Scholastic Advent Young Fiction (Age 7-11) 24 Book Bundle Giveaway

A Book Advent Calendar is a genius idea and something I wish I'd thought of years ago. Opening a new book each day during December with your children will create fabulous warm memories that you'll all remember forever.

This year Scholastic Books have put together 2 fantastic Advent Calendar Bundles and I'm delighted to be giving one of each away. Both bundles contain 24 specially chosen books and have an rrp of over £145 - but while stocks last they'll be on sale for only £29.99 for the pack.


Over 90 years after they started, Scholastic are still bringing great literature to children and this bundle of 24 Young Fiction books for younger independent readers aged around 7-11 contains some real gems.


Sherlock Holmes, Horrid Henry, The Wind In The Willows, The Railway Children and The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe. They are true classics and your child won't be likely to read any in one day, this is a pack that will probably last them several months.

If you have any younger children who aren't yet confident readers, I also have an advent bundle giveaway with books more suitable for children 0-7, you can find the 0-7 Scholastic Books 24 book bundle giveaway here...

To get your child into the spirit, this 7-11 young fiction bundle features lots of Winter and snow and there's no shortage of Christmas magic. There is even a copy of one of my favourite books of all time, Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. It's a really short story and one that we all know, but not everyone has read the book. I'm going to introduce my 9 year old to the print copy this December...


Don't forget the Laugh Out Loud Awards (The Lollies) are still open for voting until December 8th - Scholastic have put together a bundle of all 12 finalists and you can find out more about the Lollies in my My Gym Teacher Is An Alien Overlord post.

The Scholastic 24 book Advent Pack of Young Fiction picked for children age 7-11 is available to buy now while stocks last from the Scholastic website priced a mere £29.99. It's a fabulous addition to any bookcase.


For your chance to win this amazing Advent Bundle for children around age 7-11 and bring all of that magic and adventure into your child's life, enter using the Rafflecopter form below. 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. You can unsubscribe at any time.

Entry to the giveaway is open to UK entrants only and it will end at midnight Sunday 26th November so that you can receive your books in time for the beginning of advent - I ask that the winner gets back to me asap though!  Full terms and conditions are on the Rafflecopter form.

  2. I love 'Stella: Queen of the Snow' by Marie-Louise Gay. It is based on a little boy named Sam who has never seen snow before. So when the first snowstorm of the season arrives, Sam has lots of great questions about snow, and Sam’s older sister Stella has lots of entertaining answers! It is sweet and funny and my kids love it!
