Win a selection of christmas children's books for xmas


A few days ago I posted about how I was making a Christmas Book Advent Calendar for Finlay this year. Last year we had bought him a Toy advent calendar to go alongside his chocolate one. This year however I wanted something a little bit different. Actually I decided early on in the year and began my planning early. Now planning and oragnising are not the same thing as I had totally forgot what books I had already bought and also how many I needed. So I have ended up with 5 books the same and 5 too many! Not so great for me, but excellent for you. I have decided to run a little giveaway for you with these books as the prize.


They will make a lovely little present on xmas day. Otherwise you could pop them in your Xmas eve Box, or have a mini Book advent counting down the last five days until xmas. If all else fails, put them away for next years book advent!! So what can you win?
