Zero the Hero ~ Leap into Books giveaway hop

Thanks for visiting my blog during the Leap Into Books Giveaway Hop

My giveaway is:
One autographed copy of my hardcover picture book
illustrated by New York Times bestselling Tom Lichtenheld.
Zooming into bookstores in Feb 28th!

Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada. That's what the other numbers think of Zero.
But he'll prove he's a hero!
“This tale not only reinforces mathematical principles, but also has a great message about friendship and personal feelings. It can be read aloud, alone, or performed as reader’s theater.”
--School Library Journal
“Read this aloud to whet the new reader’s appetite, but there is just so much to see that only a slow reading, with a magnifying glass in hand, will do.”
--Horn Book Magazine
"A hero and some villains and good winning over evil (oh, and all that educational stuff, too), all wrapped in humor and tied with a comic bow—what could be better?" 
--Kirkus Reviews

Hi Sharon,
Thanks for coming by! That’s a really generous idea. Love it.

Hey Unknown,
Thanks for tweeting! Much appreciated. What’s a picture book 12x12? I’m out of the loop. Let us know if you get a chance.

Hi Lisa,
You too, Lisa. Thank you so much for dropping a comment. Cute profile icon! Orange is one of my favorite new colors for decorating.

Hi Tiff,
Thank you, thank you for helping to get the word out. xox

Hi Tanya,
I’m so glad you use the phrase. “Firsties” is a cute nickname. :o) I was visiting a class in California when I first heard the phrase years ago. It took me a while to get a book written though. Which was lucky since the timing worked out for the amazing Tom Lichtenheld to illustrate it. Thank you for the comment!!

Kelly, hi,
Love the bee! Kindergarten and First Grade teachers like you and Tanya rock bigtime! I learned to love school in these grades and I’m betting your students are too. xox
