Storytime Gift-away Giveaway: Llama Llama Hardback Picture Book Set Of Three ($50 value)

Welcome to the first official Storytime Gift-away Giveaway!

USA entrants only please.

Children's books are the berries! 

And as parents and educators, we know that reading aloud to babies and young children can instill an early love of reading and appreciation of books.  Even more importantly, it gives little ones a strong foundation for building cognitive, language and pre-literacy skills.

It is any surprise that we feel books make the best children's gifts for any occasion?  

The joy and value of a book is endless-- it truly is a gift that keeps on giving.  

So we are utterly over the moon and beyond thrilled to share our love of children's books by offering this stupendously spectacular gift to the lucky winner of the Storytime Gift-away Giveaway:

Three hardbook picture books from the Llama Llama series by Anna Dewdney!

A fifty dollar value!

The titles:
llama llama red pajama
llama llama misses mama
llama llama holiday drama

Are you familiar with the llama llama books? 

 Oh my, they are as cute as can be: absolutely delightful rhymes and illustrations! 

And the stories are spot on in showing situations that bring a three to five year old to the end of his/her tether.

llama llama is such a typical toddler and llama mama is such a good mama.

I love these books!  My little one and I have paperback editions of llama llama red pajama (about bedtime drama) and llama llama mad at mama (about shopping drama-- not included in this giveaway) and it is really funny how we both relate to the stories. 

These books never get tiresome to read aloud-- at least not to me. 

This set would make an ideal gift for any child or split it up and give one each to three children. Or gift them to an early childhood teacher.

But before you can hear the oohs and ahs of delight from gifting, you gotta win it! 

Enter to win with this nifty Rafflecopter form!
(Rafflecopter is so cool but this is my first time setting up a giveaway with it so fingers crossed that it works)


  1. My daughter loves Llama! I'd love to win these for her.


  2. These books are sooo cute! I don't have any kids but I would love to gift these to one of my nieces or nephews!

  3. Kelly: Please enter with the rafflecopter form-- Rafflecopter will choose a winner at random so get your name in the hat!

    Lisa: They would love these books and you would have such fun reading to them-- Thanks for entering. Good luck!

  4. Hi Lesa! I can't figure out how to get it to work. I did "like" you on FB and am already a follower. I am going to feature this contest on my blog today or tomorrow btw. Are you doing a BBB soon? I can do a post on that, I just got some great books at the library sale.

  5. It says this when I try:

    "Please complete the mandatory entries first."

  6. Kathy: So sorry but I bet we can figure out how to make it work. You have to click the 'I did this' on the mandatory 'follow this blog' entry-- you should get a pop-up for your name and email. fill'em in then you should be able to click the 'I did this' on the optional extra entries. If it still doesn't work for you, I will hunt up the Rafflecopter vid to explain how to enter Rafflecopter giveaways. I'm going to send you this message via FB to to make sure you get it. I want you to enter!

    I've been a slug about BBB lately-- I hope to do one every other week though so if I don't post one today it will be next Monday.


  7. Hi Lesa, I got it ... you were right, you just have to do the first one, even if you are already a follower. Thanks! I'll work on my BBB post and save it until I see you are doing one; don't worry about making one just for me. Have a great day!

    Kathy M.

  8. Good luck to everyone! What a nice set.

  9. What a wonderful collection of Childrens books. They are lovely. Thank you for introducing me to them and for the opportunity to win.

    Warm Regards,

  10. Thank you for this opportunity! I am sure my niece would love these. She is having trouble reading, and is being made fun of at school. I hope I win!!!

  11. I love these books. My kid loves them even more.
