On the Sixth Day of Christmas: We Give Away Three Sets of Scholastic Books!

If you’re buying for kids this year and you don’t have a few books on the list, shame on you. Everything they say about lifelong readers is evidenced by my late nights – then AND now – under the covers with a good book. Don’t know where to start? Inside Out’s holiday picks from Scholastic will cover all the bases this year.

A touch and feel book from the Little Scholastic line is in order for the littlest readers, and Welcome Winter is the stocking stuffer that will warm up the season. A board book with a simple story line that will keep them engaged, the crinkly plastic “snow” crunching under baby’s boots and sparkly “snow” swirls in the air bring winter indoors while baby’s nice and warm in mom’s arms.

David Shannon’s portrayal of kids’ mischief is always on target and always hilarious. The author of the David series is back with Too Many Toys and another little boy drawn from real life . . . with a real life problem. Spencer needs to clean out his toy box, but he’s got love to spare for everything in there. Sound familiar? Just wait. Spencer finds out the real fun is in the box.

The Klutz line of craftable books has put to rest the “I’m booooored” whine for good. Now they’re keeping the kids busy in the days before the holidays so you can get something done. Don’t worry, they’re “helping.” Make Your Own Angel Ornaments boasts what makes every Klutz kit a hit – one package carries everything they need, from a book of instructions to the pieces and parts of their new creation. The angels are delicate little creatures, so this Klutz kit doubles as a storage box for after she’s done watching over your holiday.

In order to turn the bookstore Inside Out, Scholastic is offering three copies of all three of these books (that’s nine books in all y’all) to winners of the Sixth Day of the Inside Out 13 Days of Giveaways.

  2. “We’re going on a Leaf Hunt” is the kind of book I love. As a northerner who moved south, I always try to introduce our daughter to all the seasons I loved as a child. The winter book in the giveaway is perfect for this, too!!

  3. Love You Forever by Robert Munsch is a MUST READ for every child and parent. I still tear up when I read it. All three from your list sound wonderful, but, if I had to pick just one, I would love to have Too Many Toys.
