Happy Haul-idays


Talk about a FABULOUS giveaway! Chronicle Books is having a huge (and I mean HUGE) giveaway to celebrate the holiday season.

Chronicle Books is giving away $500 worth of books to one blogger who posts a list of books that he/she wants to haul in. And, they are giving away that same set of books (that’s right, $500 worth of books) to one person who comments on the winning blog. Winners will be announced on December 13th. To sweeten the deal, a charity of my choice (if I win) will also receive $500 in books. Of course, I’m choosing my school library – Academy Endeavour Elementary.

Want a chance to win? Just comment on this post. Good luck!

    Reading is everything, especially in an elementary school. New books by great authors is a way to engage kids in reading. An exemplary teacher – librarian who engages kids by encouraging them to read about thier passion and is a 21st century learning guru like Beverly “the Booklady” Archer is what’s best for kids. Good Luck Beverly! Haul those books in for Academy Endeavor.

    I love hanukkah books…it’s a holiday that kids are generally not exposed to much at our school. I am planningtot read a few books on the subject and talk about hanukkah tradtitions.

    Children fall in love with reading when they fall in love with a special book or two. I am fortunate to know some of those very gifted people who are able to connect a ready child to the right book and make that love happen. Beverly “The Book Lady” Archer has a passion for doing that, and has found a way to help others do it too. Can’t imagine a better person to win these books and share the love of reading!

      Chronicle Books has a rather eclectic selection. They had some interesting titles. I actually want the Star Wars cookbook for my students. Star Wars and cookbooks are both very popular genres. To combine the two is just awesome.

    Well, if you didn’t have my interest with “Milk and Cookies”, you got it with Moleskines. Love them.

    So, good luck to both of us on this thing.

    I would LOVE to see more books on our school shelf. My 2nd graders have just completed their own scary stories, so I would like to read the book scary stories to them!! Books never get old, boring, and are never ending in topics, ideas, and creative themes…this list fits them all. Good luck to an amazing and dedicated librarian!
