Children's Books Giveaway

I've gotten some beautiful copies of children's books from the class I help teach in the summer, but this also means I have some duplicate copies. All books are like new or lightly used. If you know a young person who would really enjoy one of these classics, leave a comment with your answer to the question, which book you are interested in, and your email address. Sorry, I am only willing to send within the continental United States. Winners will be chosen randomly. Entries will be accepted until Nov. 1 and winners will be announced in November. Covers are as pictured!

Question: What was your favorite book as a child?

My Answer: I think I've already answered this or a similar question. My favorite book from childhood was A Wrinkle In Time by Madeleine L'Engle, closely followed by The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis and all the Chronicles of Narnia, the Anne of Green Gables books by L.M. Montgomery, and Little Women and its sequels by Louisa May Alcott. The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien were my favorite from about seventh grade on. Now that I think about it, these books also probably have the biggest impact on how I think about the world and the kind of books I want to write someday.
