Just In Time For Christmas: Giveaway

Audrey isn't the hugest fan of reading, so whenever we find high-interest reading material for her, we load up our library bag, hoping to make reading more motivational and not just a chore.  She's not the offspring of avid readers, so it's no surprise.  Although I love to read now, my high-interest reading material when I was young was Bop magazine...not the most academically challenging nor spiritually fortifying.  So, when we found out some friends of ours were publishing the Power Bible, we were excited to get it in Audrey's hands.

It's basically the Bible from start to finish in comic form. Biblically accurate and completely engaging, it's been awesome to see Audrey learn so much and be so excited to read. She blasted through the first two books, so CA Grandma bought the rest of the set for her and let's just say that tonight, she was bummed that she couldn't stay up to read more. She's been saying things like, "I didn't know that..." and we'll respond with, "Really? Did that really happen?" And lo and behold, it did. I'm so excited for her to get a big picture of the Bible so that she knows the framework of the glorious story of Jesus. It's in no way a substitute for the Bible itself, but a wonderful and creative tool to supplement scripture.

The company also just came out with a cute calendar. Audrey's totally into months and dates, so it's perfect.

Alrighty, now's the time where I ask all 10 of my readers to enter a giveaway. There are 2 prizes, so there's a good chance you'll win! The 1st commenter chosen at random will win one calendar and Book 1 of the series. The 2nd commenter chosen at random will win one calendar and Book 2 of the series.

1. Like their facebook page and leave a comment on my blog telling me what YOU loved reading as a kid.  I KNOW I wasn't the only one who liked Bop magazine!
2. For an additional entry, visit their website and leave a comment telling me you did so.

You have until Sunday night, 8pm PST and I'll announce the winners Monday morning.

Yay!  I'm excited for you already.

Hi Sue!

I loved all the books in the Babysitters Club series. I would buy them through the Scholastic book orders from school and looked forward to the day they arrived! :)

I just visited the Power Bible's website! Looks great and it's encouraging to know it's Biblically accurate. I was very interested in another comic book-style Bible, but some of those reviews stated that it contains a lot of speculation.

Hi!!
Just visited the website. Stumbled upon your site (and was completely encouraged & challenged) while trying to find info about the PowerBible. (I saw the Korean version on one of my friend's fb page) Anyways, when I was young, I loved to read the classics collection my mom bought for me (I know, I know...^^^). My favorite titles include Little Princess, Tom Sawyer, Little Women... makes me want to pick up those books again!

hi you... i actually loved reading everything. but as i entered my tween years - i think there was something called tiger beat... WAY too old school for you to even know what it is. (maybe you can ask your cousin :))

hi sue. we have an audrey too and i'm hoping she'll love to read this bible--she's only in kindergarten so it might be slower going. i'm a fan of their fb page and have seen their website.

i read all the little house on the prairie book (and watched all the episodes), black stallion series (LOVED horses), beverly cleary, and anything else i could get my hands on.

Hi Sue,

Thanks for posting the giveaway - I think my little sister might really enjoy it (meaning, me. :) )
It was totally the Babysitter's Club series and BOP/Tiger Beat for me. :)In fact, I think I might have some posters of Mike Vitar (from the Sandlot) and Hanson in my memory box!

Elisabeth S said...

I LOVED to read as a child. I read all that have been mentioned plus a whole lot more!
