A publisher that I'm going to be doing some book reviews for in the near future is holding a drawing where five lucky winners will have their choice of three great books. Click on the link below to be directed to the site. On the first page you will find the books I will be reviewing and a link at the top of that page directing you to the contest entry page.

The contest runs through January 31, 2009.

The following is the product description for one of the prize books. (It reminds me of the feelings in my "Little Things" post from earlier in the week.)

2005 Logos Bookstores Award winner for Best Children's Book

With lighthearted illustrations and a sweet, reflective tone, best-selling author Karen Kingsbury encourages parents to savor not only their children's "firsts"--like first steps and first words--but the "lasts" as well. With the tenderness of a mother speaking directly to her child, Karen reminds us not to miss last days of kindergarten and last at bats in Little League amidst the whirlwind of life. Adapted from a poem in Rejoice, mothers and grandmothers everywhere will identify with the tenderhearted reflections in Let Me Hold You Longer. An ideal gift book for special occasions from baby showers to graduations. Now includes a bonus CD read by Karen!

If you enter and win be sure to stop back and let me know and stay tuned for the book reviews coming in the new year!


  1. Carrie - I don't see any other words on this post except Giveaway, Little Things and the website address for which I can't open. Can you try putting it in a different color font?

  2. We read that book after checking it out from the library once ... I was "keeping it together" and my daughter's were near tears.



  3. I can't read your post either. Help?

  4. NOW I can see it! Thanks!
    I'll be entering the contest, there's nothing better than free stuff!

  5. I love contests!! Thanks for having one. This looks like a great resource.
