Great Monday Give: Mystery Ten-Title Grab Bag

A little late in the day for the Great Monday Give, I know, but better late than never, yes? This week, I've decided to clean house and give away a grab bag of at least ten fabulous vintage children's books. The books will be generously picked and awesome and guaranteed previously loved, not just by my child, but potentially by generations of children before him. You can't beat a promise like that!

All you have to do to be entered to win is comment on this post between now and July 8, Sunday at 11:59 CT PM. A winner will be selected at random and announced the next morning.

And now for the winner of last week's give of a copy of There's a Nightmare in My Closet, please send warm congrats to Danzel... Congrats and send me your mailing info to webe(at)soon(dot)com.

That's all for now, kids!

Yea! I love your blog. I used to run the children's section in a bookstore and there's nothing more satisfying than sending someone away with a really good picture book.

what a generous prize! thanks for the opportunity!

Becca said...

Oooo..waves hand wildly in air...pick me! pick me! We can always use some more books:)

BTW, have you ever checked out kids book author/illustrator Dahlov Ipcar? She was born in 1917, and created some fantastically amazing kids illustrations (lots of colors, patterns and hidden things to find, truly glorious) all while running a organic, self sufficient type farm in Maine with her husband and sons. Truly a pioneering woman, and she is still alive and painting:)Deep Sea Farm, Calico Jungle, One Horse Farm and Lobsterman are our family favs, but pretty much anything by her is pure eye candy.

Trop nulle en anglais, il me faut un traducteur pour comprendre que vous voulez offrir un livre... Je ne concoure pas, je suis trop loin ! Mais j'aime beaucoup parcourir votre site et toutes ces anciennes illustrations, ces couvertures, j'y pioche des idées pour le boulot. Merci
