Great Monday Give: Grover and the Everything in the Whole Wide World Musuem

Hello and welcome to the Great Monday Give, the moment when VKBMKL gives away one vintage kids' book to one lucky reader. After I posted on this book I got so many e-mails from people remembering it fondly.... and since I bought a replacement copy for the one my son lost only to find the original a few weeks later, I'll be parting with one so you guys can share the love. Therefore, the give for today is a good paperback copy of the out-of-print 1974 Sesame Street classic.... Grover and the Everything in the Whole Wide World Museum. All you have to do to be entered to win is comment on this post before midnight ~ March 22 ~ Sunday. I will post a winner the following morning.

The winner of last week's much-sought-after give, by the highly-technical blind scroll and point method is none other than longtime reader ali. I'm so psyched my finger was so serendipitously functioning this morning! Ali, e-mail me at webe(at)soon(dot)com and you'll be that much closer to having your copy of Too Many Mittens in hand. Later skaters.

Aha, the first comment! When I read your review of this, I really wanted to get my hands on a copy, and there is a chance now. But being the first, that is pretty slim, isn't it? Never mind, it will improve someone else's chances :)

God bless Grover! Thanks for making one of these available for a giveaway!

jamie said...

DanaCK said...

I'd love to share this with my 2 y/o, who knows that mama works in a museum but doesn't know *exactly* what that means. :)

Amy said...

I've been enjoying reading your reviews so much! And since I'm starting my daughter's collection, they've been an awesome resource!
I'd love to add this one! Thanks for the chance!

Super Grover! I have such fond memories of Grover from childhood-- this book, along with The Monster at the End of This Book, are classics. I also have to confess to owning a copy of the happening record, Grover Sings the Blues, as a child.

I remember this one from my childhood too. Oh what fond memories!

This is a great giveaway, though I don't need to be entered since I still have my original. My daughter loves it!

My mom just brought over The Monster at the End of This Book and The Many Faces of Ernie and they are also big hits. She also loves Big Bird Brings Spring to Sesame Street - thanks!

PS There's a Grover Sings the Blues album? How did I miss that??

This blog has been an incredible find as an art teacher - always looking for books to tie into lessons and old illustrators to bind myself to.
