National Library Week PLUS a Giveaway

I woke up this morning and realized it was the first day of:


I’ve been a fan of libraries since I was a little girl. I couldn’t get enough of books…and going to the library was like being set loose in a candy story.

To help celebrate, why not visit the library with your children…and make it a habit to go often. Does your child have a library card yet? Find out how old your child has to be…if he doesn’t have one yet and is old enough, help celebrate National Library Week by signing him up. A CHILD’S LIBRARY CARD CAN BE A PASSPORT TO LEARNING ABOUT THE WORLD. And libraries are one of the last free resources in our communities…they provide so much more than books…check out the programs they have available for children and adults of all ages.

My quote 1

In honor of National Library Week, I’m again donating THREE copies of Show Me How! Build Your Child’s Self-Esteem Through Reading, Crafting and Cooking. Wouldn’t it be awesome to present a copy of this valuable parent/teacher resource to your children’s librarian? Just subscribe to my mailing list. Three names will be chosen by at the end of April. Already subscribed? No worries…your name is already entered. And if your library is one of those which doesn’t accept book donations, please pass the book on to a local women’s shelter or childcare facilitator.


Many libraries are very limited in what new materials they can buy for their collections because of reduced revenues. Help your library receive a resource that will be used by parents and teachers for their kids. Just click on this link and subscribe to my mailing list.

Do you tweet on Twitter? Are you a fan of Facebook? Have you pinned anything on Pinterest yet? Please help me spread the word about the Show-Me-How Library Week Giveaway by tweeting, posting and/or pinning.

And while I have your attention (hopefully I do), I want to mention that the #50PreciousWordforKids International Writing Challenge is just around the corner. Many teachers and homeschooling parents are looking for activities to help celebrate Children’s Book Week which runs April 30 to May 6. And encouraging kids to write their very own story in only 50 words is a super cool way! Stay tuned for more information later this month or email me for details: I know that teachers need time to plan activities like this around their already overloaded curriculum requirements, so please reach out to any teachers you know. Last year we had one prize per grade level of an author Skype visit…if you would like to participate by Skyping with a winning class or school, please let me know.

You are a gift to children, parents, literacy and our kidlit community.


  2. This is an excellent way to celebrate/kick off National Library Week! I’m headed to my library for a concert today to kick off our local celebrations. I’d love to present my library with a copy.
