Contests and Giveaways | August 2015

Each month we feature free and enjoyable book contests and giveaways! We hope you will enjoy the following opportunities as well as the author and book resources available via TeachingBooks.net.

 

Win a free copy of Vincent Paints His House (Elementary)

Vincent is ready to paint his house. The only problem is choosing the color. He thinks white would be nice . . . until the spider convinces him that red is better. Red looks great, but the bird thinks blue would be best. Before long, Vincent has a list of requests: the termite wants orange, the caterpillar loves yellow, and the ladybug insists on purple. With a little creativity—and a lot of color—Vincent does a brilliant job!
