I had over 100 entries for my giveaway for 'One Word Pearl' and the winner is Bobbi Miller! Congrats to you! ONE WORD PEARL
and I'm celebrating with a MEGA giveaway!
Pearl loves words. All kinds of words. Words make up songs, stories, poems . . . and what does a lover of words do? She collects them, of course!
But one day, most of Pearl’s words are blown away, leaving her only a few which she keeps safely in her treasure chest. After that day, she uses each word carefully—one at a time, until she has no words left. When her teacher asks her questions at school, she doesn’t answer. When her friend wants to know what she has for lunch, she can’t respond. What will Pearl do without her precious words? Will she ever find them?
One Word Pearlexplores the power of words to transform, inspire, and cultivate imagination. This whimsical story is the winner of the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP) Children’s Book Competition in the Picture Book category.
Here's what you could win: Signed and personalised copy of 'One Word Pearl' Original signed sketch from the book. One Word pearl poster AND I will change the words to whatever you would like! Signed postcard.
