UPDATE: Congratulations to the winner, Teacherpippi!
Just a short break from my Grace in Our Time of Need series for something a little lighter... (I've never had a giveaway before!)
So, do you like chocolate?
Do you like adorable characters in your children's early readers?
Marie Rippel, the author of All About Spelling has published her new Beehive Reader 1 with gorgeous illustrations by artists Dave LaTulippe and Donna Goeddaeus. The reader is SO cute! (Even my 12 yo son thinks kids and parents will enjoy it--he asked if he could read it while he was waiting to use the computer. About page 70 he said, "This is really nice, parents are really going to like this for their kids. It's a good book to snuggle with. And it's a lot better than what I had to learn to read with!")
(Cobweb the Cat thinks so too).
So, what does this have to do with chocolate?
One of the illustrators (Donna Goeddaeus) is a chocolatier. She does all the artwork for her chocolates (and if you like horses, you'll want to check out her site!).
Anyway...Marie has donated a Beehive Reader 1 AND the above-pictured box of chocolates as a giveaway! These chocolates are hand made with rich, creamy European Chocolate. And the little bunny you see in the center is solid hand molded milk chocolate.
Here's a close-up of the picture on the lid:
