Fall Y'all Bloggy Giveaway

This Bloggy Giveaway will end promptly at 4 pm EST today, Friday the 2nd of November. Thank you for participating. Because there were so many responses (Yay you!) I will be using a Random Number Generator to determine the winners, who I will notify by email. I will also post their names here on my blog. Note, I ONLY go to the post office on Thursdays.

Shannon, from Rocks in My Dryer, is sponsoring another Giveaway. Last summer she hosted the first one, which had hundreds of participants (including me) giving away prizes. And here we are again. All you have to do to be eligible to win is to leave a comment with your name and contact information. Say something nice, tell me why you want to win!

So what am I offering this time around? Books! Yes, Books. Two absolutely wonderful books. Two fabulous prizes.

The first book is The Dangerous Book for Boys, by Conn Iggulden and Hal Iggulden. If you haven't yet seen this best selling book, it's a must have for any boy from elementary to middle school age. Or older. Even adult men are coveting this book. It is a compendium of lots of important information that kids today just don't get a chance to learn. It covers around eighty topics, from building a tree house to catching rabbits and how to understand girls. The Dangerous Book is a guide book for dads as well as their sons, as a reminder of lore and technique that have not yet been completely lost to the digital age. Recall the adventures of Scott of the Antarctic and the Battle of the Somme, relearn how to palm a coin, tan a skin, and, most charmingly, wrap a package in brown paper and string. The book's ambitions are both modest and winningly optimistic: you get the sense that by learning how to place a splint or write in invisible ink, a boy might be prepared for anything he might need later in life.

Dozens of short chapters, in fairly random order, cover a wide range of topics in conversational prose. Simple instructions for coin tricks and paper airplanes alternate with excerpts from history such as Famous Battles and facts about ancient wonders of the world and astronomy. The dangerous aspect is more apparent in such chapters as Making Cloth Fireproof, and Hunting and Cooking a Rabbit, but also applies to the overall premise that action is fun and can be worth the risks. A section on stickball, for instance, includes advice to possibly flee the vicinity in the event of a broken window. The information is appropriately concise. The knot-tying section, for example, sticks to five basic varieties with clear instructions and useful diagrams. Occasional topics such as Marbling Paper and Latin Phrases Every Boy Should Know may not fit the stereotypical interests of young males, but support the general theme of cultivating curiosity.

The second book offering is The Daring Book for Girls by Andrea J. Buchanan and Miriam Peskowitz . Modeled after the Dangerous Book for Boys, this brand new offering is the manual for everything that girls need to know -- and that doesn't mean sewing buttonholes! Whether it's female heroes in history, secret note–passing skills, science projects, friendship bracelets, double dutch, cats cradle, the perfect cartwheel or the eternal mystery of what boys are thinking, this book has it all. But it's not just a guide to giggling at sleepovers --although that's included, of course! Whether readers consider themselves tomboys, girly-girls, or a little bit of both, this book is every girl's invitation to adventure.

I'll be reviewing this book for MotherTalk next month for my review blog, and have just started reading it, so I'm going to turn it over to Design Mom, who already reviewed it. She says:

"...And to be honest, I was a little worried I might not like it. Would it be too pc? Would it be too girly and assume girls mostly like to groom? Would it pretend girls are the same as boys? But my worries were unfounded. It's lovely.

Some of my favorite sections:

Make Your Own Quill Pen

Telling Ghost Stories

How to Play Four Square (My kids were totally asking me about Four Square and I couldn't remember the rules. Hooray for the book!)
How to Tie a Sari

Lemon-Powered Clock

Campfire Songs

Robert's Rules

Books That Will Change Your Life
Plus, lots of interesting women throughout history. And the French and Spanish words and phrases that every girl needs to know. And many, many, many more sections.

Oh. And the cover has this subtle glitter thing going on that is really fantastic. I've already bought two copies as gifts. A great book. Ralph finds it as interesting as Maude found The Dangerous Book for Boys. If you have both sons and daughters, you'll enjoy having both books in your home."

Both of these books are guaranteed to have your kids enthralled with all the cool things they can learn, and you will be able to learn a few things yourself.

Remember, to win these books, leave a comment with your name and contact information! And the more creative the comments, the more fun I'm going to have wading through them, if you get my drift!

Please enter me. I have 2 boys and 2 girls. Nice even number. lol I need some things for these kiddos to do. The other evening my youngest son came waddling down the stairs holding our toothbrushes and hands them to us. My middle daughter says ewww I'm not using this. I said well he was just carrying them all you have to do is wash them really good. Along comes my other son carrying 2 more toothbrushes and says mom I found these two in the toilet.. Ummm second thought lets throw them away!! LOL eewwww. I am locking mine up from now on. lol

I have another for you. My littlest again very creative fellow. lol While eating dinner one evening I notice he was putting peas up his nose instead of eating them. So I had him blow and one fell out. I saw a shell still in there so we blew some more and got that one out. I think all is well now so we all start eating again . One of the other children yells mom a pea. I look and lo and behold one falls from the other nostrol. So we blow again and nothing. Thinking all is well again we finish and little guy goes playing with toys and gets upset about sharing ,sneezes and three more peas come flying out. This time we are positive they are all out. Here crossing my fingers. I could go on and on entertaining you but you probably have lots to read. lol

God bless

Blogger kadusey said...

Well, I don't know yet which of these books the baby in my belly would prefer to read, but they both sound delightfully fun to me. I have to admit that I'm just as interested in learning how to properly build a tree house as I am in learning those French and Spanish words that every girl needs to know that I somehow never learned.

If I were to win, I suspect that by the time my baby's old enough to apply any of the advice in either of these books that they will already be well-read and loved by me, and possibly my hubby as well. Though he already knows how to palm a coin, I am highly suspicious of his brown-paper-packaging skills.

Although my two boys already make me want to pull my hair out at times with their wild antics, I know that they would totally get a kick out of this book as they grow. I maybe either bald or completely gray-haired by the time they go through this book, but it seems like it's certainly a necessary book for being a boy.

I'm mom to 2 Pirates and a Princess, so either book would be great, especially since eldest pirate has long hair and is still in that pre-adolescent gender-neutral stage. Pirate #2 is all boy, while the Princess, not quite 3 years old, could swordfight the stuffin' out of any "bad guy" who gets in her way (all the while holding onto her purse, of course!).

I've been meaning to get the Dangerous Boys book for a while, especially after the guys flooded my garage in an attempt to make a waterfall down our driveway, and I'm pleased to hear about a Girl's book, too, since the princess is so taken with muraling on the living room walls.

I have three sons and a new farm. I'm not sure I need ideas for dangerous things since they seem to find plenty on their own! The book might give me some ideas on not so dangerous things (like not climbing up to the roof...at age 4!!!)
I also have one new baby daughter. After three boys I need a refresher on what to do with a girl! Thanks for a great giveaway!

I've been a semi-regular reader for a few months, though I've not commented before. Blame my comment on the Dangerous Book for Boys. Or the rain. Or whatever. Anyway, I've been meaning to get a Dangerous Book for my boys (ages 10 and 12), and I thought your giveaway was the perfect time to de-lurk and maybe win a book.

I hope you're feeling better these days. Enjoy your Halloween!

It's just the kind of book we would hide from my 13yo, who would be teaching his 5yo brother from it! And now there's one for girls!? Don't let my 11 and 8yo girls know! Actually, we would ALL have a blast and enjoy re-doing everything in a few years when my 1yo daughter is old enough to enjoy these!

Oh, I can't believe you're giving these away!

I was at the book store a few weeks ago giving myself a treat and had to stop myself from buying The Dangerous Book for my son, since it was "mommy time" I refrained quite well, but have since been thinking about that book!

Then, a few nights ago we were at Micheals buying paint for our pumpkins, my hubby and son saw some car models and I thought, how much more fun would they have building a go cart instead from the Dangerous Book...ahh here I go again thinking about that book.

Oh, and I didn't know they had a version for girls! My two daughters and I would have a blast!!!

o.k. enough rambling...needless to say I so hope to win!!!
