We are having our first giveaway! I hope you are as excited as I am! 

We are giving away two wonderful classics...

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott 
"Family Life, Family Love! The warmhearted story of the four March sisters: Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy growing up in 19th century America. Their happy family life is disturbed when their father leaves for the Civil War, and shaken further when mother must leave to nurse their wounded father back to health. But family love and loyalty keeps them together. As the years pass the girls become women and learn more about life and love. Louisa May Alcott's timeless classic shows the joys of growing up in a warm and loving family." AND...

Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery
"Spunk and Spirit! The farm couple wanted to take in an orphan boy - someone they could raise who will help with the chores. But by mistake, they were sent a girl, the lively independent red-headed Anne, who soon turned their lives and their world topsy-turvy with her way of doing things. . .ways very different than anyone in the sleepy country town had ever thought of! But as Anne goes from escapade to achievement, from problem to promise, everyone around her comes to realize what a very special girl they have in their midst. Come delight in Anne's story as friendship and duty turn to love."

These books are brand new, hard cover editions.
