provides parents an opportunity to reassure children on their importance in busy parents' lives.

  1. I love Miss You Like Crazy. I hadn't heard of a couple of these, so thanks for telling me about them. I'll pass on entering though. I'm just swimming in books right now.

  2. I may not be able to enter this time because of the country restrictions, but it's awesome to see you hosting this! I hadn't heard of this meme of giveaways before so it's interesting to see.
