The Peddler is jumping for joy because it’s a brand new year, full of possibilities. It’s also a year full of giveaways! I’ll be giving away a prize each month to folks who comment on a post–any post–during the course of the month. Winners will be chosen at random and announced on the blog. Subscribing to Frog on a Blog is recommended (though not required) to keep track of posts and to see if you’ve won.

Those who share a post, will get an extra chance to win that month’s prize. Prizes will consist of picture books, picture book critiques from me, a set of pilot’s pens (Night Writer–for writing in the dark), and other fun picture book or writing related stuff.

To kick things off, for January, I’m giving away a signed copy of my book The Peddler’s Bed. All you have to do is comment on any post this month (including this one). If you share the post, you’ll get an extra chance to win. If you comment on or share more than one post during the month, you’ll get one extra chance to win as well. To make it as fair as possible, if you win for one month, you will not be eligible to win again. But feel free to leave comments anyway.This is my first time offering a year-long giveaway. If all goes well, I may do it again next year.

Important: If you share a post, please remember to tag me or let me know in the comments that you shared.

*Due to contest/sweepstakes regulations in other countries, this giveaway is available to U.S. residents only. I’m very sorry fans and followers from other nations. I still appreciate you!

For everyone out there who already has a copy of The Peddler’s Bed, I have free autographed bookplates to give away. Just use my Contact form and leave your name, address, and how you’d like the bookplate signed (to whom), and I’ll pop it in the mail to you asap.

PEARLA AND HER UNPREDICTABLY PERFECT DAY

by

Rochel Lieberman

30746488

  • Title – Pearla and Her Unpredictably Perfect Day
  • Author – Rochel Lieberman
  • Illustrator – Lloyd Jones
  • Publisher – Jessica Kingsley Publishers
  • Release Date – December 21, 2016
  • Format – 40 pages hardcover, includes guide for parents and discussion questions
  • Summary
    Pearla loves to bake! Her favourite foods are cookies and cupcakes, which she sells at her dad’s bakery. She always tries very hard to make her baking absolutely perfect, but one day Pearla is so busy that she makes a huge mistake! Have fun with Pearla as she learns how to adapt when her day doesn’t go to plan and realises it could turn out to be pretty perfect after all.

This is a scrumptious tale for children aged 4-12, particularly those who experience anxiety or developmental issues. It demonstrates that you can’t succeed unless you try and that it’s ok to make mistakes. Pearla’s strategies for solving her problems will help children to overcome their own hurdles.
