Great Monday Give: The Country Bunny

Hello one and all. Today is the day VKBMKLs gives away a vintage kids' book to one lucky reader... usually this little contest runs for a week but seeing as I'm going on vacation, we're gonna run it for two weeks, OK?

To celebrate the upcoming holiday, the giveaway is a nice, vintage paperback copy of last year's Easter pick, The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes. All you have to do to be entered to win this wonderful ditty is leave a comment on this post before midnight ~ Sunday, April 19. A winner will be selected and posted the following day, then we start all over again, got it?

The winner of last week's give, the incredible Space Witch? Brimful Curiosities. Email me at webe(at)soon(dot)come and I'll try and get it in the mail before I blast off. That's it for now... As you were.

I'm the first commenter! Hooray! I would love to win. I love vintage childrens books and would totally save it for my kids in the wayy future!

This book was a favorite of mine that our Director at Carden School always read to us each spring. I was so happy to see it on your website! My own six children are not so well-trained, but it reminded me of my friend whose children truly are this wonderful. Right now she is in treatment for cancer and her lovely family is taking care of her and her home. I was hoping to share the book with them. I think they could use a pair of little gold shoes to help in this long journey back to health!

Oh, my 5-year-old would love this. She loves bunnies. A couple weeks ago she told me she wants to be a bunny trainer when she grows up. :)

I wanted to win this until I read Julie Schindler's comment just now. I don't know her (honest!) but what a heartbreaking post. I hope she wins -- please take my name out of the running.

Today my pup and I went to Voelker Park. We sat on a rock and watched birds, lizards and people. I wondered how many children's books were inspired by such simple quiet moments when great thoughts stream into our minds on quiet sunbeams.

Could The Country Bunny be one?

Thanks for your very precious blog - it is the quiet rock I visit on the Internet.
