I am delighted to be able to give away a copy of the adorable Merry Christmas Splat & More Winter Stories, from my very favorite series for kids, Scholastic Storybook Treasures.


Splat the cat is worried that he hasn’t been as good as he’d hoped on Christmas Eve.   In Fletcher and the Snowflake Christmas, the little fox and his rabbit friends are worried that Santa won’t be able to reach them.  More soft white stuff falls in Snowflake Bentley, in this true story about the pioneering scientist who studied water crystals.  And in Owl Moon, and owl and his daughter go exploring together.

Send me an email at with Snow in the subject line and tell me your favorite winter activity.  Don’t forget your address!  (US addresses only)  I’ll pick a winner at random on December 5.  Good luck!
