I really enjoyed doing my Me Challenge Giveaway last month.  It was nice to be able to offer a surprise to a reader who took the time to validate my existence with a comment. Plus, I got the added bonus of reading about all the interesting places you have traveled.  (Who knew there was actually a World's Largest Frying Pan?! )

Since that was a lot of fun, I thought it was time for another giveaway!  Most of you know that Vivi is heading to her local public kindergarten at the end of the month.  Given my recent gripes about the supply list, it is clear that our schools need a lot of help.  That's why I have decided to give away:

Two $25 gift certificates to Donor's Choose.

Here are the rules:

To enter, please leave a comment telling me your favorite children's book and why you love it.

Because Donor's Choose is for US based schools, this giveaway is only open to residents of the United States.

The winners will be chosen at random on Monday, August 15.

Here's how Donor's Choose works: public school teachers from all over America post classroom project requests. Requests range from pencils for a poetry writing unit, to violins for a school recital, to microscope slides for a biology class.  You can browse project requests and give to the one that inspires you. Once a project reaches its funding goal, Donor's Choose delivers the materials to the school.

Good luck!


  1. Its a toss up between Mr.Dog (golden books) and the Lorax (Dr. Suess). Perhaps its my love for personified animals...

  2. Don't Talk To Strangers, I always was a skeptical child. The illustrations were fantastic and like Nicholas I have a soft spot for animals personified.

  3. Ferdinand...not sure if it needs an explanation other than ""I like it better here where I can just sit quietly and smell the flowers."
