It's A Giveaway!!!

Yep - you got it - I have a great little item here that I want to pass along to those that can use it!! It is a Bright Ideas Calendar by McDonald Publishing. 365 Language Arts Activities for Grades 1-3. (The picture here is for the upper grades - but I wanted to at least show a picture so you could see what it looked like!) Kelly at Big A Little A had this to say:

Cloudscome (A Wrung Sponge) has brought an idea whose time has come into the kidslitosphere. (Original idea from a blog called overwhelmedwithjoy.) Here are
the details. I must admit upfront that I've changed the original rules to fit with the kidlit book world.

1) Once a month I'll pick a book (or two) to give away to one (or two) lucky reader(s) (you don't have to have a blog to enter). It may be a book that I've purchased
new or used, or it may be an ARC or a review copy of a book I've recently reviewed.

2) You can enter by leaving a comment below AND - if you have a blog - creating a post about it on your blog and a link back to this post. I will notify a winner on Aug. 20.

3) I took out rule #3, because I want people who don't maintain blogs to play. However, please feel free to pay forward the same book after you've read it on your own blog if you do keep one.

4) If you're really motivated and want to host your own "Pay It Forward" giveaway at any time, feel free to grab the button above to use on your own blog. Just let her know so she can publish a post plugging your giveaway and directing readers your way!Let's get some books zipping about the kidlit book world.

So this month I am kicking it off here at my blog! This one may be one you choose not to "pay forward" and that is just fine! You just keep it and enjoy if you choose! Most months I will be giving away a book or novel, but this month (before school starts) I thought this one would be fun! So leave a comment - and I hope you win!!!

I am so glad you are joining this! I think it is a brilliant idea and I can't wait to see it spread. I already have one of those calendars and they are great! I hope another teacher or homeschooler wins it.
