The Children’s Book Review has turned three. Yep, that’s right. Three!

A year’s worth of thanks go to Luisa LaFleur, Phoebe Vreeland, Tina Vasquez, and Erik Schulze, for their extremely helpful contributions during 2010. A big thank you also goes to all of the amazingly talented authors and illustrators who gave us their time for some very fun interviews.

And … it certainly wouldn’t be a party without presents! The best part about TCBR’s birthday celebration is that you can have the presents. Well … at least one of you can. To say thank you and to giveback to our supporting readers, The Children’s Book Review is giving $300 worth of children’s books to one lucky reader—the winner even gets to pick the age range(s)/reading level(s) of the books.

But wait, there’s more! The super cool people over at Scholastic have given us five awesome books to add to the package: 1) The Dreamer by Pam Muñoz Ryan, winner of the Pura Belpre Award (2011). 2) Newbery Honor Book Rules by Cynthia Lord. 3)  The Babysitters Club: The Summer Before by award-winning author Ann M. Martin. 4) Bestselling Too Many Toys by David Shannon. 5) Clifford the Champion by Norman Bridwell, who has over 44 million copies of his books in print. Did I mention that all of these books have been signed? The value: Priceless!

  • Happy Birthday to the Children’s Book Review. As a mum of four boys who LOVE reading (their biggest ‘consequence’ would be to miss out on stories at night!) this amazing ‘birthday present giveaway’ sounds just amazing. (hmmm, seems like it should be the other way round with you guys getting the pressies though!)
    I’m a New Zealander (but with a US postal address via my uncle) so would be thrilled if you could put me in your draw! Cheers Sarah

  • Happy Birthday and How Exciting! My birthday is April 19th and my class knows there would be no better present for me than a collection of books for our class! I went back to college after 20 years to finish my degree so that I could make my dream of teaching come true…and it did. This is my 2nd year teaching 5th graders and I love it!….especially since I teach language arts ,so we get to do a LOT of reading. These books would be a wonderful addition to our class library.
