Amazon Has Gone Whacko Giveaway

I think Amazon has gone whack-o. 

I order this book a few weeks ago when I saw it pinned on Pinterest. I thought it looked like the perfect book to teach how to pick a good fit book, but sadly it was back ordered. So I placed my order and decided to wait.
 Finally about a week ago I got my order. I opened the box and there were TWO of the same book. Ok I thought I must have hit the button one too many times.
But then this week ANOTHER copy showed up! It’s a great book but THREE copies?? What will I do with three? I could send them back, and get my money back. Or I could sell them. But then I thoughtwhy not share them??
So there you are. I’m giving them away. TWO lucky winners will win a copy of the book AND a 5$ gift card to TpT to buy the wonderful pages that Irene Hines made to go with them. 
I'm going to try my hand at this Rafflecopter thingy- ma- gig but if it doesn't work I'll go back to my old standby. The Hubbycopter.

Before I leave I wanted to show you a picture of one of my sweeties.

  She was the first one to take home "Mr. Ted E. Bear" and one of our family involvement journals. Ol Mr. Bear is bigger than my teeny tiny firstie, but her excitement was GREAT BIG!! The kids have been LOVING the Family Involvement Journals. You can find them here if you'd like to take a peek.
