Books to the Rescue' Apple iPad 2 Giveaway

I was so excited to work with Shana at  The Writer's Lair Books again and to promote this fabulous giveaway in order to promote reading and to be able to donate a book to our local school library.  Many of you may remember my review of The Flightless Goose a while back which is a fabulous book published by The Writer's Lair Books. I have always loved to read and have felt that reading is an essential part of childhood.  My daughter inherited my love of books multiplied many times over.  She was always a child that preferred books to toys.  People were amazed that even as a toddler she would bring you book after book to read and listen for as long as you would read to her.  When she learned how to read she was unstoppable!  She read everything from billboards, food packages, even her grandparents senior citizens magazines!  I love to see children reading and to encourage their love of books.  While I know most of you won't read past "ipad 2 giveaway" I hope that I'm wrong and the true message to promote literacy is heard.
