WFMW: FREE children's gook giveaway- Fairy Foals
Happy Wednesday to you! It's time once again to post another WFMW tip! This is sort of a tip, as in a tip-off to a free giveaway!

Kerry with Sourcebooks, Inc sent me a couple of copies of a beautiful hard cover book called Fairy Foals.  I'm giving away one here on my blog for someone else to enjoy.

Here's what the back cover says:

A magic garden, tiny horses with butterfly wings, a journal unlike any other!

One day Suzanah was out exploring her garden, looking for something inspiring to take back to the studio to draw, when she found something more than was extraordinatry.

You hold in your hands a perfect replica of the very diary Suzanah kept over the course of a year while she explored her magically transformed garden, watching, sketching, and writing about the mazing fairy foals.  But it is so much more than a diary; it is a story of adventure, friendship and the truly magical things that are hidden in plain view.

Now, Amazon says that this book has a Reading level: Ages 9-12 but I can tell you that my 3 1/2 year old son and 18 month old foster daughter loved having it read to them!

The illustrations in this book are fantastic!  The colors are vibrant, with lush settings. The detail in these pictures (the color and the black and white) is amazing!

If you'd like to win a copy of this book, just leave me a comment.  I'll randomly choose a winner early Friday morning!

Scoring a free children's book works for me. To find out what works for others, be sure to check out the other links at Shannon's, the creator of Works-For-Me Wednesday!

Some of my past WFMW entries are found here.
