Lemur Troops Giveaway!

Since I have a few extra copies of Lemur Troops & Critter Groups, I've decided to have a giveaway. I've been meaning to do a blog tour, but at least I can do this for the time being. For those who don't know, Lemur Troops & Critter Groups is my second picture book published by 4RV Publishing. It's a collection of 21 rhymes that teach kids about animal congregations, or group names. It's illustrated by the talented Nikki Shoemaker, and it's the first in a three book series. If you would like to win an autographed copy, there are several ways to enter ...

1. Feature Lemur Troops & Critter Groups on your blog. All you have to do is include the cover picture and a few details. Check here to read more. It's available through my website, 4RV Publishing, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble online. Just remember to send me an email or leave a comment here that you've included it on your blog.

2. Post a review on Amazon for either Lemur Troops & Critter Groups or A New Job for Dilly. Obviously, this is for people who've read one or another. And again, let me know you've left a review so I can include you.

3. For those who don't have blogs and/or haven't read either book to leave a review, there is another way to enter. Simply leave a comment on this blog post and let me know which of these animals is your favorite and why. All of these animals are featured in the book, by the way ...

Lemurs -- Bears -- Cats -- Bees
Foxes -- Whales -- Lions -- Cattle
Swans -- Turtles -- Mice -- Giraffes
Parrots -- Seals -- Gorillas -- Rabbits -- Otters
Snails -- Geese -- Armadillos -- Sheep

So, there you have it -- three ways to enter! If you already have the book, you can still win a copy to give to a friend, give to your child's school, or even to offer as a giveaway for your own blog. The contest will run for a week and I'll post a winner next Monday, March 15th. Thanks and good luck!


  1. Personally, I love the lemurs, especially after Madagascar came out. But I'm going to have to say otters are my favorite on the list. I love sitting in my kayak and watching them play in the ocean.

  2. Aww, this sounds like a great read. I love anything in verse

  3. I would love to have one of your books, but I think it should go to someone with children. It would be selfish of me enter. However I will link to your contest in my sidebar!

    As for my favorite animal...that's hard. I have a fondness for bees, whales, turtles and armadillos.

  4. I would love to win this book! My favorite of these animal would be the cat. That's a no brainer.I have always had cats.Life would feel like something was missing without them. I like the way they purr,trill,and cuddle. They are easy to care for and very entertaining.Perfect little companions.


  5. Hi Rena, I've posted it on my blog. Can you please check it out to make sure you're happy with it :o)

    Don't worry about entering me as living Down Under it might cost a bit in postage :o)

    ps I love otters but since I'm surrounded by pussycats here, I better say CATS!!

  6. Awesome! I'll refrain from the contest since I own a copy already! (but I will feature it when I read it to my daughter's class in a few weeks!)

  7. This book is simply adorable and I would love to have a copy!

    No thought required for your question. Most definitely CATS! I love all animals, but just adore my furry felines!

  8. Hi Rena,

    My website and blog are down for redesign right now, but I'd love to do a review of Lemur Troops (or MM Man or new Dilly books...) when things are up and running. Will let you know when that happens. :o)

  9. I have this amazing book. I don't know why I haven't reviewed in Amazon before this. I'm off to do it now. And since Madagascar is my fav show - I'd have to say the Lemur.

  10. Rena, I did a post about your books today! And I'm giving away a free copy of Dilly - the extra one you sent me! Pass the news around. :)

  11. if you had elephants, they bring me good luck. Whales and dolphins are cool. I have had a wonderful encounter with a dolphin. A dolphin named Dixie. I played basketball with it in Cape Cod.

  12. OH, My 3.5 yos son will love this. And i love to read it for him :)

    my favorite will be cats. I happened to have 12 cats in my house. yeap, just imagine how 'meowing' they are when they're hungry :)

  13. Rena,.. I don't have a blog, but I posted it on my fb. Hope that'll do. ;>D.. What a educational book you wrote! Way to go, Rena! Oh, Kaitlyn said she liked all the animals, esp. sheep because of its softness :)..

  14. What a cool thing to do Rena! I didn't get my copy from Amazon (as you know, so I didn't know I could post a review there) BUT I am going to go try right now AND I am going to say that I am crazy about bears. Polar bears, black bears, brown bears... teddy bears. I think they are all adorable (though I wouldn't try and cuddle the first three!) In your book my kids love the geese page for some reason and I like the gorilla page! :) Now if I had a blog I would post your book but I guess I will settle for 2 entries! lol :)

  15. **I tried to leave a review on Amazon but it says I have to wait 48 hours after my first purchase!** Sorry Rena! I guess only 1 entry for me into your contest after all. lol
