This week I'll use the Great Monday Give as a platform to honor two children's literature legends: Karla Kuskin, who died last week at the age 77, and Reading Rainbow which was canceled due to funding and aired its last episode on Friday after 26 years on the air. Well-loved as an illustrator (Roar and More), Karla is best known for penning the Marc Simont-illustrated classic The Philharmonic Gets Dressed which just happens to be a former Reading Rainbow title. So in honor of both these greats, I'll be giving away a nice, ex-library edition of the book to one lucky reader. All you have to do to be eligible to win is comment on this post before midnight, Sunday, September 6. A winner will be selected at random and announced the next morning.
Last week's Give of A Tree is Nice goes to Annette. Congrats and send me your info to webe(at)soon(dot)com. See you kids in two shakes of a lamb's tale!
