The First of Three Book Giveaways.
Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, 'and what is the use of a book, thought Alice, 'without pictures or conversations?'
Yes. What indeed!
So, for the first of my book giveaways this week I am starting with a book that brought life to words early on for me. It is a classic, as you may have already guessed, and I have managed to find it in a beautifully rereleased version as a chapter book for children 8-12 (though I must say, I could devour this book even now.) Yes, my first book to giveaway is Alice in Wonderland (chapter book edition) by Lewis Carrol. If you don't have this book in your bookshelves... well you should! Read for yourself or share with those special little people in your life. There is nothing nicer for little people than being lost down rabbit holes when snuggled up beside the big person you trust :)
For a chance to win a copy of the book: simply leave a comment in this comments section and tell me, "what book opened to world of words for you?"
I will chose one name from a hat randomly and announce the winner on Wednesday- when I giveaway the next book!
And let me say a massive thank you to those who have supported my blog and continue to visit. Your comments are always welcome on my in box :) More than once I have been uplifted by something one of my amazing followers said in the comments section and I appreciate your voices being heard. Writing can be lonely. Thanks to you guys it is a lot less so.
