  1. I love books on any subject or grade level. There is always a child that wants to own a book and I loving providing it.
    I love the attention given to teaching young people about animals and our environment. The future rest with them.

  2. I think fairies are fun, so The Bernadette Watts Stories and Fairy Tales Collection would be appropriate.

  3. You always have such great resources of contests that it makes it hard for me to choose just one. However most times some of the contest rewards are above my preschool level area so I don’t enter those contests. We need more areas for our early childhood teachers. Thanks, yours in education, Susan

  4. I really liked your Social Studies weekly contest. At my school we have a really outdated social studies book and getting the chance to win a more current way to teach my students material that they need to know is great.
