Winter Giveaway

The holiday season is one of my favorite times of the year. For me, it starts with Thanksgiving, builds up to Christmas, ends with the new year. As an extra bonus, I get to celebrate my anniversary between Christmas and the new year! But after the new year, it seems like winter just drags on. And on. There’s less sunshine, more snow, and it’s always freezing cold. Of course we’ve got Valentine’s Day to look forward to (and so do your kiddos, if you’re getting our January/Valentine’s-themed box!), but after that, I just want spring to come.

I live in Utah, so you’d think I love snow. During the winter, people come from all over to ski or snowboard the fresh white powder in Utah. But the difference is that I don’t get to pack up and leave when I’m done enjoying the snow. Long after the delight of waking up to pretty snow-covered pines and undisturbed fields of white has worn off, I’m left to trudge through snow in three layers and a coat. And the air is SO cold.

Now that I’m done complaining about the snow, guess what surprise came in the mail to me this winter that made me a little happier about the snow? A box showed up on my treacherous, ice-laced doorstep, and when I dug in I found a new book by the award-winning, New York Times best-selling author and illustrator, Claudia Rueda called Bunny Slopes.Β Along with the book was the cutest Bunny Slopes Doll!

So to make the winter more exciting for both of us, I’m hosting a GIVEAWAYΒ for this book and doll. All you have to do is make a comment below to be entered into the random drawing, where one lucky winner will be sent the prize!*(US entries only). To earn an extra 5 entries, you can share a post about Bookroo on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the hashtag #bookrooblog :)

    Have been meaning to leave a comment for a long time now to tell you how much we have loved getting our bookroo package each month. Always such a treat; we adore the wrapping, and how much thought must go into choosing the books. I know my little snow bunny would just love this one, too.

    I’ve just started collecting books for the seasons/ holidays and putting them out for the special occasions, this would be the perfect addition to our winter collection! (Sad to see our Christmas ones packed away, but there is something magical about snow books!) This one seems interactive too which is always a plus for young ones :)
