Good People Everywhere book {Giveaway}


The children's book, Good People Everywhere, for children aged 3 to 8, was just selected for a "Teachers Choice Award." It shares a soothing story that nurtures awareness of – and gratitude for – the many caring people in our lives.

Each page delightfully unfolds with vibrant, engaging illustrations and endearing stories that warm hearts, stimulate awareness, and inspire young and old alike to contribute to a world of compassion and beauty.
Quite cleverly, it gets kids thinking of how they can and do contribute to the world as well.  The result – your children will discover a different way of looking at the world and their place in it fostering a sense of calm and happiness.

This beautiful, hard-back book starts…"Today, in neighborhoods all over the world, millions and millions of people are doing very good things."  I love this message. I think we easily get caught up in the negative around us and I think there really are good people everywhere.

At the end of the book, the young reader is challenged, "What will you do today?"  

Good People Everywhere is written by Lynea Gillen.  She is the creator of "Mindful Moments Cards" - these are really slick by the way (click on the link)– and the winner of 2 Mom's Choice Awards for the book Yoga Calm for Children and the DVD Kids Teach Yoga:Flying Eagle.  You can learn more about Lynea at her Yoga CalmBlog and on Facebook.  Companion activities for Good People Everywhere can be found  at Three Pebble Press.   Illustrator, Kristina Swarder is also award-winning (Sydney Taylor Book award) and whose numerous books include Before You Were Born and Enchanted Lions.

Entry Rules
  • You must leave a comment in order to have an entry.
  • You must leave a separate comment for each entry. This is not so I can get lots of comments--it is because it makes it a million times easier to choose a winner. It takes less time, and less time is good. Plus, it makes sure I don't miss an entry.
  • You don't have to do all seven entries...for example, if you just want to follow this blog, you can just do entry one.
  • One entry per comment.
  • Up to seven entries per person.
  • You must fulfill the rules of each entry for each entry to count. If I see the entry is not valid (did not meet entry requirements), I will disqualify your entry. Trust me, I check.
  • Entries will be accepted until I choose the winner sometime December 7.
  • The winner will be randomly selected at random.org
  • The winner will be announced Friday December 7.
  • If you would like, you can add your email address to your entry. If you are the winner, I will email you to let you know. You do not need to add your email address in order to win. I understand not everyone wants to share their email addresses with the world. I will announce the winner on the blog, so you can check the blog Saturday to find out if you won.
  • Once the winner is announced, you will have one week to contact me or another winner will be chosen. Be sure to check back. The only thing worse than not winning is to win but not realize it in time!
  • US shipping addresses only please.

I have the best neighbors! They took turns making us dinner after Coltin was born and one neighbor helps me out when I have to pick up my older son by watching Coltin if he is sleeping.
