Today I Ordered Books.

I love books.  I'm addicted to books.  For years I wanted to be a children's librarian.  I even volunteer helped the local children's librarian in my early teens.  It was a blast!  All during my growing up I would check out piles of kids books and read to my siblings.  When I became a teacher, I would do the same for my students.  Now I do the same for my kiddos and I have to really limit myself because I don't want to just GO to the library, I want to GIVE my kids a library!  So every once in a while I'll order a book or two.  Today I did just that.  I got myself some crafting books and the kids some books and I got a book for today's giveaway!  :)  Giveaway #3 of my Unnecessary Necessities or Things That I Love That I Want to Share With You.

(sorry about the blurry pic)

We have this book and enjoy it.  Instead of coming up with the words to describe it, I'm borrowing the review from Children's Book of the Month Club: "A new generation of sleepyheads will love sailing away to dreamland in a wooden shoe with Wynken, Blynken, and Nod with this whimsical picture book that breathes new life into the classic bedtime rhyme! It’s illustrator Giselle Potter’s quirky folk-art style paintings that are sure to make poet Eugene W. Field’s most famous lullaby (originally called “Dutch Lullaby”) such a joy to share with your little one. Your child’s imagination will soar as the tale of three wee fishermen on a journey through the stars unfolds, because each illustration—from the boys casting their nets to catch the herring that light up the night sky to the laughing old moon—is more magical and wonderful than the next."

If you'd like to win this new book of Wynken, Blynken, and Nod, just

1. be a follower
2. have a blog
3. want the book for a child, friend, niece, nephew, grandkid or yourself
4. leave a comment

That's it!  Giveaway ends Tuesday night (because I'm getting this up so late).  Open internationally.  Hope you each have a wonderful weekend!
