Spring has Sprung- MAPLE Giveaway!




We are only 13 hours out of winter and... I already feel a lighter spring in my step!   So, I decided to celebrate.  Remember, how I accidentally pre-ordered MAPLE twice?



Well, I am giving away my duplicate copy of this charming book by Lori Nichols!   Just leave a comment to enter.

For a second entry, comment on my Facebook post.

FROM THE PUBLISHER

When Maple is tiny, her parents plant a maple tree in her honor.  She and her tree grow up together, and even though a tree doesn't always make an ideal playmate, it doesn't mind when Maple is in the mood to be loud--- which is often.  Then Maple becomes a big sister, and finds that babies have their loud days, too. Fortunately, Maple and her beloved tree know just what the baby needs.

Winner will be chosen, Sunday, March 23rd at 8:00 PM EST.

Me? I get to be the first? Woo hoo!

I love MAPLE. I bought it for my little niece. It was so hard to give away...I'd love my own copy!

Thanks for your giveaway Corey!

Miranda Paul said...

So ready for spring! Great book feature!

I was hoping to get the maple tree during the give-a-way, but logistically that's imposable, so the book would be the next best thing. Wait! Even better! Thanks for paying it forward.

Ooh, sweet book! Please enter me! (I'm in Italy, but the book would go to someone in the US.) Thank you!

Dawn Young said...

Winning Maple would be a sweet "treet";)
Thanks for the opportunity.

This has been my thought process since you first posted about accidentally ordering two copies of MAPLE: "Oh, it must be good if she ordered two copies!" [one day later] "I should get that book!" [one week later] "There was a thing about a tree?" [three days after that] "Was I supposed to do something?" So I am entering this contest. Since I can't remember to get the book otherwise.

Thanks for the opportunity Corey. Sounds like a charming book.

Oh, me! Pick me! :)

Johnell said...

It looks lovely. If I read it to my kids, will it drive the snow away? Go away snow!

I borrowed the book from the library and thought it was as sweet as maple syrup. Would love to give this book to my little cousin.

I have a copy on order, but would love to win another to give to a local school (plus, that would allow me to read it to a class!).

I saw MAPLE at the book store and didn't have a chance to get it (but took a quick peek). The illustrations are lovely. Thanks for sharing your spare :)

What a darling picture book! Love the concept. Genius

sevenacresky said...

You've been the first to make me aware of this book...back when you said you ordered two. But I too had forgotten to look for it. Would love to own a copy, as a Maple on my garden's edge planted 11 years ago is now a lovely shade tree. Bethany likes me to put her up in it.

Marcie Colleen said...

A little bit of Spring in book form! Love MAPLE and would love a copy!!!

Julia said...

I love that first picture, with her yelling. There's so much personality.

Susanna Leonard Hill said...

I don't have a copy yet and I haven't read it yet, and I have two little granddaughters to share it with, so... HAPPY SPRING! :)

Katy Duffield said...

This book looks adorable! Thanks for the opportunity to win it, ladies. :-)

Angie Karcher said...

My house is surrounded by maple trees but I feel that I need one in my office! = )

Carrie Brown said...

This book is 100% precious and a 5 star rating for me! Although I already have a copy, I know my fellow first grade teachers would love one, too. So, I am entering for them!

Stacy S. Jensen said...

I would love a copy. My library was late in getting this one... Looking forward to reading it. It's on my list.

Cecilia said...

I love Maple syrup and we had a maple in our garden before the fires. My Canadian friend tells me it is less expensive to purchase maple syrup here in oz than when she went home for a holiday. I would love to won a copy of this lovely little book. :)

Michelle Hackel said...

A whole section on my bookshelf is reserved for beautiful season books. I would love to add this one!

My heart is here said...

Oh what a lovely book! Would love this one :)

Hi Corey...would love to own a copy of Maple...it sounds adorable...and 40 years ago, I wrote a draft (even made a dummy) of a story called The Maple Tree (we had 3 huge maples in our front yard and even tapped them and made syrup)...if I'd known what I was doing back then (as opposed to now...when I know at least a little bit), I would have pursued it and gotten it out there. Thanks for hosting the giveaway and offering such a great book!

Donna L Martin said...

Hi Corey!

This sound like such a fun story...crossing fingers...good luck everyone!

Take care,

Donna
