Book Giveaway: Marcus and the Amazons




Sheron Hamilton-Pearson and JamLink have given me a great idea to run another book giveaway. But this time, I want to include the kids, so I need at least three (3) writing prompts based on some of the themes in Marcus and the Amazons.

If you haven't read Marcus and the Amazons, here are some reviews (consider them to be like e-Cliff's Notes) that may give you some hints for the writing prompts:

Rethabile Masilo of Poefrika has also written an extended review that may also help you to come up with a writing prompt: http://poefrika.blogspot.com/2011/07/marcus-and-amazons-by-geoffrey-philp.html

Finally, here is a list of the subjects covered in Marcus and the Amazons

Ants: etymology; food cultivation, cooperation and competition, relationships with other organisms, and myrmecophily
Black History Month
Civil Rights Movements
Caribbean American
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Non-Violence
Marcus Garvey
Friendship
Animals / Insects, Spiders, etc.
FAMILY & RELATIONSHIPS

I'll be giving away  three (3) FREE Smashwords coupons (say that fast 3 times) for the three (3) winning prompts and you can enter as many prompts as you wish in the Comments section.

I know this should be a breeze, especially for the educators who are on summer vacation.

The Book Giveaway will run from July 1, 2011--July 9, 2011. I will be choosing the winners and the announcement will be posted on July 10, 2011.

The Kids Book Giveaway will run July 11, 2011—July 18, 2011.

Good Luck!
