CONTEST TIME...and my *little lions*
Tonight while tucking A and J into bed...I read "Johnny Lion's Book" for the 6001st time. I'm not kidding...seriously. I can't even tell you what that book has been through at our house. You would be disgusted I'm sure. It isn't the well-written prose by Edith Thacher Hurd that compels us to read on...nor the 2-tone pencil drawing illustrations...both are equally awful. There are no charming "Seussical" rhymes or metaphors that ask us to look deep within. Just a really boring story about a little lion...his fairly lame adventures...and paragraphs of repetitive sentence structure (I have mentioned that we have a bit of lion fascination at our house haven't I?) Yet my girls have some sort of inborn fascination with this book. As you can see from the picture...it is in sad shape. It has been scotch taped, duck taped, and glued. I once thought about buying another copy on ebay...but then...I would have a back-up copy...and I'm truly hoping someday this book will magically disappear! It isn't that my youngsters don't have quality literature. They have bookshelves full of wonderfully compelling stories. They just LIKE "Johnny Lion's Book".
You may be asking...WHAT about the CONTEST...have no fear...I'm getting there!
One LUCKY winner will receive a CUSTOM *take a bow* tee!!! Hoodie, ringer, babydoll, tank... your choice of style and fabric!
1. Read this post and make a comment about your child's favorite book. (if you don't have a child in your life there is probably no need to post...you wouldn't look all that great in the tee anyways!)
2. Go to your local library and check out a copy of "Johnny Lion's Book"....JUST KIDDING...I wouldn't do that to you ;)
3. Stop back in next week when I announce the LUCKY WINNER of a FREE TEE!
You won't win unless you post. All postings will go into a hat and one of my very own *little lions* might draw YOUR NAME! Imagine the excitement :)
