Hello again everyone, Paul R. Hewlett here with a post kicking off the Christmas Books Giveaway Hop. I’d like to thank Kathy at I Am A Reader Not A Writer and Laurie at Laurie Here for hosting this giveaway. Don’t miss out on the chance to win one of two wonderful children’s books by author Julia Dweck by signing up for the Dreaming of Summer Giveaway Hop hosted by Kathy at I Am A Reader Not A Writer and Me, My Shelf & I. Also don’t forget to enter award-winning author Crystal Marcos’s giveaway. There’s more than just a Kindle Fire (or a $150 Amazon gift card) up for grabs. Also, a reminder that I’m still on my blog tour (for a full list of tour dates click here). Yesterday I was on This Kid Reviews Books, a great children’s book site that is run by 10 year old Erik (with oversight from his parents). If you want a real, honest opinion about children’s books, tune in to his reviews.
I will be giving away 1 paperback of Lionel’s Christmas Adventure to a US/Canada resident. I will also give away the winners choice of any of my 3 books to an international winner. I’m pretty excited to be able to make it available in paperback, something I’ve never done before, so I thought, why not give one away?
I thought that I would discuss Christmas books since after all, this is a post about a Christmas book hop. My favorite Christmas book growing up was Dr. Seuss: How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Who doesn’t love the joyous festivities of the Whos’ in Whoville. The Grinch, I suppose doesn’t love them. Sporting a heart “two sizes too small” he launches his plan to raid Whoville stealing all the gifts, decorations, and even the Roast Beast.
Who can forget little Cindy Lou Who catching the Grinch in the act. The Grinch realizes that despite his treachery Christmas comes just the same. Realizing that Christmas is about more than gifts and decorations his heart grows three times larger. The Grinch proceeds to return all the things he stole to the Whos’ and is welcomed by them. I also love the Grinch’s poor little dog as he dresses him up in antlers and makes him pull the sleigh.
A wonderful book with typically fantastic rhymes and beautiful illustrations, How the Grinch Stole Christmas is entertaining and helps teach what Christmas is really all about, togetherness and thankfulness, not presents and decorations, or even Roast Beast.
