Gift of Books - Giveaway

Hello everyone. I am absolutely blessed to be sent books by Scholastic to review and isn't it just the best thing ever to be able to give some away! Sharing is, of course, caring. Scholastic have released some really beautiful Christmas books this year. Some are more traditional than others so everyone gets a lovely chance to pick a favourite.

Here are my kids with the books that come with a cd. They really enjoy the music and being able to sing along with the story. I recommend if you can get a hold of one with a cd it is well worth it. They just keep playing the cd and even with the instrumental music they can read it themselves. Jay Laga'aia does a wonderful job singing the story in a way that keeps the kids involved.

I'm going to give away these two books. The one above is "One Night" by Penny Matthews and Illustrated by Stephen Michael King. It tells the story of the birth of baby Jesus through the way of the animals. It's very sweet and very easy for your young schooler to read aloud.

This one called "There was an old bloke who swallowed a present" by P.Crumble and Illustrated by Louis Shea is about a bloke who swallows different types of presents. Good fun for the kids and big and bright pictures. I like these ones to teach the kids to name all the pictures on the pages.

Here is their aunty who is very much into her books so much so that her whole bedroom is like a big library. Michael is reading to her and Elijah is waiting his turn and posing.

So, here's the nitty gritty. Just leave a comment telling me what you are giving to kids this Christmas ( I need good ideas) and it's open to everyone. I'll pick out two winners next Tuesday 2nd Dec. so I can send them out on Wednesday.

Thanks everyone, Hope you have a great week!

  1. Hi! First time I've visited your blog. Lovely to have a look around. I'd LOVE to win a copy of One Night as I'm always on the lookout for picture books that tell the Christmas story in a fresh way. This year, my son is getting a guitar for Christmas (SHHH... don't tell him!)
