ENDED: Win 1 of 2 sets of great new children's books!

Enter to win a set (two are being given away) of these three wonderful new children's books!

Hammond’s GLOBES IN A BOX ($19.99; ISBN: 9780843718256)
Children are used to learning about Earth flattened on a page, but with Globes in a Box children ages 10 and up can craft their very own model of the world. With a four-inch plastic globe, kids can choose from among 67 different projections to paste on top of their blank globe. Also, included are comprehensive instructions as well as intriguing information about how maps are created and who creates them. With Globes in a Box, kids become the cartographer and see what Earth truly looks like.

67 different physical and political maps
Try fun projects like making “origami” globes using specially designed geodesic templates
Learn about the discoveries and inventions that have transformed modern mapmaking

Hammond’s BOOK OF THE PRESIDENTS ($19.99; ISBN: 9780843718485)
Which president had a faithful dog named Fala? Which president’s children smuggled a pony into a White House elevator? Find the answers to these—and many more—questions in Book of Presidents, a fun and fascinating overview of the leaders of the United States from the nation’s founding father to the present day, including the newly elected President Barack Obama.

Teddy Bears & Peanut Soup: A Presidential Trivia and Fact Book
Hundreds of fascinating facts, tantalizing trivia, and surprising stories about every President from Washington to Obama—including Theodore Roosevelt’s Teddy Bear and Rosalynn Carter’s Peanut Soup—with full color photos and illustrations. Each president is presented with a full-color photo, brief stats, and lots of entertaining information.

To enter this giveaway, simply post a reply here and remember to watch your inbox because the winner will be announced here. MAKE SURE you have email notification checked. If the winner doesn't respond within 7 days of being posted here, remaining copies will be donated to charity.

Love & Prayers,
May God give you for every storm, a rainbow, for every tear, a smile, for every care, a promise, and blessing in each trial, for every problem life sends, a faithful friend to share, for every sigh, a sweet song, and an answer for each prayer.
