Giving Away a Perfect Book to Add to Your Advent Reading Collection: "Make Magic! Do Good!"
Submitted by Pam on Mon, 11/26/2012 - 22:22
My very own copy of the newest book by Dallas Clayton -"Make Magic! Do Good!"- just arrived from the publisher, Candlewick Press. And from the moment I flipped open the title page, I have been enchanted.
So enchanted, in fact, that although when I accepted the offer of a review copy, my intention was to hold a giveaway as part of the review; now that I have the book in my hands, that plan has changed! Oh I am giving away a copy to the lucky winner to add to their family collection of advent books - BUT - the winner can not have my copy!!! I will purchase another copy. I simply can not let this one go!!
Dallas Clayton may be considered a children's book writer, but I truly believe he speaks to every single one of us no matter what age or what stage of life we might currently be inhabiting.
And if you don't believe me - I am sharing two of my most favorite poems included in "Make Magic! Do Good!" so you will clearly see what I mean!!!
In my opinion, Dallas Clayton is nothing short of brilliant! And a man with a heart bigger than the whole wide world.
If his intention is truly to only speak to the hearts and minds of children, I would be very surprised because this collection of poems speaks to all humanity. I hope it is translated into every language.
"Make Magic! Do Good!" has arrived at just the right time - the beginning of the season to be thankful and to reach out to our friends, neighbors and people new to us with an open and loving heart.
Order a copy! And when it arrives, find a quiet corner and read it all by yourself. And then share it!
If you would like to enter the giveaway for a copy of "Make Magic! Do Good!", leave a comment on this post. I would love it if you would share one of your favorite ways to "Make Magic" or " Do Good".
The giveaway will close at midnight PST on November 30th and the winner will be announced on December 1st. Giveaway is open to readers living in the continental USA and Canada.
And may I add before I sign off for today, I have missed you and I am very happy to be back!!!
