Celebrate Children's Book Week Giveaway Hop: "The Knowing Book," by Rebecca Kai Dotlich

Welcome to the Celebrate Children's Book Week Giveaway Hop hosted by Mary at Bookhounds! Every blogger participating in this hop is giving away a children's book or a gift card to purchase one. After entering my giveaway, be sure to hop around to the other participating blogs listed in the linky at the bottom of this post for the chance to win more wonderful children's books!

For my giveaway, I am offering a hardcover copy of a beautiful new children's book called The Knowing Book, by Rebecca Kai Dotlich.

What I love about this book is that it's more than a children's book. It is actually a wonderful gift for a graduate, the newly married, or anyone who is beginning a new chapter in their life. Yes, it's the story about a rabbit who sets off on a journey, but it's much more. It provides life lessons to encourage people to live to the fullest. For example, it tells us:

Open a door. Follow a trail
or a sidewalk or a sign.
Any one of them will
take you somewhere.
You will choose. 

Beautifully and simply illustrated by Matthew Cordell, this book is as lovely to look at as it is to read. I hope you'll share this book with your family and then pass it along to someone who needs to hear its inspirational message.

Enter through the Rafflecopter form below. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only and ends at 11:59 PM EST on May 8, 2016.

Now hop around to the other blogs in the linky for the chance to win more children's books!

Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher, which I am donating and mailing to the winner for this event. This post includes my Amazon affiliate link.
