Since we love giving things away, and since we love great books for kids, this month we are offering you a chance to win some wonderful books from Bezaelel Books, a fantastic Catholic publishing house. Five winners will be chosen for the contest, each one receiving one of the following books:
Hiding the Stranger in Hickory Valley – Joan L. Kelly, author of “My Big Feet” and “Lonny the Lizard finds a Treasure,” delivers another winning book! The adventure begins when a young farm girl, Katie, finds an unconscious teenager in a meadow. When she and her siblings try to help him discover answers, they find themselves involved in intrigue and possible danger. Who is this mysterious stranger who suddenly shows up on a small Illinois farm? Where did he come from? Where is he going? This first book in the trilogy takes the reader on an adventure filled quest!
My Big Feet – Rob Sanderson and his friends knew that they weren’t part of the ‘popular’ kids, but that didn’t stop them from accepting each other and facing life’s challenges. Even when those challenges involved intrigue and espionage! Kids and grown ups, too, will love reading about this group of misfits as they combine forces to find a way to outwit dangerous spies and save their new classmate and her family. (Ages 9-12)
Sweet Tweets – “Sweet Tweets,” by Trudy Schubert, was inspired by Trudy’s love of children’s books and her desire to help the Lakeland School of Walworth County, an institution dedicated to helping children with autism. Drawing upon her own background as children’s librarian and storyteller at Williams Bay Library and as a preschool teacher, Trudy has combined her great wit and fun-loving personality to bring Chicken Chineka, Lambkins, and the Easter Bunny to life in a beautifully illustrated tale of the value of team effort and gratitude. Sure to delight young and old alike; all proceeds of “Sweet Tweets” go to the Lakeland School of Walworth County.
Isabel’s Sister – “Isabel’s Sister” is a beautiful story of life and promise in the Resurrection. Once again, author Harriet (Kety) Sabatini captures the beauty of faith in this, her second book. For everyone who loved “Joseph’s Hands,” this book is sure to please. For those not yet familiar with Harriet’s prose, or Marie’s magnificent art work, “Isabel’s Sister” will be a newfound treasure in books that every Christian child should have!
