Made to Play - giveaway

The winner is Sue!
** ** ** **
Hello out there! Happy Friday! My girls and I are going to watch "Anne of Green Gables" tonight and I have been excited about it all week but also kind of nervous. Will they love it as much as I did?! Will they cry when Matthew gives Anne her puffed sleeves? The suspense is killing me.

Anyhow, onto the business at hand: I have a fantastic giveaway - Roost Books sent me a copy of Joel Henriques' Made to Play. It is so great! This book is full of genius ideas for simple projects that kids love playing with. For instance, I spent a very exciting hour today with 3 cute and extremely irrational four year olds making animal finger puppets.


See? So much fun.

So leave a comment and I'll do the random number thing and post the winner next Wednesday. Have a great weekend!

Woot! I probably just jinxed myself being first, but I would love to try out a copy.

p.s. thanks to you, Lynne, I adore Jane Eyre. I listened to the audiobook as I was packing up our house, read the book after we moved, and just finally saw the 2011 movie (thank you redbox). I don't know why it has struck such a chord with me.

Thank You, Thank You ! I received the book this week and had a chance yesterday to go through it. It's wonderful! Full of all the sorts of projects I will really love to make with children. Right now I'm working as a substitute teacher for elementary and middle school students... they will all really have fun with so many of the cool projects in the book. Everyone, run to your library or book store and get this book! Thanks again! Sue
