Team Give-Away

How about we take a few moments out of our busiest season for a bit of fun?

Fellow-ambassador Tricia Santos and I had the pleasure of hosting Rebecca Guay and Burleigh Muten for an author/illustrator-signing. Generous and gracious - everyone loved meeting them.

Can you believe Rebecca Guay sketched her signature? This beauty has been sitting on my shelf waiting for a proper home.

If you haven't seen this Barefoot book, it is an illuminated dictionary portraying the thoughts and ideas of other minds and cultures. Rebecca revealed that she took a bit of criticism after the books release for the cover-design of a blond-haired, blue-eyed goddess. Hmmm. I love those little tidbits. I also love Rebecca's other book with Barefoot, The Barefoot Book of Ballet Stories.

Look, Burleigh signed the book as well!

Burleigh has published four books with Barefoot. Burleigh's book, Grandmothers' Stories has always been a best-seller for me. When asked whom she would like to narrate the book, top on her list was Olympia Dukakis and it was also top on Barefoot's list. Aren't we thrilled Ms. Dukakis agreed?

So, how do I win the book, Richele?!?

Leave a comment (sorry, this give-away is just for my beloved team but still feel free to comment) and tell me anything. Ask a question, tell me your thoughts regarding the book, the author, the illustrator, what you would do with the book, what you are up to at the moment...you get the picture. This will be a random chance drawing and will end October 31st.
