Crinkle, Crunch, and Crack Your Way to Freebies and More—Win Two Books!

Crinkle, crunch, crack! Is that how it sounds when you step outdoors on the frozen, wintry ground? Well take a few more steps forward—spring is not that far away and I, for one, am ready to welcome it with free resources and chances to win books, cash, and more!


Submit a comment to the blog by 11:59 pm EDT Sunday, March 14, 2015, to tell me which of the contests and freebies below are your favorites. One lucky teacher will win these books that will encourage your students to explore outdoors! In Crinkle, Crackle, Crack: It’s Spring!, a child follows a bear through cold mud, rotten snow, and shivering trees to discover spring. (I love the use of adjectives and onomatopoeia in this book!) Then, in Welcome to the Neighborwood, pop-up pages show how seven animal builders use their unique skills to survive.  (Update:  congratulations to Tina, who is the winner of our prize.)

  1. I like the spring books. I am looking for some new books to read to my preschoolers and those may be just what I need.

  2. A million thanks to Disney Publishing for the Heroes, Princesses, and Pigeons and this contest for the special books and chance to get them into classrooms! My kindergarteners and I look forward to reading new books and we learn so much each time! Inspiring a love of reading while developing endless important skills is that Disney magic in action!
