GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED- and the winner is LAURIE! Congrats!! (winner was chosen using random.org)
Strawberry season is coming close to an end. So far we’ve made 2 trips to the strawberry patch that is, conveniently, less than 10 minutes from our home. The kids were such great pickers this year- I was impressed! With almost every strawberry you could hear one of them cry “Mom, look at THIS one!!” or “WOW!- this one is SO perfect!!” I think they really were enjoying the adventure of finding the “perfect one”. I always look forward to picking berries together- such a simple activity, but always rewarding and always a nice memory to tuck away.
Whenever I go berry picking-and smell that super-sweet smell of the strawberries wafting through the air, and think of finding the “perfect” strawberry- I always think of the book I read when I was a little girl, “The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear“. Have any of you ever read that one? It’s a cute little book. It’s about a little mouse who finds THE perfect strawberry- but there is a bear around that likes red, ripe strawberries, and little mouse has to find a way to hide the strawberry so the bear won’t eat it! Will he be able to?
SO- in honor of Strawberry season, good memories, and books from my childhood- I am giving away 1 new copy of The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear.
