Tell us how you will share the prize of over $200 worth of picture books.

Hmmm…I would read them-just to read them and enjoy them. Then I would pick out my favorites and read them again. Then I would read them to the little ones in my life. Then I would read the ones again that resonated with me and the children the most. Then I would study those books- word by word, thought by thought and savor their beauty.

December 4, 2014 10:23 am

I would give them to my son and his cousins and blog about my favorites.

December 4, 2014 10:25 am

I would wish for good health for my family and friends.

An excellent selection of picture books representing different styles. Nice to see some independent publishers in the mix.

Wowie zowie! Awesome giveaway! If I were to win, I’d read and cherish it/them, and then donate to a very worthy local reading program (SMART).

This is incredible!! What a lovely thing to do. If I were so lucky, I’d share these books with my husband’s niece and nephew and two friends’ kids (and keep a couple for myself). 🙂

Here’s to another great year of Good Reads with Ronna!

If I had a necklace with three wishes, I would wish for a cure for cancer.

My husband and I are in the process of starting our own nonprofit that will provide a free, educational after-school program for local families in need. One of the rooms in our dream building is a book nook, and we are collecting donations now to fill those future shelves. We would be so excited to win this collection of brand new books! Thanks for this chance to win! Happy holidays 🙂

What a generous offer! I would love to donate these books to my son’s classroom. His teacher offers the 1st graders the opportunity to “borrow” books from the class library and, as a result, the library gets smaller and smaller each year. In a school system where the kids move away a lot, I think Bad Bye, Good Bye would be especially welcome. Thanks so much!

December 4, 2014 4:33 pm

I will share them with my colleagues at Kingsborough Elementary School!

December 4, 2014 4:45 pm

If I had a necklace that gave me three wishes, I would wish I would ask for new furniture for my elementary school.

December 4, 2014 5:42 pm

I will share them with the local school

December 4, 2014 5:44 pm

that my grandfather would be able to walk better again

December 4, 2014 7:17 pm

I can share them with other teachers at our school

December 4, 2014 8:06 pm

What an amazing giveaway! My children would be thrilled to receive a box full of books to read over and over again! We are family of readers, so that’s how I would share… by reading with my children and sharing my love of reading 🙂

I would chose 1 or 2 for my grandchildren then donate the rest to St.Vincent de Paul. They give to people who are down on their luck and also run a food pantry. I have seen a lot of good work there.

I think that this prize is awesome first of all and my kids would like to win so that they could share with others. We work with a charity called Cheerful Givers and when we have something extra we always try and share. So, we have been wanting to put another birthday blitz together for about 5 to 10 families. Each bag that you make with Cheerful Givers must have at least ten brand new toys, books, candy, gum or something new inside. So if we do at least five bags we can donate them to a homeless shelter or… Read more »

If I were fortunate enough to win this amazing collection of books I would share first with my grandson whom I care for. I would pass them along to my local town library which is always looking for ways to stretch their budget. The library hosts reading programs for preschoolers all year and is used by the town graded school as their library too.

Some of these books I’ve been wanting FOREVER but were sold out or I was short on cash when they came back in stock, or were REALLY hard to find, and I’d love to do more giveaways on T.A.A. and winning these books would really help.

December 5, 2014 8:43 am

My three girls will go crazy if we win these books. They will be thrilled to pieces. They are major book addicts!

December 5, 2014 8:54 am

December 5, 2014 12:34 pm

What a wonderful collection of picture books! I will read them all, and then proceed to share them with with the children in my community.

December 5, 2014 1:57 pm

Our local library has a summer reading program that these would be perfect for. Thanks for the chance to get more kids reading.

December 5, 2014 2:00 pm

How about that people would be kind to each other?

December 5, 2014 9:32 pm
