700 posts: A GIVEAWAY!

Wow, another 100 posts bite the dust! If you're reading this, then chances are you are a loyal, committed reader and I want to thank for being here on this journey with me through the crazy rollercoaster ride that is life! You make the journey that much sweeter to savour. So thank you.

And it's become quite the tradition with me to do a wee giveaway for my lovely readers every time another 100 rolls around, so who am I to want to mess with tradition?!

This giveaway is for a delightful book called Blue Gnu. 

It  was only released earlier this year, and I only came upon it when Noah brought it home from the library at school a few week's back. And I just loved every word.

What's not to love about a book that starts like this:

Boo was blue.
A blue gnu.

The one and only
blue gnu.

It's a story about individuality, but also about friendship. "My name is Hoo" said the other gnu. "Lets be friends, me and you. Everything's much more fun with two." These are just some of the lovely lyrical lines in the story, and the rhyming throughout makes it a joy to read.

At age 6, the words are simple enough that Noah can read the whole story, so it would make a great present even for kids who can read. Or as a parent, it's equally delightful to read to your kids.

So for you my lovely readers, this is an awesome chance to get one of your Christmas presents sorted early if you are lucky enough to win the giveaway.

But you gotta be in to win, so to enter leave me a comment sharing: if you were going to buy one children's book this Christmas what it would be? Then we can all get some other ideas for great gifts too!

Entries close next Tuesday, open to anyone, anywhere!

Good luck and thanks for your ongoing support of MNMs!
