It's time for another weekend blog hop! This is my Make My Saturday Sweet blog hop and anything family friendly is welcome. Today is our 61st week. The rules are easy and you can find them below along with the hop.
I'm also taking part in the
Kid Lit Giveaway Hop
Our lovely hostesses are
Katie @ Youth Literature Reviews and
Renee @ Mother Daughter Book Reviews
One of the ways that I could participate in the Kid Lit Giveaway Hop was to give away a Christmas themed book. I jumped at the idea as I have an extra paperback copy of one of my favorite Christmas time stories, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis. I'll be mailing this brand-new book to one lucky winner. It's about the same size as an A4 page, about 11"x9" (29cmx23cm) and is beautifully illustrated by Christian Birmingham. This raffle is open World Wide. Just follow the prompts on the Rafflecopter below to earn entries for the draw.
I did an interactive review of the book with Amanda almost a year ago. I wanted her to experience the story. She owns the same book, only hers is in hardcover. You can check out this fun book review here.

Another Book Giveaway
A bloggy mom and friend of mine is hosting a giveaway of her young adult fiction novel, A Tale in Two Parts. You can visit her blog, Typative Mama Cat to enter the giveaway and you can visit my book review and author interview to find out more about the book and the mom who wrote it.

The sentence to finish this week is:
One of my favorite childhood memories is…
eating spaghetti ice cream in Germany at the ice cream parlor (Eisdiele). Delicious vanilla ice cream is squeezed through a "potato ricer" type Spätzle maker to look like spaghetti. Strawberry sauce is poured over it to look like tomato sauce. Shavings of vanilla chocolate are sprinkled on top to look like Parmesan cheese. Hidden underneath this tower of heaven is a dollop of fresh whipping cream.
The best ice cream I've ever eaten was in Italy and Germany. Here's a fun cultural article about ice cream in Germany.
And, I'm participating in
The theme for this month is
"A Season to Celebrate."
Everyone who participates has been asked to link something with a Christmas theme. My book giveaway has a fabulous Christmas theme in the story. Make sure you enter to win a copy of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe!
