Picture Book Giveaway: The Museum!


Today's a special day for me in the blogosphere. I'm organizing a monthly blog series for the Library as Incubator Project, and today's the first post! The series is called "Book to Boogie," and it's all about pairing picture books with dance and movement activities for library story time. The bloggers besides myself who are participating in the series are Jayne Gammons, Maria Hanley, Jill Homan Randall, Amy Seto Musser, and Liz Vacco. I'm so excited!!

To celebrate the launch of the series, I'm giving away a copy of the first book we're highlighting -- The Museum -- signed by debut author Susan Verde! To enter the giveaway, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post by 11:59 EST on Wednesday, June 18th, and I'll use random.org to pick a winner.

Although it's not required, I do hope you will stop by the Library as Incubator Project to learn more about The Museum and ideas for incorporating it into movement-based story time. It's a delightful book in so many ways, including its art and movement themes and its gorgeous illustrations by Peter H. Reynolds.

Good luck, and thanks for celebrating with me!

  3. My dance students learn movement concepts when I use picture books. It is a natural connection.

  4. Oh, this book sounds fantastic! I love the idea of showing children that feelings can be expressed by movement. And Peter Reynolds illustrations are always great. Look forward to seeing this one. :)

    1. Hi, Wendy. Thanks so much for introducing yourself! I'm following Move with Me Action Adventures on Facebook, and that was so sweet of Leah Kalish to send my link to you. And yes, I do know Angela. I agree she is a fabulous connector! If you or Leah ever have a blog post related to picture books and movement, I also do a monthly roundup related to that. It's called the Read & Romp Roundup, so I hope you'll look for it. I just posted the May roundup and plan to put out the call for submissions to the June roundup, too. I also have two girls -- ages 6 and 8 -- so we have that in common, too!
