A beautiful morning here in San Antonio, plus the boy is sleeping in which always makes the a.m. especially nice. As you know, today is the Great Monday Give, wherein I pluck a vintage (or reprint of a vintage) children's book from my own collection and share it with one lucky reader. This morning I have a sweet Weekly Reader hardcover edition of the John Burningham classic, Mr. Gumpy's Outing. Not sure why I've never reviewed this one before. It was one of the first library sale books I ever bought for my son. Regardless, it's a fine story, particularly if your child likes barnyard animals and to laugh. To be entered to win this tiny tale, simply comment on this post between now and 11:59 P.M. on Sunday night, May 2. A winner will be selected at random and announced the next day.
Speaking of which, the winner of the give from last week... a vintage hard copy of Petunia is..... john and catherine. Congrats and send me a note with your mailing info to webe(at)soon(dot)com. That's all for now.
