Winning numbers: 10 & 20


I am so excited to be giving away TWO copies of this awesome book just in time for Christmas!!!  The Orange Shoes by Trinka Hakes Noble is my favorite children’s book of all time!  Seriously–I love this book so much.  My husband and I both get choked up each time we read it to our girls.  I even read this book to my daughter’s second grade class once, and all the boys and girls hung on every word.  We had a nice discussion about the book afterward, and I really felt like each child was inspired to do better and be kinder.  This wonderful story touches on wants versus needs, bullying, finding the positive in every situation, and the love of family.  It warms the heart and teaches valuable life lessons… I can’t say enough good things about it.

Sleeping Bear Press, the publisher of this great book and so many others (see this list of 100 Favorite Books that includes multiple books from Sleeping Bear Press) is donating two copies of The Orange Shoes, so there will be TWO winners for this giveaway!  Woohoo!!  And it couldn’t be easier to enter.  See below for details and maybe you will have a free copy of The Orange Shoes to put under your tree for a very special child in your life.  :)
