  1. The citrus and farm food sites are great- I love any opportunity to teach my kids about healthy eating and nutrition. Thank you!

  2. Love the illustrations. How cool.
    Walmart contest yes. and The Alliance to Feed the Hungry. I am always looking for ways to teach my kiddos about food production.

  3. I love the pictures in this book. I can’t wait to share it with my students. Thank you for the opportunity to win a free iPad or Wal-Mart gift card. Both contests were easy to enter.

  4. How does a mummy pay bills? The boys I work with would surely enjoy finding the answer to this and the other questions they may have about Halloween.

  5. I love any contests that help out teachers, but I really liked the Alliance to Feed the Future contest. Many of our students really need the guidance to make better eating choices, and the earlier you catch them, the better!

  6. I love reading Halloween books to my students. I am always looking for new books. Working Mummies sounds like it would be something my students could really connect with.

  7. This looks incredibly adorable! I am always looking for new books to fill my very empty first grade library! First year first grade teacher could really use suggestions:)

  8. The students at our little school in rural West Virginia would LOVE to see this new book!! Our small library shelf of used books is Nowhere close to to being full, and I KNOW for a fact Working Mummies would become an INSTANT favorite!!! Fingers crossed to win a copy for our well-deserving kiddos!!

  9. We would love to win any of the prizes. I work at a new elementary school that is currently working diligently to fill our book shelves. This book would be a wonderful addition.
