I'm so excited! Tonight, I was contacted by a sweet reader, Diane, who I've been in touch with off and on since January and she let me know that there was a new old lady book that came out called There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Books. She kindly offered to send it to me! How sweet was that? I headed to Amazon to check it out and there is another book being released in November called There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Rose for Valentine's Day. I LOVE this series of books!
The Amazon.com 4-for-3 promotion for books is still going on, so I ordered four new books, including pre-ordering There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Rose. I can't wait to get them all! I also used a $5 Amazon gift card I got for free for using SwagBucks, so it only cost me $16.97 for four books. If you don’t know about SwagBucks, please check out this post. You are missing out if you aren’t signed up!
I am also a huge Lisa Campbell Ernst fan! Ever since I saw her at a convention a couple of years ago and she showed us how she comes up with her illustrations, I have been in awe of her books. One of our teachers (pictured on the left below) was able to get her to visit our school. The kids got to get their books autographed and she even drew an illustration with each autograph. I wish I could find the picture of us when she came to our school and I got my class copy of Gingerbread Girl autographed, but it must be on my school computer. I ordered a copy of her book Goldilocks Returns. It’s a little older, but I don’t have it so it will be great to add to my Fairy Tales unit.
