Enter to Win: Contagious Colors Prize Pack (1 Winner!)

by Tara Kuczykowski on October 3, 2013 · 170 comments

Join me every week for Win-It Wednesday, with 24-hour giveaways just for you!


Here's another fun giveaway - this one just right for the middle schooler in your life!

If there’s one important thing Wilmer Dooley’s dad always says, it’s this: “Where are my car keys?”

Okay, maybe not that. He also says: “Observe!

In The Contagious Colors of Mumpley Middle School, Wilmer knows that the greatest science comes from the keenest observations. So when he observes his classmates looking a little green…and orange...and chartreuse-fuchsia polka-dotted...he knows that it’s up to him to find the cause of this mysterious illness—and the cure!

But with his arch nemesis, Claudius Dill, hot on his heels; the eagle-eyed biology teacher, Mrs. Padgett, determined to thwart his plans; and a host of fluorescent classmates bouncing off the walls at increasingly dangerous speeds, can Wilmer prove he has what it takes to save the sixth grade from a colorful demise before it’s too late?

 

One (1) lucky Deal Seeking Mom reader will win a Contagious Colors Prize Pack, which includes:

  • A copy of The Contagious Colors of Mumpley Middle School
  • A $300 Visa gift card to upgrade your school supply closet
  • A set of Contagious Colors band-aids

To enter, share one thing you often say to your young learner to encourage them to observe and explore new things.

I have taught my daughter that reading doesn't only teach you to read but it opens your mind to so many things. When you read you learn about so many things .

We are always taking walks outside exploring. Then we head to the library to look for books about animals or insects that we found.

I encourage my three children to think for themselves, ask questions, give every task their best whether it's play or work, and to thank God for their blessings every day.

When my daughter asks a question, I first ask her "what do you think?" as a way of getting her to consider possibilities before we seek out the answers together.

I tell them one, you can make anything with your imagination and be creative. Two you don't have to be the best or fastest aslong as you give it YOUR all and 100%.
