I haven’t ever run a contest here before but received an email offering up a copy of the book Percy, The Perfectly Imperfect Chicken by Rick Rieser (Author) and Dan Seward (Illustrator) and published at FastPencil.com. Having a four-year-old daughter, I’m always looking for books that teach good lessons. Percy deals with what it’s like to be different and what it means to be “perfect.”
This illustrated book creatively addresses the issues of prejudice and tolerance, two things that I have tried to address with my daughter even though she is only in preschool. I don’t think you can start too young with these kinds of important lessons.
The author has a daughter, too, so I’m sure he thought of this story with her in mind. He’s also a chicken farmer in addition to being a writer, by the way, so has some good experience observing chickens!
Do you have or know a child who would love a free copy of this book?
The giveaway is simple:
1. Must be based in the U.S.
2. Post a comment here on this blog stating why you’d like a copy of this book.
3. Deadline Oct 10.
4. Make sure to include your email address and/or URL in the comment form when you submit your comment but do NOT include your email in the body of the comment. We just need a way to contact you easily if you win. Even your Twitter handle could help us track you down!
I’ll ask 3 of my mommy blogger friends to judge the comments based on:
- creativity (I leave that up to you)
- emotional impact (funny or touching, etc)
So sharpen your pencils…I mean ready your typing fingers!
Why would YOU like to receive a copy of this book for a child you know?
