Hello, Wonderful drawing prize! My tip is for gardening. I don't use mulch and if I do, I keep it away from the base of the plant. Mulch attracts bugs to the plant. Please enter me in your drawing. Thanks,Cindi

Lexi said...

My favorite thing to cook is lasagna! Or maybe that's my favorite thing to eat, I forget....

My favorite kid's book: The very hungry caterpillar. Been my fave since my mom read it to me.

I have no gardening tips. Or maybe I do...plants need water. If you do not water them, they will die. This is why I have none.

Bebemiqui said...

Favorite kids book would be "I Was So Mad" by Mercer Mayer. Great giveaway! Count me in. bebemiqui82(at)yahoo(dot)com

Linda said...

My favorite book is "Fancy Nancy" and I love to bake and decorate cakes. (I almost like reading cookbooks as much as children's books.) I am still learning about gardening but my best tip won't always yield the greatest plants, but it will yield great kids...let the little ones help. You will be surprised at how interested they are and it is a great time to just be together and talk.

Elizabeth said...

We love to read "I'd be your hero." I love how it has scripture throughout the story. I'm always looking for a good children's adoption book. All my babies are adopted.

We LOVE to make cookies around here. And popcicles (that's not cooking though...ha!). I love making a good Sunday roast for my hubby too.

Kelsey Smith said...

I LOVE the book Stellaluna - great children's book :)

Tipp said...

My favorite book is The Giving Tree.

Great life lessons!

ikkinlala said...

These are interesting questions, so I'll answer them all. It's tough to choose, but I think my favourite children's book is Where Is the Bear and my favourite thing to bake is huckleberry pie. My best gardening tip is to figure out which weeds are edible - that way you won't mind them so much (some are quite tasty).

Around our house, our favorite book is My Big Book of Things that Go.
Or a construction book from the library!
P.S. Happy Birthday, Calvin. It's fun to be three!

amateurdelivre said...

I can't pick a favorite (I don't think) but Dr. Seuss will always be my favorite children's author. Please count me in!

amateurdelivre at gmail dot com

Michelle said...

My favorite children's book... that's hard to pick! We own hundreds (I used to teach elementary school) and I love almost all of them for one reason or another. But okay, if I have to pick? Everywhere Babies by Susan Meyers.

And just for fun? I'll answer the other questions too. My favorite thing to cook is lasagna, and my favorite thing to bake is brownies. My favorite gardening tip isn't very helpful though. It's this: "Get my grandmama to grow it for you!" (LOL! I did NOT inherit her amazing green thumb, but I try every year to grow something.)

It's been awhile since I read any children's books but I remember one I loved. I think it was called Are You My Mother? Being a wildlife rehabber and "mother" to lots of baby birds, I sometimes see a bird in the wild and ask--Was I Your Mother?

As for gardening...that is not my strong suit but I can tell you that if you use worm castings on your fruit bearing trees it will keep the bugs and birds away.

My favorite kids' books are the Frances badger series by Russell Hoban.

I love to make lasagna, stroganoff, and all kinds of fattening pasta dishes.

I'd love to know even one gardening tip, but sadly, no. If I win the seeds, I promise to do some research and try real hard not to kill them.

Oh, I'd really like the seeds, but I'm lucky to keep the green things alive long enough to see them break ground. I'm better at cooking. I make some mean chocolate chip cookies with a hershey kiss in the middle. My mouth's watering just thinking about them.
