Summer Reading Giveaway

We are SO excited about our giveaway package! Nat and I both love reading with our kids, and we frequent the library A LOT. In the summertime, one of our favorite things is the Summer Reading Program at the local library. The kids love going to the library each week, checking out new books, and earning prizes. We thought it would be fun to put together a package that will help your kids get excited about reading this summer! Here’s what you’ll win:

  • Some of our favorite children’s books for every age: There is a Bird on Your Head by Mo Willems, Henry and Mudge (beginning reader) by Cynthia Rylant, The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein, and Sky Raiders by Brandon Muhl (a new series by my son’s favorite author)
  • $20 gift card to Barnes & Noble
  • Custom tote bag by Pink Parlor Designs, so you can hit the library in style!
  • “Fort-in-a-Bag” Kit by JuBug, for your kids to create their own secret reading getaway!
  • Summer Reading Bingo Printables
  • Total Package Value: $125

Amazing, right?? Wait until you see the details:

My favorite part of our giveaway is this adorable, creativity-inspiring, summer boredom buster…. Fort Kit in a bag!

These custom creations are made by Julie at JuBug, and you can choose from the Fort Kits she has listed in her shop or order something custom for your child. My boys have a Vintage Star Wars kit, and they are OBSESSED!

How cute is that label? Each kit comes with a large kit bag and fabric label, 2 twin sheets (each with 6 fabric ties), mini LED flashlight, 3 clamps, 12 clothes pins, 6 suction cups, and a 10′ Rope. My 6-year-old has pretty much claimed this as his own, and he loves building forts and keeping his little sister out!

    Your package totally caught my eye! Obviously, I’m ObSEUSSed with children’s books. We love Brandon Mull too and my kids got a few of his books signed at ComicCon. I can think of tons of places my kids would use that fort.
