Square Cat Autographed Book Giveaway!



A while back, the sweet author/illustrator, Elizabeth Schoonmaker sent me a copy of her book Square Cat and another autographed copy to give away to one lucky reader! I had the opportunity to read the book for the first time this school year. We are always looking for a book to go with our math units and my co-worker, Robin, found the book Square Cat for our square projects and it fit perfectly. The story is so cute!

My daughter read the story Square Cat and completed a project in her class, as well. Her teacher, Lisa from Teaching Kindergarten Kiddos, posted a picture of  my daughter's version of Eula, the Square Cat on her blog and Elizabeth Schoonmaker posted it on her blog, as well. How fun! Check it out below. :)



Square Cat is story about a cat who wants so badly to fit in, but soon realizes with the help of her friends that she is special because of her shape and doesn't have to be a certain shape to fit in. I love that the story has a great moral! The best part of this book is that the illustrations match the words perfectly, which I love for this age! Every early childhood classroom needs this book! If you don't win, you definitely need to purchase a copy or ask your librarian to get it for your school library next year.



I will announce the winner on Friday, November 30. Best of luck to each of you!
