I am going to share a fun fact that will shock few people: I LOVE GIVING AWAY BOOKS. I give away at least one book on this blog every week, and I give away multiple books (advanced reader copies, F&Gs, final copies) to my students every week. The act of giving away a book fills my soul with warm, fuzzy feelings. From where I'm sitting right now, I can see a good-sized stack of picture books and novels (mostly signed) that I'll give to my nieces the next time I see them.
I am, as Molly Idle would say, "tickled pink" that Chronicle Kids invited me to participate in the #GiveBooks blog tour. One day in the near future, the winner of my #GiveBooks Giveaway will arrive home to the following illustrated books on their front porch.
