Giveaway: Two Classic Children's Books


Does your child ever get tired of the wonderful words and pictures in Goodnight Moon? This week's giveaway includes a lesser-known book by classic children's author Margaret Wise Brown. The Seven Little Postmen is full of sweet pictures and a simple rhyming story. Your children are sure to love it!

Some of you like me may remember Frog and Toad are Friends as one of the first books you read by yourself as a young child. It is a Caldecott Honor Book, and is just the right mix of whimsy and simplicity.

To be entered into the giveaway, just leave a comment below and include your email address so that I will be able to contact you if you win. (feel free to write the email address out in words if you like) If you would like a second entry, you may blog about this giveaway and leave a second comment with the link.

On Monday, November 3rd the winner will be chosen through random.org, and I will post the name late that night.

FROM MRS. LINDA......   Hello My Beloved One In Christ. I greet you with the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, It is true that this letter may come to you as a surprise. Nevertheless, I humbly ask you to give me your attention and hear me well. My name is Mrs.   Linda Uwen from Australia. I am married To Dr. Edward Uwen who worked with our Embassy here in  Ghana  for a period of 8 years before he died .
 We were married for 15 years without a child before he died after a brief illness. Since his death I decided not to remarry due to my religious belief . When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of US$6.5m (Six Million Five Hundred Thousand United State American dollars ) with a Bank here in Ghana. presently this money is still in the custody of the Bank here in Ghana.recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next Four months due to cancer illness.    Having known my condition I decided to donate this money to churches, organization or good person that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein. I want you to use this money for churches, Charity organization, orphanages, widows and other people that are in need. l took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money . Moreover, my husband relatives are not close to me since I develop a Cancer problem and it had been their wish to see me dead in order to inherit his wealth since we have no Child. These people are not worthy of this inheritance. This is why I am taking this decision.   I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my ill-health. As soon as I receive your reply I will give you the contact of the Bank here  in Ghana where this money is deposited. I will also issue a letter of authorization to the bank that will prove you the present beneficiary of this money. I also want you to always put me in prayer.  Any delay in your reply may give me room to look for another good person for this same purpose.  Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein.  Contact me lindauwen21@hotmail.com Hoping to receive your response soonest.   Thanks and Remain blessed .Yours sister in the Lord, Mrs. Linda uwen
