Back to School Giveaway!

I actually don't go back to school until after Labor Day... but many of my bloggin' buddies are heading back to school in early August. So, I thought I would do my giveaway this week.

A few weeks ago, I posted about one of my favorite back to school books. The book is called Hands as Warm as Toast.  The author, Lisa Himle, is a colleague and a friend of mine.  Lisa generously donated 3 copies of her book for me to giveaway.  I will also be giving away a $10 gift card to Target.
*You can click on the image below to read a description of the book, but I would purchase the book at Amazon (if I didn't already own a few copies).  It is really a perfect story to read during the first few weeks of school or any time that a child may be feeling nervous or unsure about trying something new.


 

Yep, 4 prizes means 4 winners!  The winners will be chosen randomly and you have until the end of the day on Saturday, July 30 to enter.  The first 3 winners chosen will win a copy of the book.  The 4th winner chosen will win a $10 Target gift card.  You must have a US Postal address to enter this giveaway. There are 4 easy ways to enter.

Followers may enter by leaving a comment for me below. (1 entry)

Visit my Teachers Notebook store and come back to leave a comment.  Add it to your "favorite" shops if you see something you like.  I will be having a sale soon! :) (1 entry)

Follow my Tpt store and come back to leave a comment.  (1 entry)

If you would like to blog about this giveaway, leave a comment below and the link. (1 entry)

The last day to enter this giveaway is Saturday, July 30.  Winners will be chosen/announced on Sunday, July 31.  Good luck! 

*A special thanks to Kristen from Ladybug's Teacher Files for the video tutorial for numbering comments.  She also did my blog design - which I still LOVE!  Thank you, Kristen!
