Children's Literature Contest

My very creative son, Jeremy,
made me coasters for Christmas
that he knew would put a smile on
my face each time I use them.

Now, I am going to allow
you to join in the fun
by guessing what children's books
the coasters represent.

Be the first to get all 5
correct without using Google
and you will win, either a 
picture book or one of the
professional books that I have
written for using Children's
Literature to teach 
reading and writing skills.
YOUR CHOICE.
I will mail the book
to the winner.
(USA winners only--Sorry!)

You must leave
your answers in the comment
section of this blog
(not on FaceBook).

Ready, Set, Go!

#1


#2


#3


#4


#5

A winner (along with the correct answers)
will be posted in the blog comments
of this post on Wednesday,
January 15th, 2014, so don't
forget to check back.

Ooooo! Number 3 is hard. I really don't have a clue, but I am going to throw out a complete guess of "The witch of Blackbird pond." That is not the cover of my very recently purchased copy of that book, but I am going to guess it anyway. If I am correct on number 3 I can tell you the rest of the titles. :-)

Jeremy did great on his gift giving!

Since we have a winner, I will post the answers early.
Busy Mom, I need your name and home address so I can send you a prize. You can either have CRASH BANG BOOM, or IF YOU GIVE A TEACHER A BOOK, or a Children's book of my choice. You can send your address to me through FB since I think we are friends there. I have narrowed you down to 2 former UHCL students who used to be Music Teachers but I'm not sure if I am correct.

#1 Make Way for Ducklings
#2 Where the Wild Things Are
#3 The Witch of Blackbird Pond
#4 Winnie the Pooh
#5 Charlotte's Web

And yes, Busy Mom, you have a great memory. Charlotte's Web is one of my favorite books. #3 The Witch of Blackbird Pond is also.

Thanks to all who played.

I'm just seeing this post for the 1st time but I recognized them all! Since I'm also a former UHCL student of yours that must say something about you as a teacher! I would love to have some like that for my library.
