We have a winner of The Road That Trucks Built!

It’s been a busy month of July here on Polilla Writes, and it’s been a great experience to be involved in the blog tours of When Your Lion Needs a Bath, When Your Elephant Has the Sniffles, and The Road That Trucks Built – all written by Susanna Leonard Hill. We’ve met her two illustrators – Daniel Wiseman and Erica Sirotich. We’ve learned some crazy, fun, surprising things about Susanna who shared recipes and crafts with us, and we’ve had three giveaways, one for each book, which brings me to …

the pleasure of announcing the winner of The Road That Trucks Built!

Using the random name picker thingie, I learned that ….

the winner’s comment included this: If I were one of these construction vehicles, I’d be a roller. 

And that person is …

DANIELLE!

CONGRATULATIONS,  DANIELLE!

You can expect a book in the mail from Susanna; just give her a little time. 🙂

Huge thanks to everyone who came to read and learn, participate and encourage. It means a lot to me that you came to visit my blog, and to Susanna, Daniel and Erica that you came to learn about their work.

I hope you all go purchase at least one copy of each of these fun books. (I’ve even made it super easy for you to find them by going to BUY THE BOOK here on my blog.) There are children out there who’ll enjoy them. Perhaps you’d like to donate a copy of one, two, or all three to your local school library or public library or day care. Books are meant to be shared and loved.

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂

Today I get to announce the winner of a copy of When Your Elephant Has the Sniffles written by Susanna Leonard Hill and illustrated by Daniel Wiseman!  yay!

 

 

 

 

 

 

I put the names into the random name picker tool and it selected ….

DEBRA!

CONGRATULATIONS, Debra! I sent you an email for your info. 🙂

Debra is the winner with this comment: “I would amuse my elephant by reading him a book and showing him the pictures that were drawn by Daniel Wiseman. They are whimsical and fun and would totally get my elephant’s mind off of his cold.”

Thank you so very much to everyone for participating. I really enjoyed your visits and comments. Please feel welcome to stop by even when there is no blog tour going on.

There is one more post here associated with Elephant; Tuesday come back for  snacks from Susanna. 🙂 And in the meantime, you can also enter the draw for your chance to win a copy of Trucks.

We have a winner of When Your Lion Needs a Bath!

It’s been a busy time around here! Lions, and Elephants, and interviews … oh my!  And it’s not over yet.

Now it is my pleasure to announce the winner of a copy of When Your Lion Needs a Bath, written by Susanna Leonard Hill and illustrated by Daniel Wiseman.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Using the random name picker tool, one name was chosen.

Congratulations, Teri! You’re IT! 🙂

This was her comment:

I figure that I like lavender bubbles in my bath to calm me, so I would place a shady acacia tree in the bath to help my lion feel at home and relaxed.

Teri, I’ve let Susanna know you won, and one of us will be in touch with you about how you want your copy of When Your Lion Needs a Bath to be personalized. Exciting!  🙂

Thank you so very much to everyone for participating. I really enjoyed your visits and comments. Please feel welcome to stop by after the blog tour is over.

Next Saturday, July 22, someone leaving a comment HERE will win a copy of Susanna’s When Your Elephant Has the Sniffles. So, let us know … how would you care for your elephant if he has the sniffles and gets bored?

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂

Wow, I must be tired. As I write this it is Tuesday evening; I’ve been baking and wrapping gifts today and when I looked over the little I’d typed above I had two silly mistakes – totally wrong words, not simply misspells. I was almost giving someone a “give card”.  🙂

Okay, back to the fun stuff.

We have a winner!

I used random.org name picker and found the winner …

I prefer online shopping when I need a quick gift but love the feeling of shopping in a brick and mortar store. Feels more personal buying gifts as well as supporting small businesses.

Now I must go do some kitchen cleanup, then get some sleep so I can be ready to continue my Christmas baking.

Do you do much baking for the holidays?
