Children's Book GIVEAWAY!

It's exciting to celebrate bloggers' successes. My dynamo friend Terra, aka Campbell Lawson, recently published not one, not two, but three children's books: Whereditgo, Rock n Friend, and Somebody.
Here they are:

the other side to the story


Terra's playfulness with words mixes with warmhearted messages that left me smiling. (My nephew's going to be thrilled with this Chanukah package.) The themes are relevant to all children: not being able to find something, feeling unimportant, and longing for a pet. Buster York adds colorful, detailed and fun illustrations.

In Rock n Friend, halfway through the book we read "There are two sides to every story." Flip the book over, and a new story begins from the second main character's perspective. This uniquely creative two-for-one will be given to the winner of my giveaway. I'm hoping and assuming you have at least one young child in your life. To win, you need not tweet, click a "thumbs-up" icon, alter your facebook status, vlog yourself doing back-flips in the snow, or even follow me (or Life by Chocolate). Just leave a comment below telling me who you'd give the book to.  I'll chose the winner at random. Terra/Campbell Lawson will send an autographed copy to the recipient. 

Terra wrote these books in her grand mothers' honor; Campbell and Lawson are their maiden names.

The three will be available on Amazon in January, 2012 and can be found now at www.campbelllawson.com
You can also visit Terra at www.sittingonanoak.com.

Good luck and have a playful week!

  6. At first I thought I have no idea who I would give the books to. And than I thought, I have friends with little kids. Than I thought, do any of them read to their kids. I think a couple do.
    That would be a great gift.
    I had a Sesame Street book that was two-sided and I just thought it was the coolest book. I've never seen another one like it.

  9. Terra, my pleasure. I didn't even mention all the yummy caramels. I didn't want to have to explain why they aren't in the picture.

    Thanks, all. I'll likely keep this going for another couple days.

    Be well. Be playful.
