All day long I have been listening to people talk about why they think a date like 12-12-12 is a day of luck. I scoffed about it all day thinking it's just another ordinary day. Little did I know it was MY lucky day! First, my kids were extraordinarily well-behaved. Mind you, I always have a large handful who are little angels, but today was like no other! I received two planning periods since all of the second and third graders in our building needed joint concert rehearsal time. The Music and P.E. teachers did all of the supervising for us. Finally, I came home and when I opened up my e-mail account, I found out I was the BIG winner of Tanja's 12 Days of Giveaways. I cannot believe that I have won such AMAZING products!
Now, let's get back on track and talk about books for boys.
Courtney over at Swimming into Second is hosting a really fun linky party. She is having bloggers share their best books for boys. As if that wasn't great enough, one lucky participant will win a $25 Amazon.com gift card!
