Back to School With Bailey Giveaway

Kids love animals. They love to learn about animals, do things with them, and hear stories about them. So.... Go Back To School with BAILEY the dog!


Meet Bailey, a dog who surprises and charms his fellow human classmates with his irrepressible antics.

Follow Bailey the dog as he gets ready and goes to school. Should he wear the red or blue collar? Both are so fashionable! Will he be late? That squirrel is a distraction! And what about Bailey's homework? Would you believe he ate it? That is what dogs do, after all.

In this funny new book from the best selling children's illustrator Harry Bliss, school proves to be an unexpected place for Bailey to do all sorts of things he loves: reading, fetching, painting, digging, singing - and making friends!

I love Corduroy! It's a classic. I have the stuffed bear to match the story.

I love Frog and Toad. They have great lessons my students can relate to and discuss. I love how they talk in the book and it has been great for illustrating (not sure if that is the word I should use) characters talking.

I didn't know you were on Facebook until you blogged this post! I "liked" you!

My (current) favorite animal book is Scardy Squirrel. I thought my kinders wouldn't get the humor of that book, but they laugh and laugh every time! I was lucky that a parent purchased it for my class at a bookfaire 2 years ago, otherwise, I wouldn't have ever shared it with my class!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Scaredy Squirrel! My kinders are going to love it!
