I've been promising and promising a big giveaway for the Holidays and the day is finally here. I couldn't decide if I wanted to do one big giveaway or just do a bunch of smaller ones, finally choosing just one, huge, big, giant, giveaway. Lots of books to be had! You can keep all of these or give them out as gifts to your kids, nieces, nephews, etc. It's a great way to knock some names off the list to buy for!
Princess Tea: Parties and Treats for Little Girls by Janeen A. Sarlin with Noelle Shipley and photographed by Sheri Giblin.
-This is an awesome choice for parents or grandparents of young girls, itching to get some ideas as to how to entertain them. Throwing a tea party is an excellent idea and this book is chock full of ideas as to how to make it a success. Crafts, receipes, decorations, etc. A great resource for party planners as well!
Countdown to Christmas by Dr. Mary Manz Simon and illustrated by Siobhan Harrison.
-If you have a toddler and are wanting to teach about the true meaning of Christmas, this would be a really nice book to have in the house. Starting with December 1st and working up to December 25th, each day tells part of the story leading up to the birth of Jesus, along with an activity, a scripture verse, and fill-in-the-blanks to help get the child really involved in what you're reading.
I'm definitely giving this one as a gift for a 2 year old this year, in hopes that she will be old enough to understand it next year.
3 books from the "What's the Weather Like" series by Lerner. Include are: It's Cloudy Today, It's Snowy Today, and It's Windy Today.
-You can read my full review here. These are really heavy-duty non-fiction books, great for a homeschooling family or just a family that likes to learn about different aspects of our weather.
Secrets of a Christmas Box by Steven Hornby
-I haven't had a cance to read and review this one yet, as I've been waiting for December to get in the mood for Christmas stories, but I received two copies and thought it might be nice to add this one into the pot. It appears to be aimed towards the 9-12 set and may make a nice family read aloud in the days before Christmas arrives.
To Whom the Angel Spoke: A Story of the Christmas by Terry Kay
-I reviewed this one here this week. A great family Christmas story.
