Back to School Giveaway

Elliott and I have spent the last 2 or 3 weeks finalizing our list of must reads for school this year.  We ended up coming up with 20 books that we will read for sure this year.  We read together for about 30-45 minutes every day, and I read to him for another 15-20 minutes during snack time.  He also reads to me most days of the week.  So 20 will almost certainly not be enough books to last all school year, but I think it's a good start.  Plus it gives us the opportunity to watch for more must reads as we learn about different things.

In honor of school starting, and preparing our own book lists, Elliott and I decided to do a book giveaway of our own!  All the books will be brand new scholastic books.  There will be two random winners, and each winner will get to pick the prize pack of their choice.

I was going to say Beverly Cleary or Sweet Valely High for me but I see others said that and I don't want to copy. ;) I liked Judy Blume books (Blubber was awesome) and Paula Danzig books.

My son likes 'If you give a mouse a cookie' and 'Cat in the Hat.'

Thanks for hosting. :)
