One of the blogs I check out regularly is Bloggy Giveaways. Sometimes I enter the giveaways, but more often than not I just look because I'm fascinated with mom owned small businesses, and that's the type of company she usually promotes. If you haven't ever checked out this blog you should definitely take a look!
This week Bloggy Giveaways is hosting their Quarterly Giveaway Carnival. I have perused the entries in quarters past and found some great new blogs to read.... like I need to be reading more blogs!?! But this time I've decided to host a give away of my own.
Trying to decide what to give away was quite tough because I wanted whatever I did offer to be something that says a little bit about our blog. I am a nut when it comes to reading and studying up on kids. Even though I try to do most of my parenting based on my own intuition, I am interested to hear what the "experts" have to say about things. Some of my recent favorite reads in this department are: Sacred Parenting by Gary Thomas, Love and Logic Magic for Early Childhood by Jim and Charles Fay, The Read-Aloud Handbook by Jim Trelease, The Happiest Toddler on the Block by Harvey Karp, and the one I mentioned in yesterday's post How to Get Your Kid to Eat... But Not Too Much by Ellyn Satter.
After I decided to give away a book, I realized that I have an extra copy of The Happiest Toddler on the Block by Harvey Karp here already. Now, I'll admit that some of the tactics in this book I found to be a little cooky, but there were also some great tips and tricks I've found for dealing with my house full of toddlers. So, the perfect giveaway from our house with one happy preschooler and 3 of the happiest toddlers you'd ever hope to meet was decided upon!
To enter your name in the drawing for this book, simply leave a comment on this post (being sure to include your email address or another easy way for me to reach you) letting me know which parenting books you enjoy. I'll randomly draw a winner Friday night and announce that winner here Saturday morning. (U.S. & Canada addresses only, please.) And be sure to visit Bloggy Giveaways to check out the giveaway carnival -- there's a whole bunch of giveaways going on throughout the blogosphere this week, and who knows, you might find a new favorite blog or two?!?
