#PlayTestShare Giveaway-Canada Only-March 17/16

Today we have a giveaway sponsored by @RaincoastBooks. Their books, games and puzzles are all fantastic. My grandchildren love to read and we have a good supply of books here for them when they come to visit. Take a look at the blog from @RaincoastBooks http://www.raincoast.com/blog/
There are many to choose from @RaincoastBooks such as:





I received the Paper Sumo and the 642 Things to Draw. I know the grandchildren will love these. The Paper Sumo: Japan's centuries-old national sport is the main attraction in this paper-based smackdown where creativity and competition collide. The result? Laughs guaranteed! There is an impressive assortment of 39 characters-from traditional sumo wrestlers to animals to monsters and other eye-catching creatures from Japanese lore.
642 Things to Draw: Young Artist's Edition
The perfect addition to the 642 series, this collection of hilarious, wacky, and imaginative drawing prompts provides endless quirky inspiration for young artists of all experience levels. Whether pondering how to sketch a zombie unicorn or filling the page with a magical field of cupcakes, budding artists will relish the chance to jump-start their artistic engines as they draw, sketch, imagine, and create!
We just had two little visitors and they are enjoying the game and the book.
The others from @RaincoastBooks are great too.
