New Year Children's Book Giveaway

During the coldest, darkest part of winter, is there anything more satisfying than cuddling up with your youngster for a bedtime book? Regardless of the season, story time has always been one of my favorite parts of parenting… and of childhood. From Dr. Seuss to The Chronicles of Narnia and everything in between, the books I grew up on helped shape who I am. Similarly, I hope the books I read to my son will fill his childhood with happy memories and fill his mind with hopes, dreams, and maybe even a little wisdom.

I want to share my love of reading with you and your kids, so I’m giving away a bunch of new children’s books! Two winners will win three books each (see below for more details), all of which are sure to become classics in their own right!

HOW TO WIN:

Just leave a comment naming your favorite children’s book of all time. It can be your own favorite or that of your child. One entry per person, please.

BONUS WAYS TO WIN:

Visit SuperLunchNotes on Instagram. I’ll be featuring a different character from children’s books every day this week. You can leave a comment each and every day for additional chances to win. Tag a friend in your comment to receive an additional entry!

Contest ends Friday, Jan 19 at midnight. Two (2) winners will be chosen at random and notified by email.

    I have 2 absolute classic favorites – Goodnight Moon and 5 Little Monkeys.

  2. Scott Fassett says:

    My 4 year old’s current favorite it Robo Sauce (it turns into a robot!). My all time favorite from childhood was Go Dog Go.

  3. Tara Clayton says:

    Hard to pick a favorite, but Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day will always have a special place in my heart. However, my daughter never chooses it, so I’m not sure she even likes it. She would probably choose Forever Friends by Carin Berger or one of the Elephant and Piggie books

  4. My favorite is an obscure leveled reader: Monkey-Monkey’s trick. But a current face is Mama Lion wins the race

  5. “Where the Wild Things Are” was always a great one but there was a beginner book called “A Hat for the Queen” that two-year-old me absolutely loved.

  6. Niel Vuolo says:

    My favorite children’s book as a kid was A Light in the Attic by Shel Silverstein. Despite coming out in 81, it still hold up.

  7. Kate says:

    Little Blue Truck
    It’s time to sleep
    Beautiful
