Attention, everyone: this week is VERY important. Apparently, it’s National Dance Week, Air Conditioning Appreciation Week, and National Aviation Week. But most importantly, this week marks Kidsmomo’s one-year anniversary!

Now, normally you guys would owe us presents, but we’ve decided to count all the book reviews, stories, and comments that you’ve contributed over the last year as your gifts to us. So guess what — we’ve decided to give you a present for our birthday!
Announcing our Birthday Bash Book Giveaway! (Sadly, we couldn’t think of a word for “Giveaway” that starts with a B.) To celebrate the first 12 months of Kidsmomo’s life, we’ve rounded up 12 books that we’ve recommended over the last year — and we put together two sweet prize packs (if we do say so ourselves). This week also happens to be Weird Contest Week, so we guess it’s only fitting.
