Fearne Cotton and Laura Hamilton will be amongst the judges judging the entries. As well as representatives from The Book People, Little Tiger Press, Ada Grey and an ambassador from Action for Children. That’s not all, the judging panel will choose five shortlisted entrants to attend a very cool event in London on 3rd November, where the winner will be announced. The winner will also receive £250 in books for themselves and £250 for their school. I bet they’d be popular with the teachers for this. You child still has plenty of time to enter submit their story online by 24th October.
It’s a great way to encourage your child’s imagination, writing skills and love of a good story. Don’t forget to keep reading and fuelling their imagination with bedtime stories. We love The Book People and get a lot of great books from them. My oldest Lucas is also enjoying his first taste of audio books and listening to the Michael Morpurgo books. These are a lovely set from The Book People and my youngest boy Tyler is enjoying the Roald Dahl collection. Books are something I love getting as gifts too, you really can never have too many books.
What are your reading habits? And I’d love to know your thoughts on reading to or with older children? And what books your children love? I’m always on the look out for a good book.
Disclaimer:- I was sent some lovely book sets from The Book People, but I was under no obligation to mention this, I just think it’s a great competition and I love books.
