Just when you thought it was safe to venture back into the blogosphere . . .
duhn duhn duhn . . .!
. . .I’ve got another blog tour starting!
I know! The first one isn’t even finished!
They’re right on top of each other and overlapping and I know it’s a lot to keep up with!
*hides under the kitchen table*
(Believe me I know! My house hasn’t seen a vacuum in two weeks and my refrigerator is empty except for a wrinkled lemon no one’s been desperate enough to tangle with!)
But the trucks and I would be ever so grateful if you’d journey along the road with us a little ways. They’re VERY cute! And I don’t want them to feel less loved then LION and ELEPHANT! That would be sad 😦
So let’s break out their shiny new blog tour banner, shall we?
Have you ever seen such friendly little trucks?
Er… I mean BIG trucks! MIGHTY trucks! They’re strong! They’re tough! They’re heavy duty! (And they have really nice teeth, don’t they? 🙂 )
Julie is really kicking off the tour over at Little Red Story Shed today. She has a review of the book and a delightful activity she did with her preschoolers. I hope you’ll hop on over and visit her!
We’ve got a great line-up of fun-filled posts – interviews with me and Erica Sirotich (the talented illustrator), activity and coloring page reveals, book reviews and giveaways, games, recipes, crafts, and a book trailer reveal (a little farther into the tour because I haven’t made it yet! 🙂 ) as well as a couple of special prizes!
As with the WHEN YOUR… blog tour, I’m really hoping that the lovely people who are being kind enough to host, especially on this second, overlapping tour where readers will undoubtedly be feeling a little burned out on Susanna Hill blog tours!, will get some visitors for all their kindness and hard work. (Please also bear in mind that with the exception of a couple days in August – I think August 3, 10, and 15 – you’ll get a nice break from me until the around the second week of September… so there’s hope if you can just soldier through the next couple weeks 🙂 )
To make it even more fun, I will once again offer a Special Prize to be raffled off among people who visit and comment on every stop on the tour!
I’d also love the trucks to get their little moment in the social media limelight, so every time you share on Face Book, Twitter, or Instagram using the hashtag #trucksontour you will get an entry in a raffle to be conducted at the close of the tour in which 3 $25 gift certificates to Merritt Bookstore and Toystore will be up for grabs! We can support a wonderful independent bookstore, and you can get your choice of any book on your wishlist and a great selection of high quality toys! (And if a book on your wish list should happen to be one of mine, I can sign it for you 🙂 )
Here’s the schedule so you can plan your summer so as not to miss anything important 🙂
(With a million, billion, trillion thanks to Katie Hill for fixing all the formatting issues after I totally screwed it up even though she was tired and sunburned from a long day at work! Love you, sweetie ❤ )
Off we go with TRUCKS ON TOUR!
Don’t forget to share today’s post and Julie’s or any other relevant delightful items – photos, books in the wild sightings, truck-related crafts, activities, games or recipes – with the hashtag #trucksontour! (Credit for that clever hashtag to Julie Abery! Thank you again, Julie!)
(Yeah… you can see how this is gonna go… give me about 12 seconds and I’ll be hopelessly confused between the two tours! I’m hoping you guys will be able to keep it all straight! 🙂 )
Have a marvelous Monday, everyone!!! 🙂
