There were 77 total entries for this giveaway; I hope you all enjoyed reading MaryAnn Kohl’s thoughts about the importance of art in early childhood. If you didn’t win, be sure to check out her website, where you can order her books or even download an e-version of many of her books! Many libraries also have them! These books are an indispensable part of our home. I know I have been encouraged to do more art with my son, and I hope many of you have also!
Comment # 31 was on the second post of the series, and was made by Andrea, who said, “As a kindergarten teacher, I've noticed so much problem-solving and cooperation that develops as children interact at the art centre.Thanks for sharing your other ideas about how art helps development.”
Andrea, I’ll be getting in touch with you to get your shipping address!
On a side note, I received a couple of entries late yesterday via email. Apparently my comments section was loading slowly, and this kept more people from entering. I’m truly sorry for this, and wish I had known about this problem sooner. I’ve begun using Disqus.com for comments, and while it is great for the most part, it does load slowly. I promise to find a fix for this before my next giveaway.
