And The Holiday Book Winners Are…

Congratulations to our winners Caroline B, Amie, Christina P, Ali, Julie R, and Tran!  Thank you to everyone who entered, and for supporting The Green Baby Guide!  We encourage you to check out our original Gift Guide for Teachers for ideas on what NOT to get your kid’s teacher for the holidays, and a few good ideas on what TO get.

A big thanks to Sky Horse Publishing and Sky Pony Press, which publishes kid and middle grade books we’ve enjoyed at Halloween as well, for sponsoring our giveaway.

We’re starting another giveaway in a few days, so if you didn’t win this time, stay tuned!

Tough Cookie

tough-cookieCaroline B has won a copy of Tough Cookie by Kate Louise. As we mentioned, it combines a lesson in kindness with fun whimsical illustrations by Grace Sandford. A gingerbread man is baked without any ginger, and makes up for his deficiency by causing trouble and being greedy. If he wants to stay in the bakery, he has to learn how be generous and helpful.

Whether or not your Elf on the Shelf, or Santa Claus, needs help keeping your kids in line during the days of gifts and cookies, Tough Cookie will put a smile on everyone’s face.

Holiday Crafts

Amie, Christina P, Ali, Julie R, and Tran, have each won a copy of Holiday-crafts-bookHoliday Crafts By Linda Reece. While there are quick and easy project ideas for December, this book isn’t just for Winter Holidays. Whether or not you keep it for yourself or give it to your kid’s teacher, the projects will provide a creative opportunity for children (and adults) throughout the year.

What we love most is that you probably already have the materials necessary lying around the house, and the projects are suited for the detail oriented and short-attention span crafters alike.
