Chronicle Books is getting into the spirit of the season with a Happy Haul-idays give-away contest open until December 10, 2010. If you are a blogger, create a list of your favorite Chronicle books (up to $500 worth) and send your URL to the link.
And, if you leave a comment on this post and I win the blogger contest, then you might win too. One blogger and one commenter on the winning post will each win the books listed on that particular blog.
I had fun looking through all the books at Chronicle and figuring out what some of the children I know might appreciate. Of course, my list is full of nonfiction titles, and Chronicle has some very fine ones.
