I picked up a copy of The Four Seasons of Brambly Hedge in excellent shape at the thrift store today. I already own this collection but I couldn’t let Wilfred and Primrose et al. go unappreciated at 79 cents! So I snatched it up. I do this frequently… rescue books that I already own just because they’re there. They either get saved for gifts or put into the Little Free Library out front.
Today, however, you’re in luck! I’m giving this copy to one of my
millionser… make that dozens of readers! All you have to do is comment with the name of your favorite Springtime picture book (yep, just ONE title please) and maybe a sentence or two why you love it.
I thought about offering more entries if you blog or Pinterest or Facebook or Twitter me… but I tend to grumble inwardly about having to do this on other blog giveaways and don’t intend to ‘buy’ your advertising love here. I have to keep reminding myself that I am a hobby blogger; I do this for my own interest and diversion, not to gather some kind of mommy-blogger fame. (Though my occasional $10-$20 Amazon gift certificates for affiliate clicks have been utterly delightful!) So one entry per person please.
However! For my own amusement and just to see if anyone is paying attention… if by some bizarre deviation of nature, there are at least 50 comments on this post, I’ll throw in a bonus giveaway to one of the entrants: Andrew Henry’s Meadow also in excellent condition, which happens to be one of my favorite books of all time!
So there you have it. Winners will be chosen by a cute, little, red-headed four year old who’ll pick names out of a jar. You have until May Day, noon PST. Go.
This was very scientific:
I would LOVE a copy of The Four Seasons of Brambly Hedge! My current favorite springtime book is And Then It's Spring. My three-year-old would probably choose Bear Wants More. Here in Kansas, Thunder Cake is a good one to revisit in the spring, too.
Our favorite springtime book is Jamberry, we've been loving it!
Too many favorites for me to choose just one, but I love Not Only for Ducks by Glenn Orlando Blough. Would love a copy of Andrew Henry's Meadow – that's new to me and I already own all of the Brambly Hedge books. 🙂
I find it so difficult to choose favorite books! I must say though that I really benefit from your doing so!! I gave my three year old The Root Children for Easter after reading your post and I love it. I love the gentle language and my daughter loved that the children have such colorful dresses on! She loves dresses.
I love poetry and songs for spring! I have joyful memories of reciting the swing and my shadow and rain by Robert Louis Stevenson and the poetry by A A Milne (at the zoo) and with my oldest three while playing at parks. And I have several spring songs from my Montessori teaching days that I love singing while being outside.
I do that, rescue books and either give to friends or into my growing 'grandchildren' boxes. Yup saving for grandchildren which will be a distant future, lol
I purchased Andrew Henry ' s Meadow when it was re released due to your recommendation and we love it! One of our favorite books. We like Make Way for Ducklings as a favorite spring read.
Yay! I'm happy I decided to check in today. I would love to win The Four Seasons of Brambly Hedge! One of our favorite springtime/Easter books is Miss Fannie's Hat. My kids ask to read it as soon as I pull it out for the season, and it makes me cry almost every time.
Right now we're loving Thornton Burgess's Book of Birds for Children. We just started our oldest on the Brambly Hedge books, and she loved them! This would be a very welcome addition to our family library.
we love Waiting Out the Storm by Joann Macken and since it is brand new to us this Easter have been enjoying Michael Hague's Family Easter Treasury. Love your book posts all the TIME! 🙂
Hello. I found your blog recently via SoulGardening. Wonderful. Congrats to Tiffany!
We love the couple of Brambly Hedge books we have and Andrew Henry's Meadow is quickly becoming a favorite.
Thank you for all of the recommendations.
