Chicken, Pig, Cow want to go to your house (giveaway)

I’ve been very fortunate to have reviewed a number of great books for kids as part of my weekly Write a Review Wednesday post. But today isn’t about me, it’s about you or rather what I can give to you.

Recently I wrote a review on Ruth Ohi‘s wonderful picture book Chicken, Pig, Cow as well as her follow-up book Chicken, Pig, Cow On The Move, equally as wonderful. If you ever get a chance to hear Ruth Ohi read, you should. My oldest daughter and I had a chance to meet her recently at the Word on the Street festival. She is so energetic and enthusiastic and really talks to and involves her young readers in her presentation. It was so much fun (and I learned a thing or two as well).

So how is this post about you? In addition to the copies of both Ruth Ohi’s books for my reviews, my friend Joanna from Annick Press sent along two additional copies. That’s right, I have an additional copy of Chicken, Pig, Cow and Chicken, Pig, Cow On The Move. I know, pretty awesome!

So I’m offering both of these books together to you my blog readers, book lovers. And since my birthday is today, I’m feeling really generous and I will send these to anyone in Canada or the United States. If you would love to add both of these books to your personal library, leave a comment below telling me one of your favourite kids books (I’m always looking for new book suggestions). Don’t forget to leave your email address so I have a way of contacting you. I will accept entries until Monday, October 12, 2009 (midnight EST) at which time I will randomly pick a name. Good Luck!

Update: We have a winner. has picked a winner and they have been notified. Thanks for your interest.

  1. Oh wow… from your review, I really love the look of the books. I’d love to add them to Maia’s library!

    Right now one of our favourites is the ultra-cute “Where Are You From, Little Goose?” … because it turns out he’s from CANADA! And then at the end of the book we always tickle Maia and sing her a Canada goose song 😉

    The favorite book in our house is Are you My Mother? by Dr. Seuss — obviously not a new release but it gets big laughs (I give all the animals different accents when I’m reading it, so it makes the kiddies howl!). We also love the Scaredy Squirrel series – I personally love how funny and creative they are. Thanks for this giveaway – we are a book-loving family!

    My daughter loves Dear Big, Mean, Ugly Monster – about a boy who writes letters to the monster under his bed. He discovers the monster isn’t so mean, just misunderstood. It’s a bit scary at first but quickly is funny and teaches about acceptance of others. She has it memorized even though she can’t read yet.
