Free Book Giveaway: Olivia and the Little Way

It's time for a Free Book Giveaway!!! I love free books!

We are giving away three copies, yes three copies, of Olivia and the Little Way by Nancy Carabio Belanger and illustrated by Sandra Casali LewAllen. This is a lovely chapter book about a fifth grade girl trying to follow St. Therese's Little Way even though it's not easy when you live in the real world. She's dealing with peer pressure and all those things that come with being a tween girl but when you have the Little Flower as a friend things are bound to come out well in the end.

You can enter the contest four different ways, increasing your chances of winning:

  1. Leave a comment here at the blog (below and make sure we know how to contact you). Tell us why you'd love to win this book or why you love Homeschool Connections.

Contest ends August 2, 2011 at noon Eastern. Winners will be chosen by a random drawing. Good luck!

I would love to win this book for my two daughters when they get old enough to read it. Kids need solid, moral, Catholic literature.

We all need encouragement in living the Little Way in the "real world" so I also look forward to reading it myeslf. :)

Thank you!

I would love to win a copy of this book! St. Therese was the 1st saint I learned/read about when going through a big conversion. I have 4 girls and 4 boys (plus Baby) that I would love to read this to. I will always remember reading the story about St. Therese and Celine trying to have reason to 'pull a bead' when they were young and playing together.

Today is the first time I've been on your blog. I must say that I'm really excited about it. I'm just beginning the homeschooling journey this year for my first son (kindergarten). This blog will be an awesome resource as I get through the years. And yes, or course I would LOVE to get a copy of this book!!!
Thank you,
