A HUGE Christmas Giveaway!

I promised you an awesome giveaway and here it is! Sleeping Bear Press has kindly donated books from their Discover the World series for me to give to you...and if you read this blog, you know how awesome these books are. Included in this giveaway I have:

S is for Shamrock: An Ireland Alphabet
D is for Dancing Dragon: A Chinese Alphabet (pictured below)
B is for Big Ben: A London Alphabet

P is for Pinata: A Mexican Alphabet (pictured below)
A is for America: An American Alphabet

AND

They threw in A is for Abraham: A Jewish Family Alphabet...simply because it's the Hanukkah season, as well as the Christmas season.

AND

I'm throwing in a copy of A is For Amazing Moments: A Sports Alphabet.

You're getting 7 brand new books for your collection or your library's collection. All are hardcover, brand new, and great books for a huge age range...not just the little ones learning the alphabet. They teach about cultures in a very unique and approachable manner.

Leave a comment on this post by Sunday night to enter....post about this contest on your blog and tell me about it in your comment and you'll get FIVE extra entries. WAHOO!

Merry Christmas!
