We have our first BINGO, people! A Bingo was posted with the last book cover, I double-checked the card, and yes-indeedy, Susan is a winner! Congratulations, Susan, you are our reigning Queen of Bingo (crown and scepter not included). There are still 14 prizes to be won, so let's keep going and see who will be the next to win. Remember to post BINGO! to my blog if you win. You can email me also, but winner status will be linked to the time you posted on my blog, not when you email me. In the event of multiple winners with one book title, first choice of the prizes will go to whoever posts here on the blog earliest.
Bingo Book #22 is Building on Nature: The Life of Antoni Gaudi by Rachel Rodriguez and illustrated by Julie Paschkis. Building on Nature was recently awarded with the International Reading Association 2010 Children's & Young Adults' Book Award. (Yay, Rachel and Julie!) This picture book is a poetic biography about the life of Spanish architect Antoni Gaudi. This was one imaginative guy--take a look at some of his work (all photo captions link to original photo sources):
