Today's giveaway is for 2 children's picture books, and is sponsored by The Itty-Bitty Bookworm.
One of the books is "Fire! Fire!" said Mrs. McGuire by Bill Martin Jr. It is about a family of mice who think they see a fire through a keyhole. However, the "fire" actually turns out to be lit candles on a birthday cake. The rhyming text is fun for preschoolers and the mice in the book are lovable. This is a great book to spark a lesson or discussion on fire safety (October is Fire Safety Month).
The other book is The Busy Little Squirrel by Nancy Tafuri. This book is about a little squirrel who is on a mission to get ready for the fall. He is so busy that he cannot "nibble with the mice, hop with the frogs, or run with the dogs". There is one thing he can do, though. Read it to your little one to find out. This is a perfect book to read this time of the year because it is all about fall changes. The pictures show leaves changing, the wind blowing, and pumpkins and apples all around.
To enter please share one fun Fall idea that you do with your class or family.
The winner will be announced here on Monday, October 13. Good Luck!
