Abigail Spells...and a BIG giveaway!!

Abigail Spells, written and beautifully illustrated by Anna Alter (who I also showcased here), follows an adorable chicken named Abigail that loves doing everything with her best friend, George. The one thing Abigail loves doing on her own is spelling!! She spells when she brushes her teeth, when she eats lunch, when she goes to bed, and everywhere in between. When she sees a sign for a Spelling Bee, in which the winner gets to spell at the City Fair, Abigail knows she can win if she practices, practices, practices!

And practice she does! Abigail has everyone help her practice and when the big day arrives, Abigail, just knows she is going to win. And when she doesn't, her best friend George is there to help cheer her up.

An adorable book with an incredibly positive message, Abigail Spells is a fantastic book for libraries and home shelves.

The author and publisher are kindly willing to give THREE copies of Abigail Spells to my wonderful readers!!!

What a cute book, I would love to read this with my grandson. I think it is great that Anna goes to schools and talks about her book.
