Although It's My Birthday... I Have a Present for Y'all!

Well, I'd originally planned on posting this back in the BEGINNING of January... somehow, I never got around to it! So... today seems appropriate! I'll share my love of children's literature with you as part of my birthday present to myself! Each month here at Katie's Literature Lounge, I'll be hosting at least one giveaway. This month there is just one title I'm giving away...

Bubble Trouble, by Margaret Mahy

Gonna make these giveaway requirements interesting each month to encourage participation (this will also be an activity that you can try with your kids at the dinner table to encourage family discussion)!

To Enter:
  • You must include your e-mail address.
  • Must leave a comment on this post by 11:59 pm on Sunday, January 31.
  • A great deal of this book contains the literary element of alliteration. Use your imagination to come up with a title for a children's book. The trick is, the title must use alliteration and be 5 words long!
FYI: For those of you not familiar with alliteration, it's a way of writing in which each word begins with the same consonant sound.

I'll give you an example to get you started: Katie's Kangaroo Kissed Kristen's Kitten

Winner will be drawn on Monday, February 1st and will be notified via e-mail!

Happy Birthday!

We already have this one, and it quickly became one of my favorite read-alouds (after a good cup of coffee of course!), so we won't enter - but we will highly recommend!

I LOVE Bubble Trouble... and would love to have a copy. I use it all the time in storytimes at the library and I read it to my son.

Hmmm... title of a book? How about:
See Slow Snakes Slither Sideways
