We have books to give away – so, read on!
Each September, Fairytale Town hosts the annual Children’s Scholarshare Book Festival. This two-day event, the largest early childhood literacy program in the Sacramento region, is sponsored by Scholarshare College Savings Program and provides free admission to all visitors throughout the festival. Visitors will enjoy hands-on activities, storytelling performances, as well as readings and presentations from children’s book authors and illustrators.
Headlining this year’s festival is Barney Saltzberg, author and illustrator of Beautiful Oops and his new book Chengdu Could Not, Would Not Fall Asleep. If you aren’t yet familiar with these books, you might be in luck. The folks at Fairytale Town have offered us a set of Saltzberg’s books to give away to one of our lucky readers. Here’s what you need to do to qualify for a chance to win the books. Go to this year’s list of authors and illustrators here, and then leave a comment on this post telling us which of the listed books you would like to hear read aloud by the author, and why. A random drawing will be held on Thursday, Sept. 18, 2014
