grandma's bookshelf - VeggieTown Voyage - I'm Giving One Away!

For the past couple weeks I've been sharing several book reviews  . . . I love books, reading and writing so I think starting a new year with books is a wonderful way to get the year off to a great start! So, today, I'm happy to let you know about another book . . . and give one away! VeggieTown Voyage is a three-book-collection of Veggie stories children are sure to enjoy - and learn from!

Veggietown Voyage
Authors - Cindy Kenney and Doug Peterson
Illustrator - Michael Moore
Publisher - Zonderkidz
Ages - 4+

Favorite Features -
  • Combination of three books; Lost in Place, Cool Hand Cuke and Ben Hurry
  • Each story delights children with the "adventures" of their Veggie friends
  • Solid messages about not being afraid, serving others and being patient
  • Scripture verses worked through each story
  • Colorful and fun illustrations
Children are sure to enjoy these three stories which take them to outer space, down on the farm and back to ancient Rome! Parents - or at least grandparents - are likely to recognize the story's "take" on old "classics" such as Ben Hur, Cool Hand Luke and Lost in Space . . . well, they may not all be "classics"! :-) At any rate, as Zonderkidz says, "This three-book collection of popular VeggieTown Values stories provides children with an ideal gift they will enjoy for years to come. Join Bob the Tomato, Larry the Cucumber and all their friends as they learn biblical values, morals and life lessons which make VeggieTown a great place to be!

I'm very happy to say, not only did Zonderkidz send one book for me to review, but they are making another available for me to give away (USA only)! If you'd like to be in the drawing for Veggietown Voyage, which will be on February 21, 2013,  please comment below to let me know if you have followed on Google+, Google Friend Connect, followed by liking on facebook with the tab in the "Find us on Facebook" box ON THE BLOG (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 this book 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!
