International Postcard Swap...

I was waiting for all the cards to arrive before sharing what we got from the International Postcard swap which was hosted by Zoe from Playing By The Book. Some of the cards actually came in envelopes with little gifts or extra letters inside, in fact the first 3 came like that to which I was kicking myself thinking I had missed an email somewhere on what the swap included. We made our postcards from a damaged book,  I cut, Ebi-kun glued, I hope handmade cards were OK, I feel a bit bad about it now.
We did get some good book recommendations 'Orrible histories series is one I think we will have to check out :o) Thank you to all those that sent cards, most didn't have a blog/email/address of any kind so I can't thank them in person.

I also have to give Zoe a big thank you for the books that she sent as prizes to her blog contest that we won. The first was Three Cheers For Inventors, this is a fantastic book, jam packed with information and Ebi-kun LOVES it. We have been reading an inventor a day before yochien, it is written in a fun and humorous way and lots of attention to detail.

 The other book was The Planet Gods, which is beautifully illustrated, we haven't sat and read this one yet, we are saving it for when we study planets, Ebi-kun did sit for a long time looking at all the pictures. If you are looking for a good deal when buying books, I have to recommend The Book Depository, it is quick and it has FREE international shipping, yes, I know, I sound like a broken record but there are new readers who might not know about this :o) PLUS there prices are often cheaper than Amazon!
