Want these books?

TIMES UP! I'll announce the winner shortly.




I'm giving away these books. This set is a collection called One World, One Planet and includes books, music and activities.


Why?


Cause it is Thanksgiving. And almost Christmas. And I love them. And because, like I have said a thousand times before, if you want our children to save the world you have to teach them to love the earth.




10% Off Large Button



And, Rebecca of Barefoot Books is offering Old Red Barn Co. readers 10% off if you use code SCSTHE at checkout. So really, everyone is a winner!!

Leave a comment to this post to enter. I will use the random number generator thingy-ma-bob to choose a winner next Tuesday, December 2, 2008.

Good luck peeps!

Happy Thanksgiving.
