Alphabet Glue Giveaway - Shivaya Naturals

Alphabet Glue Giveaway

December 16, 2011

Every once in a while something comes along that just makes me smile from ear to ear at it’s goodness. This is how I felt the first time I saw Annie Riechmann’s Alphabet Glue. Annie has a love of books and storytelling, and clearly that love has been nurtured and passed down to her children. Alphabet Glue is now on it’s fourth edition, and Annie has been generous enough to offer five copies of the entire collection here.

The year of activities include such amazing projects as the Paper Penguin Pencil Toppers, Salt Sparkle Snowflakes, Fabric Covered Stitch Books, A Detectives Kit, and my personal favorite, Story Lanterns.

To win a copy of Alphabet Glue, simply leave a comment here telling us what your favorite childhood book is, and we will draw five winners on Monday, just in time to have this amazing collection bound and wrapped for the holidays (that is what I did for my kids).

Congratulations to Holly, Erin, Michelle, Adela and Heather L. Your copy of Alphabet Glue will be emailed to you shortly! Happy Reading.

My favorite young children's book is The Little Fur Family by Margaret Wise Brown . It is such a cozy comforting book. I have a tiny little fur covered copy for my own children now who love it as well.

Impossible to pick one book, so I'll share that the ones I read the most as a child were Laura Ingall Wilder's book. My kids are not that into them, but maybe someday . . .

My favorite of all time is the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. I love reading it this time of year to my kids (we do each December) because of Father Christmas and the imagery of Aslan being Christ. His great love for us. I cry each time. another favorite – and I have read it and cried already, The Best Christmas Pageant Ever.

What a lovely giveaway! Thanks for the chance. My favorite children's book is the Railway Children by E. Nesbit. I read it again recently as an adult, while our family was spending time at a rural farm and it was so full of vivid evocations of children's lives in the out of doors. I loved it!

Bethany December 17, 2011 at 2:23 am

My favorite book series growing up was "The Boxcar Children". I remember my 3rd grade teacher introducing me to the series. Currently, I am enjoying "The Mitten", "The Tomten", and "Christmas in Noisy Village" with my almost 4 year old.

"Where the Wild Things Are" <3

I always loved the Where's Spot books. They are so simple… one of the first books I could read!!!

Holly Schilling December 17, 2011 at 7:09 am

My favorite book was "The Other Side of The Door" I don't know who's it by but it was about a girl who was tongue-tied so she didn't talk. Since she didn't talk she wasn't allowed to go to school. She really wanted to go to school, but even with speech therapy she couldn't speak well enough. Then a Dr saw what was causing her speech problem, fixed it and she was finally able to get to the other side of the door of the school.

Thanks

Thank you for this offer! How exiting! As a small child I loved a number of books by Gyo Fujikawa, that my mother has now miraculously preserved for my 3 kiddos!

Hard to have a favorite. My personal fav is the little house series. I was very disappointed when I moved out west from the east and found out it wasn't like the book! LOL. My kids fav at the moment is "Do you want to play hide and seek with Grover?" another oldy from my childhood in the early 80s. Cannot wait til they are old enough to give them my little house series.

Reply

Amy December 18, 2011 at 4:50 pm

My favourites were the Narnia series and if i can have two "The Secret Garden" too!

Reply

Stacey December 18, 2011 at 6:34 pm

Without a doubt my favorite books as a child was the Melendy Quartet by Elizabeth Enright. Though I had a weakness for Trixie Beldens during the summers. Now my son loves Nate the Great, and Henry and Mudge.

i still love "This Star Shall Abide." It's a sci fi book and unbeknown to me, i was a geek from the get-go. When i find copies of this book, i try to buy it and give it away to someone who may read it.

I read a lot of Judy Blume and Beverly Cleary. But I loved the work of Shel Silverstein and can remember reading and checking out Where the Sidewalk ends over and over again.

Rachel December 19, 2011 at 10:34 pm

Oh I love so many books from my childhood, but I think the Laura Ingalls Wilder books are the ones that stand out the most in my memory and the ones that I am most looking forward to reading with my daughters when they get a little older. Thanks for the giveaway!

So many books, and its hard to remember which was my favorite. I remember right around my tween years really loving series, like the Hardy Boys, the Bobbsey Twins, and Nancy Drew. My dad had many classics that he passed down to me and now they are in my daughter's room for when she hits that age. I remember sneaking my book to bed and flipping on my little side light, staying up until late hours reading. I hope that my little ones have this same love of books and reading. Thanks for the giveaway! 🙂
