Not Wordless

Hello Friends.

There is a reason I am not wordless today.  Don't get me wrong, I like Wordless Wednesday, but what I am about to show you defiantly requires words.

Gather around friends for I have a story to share with you.  Are we all here?  OK let's begin.
Todays story is "The Listening Me" by Lydia Criss Mays.  Yes my friends THAT Lydia from See Beautiful!
"Early in the Morning...."
"Goose we can't see the pictures"
"Is that better?"
"Yeppers.  Oooooo look at those beautiful pictures.  Ok Goose keep reading, keep reading!"
"OK, OK, settle down.  First I want to talk to my friends out there then I will finish this great story."
Hey friends would you look at this... I got my very own signed copy of this wonderful book.  Just look at it, it is actually signed by Lydia!  OK it is addressed to my MOM.  Butt as you know what is MOM's is mine.  We share like that.  And I want to share with you too. 
If you have any little peeps in your life (even if you don't) this would be a great book to read with them or just to yourself.  So "LISTEN" up.  I am going to give away a copy of this book.  Entry is easy, just leave a comment on this post, I will put all names in a drawing and on Friday I will announce the winner.  How easy is that?   AND, since I happen to know the author I am going to have her sign your book.  So leave a comment, and if you just can't wait till Friday to see if you won you can just go HERE and get your very own copy.  OK I've got to go finish reading to my friends.

  29. Goose, you are such a reader!! AND LISTENER! I am so honored to share the book with you and your MOM - she's an amazing listener, you know. I am also thrilled to sign one of my copies for someone who commented here. It's made my day! Can't wait to find out who the lucky listener...I mean, winner, is tomorrow! Happy listening beautiful!

  30. Hi Goose, I can see that I need to start checking your blog before I go to bed-to catch up. This sounds like a wonderful story and I'd love a chance to win-after all I do have 11 little ones I could read it to. Love this post! You and mom are the best!

  31. Hi Goose,
    Sorry we've not been around too much to comment but we have been checking in on everyone when we can. You see, Grandpa Bob fell last week and hurt his leg badly. He is requiring a lot of help from all of us here and his BIG surgery is next Thursday so it's been crazy here.

    Hope it is not too late to enter your drawing for the book.

    Lily Belle & Muffin

  32. I would love to win a copy of this book goose...I go to read with a 3rd grade class each read and this would be a super book to give to the class and then they could read it to me :)

  33. Hi Y'all!

    That is an awesome copy of the book you have there!

  35. We are so behind reading blogs, Goose, but I said to my mom that oh, we MUST read Goose's blog! You look so smart and kind reading to everyone! I wish I had been there.

  36. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is great blog. A great read. Agen Sbobet
