I feel the Christmas rush looming out there in the world, but over here we are slowing down for summer and the afternoons are getting longer and warm enough to lounge around reading great books… And so we have another fabulous Priddy Book to GiveAway…
A large board book packed with Fairy Tales:
My kids love Fairy Tales and can listen to them again and again, they like the familiarity, the like the “gasp” in the story and they like knowing the ending!!! Who wouldn’t want to know the ending to Hansel and Gretal or Little Red Riding Hood? So when this book arrived it didn’t actually land in our house… the package arrived and it flew straight into welcoming arms!!! Very quickly there was a chief storyteller…
But many others were able to catch a few sneak peaks… Hood #8 loved the textured pages… he just couldn’t get enough of them!!!
Others had to wait until after bedtime…
And another feature of this book that my kids just didn’t notice at first, was that it comes with a read-along CD… retelling all the stories. They were hooked… listening and reading and listening and reading and repeat!!! As a mom I can say that the CD was quite pleasant and I was happy to have it playing in the background. So often story CDs you listen to once and hope they vanish into a burning fire!!! Well not this one, no hidden hideous background music… Just the story read clearly with a few edifying sounds in the background… a mooing cow and twittering birds!!!
Here’s a list of the tales:
- The Gingerbread Man
- The Three Little Pigs
- The Princess and the Pea
- Little Red Riding Hood
- The Ugly Duckling
- Goldilocks and the Three Bears
- Hansel and Gretal
- Jack and the Beanstalk
The GiveAway works in the usual way, comment and tell us your favorite fairy tale, before the end of this coming Sunday, 4 December 2011, and we will draw and publish the winner next week! – I won’t respond to your comments as I do on our other posts because I don’t want to be included in our own giveaway.
Our GiveAways are open to everyone: If you have won a GiveAway before never fear – enter away. If you live on the far side of the world – enter away. Postage takes forever from here but eventually it should get to you! Good luck and get commenting!!!
I received these books from Priddy Books in exchange for a review, they did not ask, or pay me to say such lovely things about their products – I said them because their books, and particularly this one is fantastic!!!
