Jane Yolen Picture Book Giveaways

A fat guy with a beard is here giving away books, but it's not Santa! I had such a terrific response to the Jane Yolen posting yesterday that I thought I'd give away some of her books, kindly provided by Raab Associates.

Three teachers asked about a giveaway for The Seeing Stick, and another emailed to say that she used it on a regular basis, although she had never seen this reprint with its rich new illustrations. So we've got one copy of The Seeing Stick up for grabs.

From Jane Yolen's popular dinosaur series, which includes titles such as How Do Dinosaurs Play With Their Friends?, How Do Dinosaurs Eat Their Food?, and How Do Dinosaurs Get Well Soon?, you can enter to win a copy of How Do Dinosaurs Say I Love You?. Like the others in this series, How Do Dinosaurs Say I Love You? is beautifully illustrated by Mark Teague, perhaps best known for his own LaRue books including Dear Mrs. La Rue: Letters From Obedience School.

The third giveaway is Jane Yolen's Pumpkin Baby, one which I hadn't seen before, but that I'm sure kids in the younger grades will love.


By the way, a big congrats to the winners of Pamela S. Turner's The Frog Scientist and Prowling the Seas: Exploring the Hidden World of Ocean Predators. Kate from Massachusetts says, "I've been looking forward to seeing some science books on your blog, and can't believe I've won!" Roberta said, "Thanks so much for getting the word out... I have heard too much about how children will all be using the Internet and will no longer need nonfiction books." By the way, be sure to check out Roberta's awesome Growing with Science blog. Lots of terrific teaching ideas there!

Not sure how to email you (I can't locate an email address), but I'd like to be entered in the Yolen Drawing, please!
