  1. My children’s favorite pick would be Once Upon a Parsnip. They like to see the new story about Little Red, Mr. wolf and Three Little pigs.

  2. My children would love to check out all new books, and their favorite pick would be Once Upon a Parsnip. They love to see the new story about Little Red, Mr. Wolf and Three Little Pigs. They also like the partnership among Barbara, Kevin and Ben.

  3. Honestly, all of those books are new to us! We’ll need to check them out from the library! But if I know my kids, Ellie would love Cat in the Night – she’s crazy for cats!

    • Congratulation Kate N! You are the winner of the Fairytale Town ScholarShare Book Festival package. Please contact us to claim your prize. Thank you!

  4. I have twins that are 3 years old and they love a Sister More Like Me because of their special bond as sisters 🙂 My one girl wears her Elsa dress around the house constantly and bows like a princess!!! They are very much into books, and the Disney magic is like none other. Can’t wait to bring them to the festival to experience the magic in person!! Thank you!!!

  5. Our little girl’s favorite book is Frozen: A Sister More Like Me. She LOVES the movie Frozen, and really admires Anna and Elsa. She is a little young at the moment, but as she gets older, she will understand and appreciate the story as much or more than the beautiful illustrations 🙂

    Thank you for hosting the Scholarshare Children’s Book Festival giveaway. This Festival is an awesome annual community event!

    Good Luck Everyone!

  6. Hi! Both of my daughters LOVE A Sister More Like Me that was a gift at my baby shower. The interesting thing is there is a huge age gap between them. My older daughter, like many other kids, knows that movie by heart so naturally she loves this book. My one year old loves this book for the amazing illustrations. I would love to take them!
