HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY, TEACHERS AND LIBRARIANS! <3 <3 <3
It’s no secret to those of you who know me that I just adore and respect teachers and librarians who are out there every day with kids–reaching out to them with just the right book or just the right conversation and changing lives. As is said often in children’s literature circles, books offer both mirrors and windows to readers. We often discover things about ourselves and/or who we want to be through reading (mirrors). We also learn about the world–other cultures, ways of life, etc (windows). For some, a book offers a friend and the ability to revisit that friend (reread passages) in a stress-free way. Yes, we write the books. but YOU put those books into the hands of kids every day.
So…to express this appreciation and love for ALL of you heroes/teachers/librarians out there, I have banded together with some author friends to offer one GIANT giveaway for one lucky winner. The winner of this giveaway will receive a signed copy of every single book below–mailed to you in separate packages. Most are new releases, so the winner will be ahead of the game reading-wise in 2015! You may click on each cover to see the author’s website.
***There is also a YA giveaway as well. CLICK HERE! #YAAuthorsLoveTeachers (I think the YA one is on twitter with #AuthorsLoveTeachers as well if you’d like to search :-) Here are the MG book choices: So a pretty cool line-up of signed middle grade novels, huh?
