Great Monday Give: Birds Do the Strangest Things

Lots to talk about.

First off, the Great Monday Give for this week is a nicely loved, ex-library but still awesome (with some slight scribbling on the end pages) hardcopy of Birds Do the Strangest Things. Great, great book, and one of my son's favorites. All you have to do to be eligible to win is comment on this post. Unfortunately, I am going away yet again for a long weekend... so the Give will have to be delayed by another week. As long as you comment by midnight ~ July 26 ~ Sunday, you'll be good to go. The winner will be announced the following day...

And speaking of the following day... July 27... that day is gonna be a whopper. July 25 marks my anniversary of doing this blog for two years. My birthday is the same week... so to celebrate... there will be a week of giveaways, reviews, special posts.... maybe even surprise guests... you won't want to miss it. Plus, I am going to spend the next few weeks culling my books again and posting them in the Etsy shop... and then come Monday the 27th... whatever is left will all go on sale for half price for a whole week. Seriously, I'm gonna be giving stuff away in there.

Whew.

All that said, let's give it up for Elizabeth who is now the proud owner of her very own copy of The Big Orange Splot. Email me at webe(at)soon(dot)com with your mailing address, and I'll ship it out sometime this week. Congrats! So long, farewell for now friends...

When my five year old daughter was really little, her favorite thing to ask was "tell me something bluejay, mommy?" and today her almost-two year old brother finally noticed the bluejays on our patio. This book would be very popular in our household!

I'd love to have this book. Michael Frith is a fun illustrator (Because a Little Bug Went Ka-Choo!), and writer (I'll Teach My Dog 100 Words). It will be pretty interesting to see him do realistic illustrations. Thank you for putting this one up!
