Great Monday Give: Grimm's Fairy Tales/Babar

Wow. I feel guilty for only posting on two books last week, so get ready for some zingers during this one. And to start it off right, here's the Great Monday Give. I've mentioned the books in the 'Dandelion' series also known as the 'Read Me a Story Program'... yes? no? Well, I came across a duplicate copy of one I reviewed, and I want to pass it along to one of you guys. The hardcover, vintage flip book of Grimm's Fairy Tales and Babar the King. To be entered to win, all you have to do is comment on this post before midnight ~ September 27 ~ Sunday. I'll select a winner at random and post the results the next day. Two books for one, can't beat that with a stick.

As for last week's give.... the winner of I am a Bunny is Urban Farm Wife. Send me your mailing info to webe(at)soon(dot)com and I'll send it out this week... congrats! And bye bye birdies.

wonderful...to find age doesn't matter in recalling the sweet stories of morality from youth! there will never be anything 'grimm' about 'babar' and the many lessons we learned from each adventure.

here is to keeping that part of our youthful hearts alive!

Ooh, these would be so lovely, especially as Babar is a big hit in this house at the mo (it was my youngest's first two-syllable word about a week ago!).

The two most read books in my childhood...now I have a chance to add them to my son's growing (how much weight is safe on an upper floor) library. I just love reading the blog and seeing something new and something old each day.

Would love this - our library doesn't have all the Babar books and this is one that they are missing...and is it possible to have too many fairy tale books?

OC wanderer said...

I would hope to add Babar to my collection. My 2 yr old loves elephants. We actually have that book checked out from our library right now.

Amy said...

I love Babar books! I remember them fondly... I hope my kids enjoy them as much.

What a wonderful giveaway! My daughter loved the Babar books when she was little. Now she could read to her son, my grandson, and share the memories with him. I would also love to read Grimm's Fairy Tales. We could just have a three generation reading party.

thank you,

Mommy said...

Our two and a half year old (Lily) is really into fairy tales so we keep bringing home different compilations from the library and it's so interesting to see the variations. Would love to see how this one compares, and Babar is a great bonus!

My sisters and I read Grimm's Fairy Tales so many times when we were little that it finally fell apart. It's amazing to still be able to find these books almost fifty years later. You stir so many good memories. Thank you.
