grandma's bookshelf - Dinosaur Farm - I'm Giving One Away!

Every year I have the opportunity to review a lot of books - most are good books, but I was recently invited to review an adorable book, a book which is fun and unexpected - and I get to give one away as well! Dinosaur Farm is a very fun idea for a book . . . Josiah and Caleb gave it their "seal of approval", so I'm happy to share it with you today!

Dinosaur Farm
By - Frann Preston-Gannon
Publisher - Sterling Children's Books
Ages - 4-7

Favorite Features - 
  • Cute story
  • Fun illustrations
  • Unexpected ending is sure to leave children laughing!
Sterling Children's Books says; "It is hard work being a farmer and even harder running a Dinosaur Farm. Children will love spending a day on this vibrant farm, filled with charming prehistoric creatures of every shape and size@! They'll follow the farmer from dawn till dusk, trough feedings, cleanings, baby hatchings, and finally to a sweet bedtime,. Who knew dinosaurs could be so cuddly? With clever dino-touches throughout and vibrant artwork, Frann Preston-Gannon's picture book will become a perennial favorite."

I agree! Dinosaur Farm is sure to be a favorite! I love how it made Josiah and Caleb laugh as we read through the story and I love how Josiah was surprised by how the farm is a farm for dinos! Dinosaur Farm is definitely on my "favorite books" list and I'm delighted for the opportunity to give one away (USA only). If you are over the age of 18, live in the USA and would like to be included in this give-away, which will be on August 30, 2014, you may enter by commenting below to tell me what kind of dino you would like to have if you had a farm for dinos . . . I think my favorite is a stegosaurus.

Additional entries in this give-away are available if you follow on Google+, Google Friend Connect, follow by liking on facebook with the tab at this link (not just liking the post) and/or have followed grandma's cookie jar by email. For each of these which you have done you will receive one entry. In addition, if you "share" this post, you'll receive an additional entry (please let me know if you share!) This will help me be able to draw names from among people who would like to win Dinosaur Farm and it gives you several ways to enter the give-away! Thank you for reading grandma's cookie jar and for sharing it with the people you know!
