Children's Book Week Giveaway Hop




This week I am participating in the Children's Book Week Giveaway Hop, hosted by I Am a Reader, Not a Writer, KitLit Frenzy, Classic Children's Books and Mymcbooks. Children's Book Week was established in 1919 and it is the longest-running literacy initiative in the country.

 Ask my kids and they will tell you how strongly I feel about reading. When my nine year old son came home this year and told me he had qualified for The Million Word Club at his school I couldn't have been happier or more proud. Reading played such an important part in my childhood and I am a firm believer in encouraging kids and young adults to read, read, read! I'm thrilled to be able to show my support in this way:)

As part of the Children's Book Week Hop 
I'm giving away a copy of:
Above by Leah Bobet!
