What are YOUR 5 favorite books? 
Check out the postscript, and be sure to let Scholastic Books know...for a great cause!



One of my new favorites is by a beloved blog-friend, the hostess/author behind SittingOnAnOak and CampbellLawson.com


Here, She-Twin's review of her new book, Somebody:


"Parents will enjoy Somebody because it will help them realize how often they say 'Somebody' instead of asking someone by name to do something*. Kids will feel better about discipline when they realize they are 'somebody special' all the time in their parents' eyes. [In the end] all the parents needed was a little help---literally!"

*As a twin mom I am very guilty of this practice! Now more aware, somebody in our house is committing to change...

We're also committing to a giveaway!

A copy of Somebody will be sent to a random commenter who shares their current favorite book to read to their children.  Comment anytime this week. Winner will be notified in the next Tuesday Twinterview.

GOOD LUCK!

Our friends at Scholastic Books, via Whoopi Goldberg on yesterday's The View, just debuted the "One Million Bookprints for One Million Books” Campaign, an initiative to donate one million books to kids who need to read...and don't hey all? Adults and kids alike are encouraged to join Scholastic’s online book community, YouAreWhatYouRead.com. Once there, make a Bookprint – a list of 5 books that have shaped your life. And for every Bookprint, Scholastic Book Clubs will donate a book. Make a difference this holiday season!


[*Twinfatuation is listing this initiative voluntarily. No remuneration is being received for this mention. We did receive review copies from Campbell Lawson gratis, with no promise of a positive review.  --CRL]

sounds like a great book! (I am SO guilty of yelling out "could somebody do_______." )

LOVE their book lists. My boys shared a lot of the same books as Darren at his age :)

My twins currently love Stuart Little and Junie B Jones.
