Our first book giveaway. Wahoo! If you're stopping by for the first time, welcome! Here in the Tub we're all about children's literacy. We look at reading as a family activity ... something we can do together. So, for our first book giveaway, we wanted to select items that centered on our guiding principles:
- Reading together promotes reading, encourages kids to be life-long readers, and creates memories for success.
- Reading is more than just memorizing letters or letter sequences. It is about understanding words and using them as a tool for life.
Cranium FunFolio - Volume 1 by Cranium Books. This is a one-of-a-kind book that you create together. You have everything you need to draw, act, play, laugh, and write your own adventures. Themes in this volume encourage kids to "create a museum exhibit, design their own robot, and invent silly songs." (LB Kids, 2006)
In the Beginning by Chuck Fischer. This is Chuck Fischer's new pop-up book for the whole family. "An ingenious series of three-dimensional spreads with fold-outs and narrative booklets, In the Beginning shows how the timeless narratives of the Book of Genesis have inspired artists for thousands of years and continue to do so today."
