I got up close and personal with this great blue heron. He didn't care a lick about me snapping his photo. He was too busy staring intently at a fisherman at Lover's Key State Park in Florida. And the fisherman's pail of fish. I'm unsure if the heron got his helping.
And speaking of licks. My illustrated Kookaburra has his tongue wrapped around a gum drop. Yum. It's an illustration of the classic nursery rhyme Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree.
And you'll find it in volume 2 of these books I'm handing out! Each book is filled with fun illustrated nursery rhymes by the members of CBIG The children's book illustrators guild of Minnesota. They would make a great Christmas gift for the little ones in your life. You can find them on Amazon.
I'm also adding a copy of my book Maya Monkey. It's also available on Amazon. I illustrated Maya for Teacher Created Materials last year. But I didn't do a giveaway for her. Until now.
To enter the giveaway just be sure you're following me in my side bar and mention the giveaway in your comment. Then I'll pick two winners. One will receive a free copy of CBIG volume 1 and a copy of Maya Monkey and the other will receive CBIG volume 2 and Maya Monkey. I'll be sure to get them in the mail for Christmas!
P.S. As of December 16th I've decided to discontinue the giveaway. Because after 22 comments and 5 days I've only had 1 person enter the contest. That makes me feel like a scrooge. And at this point I wouldn't be able to alert the winners, acquire their address and get those books in their stocking by Christmas morning. Plus, next week I just want to wish everyone Merry Christmas instead of Bah Humbug. Bummer.
