Kevin Henkes Giveaway- Chester's Way- CLOSED


Congrats to our giveaway winner! I'm emailing you right now!

In conjunction with this week's Virtual Book Club for Kids Blog Hop featuring books by Kevin Henkes... I am so excited to announce a special Book Giveaway Week sponsored by Harper Collins Publishers.



Yesterday I shared three activities that we did which were inspired by the book Chester's Way. You can also find a simple book related word search activity and browse the book over on the Kevin Henkes website.

Chester's Way shares such a sweet story about two best friends who include someone who is new (and different from them) in their group of friends after a little twist helps them realize that this new friend is special. This is a wonderful book to use as you teach children about making new friends and learning about similarities and differences that they each have.




I am so excited to share this book with you! I have one free copy of Chester's Way to give away this week! There are also giveaways on several other blogs listed below... so hurry over and enter their giveaways too and maybe you'll wind up with a whole library of Kevin Henkes books!!

  7. We decorated our names with various materials, buttons, pom poms, tissue paper, feather, glue, etc. to go along with Chrysanthemum. We counted the letters in each name and compared them for more/less and longest/shortest. Super simple but fun activity for my young students :)

  19. Kevin henkes is a fantastic writer. We love him in my house and I love him in the classroom. I am a second grade teacher and have used all of his books at one time or another. I love the sweet treats pack, you get to revisit his famous characters in a short simple story. I use those book to teach small moment writing. I use his books to teach many writing crafts and over the years many of my children have aspired to write just like him. I love Lilly in all of the stories she is in or makes an appearance in. Julius baby of the world is great as well as Chester's way. Thank you for this opportunity . Bklyn1123@aol.com
