Congratulations! Please send your mailing instructions to gerb (@) lindagerber (.) com and we'll get that out to you. Everyone, thanks for your comments - especially for sharing what you can to do promote literacy. I see I am not the only one who was inspired this week to make more of an effort in that area. Come on back on Friday for another Freebie, featuring tips from writing moms and a chance to win a signed copy of Margaret Peterson Haddix's newest, SABOTAGED.
