Holiday Giveaway: Tag Jr. Reading Bundle

If you've been around for awhile, you know that Blogging 'Bout Boys is all about reading. (Well, about boys - and reading!) We talk about why boys won't read, ways to encourage them and strategies to keep your sons interested in the written word. We even feature Books for Boys, reviews and recommendations of books your sons might enjoy. And occasionally, I give away a fabulous prize designed to encourage a love of reading.

Today, my friends, is one of those days.

I am giving away a Tag Jr. reading bundle, featuring the innovative Tag Jr. reader and two board books, ABC Animal Orchestra and Winnie the Pooh. The set is valued at more than $50.

I still say that reading with your child is the best way to get him interested in books -- but the Tag Jr. adds an additional level of interaction to your experience. It's also great for independent play. Your preschooler can enjoy his books even when you're too busy to "read it again."

Want one for your very own?

To enter:
  • Become a fan of LeapFrog on Facebook. If you don't know how to do this, drop me a line. I'll walk you through it.
  • Leave a comment telling me your favoriate read-aloud book.

For extra entries, you can:

  • Tweet my contest.
  • Subscribe to my blog.
  • Follow my blog.
  • Post about my giveaway on your blog, including a link.

Just make sure to drop me another note, letting me know what you did and when you did it. You can Tweet the contest daily if you'd like; each Tweet = an additional entry.

If you'd like an even better chance of winning, visit these loveley blogs. They're each giving away a Tag Jr. as well!

My contest runs through 11:59 pm CST November 30. That's two whole weeks from now, so you have plenty of chances to win!

Fine print: Contest open to residents of the United States and Canada. Winner will be chosen by using random.org and will have 24 hours to respond to prize notification. If I don't hear from my winner withint 24 hours, another will be chosen by random.org.

  23. I love it! What a great list of books. I'm keeping count too. At this moment, we have 5 of the mentioned books in the house: Duck on a Bike; Green Eggs and Ham; Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?; The Sneetches; and The Little Red Caboose. Out of those, I'd be hard-pressed to pick a favorite. I think it would have to go to Sneetches, b/c I love reading Dr. Suess and b/c I love the moral of that story. But Brown Bear, Brown Bear comes in a close 2nd (after all, my oldest son was in love with the purple kitty before he could even say "purple kitty") with The Little Red Caboose coming in at 3rd.
