Giveaway Results: 3 Copies of Twimericks Book for Children


Sorry! This giveaway is now closed! We would like to congratulate our 3 winners- Commenter #8, #9, & #24 on winning this book! Happy Holidays!

Twimericks by Lou Brooks is a book that you are going to want to add to your bookshelves this year and I am looking forward to sharing three copies of this book with our readers.

I received this book as a sample copy to review, but I know that this will be a fast favorite in our household. Our son is in first grade and loves telling jokes, tongue twisters, and riddles. If you have a child like that in your house, then this book is for them!

Twimericks are what happens when tongue twisters crash into limericks. It is an adorable book that will be perfect for a long car trip or read aloud and passed around at your child’s birthday party.

The illustrations are deliciously old-fashioned and funny which make this book already look like an instant classic. Don’t forget to put your name in the cover where it says, This Beak BooLongs To…” Seriously hilarious and highly addictive, this book is perfect for children and adults alike!

Today we are giving away three books to three lucky readers. To enter this giveaway, tell me why you should have this book wrapped under your Christmas tree this year!  Entries will be taken through Tuesday (12/01) at 8PM EST. Our winner will be drawn at random. Good luck, everyone!
