Last year I had a lot of fun participating in the Kid Lit Giveaway Hop in honor of Children’s Book Week, so I am pleased to take part again this year. Thanks to the hosts, Youth Literature Reviews and Mother Daughter Book Reviews! The Giveaway Hop lasts from May 12 – May 18.
What is a kid lit giveaway hop? Why, you get to hop from one blog to the next, checking out what great kids’ books you might win! At the end of this post you will find the link to the list that will keep you hopping.
If this is your first time to Author S. Smith.com, welcome! (And even if it’s not your first time :))
I’m giving away one signed paperback copy of the first book in my Seed Savers Series, Treasure. If you already own Treasure, then you may choose one of the other books (Lily or Heirloom).
In a future where growing your own food is against the law, three young friends risk their safety by studying the illegal subject of gardening. The children’s mentor, an elderly acquaintance named Ana, entices the children with her description of the food she knew as a child–food unlike the square, processed, packaged food they have always known. Constantly watching, however, is GRIM, the government agency that controls the nation’s food source and keeps in check all potential troublemakers.
Can they, only children, help change the world?
“A creative, engaging, well written book series, that is filled with action, and a lot of truth as it touches the very real issue of preserving seeds from Greedy Corporate Seed Monopoly and understanding the importance of knowing how to grow our own healthy food. This book series is AWESOME!!!!!!!” –Rachel Parent, teen activist and founder of Kids Right to Know
One winner will be chosen via random.org and the giveaway is open internationally. The winner will be contacted by email and his/her name posted on AuthorSSmith Facebook page.
FIVE WAYS TO ENTER
I had so much fun last year reading about everyone’s favorite childhood books, that I’d like to do a similar thing this year. I’d like the focus to be on novels rather than picture books, and think of one that you read or had read to you that was less well-known. I think we’ve all heard of Little Women, but do you all know about the Princess and the Goblin? Or how about Hitty: Her First Hundred Years? These were both books I enjoyed reading aloud to my children when they were little. How about you; what lesser-known books were/are favorites for you and/your kids?
