  • Giveaway: If You Take a Mouse to the Movies

    I couldn’t pass up the chance to participate in the Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival, so I’m giving away a copy of the paperback version of Laura Numeroff’s book, If You Take a Mouse to the Movies.

    We first discovered Laura Numeroff’s “If you” series last year, when a friend gave us a copy of If You Give a Moose a Muffin. We loved it so much, we purchased If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.

    The story in all of these books is delightfully silly, and the illustrations are entertaining, so I’m sure you’ll have fun reading If You Take a Mouse to the Movies with your child(ren). It’s recommended for ages 4 through 8, but if it’s like the other “If you” books, even a 2-year-old can enjoy it. (We just got our own copy and haven’t read it yet.)

    To enter this giveaway, simply fill out the form below. (If you’re reading this in a feed aggregator or email, you’ll need to click through to the post to reach the form.)

    For an additional entry, subscribe to my feed via RSS or email and fill out the form again to let me know you’ve done so.

    For a third entry, spread the word about this contest – tell a friend or write about it on your own blog. Then let me know about it by filling out the form again.

    You can enter up to three times (one for each type), and you must submit separate entries for each type. I’ll select the winner using Random.org and announce them here on CFO as well as contact them by email. The winner will have 48 hours to send me their address, otherwise their prize will be forfeited and a new winner will be selected.

    The giveaway ends at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 5. Sorry, this giveaway is open only to residents of the U.S. and Canada.

    And if this is your first time visiting Chief Family Officer, please stay a few moments and have a look around. I post daily on family finances, parenting and cooking. A good place to start is the Best of CFO, where you’ll find posts on my best financial move of 2007, a how-to on making Cookie Monster Cupcakes, and a rundown on techniques for making baby food. If you like what you see here, why not subscribe to new posts via RSS or email? You’ll get the latest on CFO delivered right to your inbox or favorite feed aggregator. Thanks for stopping by, and good luck!

      My daughter absolutely loves If You Give a Mouse a Cookie! She’s always begging for the “cookie book”. If the other “If you” books are as good as the “cookie book”, I can heartily recommend them as well!
