I LOVED reading all your responses about who would be a better friend and why! You guys crack me up. I’d love to have enough to give to everyone, but Random.org had to choose just two winners.
And the winners are:
#25 – Mo! Congratulations and enjoy Diary of a Worm!
#14 – Karina! Congratulations and enjoy Diary of a Spider!
I have TWO great children’s books to giveaway! Both are from the author of Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type, Doreen Cronin. Both are hilarious and have wonderful illustrations.
Diary of a Worm and
Both are listed as appropriate for ages 4-8, and I would agree. Although Jenna loves the illustrations, the content and text are still a little over her head. I would guess that some of the humor would even be a little advanced for many kids in the younger age range, but it opens the door for wonderful conversations.
Both books contain some great factual information about the critters they represent, as well as a clever, moral at the end. Here’s an excerpt from Diary of a Worm:
“May 28: Last night I went to the school dance. You put your head in. You put your head out. You do the hokey pokey and you turn yourself about…… That’s all we could do.”
“June 15: My older sister thinks she’s so pretty. I told her that no matter how much time she spends looking in the mirror, her face will always look just like her rear end. Spider thought that was really funny. Mom did not.”
“April 13: We had a vacuum drill today. I stopped what I was doing. Forgot where I was going. And ran screaming from the room. We’re having another drill tomorrow.“
