31 for 21: Thankful Thursday Give Away

Happy Thursday everyone!  It has been a while since I did a Thankful Thursday in blogland and it let me tell you that it is long over due.

This is Ellie's favorite book:

It describes perfectly what (or who) I am thankful for today:

I Love You Through and Through
by Bernadette Rossett-Shustak
Illustrated by Caroline Jayne Church
(2005) Scholastic Books.

I love you through and through.

I love your top side. 
I love your bottom side.

I love your inside, 
and outside.

I love your happy side,
your sad side,
your silly side,
your mad side.

I love your fingers
and toes, 
your ears
and nose.

I love your hair and eyes,
your giggles
and cries. 

I love you running
and walking, 
silent (she is never silent)
and talking.

I love your through and through . . . 
. . . yesterday, today, and tomorrow too.

Because I love this book and because I love comments :), one Chronicles of EBB reader will receive a copy of this fabulous kid's book.  Tell me your favorite book or children's book in the comments and the winner will be drawn on 10/31/11.

Happy Reading!



  1. I think Liddy has that book!
    I have a couple of favorites. I'm a big fan of "Oh the Places You Will Go" by Dr. Suess. I never really remember reading Dr. Suess when I was a child myself but I just love that book!
    I also like " I love you more" and I just picked up "The Night That You Were Born", which is an adorable book!
    You don't have to enter me to win, since we already have it! :)

They all responded that it's actually a duck. Who knew?! :)
