(Monthly Giveaway: $25 BookPeople Gift Card)

Quote #1 (Brand-Spankin'-New-Book): THE NIGHT GARDENER by the Fan Brothers
"That night he went to sleep with a sense of excitement. The following morning, William was not disappointed."

Quote #2 (Middle-of-the-Road-Newish-Book): THE INCREDIBLE BOOK EATING BOY by Oliver Jeffers
"Then after a while, and almost by accident, Henry picked up a half-eaten book from the floor. But instead of putting it in his mouth...Henry opened it up...and began to read. And it was SO good."

 Quote #3 (Classic Book): MAKE WAY FOR DUCKLINGS by Robert McCloskey
""Yes," said Mrs. Mallard, remembering the peanuts. "That looks like just the right place to hatch ducklings.""

Good luck and happy reading!
