Launch Party: Giveaway #5

Giveaway is now closed.
Our fifth giveaway to celebrate the launch of our new site is a wonderful giftset valued at $27.99. The Gifted Grasshopper is such a wonderful idea - a great way to get your little ones excited about reading. Reading is one of the most important early learning skillsets your child will acquire - why not do everything you can to make it memorable and exciting for them!

The Gifted Grasshopper was started by two former first grade teachers turned moms, Jen & Laura. The Gifted Grasshopper is the result of their lifetime love of children's literature. They have made it so easy to shop their great online store. You can browse according to age group - which we all know makes a big difference in reading material selection.

Each set of books comes with a great tote, grasshopper glasses & bookmark, and Griffen the Gifted Grasshopper plush. Please do take a moment to check out this wonderful shop and definitely consider the gift of reading for your own children!

To enter this giveaway - leave a comment telling us the following: Your favorite children's book & what book(s) you currently have on your nightstand.

Don't forget to check out the other launch party giveaways: {9.11, 9.12, 9.13, 9.14, today, tuesday, & wednesday} - everyday we'll post something new for you to ooooohhh & ahhhh over. You can still enter the first four giveaways! All winners will be selected on Wednesday, September 17th at midnight and will be announced on the new site on Thursday the 18th.
