Giveaway--Two Historical Picture Books

Photobucket

After searching through my curriculum cupboard for something to giveaway in the Big Curriculum Clean-Out, I remembered that I had these two fabulous books to pass along. Both of these are historical picture books that go along with Winter Promise's Hideaways in History curriculum. These are great read-aloud companion books to any history program (we use them with Story of the World), and are packed with interesting information and illustrations to enjoy with your child. By mistake, the company ended up sending me two copies of each of these, and when I asked about returning them, they said to just keep them (thanks, Winter Promise!). So, both of these copies are brand new, and since I don't have use for two copies of the same book, I am passing them along to you!


There will be two winners for this giveaway. When you enter, you are entering for either book, not one book specifically, and not both books. This giveaway will run from April 12th to April 24th. I will randomly choose two winners and will contact you within a few days of the giveaway ending. If I don't receive contact from you within 3 days of me contacting you, then I will choose a new winner. Sorry, this giveaway is open to US only.

You can get a total of two entries:

1) Required entry--leave a comment on this post telling me one interesting fact about yourself, your family, or your homeschool (don't stress; it's just for fun!).

2) Optional entry--follow or subscribe to my blog, then leave a separate comment and tell me that you are following/subscribing. You can only get ONE additional entry for this, even if you subscribe and follow. If you already subscribe or follow, just leave a separate comment and say so--that counts for your second entry.

Be sure to leave your contact information in your comment, otherwise you will not qualify to win. And, don't forget to check out all the other great giveaways going on at Our Homeschool Creations.

I think it's interesting that I am a public school teacher who does not want my kids to go to public school - I want to homeschool my kids (we'll be starting homeschooling this year).
