Before a book is published in hard cover it goes out in soft-covered proofs to reviewers. We call them ARCs. And wouldn't you like to have a whole classroom set of such a treasure?
You can win a set of this book!
Here's how, as described by author Fran Slayton.
If you are a teacher or librarian who would like a chance to win 30 advance copies of When the Whistle Blows for your classroom or library, then sign up to receive my monthly Children's Book News Email here. The winner will be chosen from a list of subscribers in December, 2009.
If you are not a teacher or librarian, you can still sign up to receive my Children's Book News Email - just sign up here.
Meanwhile, I hope you'll check out my latest Children's Book News Email at http://hosted.verticalresponse.com/272224/e0a6efbb65/TEST/TEST/
It's a one page summary of links to news articles related to children's books, children's literacy, book marketing, author interviews, conference information and more! I hope you enjoy it! Let me know what you think!
I, for one, am anxious to get my hands on this book!
