Great Aussie Living Book Give Away

I feel a need to give away another book today as part of A Peaceful Day's Bithday Celebrations. So this will be The Great Aussie Give Away #2.


It's another goodie, too. It is Matthew Flinders by George Finkel, one of the fantastic Australians in History Series. It suits about 8-10 year olds, I'd guess. When, oh when, will somebody republish these great history books?

Once again this give away will run for a week. I'll draw a winner at about this time next Tuesday night. To enter simply leave a comment on this post before 6 pm (AEST) on Tuesday night.

Cool with that?

The winner of The Great Aussie Living Book Give Away #1?

Wy-Lah now has a new home in the beautiful far eastern corner of Victoria with Sarah and her wonderful family. Congratulations, Sarah. I'll get this into the mail for you in the next couple of days. I'm so glad it is you who won!!

Hip Hip Hurray!


  1. Oh WOW...how stoked am I to win the first prize!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you so much Jeanne! We have a lot of black cockatoos here and we luuurrrve them, they are my dh's favourite bird

    How did you do the draw?

  2. I'm glad it is you too, Sarah. I simply wrote each entry down in a list and used a random number generator from Random.org to select a number. It was 17 and that was you. Cool, eh!!

    I guess this means you're entered for #2 as well, eh?

  3. Congratulations Sarah!

    How generous you are, Jeanne, to open such wide spaces for others with your living books.

  10. Hey Jeanne - what an inventive idea you have with these fabulous book give-aways. How generous of you! Please count me in this week's entry.

  11. Congratulations Sarah!
    I would love to win a great "Aussie" heestory book. I went to school in Australia for fours years and I am sure that by the time I left school back in NZ I knew more about Aussie history than NZ history. Must remedy that!!


I'd love you to leave me a message. Tell me what you like - and what you don't. Just remember that this is what we do in our family - it doesn't have to be what you do in yours...
