One lucky teacher will win this trio of not too spooky books—just in time for Halloween! In Little Boo, one tiny pumpkin seed tries to be scary, but he doesn’t scare anyone. Then you can count on the frights in Not Very Scary when Melly realizes she’s being followed by one coal-black cat all the way to ten vexing vultures. A flip feature in The Monsterator lets readers create their own monsters, just like Master Edgar Dreadbury does with his Monsterator machine.

  1. It is hard to choose a favorite! I think the little ones in my classes would love the idea of being Animal Ambassadors best. Thank you for a chance to win the books!

  2. Love all three of the books. I love books that incorporate math, also I think the boys would love to make their own monsters, we could incorporate this with science.

  3. I love Office Depot Office Max. We always need help with organization in Preschool. All your offers are always great. Have a Happy Halloween!

  4. I signed up for the Animal Ambassador program. It looks like a great way to integrate all kinds of content with a high interest topic! Third graders will love it! I also like the component of environmental literacy and global impact.

  5. I liked “Not Very Scary” It’s still early in the year, still getting to learn my first grade students. This book celebrates the season and is a safe read at school.

    I appreciate the opportunity to win books for my class.

  6. Oh my goodness, I have to say the IFAW offer for the 500.00 to Amazon makes me tickled pink! I would love to win that…just thinking of all of the wonderful things I could buy for my classroom makes me so excited!

  7. The gift card would be great to buy things for my class. I love the IFAW materials they are great too.
    The Office Depot gift card would be great too!!
