  1. I would love to win the LeapFrog prize pack! A wonderful way to promote literacy. Most families are familiar with LeapFrog products; utilizing the products in centers and via classroom Lending Library will allow me to reach all learners and encourage parents to invest in LeapFrog products who we’re considering, but hesitant to purchase.

  2. I purchased and read Shel Silverstein books for my oldest when he was young (he is now 21) and read to my second son when he was very young. Both boys enjoyed reading his books on their own!!!

  3. I am the biggest Shel Silverstein fan on the planet! I know a ridiculous number of his poems by heart so I can share with kids at will. 🙂

  4. I love the book- call me old school but i love just books. Interactive stuff is great but there is nothing like a book in a child’s hands.

  5. There’s not one of Shel Silverstein’s pieces that I don’t love; however, this is one of his texts that I don’t own. The wonderful thing about his writings is that they are loved and appreciated by all age groups, so I can use them with various students in a mulltitude of lessons.

  6. How would seeing a book about wanting a cheap rhino not catch my eye? Of course, winning the leapfrog package would be fabulous. It isn’t a rhino though.

  7. Shel’s book tops my list. 50th anniversary books are hard to find and obtain. Leap stuff is awesome in any classroom. Common Core help is always a plus in any classroom. All are super duper cool and would definitely be a plus in my classroom.

  8. It’s hard to choose! I love them all and I would love to win the 50th Anniversary Edition of Who wants a cheap Rhinoceros?

  9. Who wouldn’t want to read Who Wants a Cheap Rhinoceros? to their class. As for the rest of the opportunities, I have held a class for recycling or upcycling used clothes. We made purses and pillow case out of the children’s tee shirts.

  10. I would love this book. My students love that we read to them everyday and we encourage them to read for themselves and to write stories. It is fun for them to see other authors stories. My husband just lost his job so my funds are limited and any help that can be given to my class right now would be helpful.
    Thank you.

  11. My students love Shel Silverstein’s books and I would love to add this one to my library’s collection.

  12. I teach fifth grade and just introduced my students to the incredible world of Shel Silverstein. They are in love! We would have a blast with “Who Wants a Cheap Rhinoceros?” Thank you!- Kelly (Baltimore, MD)

  13. Always looking for new preschool books this would be great. As you know a preschool teacher buys a lot of her own books and supplies. A great free book would be great!
    Thank you.
