So yes, I’m really still on break, hard at work on NaNoWriMo (so far so good!), but I had the opportunity to be part of Connie Arnold’s Blog Tour for the release of her latest picture book, Count 1,2,3 With Me. This tour is Also for her new inspiration book, Peaceful Moments of Love and Light. Connie is such a sweet, kind, and supportive author, so I was thrilled to be asked and couldn’t turn it down.
I had the chance to read Connie’s book, which counts from one to ten, painting scenes from the life of a child. It has a fun rhyming text, with bright, vivid images which can easily be counted by children learning to count. As a parent, I love that the text is short, without feeling skimpy. Counting the objects together would easily add length if you were looking to spend more time on a book, but I love finding quick, fun reads that I can read to my kids at night (especially when it is past bedtime–more than likely mine!).
Also, Readers can comment on this post, or on the posts of other stops in the blog tour, to receive entries in a drawing for three prizes:
As promised, today I unveil my super fun plans!
With WriteOnCon here this week, PLUS I’ll be hosting scads of family for a family reunion, I had this brilliant idea (okay, I stole my brother’s brilliant idea) for a fun way to still keep up with my blog.
So here’s the deal—ever heard of Apples to Apples? This is just like that, only you don’t get to draw cards. Here are the rules:
To sum up.
–I write a word. Example: Keyboard.
–You write an associated word. Example: Letters; Typing; Music; Piano; Singing; Writing
–I choose my favorites.
–Three someones win a fun prize.
Easy? Easy. But if you have questions, feel free to ask.
During that time, I apologize that I won’t be able to visit your blogs (can you say beach house?!!), or respond to your brilliant comments like usual (assuming you have an e-mail address connected to your profile), but thanks for visiting and good luck! I can’t wait to read your pithy, hilarious, and overall genius responses!
