The Got Books? Event has come to an end and what a great event it was! Thanks so much to everyone who stopped by, left comments, and signed up for my picture book give away. Not only did I gain over 30 new followers but I found some great kid's lit bloggers as well.
Congratulations to the following readers who each won a hardcover picture book:
Mary Elizabeth at A Novel Idea won a copy of Library Lion by Michelle Knudsen (Kevin Hawkes, illustrator). Her favorite picture book was Friday Night is Papa Night by Ruth A. Sonneborn.
Jennifer at Extreme Reader Book Reviews won a copy of Bob and Otto by Robert O. Bruel and Nick Bruel. Like me, Jennifer couldn't choose just one favorite. Some of her favorites include Where the Wild Things Are, Moon Bear, and Little Rabbit's Loose Tooth.
Emily, who is a third/fourth grade looping teacher, won a copy of The Eraserheads by Kate Banks. Emily's favorite picture book as a child was Goldilocks and the Three Bears. She remembers her parents reading it to her every night and reveals that she secretly believed she was Goldilocks!
Some of the other favorites readers mentioned included Harold and the Purple Crayon , Corduroy, The Giving Tree, Danny and the Dinosaur, The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry and the Big Hungry Bear ,The Monster at the End of This Book, Alexander and the Horrible, Terrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, and The Little Engine That Could.
Again congratulations to all three winners! I plan to do another book give-away right before the start of school, for me the first week of September. And thank you to everyone...both those who have already been following and everyone who found me through the Got Books? Event for reading The Book Maven's Haven!
