Win one of 2 Bedtime Story Collections for World Book Day

I am sure many of us have been involved in World Book Day activities, desperately trying to find an interesting costume for our children to dress up as.  Luckily mine have always come up with fairly simple ideas including Pippi Longstocking and Clarice Bean but when they decide they want to be the Gruffalo it becomes more of a challenge.

To take some of the stress away I am giving away 2 hardbacked bedtime story collections.  Each contains 4 picture book stories to read with young children (approx aged 6 and under).

To enter simply post a comment about the costumes you have created for world book day or if you haven’t had to do this yet your child’s favourite book character.  2 winners will be drawn at random at 11.59 on 1st March.

Terms and Conditions

  • Only available to UK resisdents
  • Only one entry per person
  • Winners will be notified by email and names published on this post on 2nd March.

Congratulations to the winners Emma Howard and Emma Kinsey
