Old Bear Book Giveaway

The giveaway winner was comment #16: Jackie H.!

We had so much fun doing our Old Bear seasons craft and now I get the privilege of giving the book to one of my awesome readers.  I don't thank you nearly enough but I so much appreciate you taking the time to leave comments and/or read my posts.

Thank you also to Harper Collins for furnishing the book for this giveaway.  If you missed yesterday's post, one of our favorite books by Kevin Henkes is Old Bear.  It's already snowing when Old Bear settles in his cave, ready to hibernate for the winter. He has a dream that it's spring and he's a cub again. His dream continues through summer, autumn, and winter. When he wakes, it really is spring.
