#Win SIGNED copy of Jumblebum by Chae Strathie with the Scottish Friendly Children’s Book Tour

Scottish Book Trust Competition: Jumblebum signed copy giveaway - Closes 29th Sept

The Scottish Friendly Children’s Book Tour has been running since January of this year, when it started in Yorkshire. There were a week of events in the very Northern towns of Sheffield and Hull. An amazing 1,500 kids were able see Jonathan Meres chatting about his “World of Norm” children’s books.

KiddyCharts are pleased to be able to tell all our readers that the tour is continuing into September following the author Chae Strathie visits to Birhgton and Hove in June. Chae’s books include:

Chae Strathie Books: Scottish Book Tour

The aim of the tour is to encourage reading in kids, and also to provide a platform to offer tips to adults when reading with their children. The tour has also seen Children’s Laureate Malore Blackman, and the poet and musician, James Carter, share their stories and experiences with kids in Scotland.

For September, Nicola Davies, the zoologist and illustrator, will be popping into Argyll & Bute to give kids a further buzz. She will now be visiting more schools to help them get their reading boots on, as well as their wellies as autumn approaches!

Nip on over to her page – bet you recognise her? I did, from the Really Wild Show – wonderful TV program, and her books are just as engaging and fun.

To celebrate the tour, KiddyCharts have been lucky enough to get their hands on a signed copy of Jumblebum – something that money really can’t buy. Jumblebum is a wonderful picture book about the perils of not keeping your room tidy…I think perhaps we need to nip off and buy one for my two kids! ;-)

For up to date info on the tour, do check out the Scottish Friendly Facebook page on the events, as well as their Twitter account. They are posting regular photos and some videos to give you tips on encouraging kids to read. Why not check it out?

For a chance to win this charming, and unique prize, then fill out the competition widget below, and you are in with a chance of running off with a signed copy of the book.

The closing date for this competition is September 29th – so come on plenty of time for you to enter, and why not nip over and see what other blog competitions are out there on the internet by using our listings? You can check out our other giveaways on the KiddyCharts site too. If you share the url you are given after entry, and your friends enter, you will get another two entries as well.

My daughters book are accessible in her bedroom and our lounge plus she has lots at my mums too. We have stories at bedtime too. I encourage her to look at the pictures and I'm never too busy if she brings me a book to read.
