My Favorite Books Giveaway | Feature

I am starting today with two features in the 
My Favorite Books Giveaway.

I can't wait to share all the great bloggers that chose to participate 
in this great giveaway,
as well as share why they chose the books they did! 

The first blogger I'd like to introduce you to is
Meagan of The Curried Nut.
Meagan is a born-and-bred Washingtonian who likes to wax eloquent on apples, 
Lord of the Rings, and the finer points of Indian restaurants. 
She is an avid reader, and has been blogging since February 2013.
She uses blogging as an excuse to try things she might not otherwise do.

Meagan chose to donate
Morris Goes To School by B. Wiseman
Morris Goes to School is a part of the I Can Read book series,
and is a great book to have on hand for when your little ones first start reading.
When I asked Meagan why this was one of her favorite children's books, she said
"I read Morris Goes to School when I was in early elementary; it’s one of the first books 
I remember reading on my own, and I loved it. 
The pictures, the story, everything. 
I read a lot of books over the years, and this was absolutely one of my favorites. 
Its charm has withstood the test of time, and as I read it now to my nieces and nephew 
(and see nephew pointing, smiling, and tracing over Morris’s antlers), 
I am truly blessed to pass along the love I feel for this little book to the next generation.

The next blogger I'd like to introduce you to is
Chrissy of Shine Bright Little Mama.
Chrissy is a mom of three and created her blog
"in hopes of helping other mamas out there realize that they too
can shine bright
even when their little darlings are in the midst of a full blown tantrum."

We need more people like Chrissy in the world! :)

Chrissy chose to donate
Barnyard Dance by Sandra Boynton
When I asked Chrissy why Barnyard Dance was one of her favorite
children's books, she said
“The Barnyard Dance” by Sandra Boynton was given to my son 
as a birthday gift a couple of years ago. 
My kids instantly fell in love with the silliness and musical rhythm of the book. 
I love to read it using different voices! 
We have since read Boynton’s other books, and love them just as much as this one!
I have a couple books by Sandra Boynton for my little man,
and I not only have to agree with Chrissy 
but I promise you they are so much fun to read!

Stay tuned...
More bloggers and great books to come!
