Here's what I chose

A couple of weeks ago, I told you that, as a Day 5 Giveaway Winner during Armchair BEA, I was to choose from a huge list of giveaways, which I had narrowed down to seven books.  I have now received my prize and want to tell you what I got.  All of the books in that post were among my choices, but the first three were a package deal.  And that's what I received.  These three children's books arrived in yesterday's mail:

Seeds of Change: Planting a Path to Peace ~ by Jen Cullerton Johnson, 2010, biography (Wangari Maathai, Kenya)

Bird ~ by Zetta Elliott, 2008, children's

Yummy: The Last Days of a Southside Shorty ~ by G. Neri, 2010, graphic novel (Illinois)

The only one I know is Yummy, which I found to be quite powerful. I hope you like it

Oh, I loved all of these.

There are a few picture book bios on Wangari Maathai but Seeds of Change is my favorite. It has so much information in it.

Bird was selected this year as West Virginia Children's Choice Book Award.

And Yummy is a book that lives up to the hype

Much congrats on the win and enjoy the books.
