A friend of mine, Tammy, is a independent rep for Barefoot Books, a company based right down the road from me in Cambridge, MA. Their books are gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous, multicultural, and did I say gorgeous? (Incidentally, their retail store is also an utter delight, so if you live in greater Boston, get thee over there, post-haste.)
Tammy has generously offered to give one of my readers the book of his or her choice. All you need to do is click through here, take a look around, and leave a comment letting me know which book looks most appealing to you. You have until midnight on Monday, February 2, 2009 to let me know which book you'd like to win. Two important things to know:
- Clicking through on that link will give you 10% off any purchases you make through midnight on Monday;
- Barefoot is having a big Winter Sale until midnight on Monday, so that 10% will be on top of already reduced prices.
I don't do a lot of giveaways and promos on my site, but books in general are really wonderful and Barefoot books are especially wonderful. The company was founded by working moms, and they offer a better selection of multicultural stories than I've found anywhere else. They also have a good selection of titles in Spanish.
Go! Browse! Buy! And let me know what you'd like to win in the comments.
*Are my kids the only ones who consistently choose my least favorite books from our shelves? I swear, it's like they know which ones I detest and deliberately choose them any time we're reading. Like every night. And most mornings. And often throughout the day. I know that it's not all about me, but really, if I have to read Little Quack one more time, I might just go insane.
