Auto B Good Giveaway

Today I'm celebrating the end of Character Counts! week by sharing good news about a new product on the market that's near and dear to my heart... 
Enter Auto B Good!

I helped edit the book series a few years back.

When I first saw an episode of the clever character escapades of the cars from Auto B Good at a character conference up in Dallas many years ago, it was love at first sight. I'd been searching for a product that we could use to show during lunch on Feature Film Fridays, and this was it! Three of these ten-minute clips gave our kids engaging food for thought to strengthen their character muscles during their thirty-minute lunch. So you can imagine my delight when I was invited to join the Auto B Good team as an author and script 120 of the 180 enrichment activities for Character Counts! Edition this past summer. I spent the months of June and July using my English major to create at the computer and now, the DVD-ROM is ready to go. 
Click {here} for a sample clip and click the graphic below for more information on the SMART-Board ready enrichment printables:



Since I wrote many of the LA and character exercises and have a comp copy or two coming my way, I'm giving one away! Just leave a comment on this post between now and Tuesday, October 30th at 6 pm central, then check back on Halloween when we announce the winning entry, randomly selected from all of your comments and reflections.

Sing it with me: 
You ought to know . . . you Auto B Good!

This giveaway is now closed; thank you to all of you for your kind reflections and words of affirmation!

  4. We would love to have the complete series! Found a couple at a book fair last year and they are perfect for our school because our motto is "Jean Vanier...a Great Place to Be.....Where Character Counts!"
    Jean Vanier is the name of the school, named after a wonderful man who believes in integration of all students in one building, one community.

  5. I would love to have the complete set. Was able to find a few last year at a Christian book fair. Our school, Jean Vanier Catholic in Alberta, Canada is dedicated to ensuring that all students are included in the classroom, no matter what their disability is. Our motto is "Jean Vanier, A Great Place to Be....Where Character Counts!"

  10. My own boys loved Auto B. Good when they were younger (and it used to be on PBS!) What I like most about it is the cars...boys love cars! so they were naturally interested in it and of course the great morals taught in each episode resonated with them. It's exciting to see that you were a contributor (but not surprising!) Now I have the theme song stuck in my head! :)
