HGG-Christmas/Winter Giveaway, Canada Only, Ends Dec. 10/16

Recently I received two lovely books from Raincoast. My two grandchildren love to read and have a lot of books at home as well as here in our home. We keep a tote full of books for them when they come over and as soon as they come in, they head to the tote and choose their books and then they sit down and read stories for us. My son said they are constantly reading which is a good thing.
The books I received are the same two that our winner will receive and they are:

and the second one is Waiting for Snow by Marsha Diane Arnold, illustrated by Renata Liwska Badger cannot wait one more minute for it to snow. When his friend Hedgehog explains that everything comes in its time, Badger is as unconvinced and impatient as ever. But Badger's friends have a few tricks up their sleeve to try to get the snow's attention and distract their pal in the meantime. In the end, Badger sees there's no trick-only waiting until at last, it's time.
Quiet, charming, and just plain fun. Kiddos eager for the changing of seasons will easily find kinship among these antsy woodland creatures in this engaging story perfect for a winter-themed story time." -Booklist
"Delicate pencil lines show scenes as simultaneously earnest and funny. Snow can't be forced, but this will help ease the wait." -Kirkus
