Children's Book Week Giveaway Hop 2016 | Hosted by Wishful Endings

I am really excited to be participating in this years giveaway hop which celebrates Children’s Book Week.

My love of books began as a child.  I have many many wonderful memories of my times reading and visiting the library during my childhood.  Wait a minute, that was just yesterday!  ;o)  I am still making those memories.

One of the things that I love about books is that you can learn so many wonderful things.  I love to learn new things, don’t you?

That love of learning and of reading is what prompted me to write my pictorial series for children which is about military aircraft.  My first book in that series, and the one closest to my heart, is the one that I am going to share with the winner of this giveaway:  This Is The C-130 Hercules.

Giveaway celebrating Children's Book Week: This is the C-130 Hercules by Loraine Nunley

My husband was a Loadmaster on a C-130 and when I was looking for a way to share his love of that aircraft with our children, I decided to write a book about it.  What a fascinating machine!  The whole process was so exciting that I immediately looked at other military aircraft that I could highlight the same way.  Thus began a whole series.

Each book takes the reader through the different parts of the aircraft and what it is used for.  It does this through wonderful color pictures.

As a bonus, the pictorial prelude to my book series, These Are Military Aircraft, will be free on the Kindle from May 4, 2016 – May 8, 2016.  You can check that out here.  (Don’t forget to check the pricing before you download.)
