Life is like a Ferris Wheel…you must get past the fear to enjoy the ride.
~ Linda Poindexter
In early August I wrote a "Few Words Wednesday" post about George Ferris and his ingenious invention: the Ferris Wheel. A week or so later I received an email from Kathryn Gibbs Davis, a well-known author of fiction and nonfiction books for children and young adults. As she explained in her email, a late-night online search for Ferris Wheel-related sites led her to my post, and after she learned that my family had connections to George Ferris (and that both she and I are from Wisconsin), she reached out to say hello.
I was so touched by Ms. Davis' generosity that I decided to pay it forward and purchase a copy of Mr. Ferris and His Wheel to give away to one of you. To enter, share with me - via Facebook, the comments section, or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) a photo of a Ferris Wheel, yourself on a Ferris Wheel, or your kiddos on a Ferris Wheel. I'll select a winner on Monday, September 28th at 9pm CST.
Can't wait to see your photos!
This is not a sponsored post. My children received their books as a gift prior to my decision to write this post, and I purchased the copy of Mr. Ferris for the giveaway.
