Giveaway time!

I am SO excited because this is my very first giveaway! The prize is really cool, too - perfect for a holiday gift for the special kid(s) in your life, or even for you to enjoy yourself.

What's the prize? It is this:



the Jazzy Fairy Tales CD from Jazz for Young Children. Now, we have our own copy of this CD (thanks Rachel!) and it gets an enthusiastic thumbs up from every member of our family. Kiddo's favorite is the 3 Jazzy Little Pigs, but they're all spectacular. (The storyteller's voice reminds me a bit of Cleo from Between the Lions on PBS, which is just another plus in my book, as we are big Between the Lions fans here too.) Anyhow, it is a great CD that blends great music into familiar fairy tales to give them a fresh, exciting twist, and I'm giving a copy away to one lucky reader!
All you need to do to enter is leave a comment here on this post and tell me your favorite fairy tale, or if you don't have one, your favorite jazz song/artist/group. I will randomly draw a winner from the comments received on Saturday afternoon (that'd be December 6th), so you have until noon on Saturday to enter. Please be sure I have a way of contacting you (so if your profile information on the comment doesn't give me an email address, please leave it in your comment) to get your information if you are the lucky winner! Good luck!

(Oh, and if you are within driving distance of the NYC area, check out the Jazz for Young Children website because they do performances and conferences that you can attend live and in person! I wonder if my corner of upstate counts as "driving distance" hmmm.......)

Currently, the favorite fairy tale here is "Goldilocks" (Jump at the sun's version where Goldilocks is black and has gold beads in her braids).

I don't know if this qualifies as a "Fairy Tale" but my favorite has always been "Le Petit Prince" (The Little Prince) by Antoine de Saint Exupéry.

Who else can draw a snake swallowing an elephant?

Enjoy your first give away!!

Hmmmm...favorite fairy tale? I've always been intrigued w/Hansel and Gretel--something about that candy house!!

My fave jazz singer is totally obscure and no one has ever heard of him--but his name is Neal Kristie.

It's so hard to choose a favorite but I'm going to say Snow White. I would keep hoping every time that she would not eat that apple!

My daughter likes Goldilocks and her big brothers enjoy reading it to her!

I'd have to pick "The Emporer's New Clothes." I was going to pick "The Monster at the End of This Book" but I didn't think Sesame Street counts as a fairy tale. (Spoiler Alert - It was only Grover anyway) This was my daughter's most favorite book as she was growing up. I read it a million times and when she learned to read, she read it to me a million times.

OK favorite fairy tale is.... at the moment I think Little Red Riding Hood is the fave only because my Girl is into the cape!!
AND we love jazz around here... Dave Sanborn, Dave Koz am I leaving out a Dave??

My very favorite children's author is Tomie Depaola. He's done some wonderful fairy tales. I Love his "Big Anthony" books, and Strega Nona is a classic!

My godson would love this! Fun giveaway Heather.

Enter me, enter me! Stink is still a bit young, but he will sit and listen to me read to him for hours on end if I would--45 minutes is about my max. Then I need to move around!

I personally am in love with Kevin Henkes as a children's book author. But I am a huge fan of childrens books in general--so have very many favorites!

And, as far as fairy tales go, I love Hans Christian Anderson...The Princess and the Pea is my favorite of his works.
