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.......)
