Duck! Rabbit!

I told you before...I win things. Waaayyy more than a normal person. Which is why I enter everything. This week has been no exception. I won a big honor, to be revealed later in the week, but today, I got something awesome too.

Amy Krouse Rosenthal is an author who's played a big part in our lives. We own all of her books, and when the Kid was first learning to talk, we would read Little Peaand he would repeat the words back to me. It remains THE bookthat I buy for all new moms.

Well Amy has a new book out called Duck! Rabbit!and was holding a contest - as long as the book stayed on the best seller list she'd call one child for each of those weeks - and we were the lucky chosen ones! Can you believe it!?So Sunday night, my phone rang...and the kids were treated to the one and only Little Pea, as read by the author herself AND she and I read Duck! Rabbit! together!

I was probably more excited than they were, since the kids were wondering whose voice was coming out of the phone - but it was definitely a moment to remember.

I saw Duck Rabbit recently at A Paper Affair in Vestavia Hills, AL. They wanted $22.99 and with 2 1/2 twins i opted out, but would so love the fun book. Maybe I will check Ebay! How fun!

I need to get Em Duck Rabbit. We read Little Pea to her all the time, so thanks again for giving to her. :)

the kids will really love that when they grow up. I'm glad you can love it now:).

my all time gift book is the monster at the end of the book with loveable furry ol' grover. no matter what, giggles guaranteed. and surprisingly no ripped pages.
