Fall Festival of Children’s Books (and giveaways)

Here at 5 Minutes for Books we love letting you our readers know about interesting books that publishers and authors and PR firms send our way. We like to offer reviews across many genres for all ages. In any given week you’re likely to see us review novels, a memoir, and then maybe some other interesting non-fiction selection for adults. Each week we feature a few reviews for children’s books as well, be they Young Adult novels, chapter books, picture books, fiction or non-fiction.

We noticed that we had a higher than average percentage of great children’s picture books waiting to be reviewed, so we decided to have a festival!

For the next 10 days, we are going to be having a Fall Festival of Children’s Books, which means instead of offering variety we are going to review Children’s Books. LOTS and lots of children’s books! We are going to be reviewing funny books, sweet books, religious books, beautifully-illustrated books. We’ll feature fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. And we will have giveaways! Lots of giveaways.

Just look at the information on each post to see if it is a giveaway or not, and what the terms are.

In addition to the individual giveaways, we are going to give away a grand prize. The grand prize will feature most of the books that had giveaways offered on our Fall Festival of Books.

To be eligible for this grand prize giveaway, here’s what you can do:

  1. Review a children’s picture book on your site this week (by September 27), and mention the Fall Festival of Children’s Books (and giveaways). Just write your review and link to this post. Then link up your review AND leave a comment on this post. You can write one post each day if you’d like. Give the name of the book that you reviewed in your link-up.
  2. Tell your friends and followers about the Fall Festival of Children’s Books (and giveaways!) on your Facebook page or Twitter (linking to this page). Leave a comment here, with the link if possible. You can do this once a day. Leave a comment each time.
  3. Leave a comment on any of the reviews that are part of the Fall Festival of Children’s Books that DO NOT have a giveaway attached to it. You do not need to leave a comment here saying you left a comment, but those comments left will count as a grand prize entry as well.

Check out all the reviews for the Fall Festival of Children’s Books, including the ones left in the linky below:

  1. […] Beautiful Oops is a book for all ages so don’t be fooled by it’s board book look.  I will use it to help my children learn to see the possibilities in the oops but the idea behind the book is so important for me, too.  I highly recommend this book for everyone.  **See other children’s book reviews around the web at The Fall Festival For Books.
