Free Book Friday: Brian P. Cleary!

Time for Free Book Friday! First, congratulations to Bonnie Taylor, who's won Blazing Courage. Bonnie, please email us at to claim you prize.

This week, enter to win two Brian P. Cleary books: They're There on Their Vacation and Bow-Tie Pasta: Acrostic Poems.

Meet the Tuckabees. They're going on vacation. They choose the wackiest destinations for their family trips, and they have tons of fun when they get there. Come along for the ride—and learn to tell apart they're, their, and there.

Acrostic? What kind of stick is that? Actually, it's a poem! Award-winning author Brian P. Cleary explains how acrostics are created and shows how even the wackiest words be turned into a poem in the latest Poetry Adventures installment.

For resources including games, teacher guides, and worksheets, visit Brian P. Cleary's website!
