Great Monday Give: Welcome Home, Henry

My son is five. Lord. Half a decade of reading aloud... non-stop. Whew. Man, my vocal cords need a rest, and after a weekend of partying five-year-old style, a foot massage wouldn't hurt either.

That said... I'm gonna begin giving away some of his books that he's not that attached to, beginning with today's Great Monday Give... a swanky design-ish book I reviewed a while back... a book that was featured when boing-boing gave me a shout out, Welcome Home, Henry. All you have to do be entered to win this awesome vintage book is comment on this post before Sunday, May 9 at 11:59 PM. A winner will be selected at random and posted the following day. As was the case with last week's give of John Burningham's Mr. Gumpy's Outing which I will be sending to pambelina as soon as she e-mails me her shipping info to webe(at)soon(dot)com. Now time to sleep for a million years. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

To me, reading and rereading and, then, reading children's books some more is a daily, soothing cup of kindness served up with a delicious chunk of sweetness broken away from that house Hansel and Gretel once happened on! It's one of my favorite things to do. I am so happy I found your blog! Consider me "entered"? Thanks! Your new regular reader, SparkleFarkle~~~~~*
