Children’s Book Week Giveaway Hop

Children's Book WeekDid you know that we’re heading into Children’s Book Week?  And did you further know about a cool event happening in the book blogging community?

Mother Daughter Book Reviews  and Youth Literature Reviews are joining forces to provide you with the opportunity to take part in the Children’s Book Week Giveaway Hop 2014, featuring links to giveaways for fabulous children/teen’s books, gift cards, cash, or other prizes.

Since I love children’s and YA books, how could I resist joining in?  I heard about the event from Katy (blogging at A Library Mama) and headed over to sign up–me, and almost a hundred other bloggers!

Wanderers 8 - Small CopyThat means there are lots of prizes going…including a signed paperback copy of my novel, The Wanderers!

I trust regular readers have heard the story already 😉 but for visitors coming over from the Hop (welcome!) here’s a little about the book:

The Wanderers is a Young Adult novel set in a world inspired by fairy tales–but with a bit of a twist! You might recognize the landscape, and you may think you know the rules, but you’ve strayed beyond the tales. Come join a wandering adventurer, a talking cat and a witch’s daughter as they fight monsters, pursue quests, and learn that sometimes, rules are no help at all.

You can learn more hereTo enter the giveaway, leave a comment below with your favorite children’s book.  The giveaway runs through May 18th, after which I’ll draw a name from a hat, and announce the winner.

Don’t miss the other great prizes available as part of the Hop!  Click here to view the complete list of participating bloggers and authors. (Powered by Linky Tools)

To keep this giveaway open across countries, while not incurring prohibitive shipping costs, I’m offering what I did for a past giveaway: if you are in the U.S., I will directly mail you a signed copy.  If you are in another country, I will gift you the paperback through Amazon, and mail you a signature to paste into the book.

Giveaway is NOW CLOSED – thanks for reading!

    My favorite children’s books are Misty of Chincoteague and the Harry Potter series.

      1. When you mentioned that, Cheryl, it brought to mind one of my favorites: THE NAPPING HOUSE. Not only is it a great, entertaining little story, but the illustrations are absolutely PHENOMENAL! If you paid attention to the way GOODNIGHT MOON had the light to dark, you probably noticed it in THE NAPPING HOUSE, BUT—if you didn’t (and for anyone who may read this comment), you’ll notice how it begins with the rain, the colors are subdued in hues of blue and the perspective is almost straight on level. With each page turn, the colors slowly intensify and the perspective slightly lifts until you’re nearly directly overhead when the flea bites the mouse. Then as the sun and everyone in the room begins to wake up, the perspective descends back to “level” and the colors become extremely vivid and joyful—totally “awake”! I can’t say enough about it 😀

    Great giveaway – thanks for joining us in the Giveaway Hop. Pinning and tweeting…

      1. I read CHARLOTTE’S WEB when I was a kid and remember loving it, but do NOT remember details and want to read it as an adult and a writer. I have it here waiting in a very long queue of TBRs!

  3. Cheryl, there is absolutely NO way to pick just ONE! BUT…since I’m FORCED due to my greediness for giveaways 😉 I will simply mention, for MG/YA, the ENTIRE Harry Potter series, and for kids, since I read it as a child and loved reading it to my son, I’ll pick GREEN EGGS & HAM or pretty much anything by Dr. Seuss 🙂

    My favorite childrens book which I recently read is the original Wizard of Oz was very interesting, and different than the movie, I enjoyed it.

    1. I LOVED that movie as a kid, which actually made it a little hard to read the book…but I got over that, have read the whole series more than once, and love Baum’s whimsy!

    1. Great to meet you too! I’m trying to remember if I’ve read Misty of Chincoteague…maybe, but it’s running together with some other horse books, I’m afraid…oh well, this hop is giving me all kinds of ideas for books I should read/reread!

    1. Peter Pan is one of my favorite classics too–have you read The Little White Bird? It has a story-within-a-story that’s a prequel to Peter Pan! And it’s a really charming book.

  5. Hi Cheryl, thanks for stopping by CarryUsOff Books. It’s good meeting new writer-bloggers! My favourite children’s book (gosh, how do I pick out of a sea of them?) is … Miss Rumphius by Barbara Cooney. It’s an excellent picture book.

  6. Jemima Pett

    I think I’ll have to stick to the Wind in the Willows, since being a pony book nut makes the list far too long to choose from, otherwise!

  7. My favourite childhood novel is The Hobbit by Tolkien I have very fond memories of being tucked into bed and being read the next chapter by my father. Come to think of it though The Hobbit is still my favourite novel just I have to read it myself now 🙂

      1. J.R.Barker

        I don’t think I’ve read any of her books, perhaps I should… nope *slap* I have a reading list to stick to!
