300 followers Giveaway

3 is my favorite number-- so how wonderful that I come back to the world of blogging to 300 followers. Whoopee! When I started blogging in December, I never dreamed that anyone would care enough about what I have to say to follow me. I remember the day that I checked my blog and called my husband to tell him that I had *gasp* 17 followers! Of course he thought I was ridiculous but what does he know :)?!

I want to celebrate this milestone by doing a giveaway with Sylvan Dell Publishing Company again! My connections are limited but, oh my, what a fantastic connection to have! Thanks Sis! This giveaway will be for THREE fantastic books!

Here is the first book and one of my favorites. I love the connection Big Cat, Little Kitty makes between the exciting cats of the wild and your everyday house cat! As a strong believer in the power of picture books, I truly think this book is perfect for all elementary grade levels.


Habitat Spy is perfect to be used in *shocker* a unit on habitats. I think it would be great to talk about how many habitats can exist in a small area!


The Glaciers are Melting is not only a great addition to your science library, but offers a wonderful opportunity to tie in a classic fable like Chicken Little. Peter Pika runs around informing all the other animals that the glaciers are melting. I cannot say enough about the wonderful discussion opportunities that would arise from reading this book to your class.

So now that I have you all hungry for some great children's lit, here is how you enter the giveaway. Leave a separate comment for each one that you complete!!! This giveaway will end Monday at 10:00 p.m.

1. Become a follower or tell me that you are already a follower
2. Blog about this giveway
3. Add my blog to your sidebar (either in blogroll format or my button)
4. Like Sylvan Dell's facebook page or tell me that you previously have done this
5. Tell me why you would love to win these books!

Thanks for "listening" to what I have to say in my blog posts and giving me the encouragement to be a better teacher!
