It is giveaway Thursday including a brief book review, too of Miss Lady Bird’s Wildflowers, a colorful children’s book that commemorates the 100th birthday of Miss Lady Bird Johnson this December 22nd. So while the giveaway book may not reach you by the holidays, it is still worth taking a chance.
Now, first a few ground rules. You must have a US address to enter and win. So darn it all for any of my UK friends. The other contest rule: on our Facebook page today http://www.facebook.com/abilowz name your favorite wildflower and why. A selective group of judges shall pick the winner. That’s it; fairly simple and when the winner is announced tomorrow, a complimentary book will be shipped to your address from Blue Slip Media.
But back to the important stuff – what’s in the book. From an adult who loved reading since I was a child, what is most appealing is its colorful art work woven with history of Lady Bird Johnson’s life. All is certain to keep little eyes and minds attentive on learning about this influential first lady and the many reasons why wildflowers were so important to her. For teachers, there are activity books available as a free download on the author, Kathi Appelt's website and the illustrator, Joy Fisher Hein's site.
So don’t miss the Thursday giveaway. This book is age appropriate for the 2nd to 4th grader. And if you missed any chatter from the previous blogs about this book, the links are posted below.
Time to get involved in the Thursday giveaway – name your favorite wildflower and why! As Lady Bird Johnson said in 2002, “My heart found its home long ago in the beauty, mystery, order and disorder of the flowering earth. I wanted future generations to be able to savor what I had all my life.”
