Delia's Dull Day and a fun giveaway!

I know I typically stick with posting picture books on my weekly Picture Book Saturday, but I didn't want to wait on this one. It's too cute! Plus, I have a really neat giveaway for you all at the end of the post -- enter until Friday! 

Delia is convinced that nothing ever happens to her. The daily experiences she has are boring, expected, and totally dull. However, if Delia would simply look up and take in the world around her, she would realize that a whole lot is indeed happening, right in front of her face!

Kids will love being in on the joke, as all sorts of silly and outrageous shenanigans go on around Delia, while she's convinced that everything from breakfast to the bus ride from school is incredibly dull! This would be great to start a discussion about appreciating the things that do happen during the day, even when we think everything is completely ordinary. You could also use this to inspire an art project -- have your kids/students draw their own "Delia" type illustration. 

Which leads me to the giveaway! I have up for grabs a signed poster featuring an illustrated page from the book, as well as a copy of Delia's Dull Day for one of you! Author/illustrator Andy Myer has created a really fun illustrations and it would make a great gift for a special reader in your life. Or hang it up in your classroom to inspire!

Just leave a comment on this post by Friday night and I'll pick a winner Saturday. Make sure I have a way to get in touch with you.  U.S. only please. 

Thank you to Sleeping Bear Press for sponsoring this awesome prize!
