Book Pack Give-away (Closed)


  1. I’d like to win the ‘Baby book pack’ because I have a couple of friends pregnant with their first child and I’d love to promote reading in their families. Books are such a natural part of life for our daughter and I love giving new families books to help them along the path to creating a lifelong love of reading in their children.

  2. I would love to win “baby book pack”, I would love my 18 month old to get it in the mail and have her open the package and say “Books” and i can say yes they are for you, which one would you like to read first!

  3. I’d love to win the toddler book pack – with 3 children under 6, we always appreciate new books.

  4. I would love to win the child book pack. My eldest little man is nearly nine and is reading independently. Having just found a passion for reading novels I’d love to give him a couple of wonderful new books for his birthday! Also my youngest who is 7 loves listening to his big brother read, so there’d be two little men reading together if we won the child book pack! =)

  5. I’d love to win the Baby book pack and I would give them away as gifts for friends as I think books are the best gifts you can give.

  6. Oh we’ve just recently borrowed the Wonky Donkey from the library and loved it! My three year old would be very excited to find that among his Christmas loot!

  7. Toddler Book Pack would be our choice – should we win we would be selfish and keep them for ourselves to enjoy! Matthew loves it when mummy gets “in character” to read him a story. He must think he has a “silly” mummy.

  8. I would love to win the Child Book Pack. My 2 children are aged 7 and 10 and are absolutely addicted to reading books. I just can’t seem to satisfy their appetite enough! We utilise our local library a lot, but they are also excited when I buy them books they can keep forever in their bookshelves. This prize would be simply perfect for Christmas for them!

  9. The Baby Book pack would be fantastic for me to share with my newborn but I think these books would also be enjoyed by my 3 year old. He could then proudly demonstrate his ‘beginner’ reading skills and show off to his little brother!

  10. We’d just love to win the toddler pack as we’re really into our wonky, donkey, snuggle, wuggle – well just about anything that rhymes!

  11. I would choose the tween book pack. My almost 12 year old hasn’t red those and they would make a perfect Christmas present.

  12. I’d like to win the ‘toddler book pack’ because I have a wonderful boy who loves to have stories read to him. I want to encourage his interest in reading. Books were a huge part of my life as a child & I want to instill that same love of reading in my son.

  13. The Tween Book Pack as my daughter and I have our favourites that we sit down together and read and get great enjoyment from and others where we relax side by side on my bed and read our own choices. Spending quiet quality time together is just as important as those other precious moments. A love of reading comes from no pressure and all choice and this pack is the perfect choice for us!

  14. I’d love to win the baby book pack, my one year old just loves to read and you will often find her sitting somewhere quietly just flipping through the pages of her favorite books – it’s such a sweet sight to see and makes me soo happy that she enjoys books that much and I would like to encourage that even more!

  15. I would love the toddler pack as with my little monkey 21months old books are very big in our house and we read the same ones over and over so some new books would be a treat for her and Mummy.

  16. The toddler book pack looks PERFECT. I love nothing better at the end of a long, hard (sometimes challenging) day to snuggle up in bed with my two toddlers and my pre-schooler with a selection of books, (they get to chose one each). It is such a special time of closeness, of sharing ideas, of expanding their little imaginations and broadening their knowledge, and interacting and building their self esteem…not to mention a THE BEST WAY of winding them down after a busy day and sending them off to sleep!

  17. I’d love to win the baby book pack. We love reading to our child, not because it is ‘educationally’ beneficial but because both of us have such warm chilhood memories associated with reading. My favourite memory is listening to my dad read my sister and I a story before we went to bed. My favourite book was (and still is) The Pokey Little Puppy because of the memories associated with hearing my dad read it.

  18. I fancy the toddler pack – 2 books the same age as me! I’d like to take the Wonkey Donkey on a bus trip to the Zoo. It would be so much fun to see the bus drivers face when he sees a big wonkey donkey approaching the doors and imagine the looks we’ll get at the zoo!

  19. I would love to win the Toddler book pack, the most rewarding part of the day is when myself and the 3 kids are all in bed reading books together ,learning, laughing and enjoying every precious moment…..priceless

  20. I would like to win the toddler book pack as my 2yo has already memorised everything from Hairy McLary to the Gruffalo and we can’t wait for the “book fairy” to arrive with some new books to add to our nightly reading ritual at Christmas!

  21. Bring on the Child Book Pack! I have two gorgeous God Sons who are enthralled with reading – they would think that this Santa rocked!

  22. Thank you to everyone that entered this give-away. I wish I had enough books to send to all of you, as you all had wonderful plans for them. Unfortunately there could only be 4 winners this time, but make sure you enter our next comp. The winners are:
