Scholastic Advent Calendar 24 Book Bundle Giveaway for age 0-7

A Book Advent Calendar is a great way to get into the Christmas mood and spend real quality time with your child doing something they'll remember forever. Forget chocolates and windows, your child can open their imagination every day in the run up to Christmas.

Scholastic have put together 2 fantastic bundles of 24 books for advent 2017 and I'm truly delighted to be able to give away one of each. If you bought all of these books individually then they'd cost over £145rrp, but Scholastic are giving everyone an early Christmas gift and this Advent Pack of 24 books for age 0-7 is available to buy for only £29.99 while stocks last.


Scholastic Books are responsible for my earliest memories of loving books, I waited for the Scholastic Books leaflet each term with a great deal of excitement as I was allowed to choose a brand new book for myself. It gives me great joy to be working with Scholastic on such an awesome Christmas giveaway.


Included in the 0-7 bundle are books by some excellent authors including Nick Sharratt, Julia Donaldson and Mick Inkpen, and it actually includes 2 of my all-time favourite Children's books - Kipper's Christmas Eve and Stick Man.

This giveaway features short stories and picture books for you to read with young children who aren't yet confident reading by themselves. I also have another Advent Bundle Giveaway for older, independent readers - Young Fiction for children aged around 7+.


Advent Bundles aren't Scholastics only book packs - we've written before about the Laugh Out Loud Awards (vote until Dec 8th) and Scholastic have a pack of all 12 Laugh Out Loud Awards (Lollies) finalists for only £24.99 - saving a massive £55 over the rrp.

Scholastic offer all books at discounted prices, and termly book brochures for schools (each sale from those brochures raises money for your school). You can find out more about all of  Scholastic's products and order the 24 book Advent Pack of books for age 0-7 on the Scholastic Website.

Scholastic Books have asked that entrants sign up to their newsletter, so the first and only mandatory entry is to leave your email. It won't be used for anything else or passed on to any 3rd party and you can unsubscribe at any time.

I remember the uneven wooden parquet flooring, leaded light windows, sturdy wooden bookcases, and queuing up to get the books stamped with the return date (no barcode scanners then). I loved that place, and to me that will always be what a good library should look and feel like.
