Fantastic Mr. Fox
Happy Monday! This week, we’re giving away a couple of wonderful books for kids. The first is that Roald Dahl classic, “The Fantastic Mr. Fox,” with photos from the recent movie. And we’re pairing it with The Inside Tree, by Linda Smith a cool new picture book called “The Inside Tree,” by Linda Smith. It’s the story of sweet Mr. Potter (no relation to Harry), who feels sorry for his dog, sleeping alone outside under a tree, so he invites him in and makes him an “inside dog.” And all’s well until he starts feeling sorry for the tree, all alone. So he … well, you’ll see.

And both these books can be yours! Click “comments” and tell us, what’s your family’s favorite book? We’ll draw a winner’s name on Monday, March 8.

Meanwhile, it’s time to give away that Scooby-Doo Laff-a-Lympics DVD from last week, so we’ll draw a name and … Congrats, Cheryl! What fun to read about everyone’s favorite Winter Olympics sport – and we got a kick out of Jason’s suggestion that ice fishing be part of the Olympics. We can hear the announcers now, speaking in hushed, golf-like tones, “We’re in hour 47 of the ice fishing championships and it looks like the Finnish team may be getting a nibble at last…”
