Chance to Win Free Books!



Chronicle Books is having its Second Annual Haul-idays Giveaway...so of course I am entering. This will be my first time, though. I heard about this contest from my friends over at Teach Mentor Texts, so I had to join in. 


Here's how it works:


If I am chosen, then I get to donate $500 worth of books to any charity of my choosing. I was asked to participate in World Read Aloud Day in March, sponsored by LitWorld. LitWorld promotes literacy worldwide, which is a huge undertaking that could certainly benefit from some extra books! So, that's who will get my books! 


Here is the list of books I plan on donating (which could also be yours if I win!) :



If YOU wold like to win the $500 haul of books, become a follower and leave a comment below telling me about what you would use your books for. If I win, I will choose one of you to win these books, too! It's that simple! Good luck!

  1. I'll be the first to comment!!! I think this is such a fun contest. Who wouldn't love a giant box of Chronicle books!?! I didn't even see those Charlotte books you listed. Will have to go check those out. And, of course, if you win you'll definitely pick me, right? Because I was the first to comment? And the books would go to all my kids - which is what I call my students - just like you call yours your babies. I do that a lot, I refer to my students as my kids and then sometimes I have to clarify that I mean my students versus my own sons. :) Glad you decided to join in! I hope LitWorld gets books from one of us!

  2. Oh! Love free books for my classroom library! My "Look! Look! New Books!" basket has been emptied -- my kids are lovin' the books! So this would be one chance to fill it up with new, new books! Thanks for the opportunity!

  5. I teach Reading and Social Studies to 5th graders. My students are really enjoying reading time this year. I created a reading area with pillows for them to take. I have lots of books, but little by little my books are disappearing. I love the fact that they are reading!! Thank you for sharing and congratulations!!

  6. We have so much in common - I'm a 5th grade teacher too and we have very similar wishlists.

    Feel free to comment back on my post:

  13. Miss P. Are you understanding that there are three bundles of books being given away? One to a blogger ($500) and the identical list to one of her/his commenters and then $500 in books to the charity of that bloggers choice. They get to pick their own books. $1500 in book in all!

    So your list should be what you would choose for yourself not for the charity. Now..you going to go change your list, I wonder? Keep me posted..

    That being said..my grandkiddies would love, love, love your stash of books ;D

  14. Great list! (and great charity!)

    The WHitby Witches is on my own list, and, since we already have the Ivy and Bean books, I put the paperdolls on my list as well!

    Good luck to you!
