GIVEAWAY $50 Worth of Free Educational Books



Last year at this time I went to a home party where my friend Sharee (well I did not know Sharee at the time, but we are friends now) was showing us her cool educational books. She had so many neat books for all ages. She really got me thinking about how important it is to read to your children. I wish you could all see her presentation because she gets you so excited about the books. They are so cool!
Sharee, who is a consultant for Usborne books, has offered a generous giveaway
$50 in free books.
It is really easy to enter just visit her site http://www.readonemore.com/ and browse through the books. Then leave a comment letting us know which books you will get if you win.

Can’t wait to start reading? Email Sharee at sharee.owings@yahoo.com for a fabuless sale.
UPDATE: We are offering one more way to win. Post about this giveaway on your site and include a link. Then leave a comment giving us the site address so we can verify.
.
Giveaway ends Wednesday March 18th at 10 p.m. MST. Winner will be announced on Thursday March 19th by 10 a.m. Guess what I make the rules so writers on this blog can enter, but we will choose the winner using RANDOM.ORG so don't worry I will not rig it so I win. I would sure like to though. Thanks Sharee for such an awesome giveaway. We are so excited to have you and your wonderful company on the site.

There are lots of fun-sounding books! I thought See Inside your Body, the Illustrated Dictionary of Math, There's a Mouse about the House, and Animal Hide & Seek sounded neat.

Jaris said...

I love them all, You can never get enough books. There is a mouse in my house looked great.

Tricia said...

I love Usborne books. I have bought them before - The Number Train book is awesome - with puzzle pieces that come out for each number, then hook together to actually make a train! My son loves this. I also recently bought the Alphabet one that does this too, but it's for a birthday down the road. Some of our other favorites are the "That's not my...(dog, dinosaur, princess, dolly,etc)" series. They have different textures in them. Would love to win more!

krista said...
