Building on the success of the Kid Lit Giveaway Hop that we hosted in May, 2013, Mother Daughter Book Reviews and Youth Literature Reviews are pleased to provide you with the opportunity to take part in another Kid Lit Giveaway Hop. This time around we are featuring the Best of Summer 2013. If you are a children’s, youth, or young adult book blogger looking to share copies of a fabulous book that you have read or are planning to read over July and August 2013 you are welcome to link up below. Authors, publishers, and publicists are, of course, also welcome to join in as always. In acknowledgement of our friends in the Southern Hemisphere who are experiencing the opposite season, you are more than welcome to grab some of our sunshine and link up as well!
How Does it Work?
Dates: August 26 to September 6, 2013
- Posts must go live before 12:01 AM (EST) on August 26, 2013
- Giveaway must end on September 6, 2013 @ 11:59 PM (EST)
(If using Rafflecopter, set your widget to end on September 7, at 12:00am)
Prize: Children/Youth/Young Adult Book and/or a Gift Card
If your prize consists of a book, it must be one appropriate for children or youth under the age of 18. You can also offer an Amazon gift card, a credit at the Book Depository, or PayPal cash as a prize (minimum $10) in conjunction with a book OR in lieu of a book, but your post MUST discuss children/youth/young adult books or literature. Links to posts just offering a gift card or cash with no mention of children/youth/young adult books or literature will be removed from the linky list. If unsure, email me!
