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 2, 2011. If you are a blogger, create a list of your favorite Chronicle books (up to $500 worth) and send your URL to the link above. If you win, Chronicle will give you the books you listed, plus donate $500 worth of books to your favorite charity (new this year). Mine would be the Chandler Public Library).
And, if you leave a comment on this post and I win the blogger contest, then you might win too. One commenter on the winning post will win the books listed on that particular blog as well.
It was fun looking through all the books at Chronicle and figuring out which ones some of the children I know might appreciate. Of course, my list is full of science and nature nonfiction titles and Chronicle has some very fine ones. (Links take you to the full product description at Chronicle.)
