Okay, after that super long blog title, I'd like to say that...
Today, I'm excited to join the the Sleigh Tour Bloggers this week as we share one of their favorite Children's Winter/Christmas stories. To see who else is on the tour you can visit the WinterHaven Sleigh Tour event.
My Children’s story choice for today is From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsburga Rafflecopter giveaway
I was interested in this story as it came highly rated and acclaimed as a Newbery Award winner. Well, the book From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs Basil E. Frankweiler, by E.L. Konigsburg did not disappoint. It is a children’s novel, however the story is engaging and entertaining all the way through. It’s a quick read that you can finish within less than a couple of hours.
Claudia and Jamie Kincaid decide to run away from home, and their destination is the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. They get involved in solving a mystery and make the most of their time away from home.
It’s a wonderful story that anyone can enjoy, but it’s definitely targeted toward younger readers. The dialog between the two main characters is witty and funny, and their adventure is one I wish I could have had as a kid. Overall, I enjoyed my fictional time at the Met. Great story!
In addition, as part of The Magic of Christmas, WinterHaven Books is hosting a give-back that will include two book bundles to be shipped to an elementary school or library of the winner's choosing. The winner will be offered a few options and they can choose what 2 bundles and location to ship to within the United States. Good luck and happy holidays!a Rafflecopter giveaway
