Great Monday Give: The Sunflower Garden

Welcome to the Great Monday Give, wherein I gift a vintage book from our collection to one swanky reader. Today's give is a hardback copy of The Sunflower Garden by Janice May Udry and Beatrice Darwin. All you have to do to be entered to win is comment on this post between now and Sunday, July 31 at 11:59 PM. A winner will be selected at random and announced the next day.

As for last week's winner of Lyle, Lyle Crocodile, that book goes to long-time reader wmmahaney. Congrats and e-mail me at webe(at)soon(dot)com with your info. I promise to ship it out ASAP, as I've been sick for weeks and haven't yet gotten the last two gives out, so I'd better get a move on before someone comes looking to poke me with a long stick. Whew.

Read along on Facebook, tumblr, Twitter and Etsy!

One day a sunflower appeared from nowhere in the plant box below my window! It just sprung up and brought such a cheer to me everytime I looked out the window! :) I would so love to win this book, as then I'd have the cheer all year round :) I promise I would take good care of it :) xoxo
