Perfect Picture Book Friday: ODIN – DOG HERO OF THE FIRES Plus Giveaway

Happy Perfect Picture Book Friday, dear friends! And WOW…it’s been a busy week for me. As some of you know, I’m putting my house on the market…going through years of accumulation of this, that, and TONS OF PICTURE BOOKS! I called several local critique buddies and they’ve come to the rescue…helping me sort through stuff…and leaving with this, that, and definitely some picture books!

But my copy of ODIN: DOG HERO OF THE FIRES is going nowhere…except into a box with my other treasured picture books that I am taking with me. It only came out a few days ago, but take it from me – this one is going to win lots of awards. And if you leave a comment at the end, you will be entered into the giveaway of a copy of this wonderful book…thanks to author Emma Bland Smith who is one of my fellow Storm sisters!

Perfect Picture Book Friday: RESCUING THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE Plus Giveaway and More

It’s a good thing that Stephen Pleasonton had a better sense of timing than I do! Otherwise, we might not have the original Declaration of Independence to view when visiting Washington DC. The actual launch date for this book was April 14th…and I was supposed to announce that in a book birthday post…but since I missed the birthday, I decided to turn the Perfect Picture Book spotlight on this awesome picture book. And author Anna Crowley Redding not only is generously giving away a copy of the book to one lucky winner, but she is also stopping by to chat with us a bit. Make sure you scroll through the post so you don’t miss her!
