Anyone who knows me knows that more than shoes, more than bacon, even more than chocolate, I love words. Handy, given my profession, to be sure. But seeing my kids learn to talk, learn to love stories, learn to read, learn to tell stories… that’s been pretty awesome.
Part of how we’ve always fostered that love in them is by having lots of books in the house at all times. Our bookshelves runneth over. But I firmly believe there is always room for just one (or two or three) more book(s).
Do you agree? This week one lucky Want Not reader is going to add a whole lot of words to a child’s life, courtesy of Scholastic. Our winner will receive both The Daddy Goose Treasury and the 2010 Scholastic Children’s Dictionary. Both are gorgeous books virtually guaranteed to make your kids love all things wordy.
Want to win ’em? Of course you do! First go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post by 8:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Thursday, August 5th, 2010 to be entered. Winner to be determined by random number drawing and favorite word. (Mine is obstreperous, by the way.)
