Narnia and Ramona Giveaway

As part of the Summer Reading Challenge, I want you to read good books this summer.  To help you to do this, I have books to giveaway to two readers. Ramona would be a great read aloud with children, and Narnia books are for the young and old alike.  I found the sets used at the right price and bought them to give to a reader of This Simple Home.  We use our library a lot, but I think both of these sets are worth owning.

The first book giveaway is a set of five gently used Ramona books, by Beverly Clearly.  These are wonderful books for reading out loud or independent reading for preschoolers through third grade.  Ramona may find herself in a lot of scrapes, but with her family's support and a great imagination, she navigates life.  (Did you know about the Ramona and Beezus movie?  I didn't until recently.  The DVD is just $5 and has great reviews.)

 C.S. Lewis's classic Chronicles of Narnia is a must-read for children and adults.  We have the giant seven-books-in-one-volume that my husband gave me when we were engaged.  We recently bought a set of the individual books (used) that we thought would be easier to manage for read alouds and children reading independently for ourselves.  Please note, these used books are all the same size and with similar covers, but they were not published by the same publisher.  If you win, you might join the Narnia Reading Challenge hosted by Reading to Know every July.

  1. I try to have a book basket with choices for the girls throughout the year. I try to have a mixture of fun books and some on our school subjects as well. We are always looking for new books to add to our collection. Somehow Narnia isn't (yet) though I've heard good reviews.

  2. I have to choose?? I have great memories of reading both sets of books! Hmm, if I had to pick one, though, it would be the Chronicles of Narnia. We don't have a complete set of them.

  5. Hmmm..... The choices, I could get a 3rd, yes that's right 3rd set of the Narnia books (Jeff and I both had 1 when we got married), or the Ramona books.

    I think I'll go with the Ramona books, because I'm thinking of those for a future book and movie night.

  10. We have Narnia so someone else should enjoy that. I'd love to have Ramona, though. I was just thinking it was time to read those again, and maybe this time, they could read them independently. One can hope!

  11. Romana was definitely one of my go to's when I was younger. I love reading, but it's nowadays it's hard to get kids interested in reading. My nieces and nephews barely pick up a book. It's sad, I definitely blame technology.

  15. My 7 year old has read most of the Ramona books. She was my favorite as a kid! I'd choose the Narnia books since he hasn't read them and we can read them together. =)
