WIN 2 books in the

Silly Places Competition

Here is a fun competition for the kids to do in the summer holidays! Grab a book and take a photo of them when reading it in a silly place, or they may like to take a selfie.

A silly place could be on a trampoline or under a table, or maybe somewhere completely different at a holiday destination.

Find your silly place and start taking photos! It only takes a few moments to take the photo, then upload it to Facebook or Instagram and you could win 2 free children’s books! See the terms and conditions for more information, and how to win on what to do.
