My Gift to Teachers

I've been on a purge-bender recently, getting rid of STUFF in my office.

Now I've decided to downsize my stash of my books.

What better way to do it than give some to a teacher or school librarian?


Are you a teacher or school librarian?

Want some of my books?

Thirteen books: 11 of them hardcover; 4 of them biographies; most appropriate for grades 3-6
 Here's how:

Just post your name, email address, and the name of your school in the comments section of this blog post (or email them to me at barbaraoconnor at mac dot com).

I'll draw a winner on Friday, November 21. 

And if you don't win, don't worry. I plan to have more drawings in the near future.
