Splash Into Summer Giveaway Hop (2 Winners)!

Welcome to the Splash into Summer Giveaway Hop!
What could be a better way to greet the hot new season than lots of cool giveaways? I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Page Turners Blog are co-hosting a week-long giveaway blog hop involving 300+ blogs, each giving away book-related prizes! Be sure to check out the linky at the end of this post and enter as many giveaways as you can! 

The warm weather in summer encourages us to get outside and get close to nature. I am giving away two sets of high-concept books from Blue Apple Books that are perfect for children who love to explore the great outdoors! Each winner will receive the following two books:

How Things Work in the Yard describes the inner workings of just about everything that's right outside a youngster's back door, including acorns, bubbles, puddles, ants, fireflies, clouds, birds and even dandelions. Written for kids ages 4-8. Creator Lisa Campbell Ernst deftly strikes the right balance of detailed yet easy-to-understand language and cleverly labeled drawings to inventively explain the functioning of objects that may seem quite ordinary to us grown ups but rather extraordinary to our children!

Bugs by the Numbers features an amazing array of insects: butterflies to termites, dragonflies to walking sticks. What makes this book a true stand-out is that these incredible insects are ingeniously engineered out of numerals. Each entry also includes fascinating numeric facts about its subject -- like how a flea can bite up to 400 times per day or that a queen termite can lay 1 egg every 15 seconds! This eye-catching and imaginative book for kiddos ages 6-12 features 9 die-cut gatefolds and text that is fun, funny and informative!

Both books are filled with colorful illustrations and interesting facts. I believe they appeal to both young book-lovers and their parents.
