When Your Books Go On A Blog Tour – Fun With ELEPHANT!


Hi Everyone!

I know.

It’s Sunday!

You’re supposed to get a day off from the computer and laze in bed with the comics.

Oh, wait.  That was so last century.  Nowadays you laze in bed but require some form of computer to access the comics 🙂

But today is July 9!

Only 2 DAYS until publication day!!!

The blog tour is going along swimmingly – tons of fun at every port!  In case you might have missed any along the way, here’s a handy list to date 🙂

7/1/17 – Susanna Leonard Hill – Blog Tour Kickoff

7/2/17 – Lauri Fortinos’s Frog On A Blog – Guest Post on Writing A Series PLUS a Giveaway!

7/3/17 – Jena Benton’s Of Tea And Mermaids Blog – Simply 7 Interviews with Susanna & Daniel PLUS a Giveaway!

7/4/17 – Lynn Davidson’s Polilla Writes Blog – LION book review and GAME

7/5/17 – Susanna Leonard Hill – Fun With LION

7/6/17 – Lynn Davidson’s Polilla Writes Blog – Interview with Susanna PLUS a Giveaway

7/8/17 – Vivian Kirkfield’s Picture Books Help Kids Soar – Will Write For Cookies With Susanna – Picture Book Writing Inspiration

I’d hate for you to miss any of the fabulous participating blogs so remember that if you comment on every post, you will earn yourself a chance toward the Special Prize Raffle at the end of the tour! (The goody bag and signed books described on the kickoff post.)  And if you share this, or any related post, item, photo, etc. on Social Media with the #whenyourbooks, each share will add to your chances to win Special Prize #2 at the end of the tour! (3 $25 Amazon gift cards up for grabs!)

Now, then!  Although I can’t exactly offer comics, I do have something almost like a comic for you today!

Are you ready?

It’s Elephant Fun!

Here’s a sneak peek at the ELEPHANT Activity Kit!

Like the LION Activity Kit, it will be up on my website any day now under For Teachers and Parents in the Coloring Pages & Activities section!

Plus you will no doubt be thrilled to know that the ELEPHANT book trailer is possibly finished and will possibly be revealed in the not-too-distant future!!!

And, if all that weren’t enough, if you’d like yet another shot at winning a signed copy of the book, you can hop on over to GoodReads and enter the giveaway!

    No surpirse that your books are precious, Susanna. They take after their creator, after all! Perfect post for a Sunday morning…and ever so much better than the comics! You’ve done a masterful job organizing all of this. 🙂

    • Susanna Leonard Hill says:

      So sweet of you to be following along, Danielle! And lucky for you, these board books are pretty sturdy and can be wiped clean of at least a little peanut butter should they happen to wind up in sticky hands… yours or anyone else’s 🙂

    Stealing the comics from my grandparents newspaper (they got the ‘big city news’) is one of my favorite childhood memories! Thanks for continuing to share… I’m definitely sticking around for the rest of the celebration.

    • Susanna Leonard Hill says:

      So sweet of you, Jennifer! I hope you’re having fun 🙂 It’s funny, I don’t remember reading comics with my grandparents, but I do remember my grandpa out in CA driving us down to the little general store for a soda pop in time for the big freight train to come through and we’d sit there in his car, sipping pop, and counting the cars! 🙂
