Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Give AWAYS? Shannon at Rocks in My Dryer (a fantastic blog, by the way) is hosting a give-away carnival. I love give aways...so how much fun to be one of the people giving away!

In keeping with the theme of my blog, I'm giving away a new copy of The Real Mother Goose, with the old-fashioned illustrations by Blanche Fisher Wright. (She's the illustrator for the Ten O'Clock Scholar picture in my title.) This is the book I grew up with (and many of you did, too, I bet!)

In order to win, all you have to do is submit a comment to this post. In it please include your favorite nursery rhyme (not in it's entirety - just a line will do!). From these commentors, I will randomly choose someone to win on Friday, July 2th, 2007. (The nursery rhyme is not required to win, just thought it would be fun.) Because of shipping costs, I reserve the right to limit winners to those with US addresses.

Thanks for coming by to visit - hope you'll take some time to check out the rest of my young blog!
