Birthday Giveaway and Linky Party

My birthday is coming up and ever since I started blogging this summer I have wanted to do a giveaway and a linky party. I just never thought that I would do it all in one swing. But here goes. To celebrate my upcoming birthday (next week), I am having a giveaway which will benefit FOUR winners! The winner list has grown of course from my original TWO but I thought that I might as well spread my love of reading around. The winners will be chosen randomly and the first number chosen will get the first prize and so on. Thank you to all my followers for sharing in my birthday bash!:)
#1 A copy of Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown (this of course is the original storybook, nowadays it's a chapter book too) AND a $10 gift card to Target
paperback



#2 A $10 gift card to Amazon.com and a copy of Animal Strike at the Zoo, It's True! by Karma Wilson 


Winners: #3 & #4 A copy of Animal Strike at the Zoo, It's True! by Karma Wilson


As you can see I love Animal Strike at the Zoo, It's True. And if you have ever read it you know how much fun it is. Last year I bought my whole class (my first class) this book for them to have. Many of my students do not have books of their own at home and I wanted them to continue their love of reading over the summer.

And for those doing a postcard exchange this year, reading the story of Flat Stanley leads to a similar project. When I taught preschool we did a Flat Stanley project and the people just sent back postcards or pictures of places that Stanley had traveled and made sure to send him on the next person. It was a neat project because even at that age, they got to see that there is a world outside of  their own area. 

Make sure to leave a comment for each entry that way they will be counted. Here is how you can win these prizes for bloggers and non-bloggers alike:

Bonus (for everyone)-- TWO entries, make sure to leave 2 comments

  Giveaway will end Tuesday August 23rd (a day before my birthday) at 10pm EST and winners will have 24 hours to contact me with their mailing address so you can get your prizes. Remember leave ONE comment for each entry. GOOD LUCK!
