What is better than all the Black Friday bargains? A chance at some free children’s books without ever leaving the house!
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.

Great idea to concentrate on the non-fic. I love your present graphic! I think my entire family would love the Birdscapes: A Pop-Up Celebration of Birdsongs in Stereo Sound. Good luck with the giveaway!
Love how creative you got with your list. I’m starting to wish I’d picked a few more kids books after seeing yours. 🙂
An awesome list with a couple of really unusual choices that I haven’t seen anywhere else that I would love to read. Very different–for the most part–from the ones I selected See My List Here but a really delightful list nevertheless.
