Cedar Valley Publishing: Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed with 188 comments. Thank you to all who entered. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ lezanac!

I am a huge fan of education and come from a family of school teachers. My children enjoy learning and better yet, they love school. My daughter can't get enough of preschool and my son asks if he can go to school on the weekends. I'm so fortunate to have children who think learning is the greatest and I want to help fuel their enthusiasm. I'm also thrilled to have found Cedar Valley Publishing. This is a company that takes learning seriously.

I bet you can guess how excited I was to receive my two books from this company. Their Let's Get Ready For Kindergarten and Let's Get Ready For First Grade books are absolutely outstanding.

My daughter will be going into kindergarten this fall. She's already super excited. Wow, where does the time go?!? Let's Get Ready For Kindergarten is an excellent book that will help her have that head start. She loves reading it and it's a wonderful learning tool for us to use together. It has everything you could possibly want in a kindergarten learning book. I wish we had this book when my son was in preschool. Instead, we had numerous books, but none as complete as this.

I love how all of the pages are laminated and can withstand wear and tear. It's a great idea because you'll definitely be using this book over and over again. It will quickly become a family favorite.

Their Let's Get Ready For First Grade book is amazing. It's full of valuable information that is vital for the first grade. As a parent, I love this book. It takes learning to a whole new level. My kids love the fun pictures and colors. It makes learning exciting and enjoyable. I love its overall layout and organization. These books are a must-have for any child and parent. Click here to view sample pages of each book.

Here is a bit about the author from their website:
