Children's Book Week Giveaway Hop



Welcome to our stop on this Giveaway Hop. I love to read to small children. It's always how you carry out your voice while reading is what captivates a child. So I am always reading stories that are silly. I love Richard Scarry's book for the goldbugs on every page. I love watching children's faces light up when they find the teeny little bug!My other favorite middle grade series (and I have read them all) is the Fablehaven Series. Anyway, my giveaway is a $10 Amazon Gift Card!Once you are done here go below and check out the other blogs with their prizes!


Cars and Trucks and Things That Go by Richard Scarry.
Publication: June 1st 1998 by Golden Books.
The station wagon, the tow truck, the garbage truck and the bulldozer. Every manner of machinery that moves is riotously depicted in this classic favorite. As the pig family head to the beach for a picnic, they encounter every vehicle known, from the forklift to the locomotive, and many vehicles that are not as common, from the pumpkin car to the broom-o-cycle. Each detailed spread provides tremendous opportunity to make up stories and describe situations. Will Officer Flossy catch Dingo? Will Rollo Rabbit catch his runaway steamroller? And with literally hundreds of things to look at, youngsters will spend hours trying to find Goldbug on every page.


Fablehaven by Brandon Mull.
Audience/Genre: Middle Grade.
Publication: July 1st 2006 by Shadow Mountain.
For centuries mystical creatures of all description were gathered into a hidden refuge called Fablehaven to prevent their extinction. The sanctuary survives today as one of the last strongholds of true magic. Enchanting? Absolutely. Exciting? You bet. Safe? Well, actually, quite the opposite.

Kendra and her brother, Seth, have no idea that their grandfather is the current caretaker of Fablehaven. Inside the gated woods, ancient laws keep relative order among greedy trolls, mischievous satyrs, plotting witches, spiteful imps, and jealous fairies. However, when the rules get broken -- Seth is a bit too curious and reckless for his own good -- powerful forces of evil are unleashed, and Kendra and her brother face the greatest challenge of their lives. To save their family, Fablehaven, and perhaps even the world, Kendra and Seth must find the courage to do what they fear most.

    1. I don't know the Eleven Swans. I know the one of the 12 sisters who danced every night. Is that the same one?

      Delete
    2. No. The eleven swans is about a princess and her 11 brothers who are transformed into swans by their stepmother. The sister then must sew shirts made by nettles and also she must not sing or laugh or speak. The story is great and there was once a cartoon about it.
