Winners #34, #35 and #36
Paul T. from Roseville, California has won Scholastic’s Diary of a Spider DVD
that 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.
Other stories on the DVD include Roberto the Insect Architect, Norman the Doorman, The Mysterious Tadpole and The Story of the Dancing Frog.
Paul says what makes Roseville a great place to raise kids is the “assortment of organized outdoor activities.”
Midge from Eureka, California takes home Red Grammer’s Teaching Peace, one of Red’s six wonderful act-out sing-along children’s albums. (read the review). You really can’t go wrong with any of them. Grammer produces some of our favorite children’s songs.
Midge reports that Eureka is a great place to raise kids because her family “can afford to live on 1.5 salaries so I have more time to spend with our kids.”
Danny Lapidus and Francisco Cotto produce sophisticated children’s tunes in English and Spanish. You may recognize ‘Different Spokes’ in recent rotation on the Noggin’ Network.
Dani reports on the one special thing about her town is: “the beaches and rural scape of Lake Ontario mixed with the proximity of all the city has to offer. Taking our son to the Strong National Museum of Play, the summer street festivals and nearby winter skiing and sledding means that there are always new and fun places to explore with our kids.”
These three winners were randomly selected from comments posted anywhere on Thingamababy between June 21 and June 27 in the Thinga-Appreciation Giveaways #7, #8 and #9.
These contests are now concluded. Look for new ones this week. Thanks everyone for participating on Thingamababy!
