Thinga-Appreciation Giveaway #9
Contest #9: Diary of a Spider DVD! This Scholastic book-on-DVD includes read-along captioning for kids learning to read. It’s adapted from the original book by Doreen Cronin, illustrated by Harry Bliss, and now narrated by Angus T. Jones.

One winner each week, for the next four weeks, will take home this DVD!
Rules in Brief
This is about reader appreciation. To enter, simply read and post
comments as you normally do anywhere on Thingamababy.
For each contest, I will select as a winner one user who has posted a comment within the past
week (the first winners get picked next Saturday).
The contest is open to residents inside and outside* the United
States. *Residents of the International Space Station excluded. Sorry
Peggy, Yuri, Clayton, Daniel, Leopold, Garrett and Sheikh, but we’ll be
happy to ship to your domestic address in the event you win.
The contest will run for four weeks.
Officially, the winner will be selected by me based on my own purely
subjective criteria that is free to change from week to week. For the
first week, I will choose a winner at random. If I see a rush of
empty-headed comments being posted, I’ll change the criteria to a true
sense of my personal appreciation, using comment criteria such as
thoughtfulness, educational value or humor.
To be eligible, users must include a valid e-mail address in their
blog comment. Contacted winners must provide their shipping address to
Thingamababy (who will then share it with the artists or their publicists for the purpose of shipping the prize).
Ineligible comments are ones identified as spam by my blog software or
that I would normally delete myself due to their spammy or offensive
Each of these first four giveaways are for user comments posted
Saturday through Friday (Pacific Time) on any blog article anywhere on
- Giveaway #1: comments posted between May 31 and June 6.
