I'm so thrilled to host today's give-away! Boomerang! has been quietly impacting the lives of children and their families for decades, and it's my pleasure to introduce it to you. If you're lucky enough to already be familiar with them, you might be pleasantly surprised by their brand new website and blog. What is Boomerang!? It's been described as NPR for children and has won numerous awards. It's an audio extravaganza for children 6-12 years old, but grown-ups and teens have been known to hang off every word, as well. Each one hour segment comes as a CD or can be downloaded directly to your computer. Every episode is packed with stories, news, jokes and all the information curious kids want to know. You can check out some favorite episodes here... to get an idea of what I mean.
Boomerang! has generously offered to give away a free downloadable episode to: FIVE of you!! The timing couldn't be better... as summer rolls in, travel time with kids looms large. An educational program that engages everyone... is portable... and doesn't involve a screen... YES! To be entered in the drawing leave a comment here between now and Sunday, May 17th 6pm EST. I'll announce the winners on Monday. You don't need to have a child: your nieces and nephews, neighbors, best friend's kids... they'll thank you.
p.s. I am promoting them so whole-heartedly for my own pleasure, not for any monetary gains. In other words: I just think Boomerang! is wonderful!
