Giveaway: Grace Hester Designs Poster!

**Update 10/17/10: congrats Jenny Rebecca who is the winner of this contest. Post announcing winner is here.  Thanks for your interest!***

Hurrah! Hurrah! We have a humdinger of a grand giveaway for you, my friends!

A gorgeous post from Grace Hester Designs!  Our gal, Grace is kind enough to give away a customized “Print for a Little Reader” poster (11 X 14).  The giveaway winner can go with the titles shown or provide their own list for a personalized print for their own little boo.  Oh, how great is that–to do a personalized one! List out those books that you’ve read HUNDREDS of times until the edges are frayed and the binding hopelessly broken in.  Such a great childhood keepsake, if you ask me. And Grace will even let you pick out the colors so they’ll match your nursery to boot. Way to be a rockstar, Grace!

Grace was inspired by her sweet daughters’ current and all-time favourite reads and designed this poster that lists the titles in different typefaces. What a great way to encourage an appreciation for typography to our children.   All materials used are archival-safe. Print is made on archival-quality photographic paper with a lustre finish that really allows the vibrancy of the colors to show. The choice of materials also makes this a keepsake that can be passed down through the years.

Isn’t that poster just the dandiest?  Oh, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg of all the goodness that is Grace Hester. The artsy lady’s fabulous work has been feature all over the Web on Ohdeedoh, CoolMomPicks, and oodles of other places in the know.  Here is a wee sample of her other goodies she has available in her Etsy store. Prepare to be awestruck, folks.

I know right? Adorable.  Really, you should go check out Grace’s Etsy shop right now. I’ll wait…

OK, now how to get this wonderful one of a kind poster, you can:

  1. Leave a comment (natch) and tell us about your favorite children’s book!

  3. Graces prints are darling! My girl is quite the reader so this is right up her alley! Our current favorite is Mr. Brown Can Moo because of all the sounds my girl makes for the animals.

  4. hello! love the prints! it’s hard to choose a favorite book, but my 5 yr old son is into the Skippyjon Jones series right now. i’m especially loving reading anything by Oliver Jeffers to him 🙂

    my (almost 1 yr old — she turns 1 this sunday!) daughter always reaches for Where is Baby’s Belly Button.

  5. Ohh, I am going to order my kids a Christmas present ASAP. How cool.

    We read some favorites tonight–Amazing Grace , The Story of Ping, and (groan) Walter the Farting Dog.

  6. My son’s favorite book is Goodnight Moon. He is one and loves to spot the cats on the random pages! So cute! Would love to win this print! Such a nice idea!

  7. My favourite book was “Little Cloud”… when I got married I found a copy in my husband’s baby box. Now we have two! Apparently it was his fav book too, even though he’s five yrs older than me. We now read it to our daughter!

  8. I absolutely love Grace’s sweet and simple designs! They are beautiful. My little boy would be so excited to see a “fun list” of his favorite books displayed on his bedroom wall. My whole family LOVES “The Giving Tree” by Shel Silverstein.

  9. Ooo! Love this giveaway!
    My fav children’s book is “I Love You Through and Through” mostly because I LOVE how happy it makes my son, and its adorable!
    I also..Liked this post, and joined Grace Hester’s Fbook page.

  10. Our favorite kids books are the Katie Morag series, we own them all and read at least one of them eat day, their house is dirty, the mom breast feeds, she looses her temper and Katie miss behaves contstantly – we love it! This is real live, but in rural Scotland – you HAVE to read it with a accent, can’t get more fun than that 🙂
