I am so excited for my first Giveaway! I have been torn for the last week between doing a digital “gift” and an actual one. I don’t know about you but I LOVE getting a letter or a package in the mail. I thought there might be others out there that feel the same excitement at the thought of an unexpected gift arriving in the mailbox.
Once I decided on a real giveaway I had to find the perfect thing. Since I live in Switzerland I wanted to give away something from here. I also wanted it to be something a teacher would love.
Here it is. (There is a choice of two books depending on the grade level you would prefer)
The two books are both classics from my childhood.
The first is A Bell For Ursli by Selina Chonz and Alois Carigiet. It is a picture book from the Engadine region of Switzerland (the Alps).
It has been translated into English and I still have the original version in German from my childhood. I love this story!!!
The second book is a chapter book by Otfried Preussler. He was born in Czechoslovakia and the book has also been translated into English. This is a GREAT book for ESL/ELL kids because it helps with English language acquisition. It has certain words bolded and includes definitions at the end of the chapter. The story is lovely and I remember it fondly to this day.
Both books are amazing!! They are brand new (new car smell) and ready for a home in your awesome class library.
Last, but certainly not least, the chocolate. I'm sending along a variety of swiss chocs including the two in the picture. Just thought they were cute because they are wrapped like swiss army knives. =
So...how do you enter (WIN) this fabulous giveaway??
