Children’s Book Set (of 2) to Give Away: 3 WINNERS!

Today is giveaway day I guess, because there’s also another giveaway going on right now.  Hooray! :)  Six Sisters’ Stuff is giving away a free copy of their brand new cookbook that was just released.  Oh yum!!!  

. . . . .


Since Steve and I were married 7.5 years ago, we have moved, oh, maybe 7-8 times.  We have lived on both sides of the country in apartments, town-homes, houses, basements, etc.  We have met some really great people along the way, have adopted new traditions, visited different landmarks, etc.  But our marriage all began in Rexburg, Idaho.  And some of our favorite memories and friends were made there. 


I was contacted by an old Idaho friend of mine, Kim, and she told me about this new little adventure she’s on……writing children’s books with her young daughter Ashley (great name!).  Ashley is in elementary school and loves to write stories.  And Kim, well she loves art.  So by mixing the two of them together……..they have created 2 Children’s books thus far.


And Kim and Ashley would like to give away the set of 2 books…… 3 DIFFERENT PEOPLE!

  • If Only I Knew How to Read

  •  If Only I Knew How to Tell Time





The books are great for young readers because they were written by a young reader herself.  Both titles are pertinent to young ones, taking the reader along a little adventure, giving them motivation to begin to Learn How to Read and/or Learn How to Tell Time.



The illustrations are vibrant and friendly and the text is nice and large.





What a great thing to be doing with your child…..becoming authors together. 




I’m sure it’s been quite the journey, Kim and Ashley, but HOORAY for you both! :)




Both titles are available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

If Only I Knew How to Read

If Only I Knew How to Tell Time

And like I mentioned above, Kim and Ashley would like to GIVE AWAY a set of their books to 3 DIFFERENT WINNERS!
