Giveaway: When it Snows

Aaah here is a lovely book just in time for Christmas and Winter: When it Snows by Richard Collingridge.

A magical story about snow, snow queens and elves. A little boy doesn’t let the snow get the better of his day and goes off on an adventure.

A lovely ending to the story reveals all – by a cosy fire a small boy is lost in his own little world.

  1. Sometimes I like to curl up in a ball by V Churchill and illustrated by C Fuge as little wombat is in Australia so lovely and warm (unlike Scotland which is normally wet and very windy!).

  2. ‘When it snows’ sounds like the perfect winter read for my two girls. They (maybe me even more!) love their bed time stories and this would be a great addition to their growing collection of treasured books. I’ve had a sneaky peak inside and it looks beautiful too. We would be very grateful recipients of this delightful book. Thank you.

  3. “When It Snows” sounds wonderful. One of my favourite children’s picture books is the Gruffalo, and also love Paddington :)

  4. for me its……’dancing tiger’ and ‘The snail and the whale’….I know them off by heart.Time for a change I think and this looks great!

  5. I would escape to ‘The Lion the witch and the wardrobe’ and have an adventure, but I need to home in time for dinner ; )

  6. The Snowman – I used to read this book every winter and play the record (yes record lol) , I have continued to read this to my children so they can learn to love it as much as I do.

  7. I’d Like to escape to the wonderful world of Allen Ahlbergs – ‘The Woman who won things’ – at least then I wouldn’t face the dreaded January Credit Card Bill landing on my mat – also My kids love Horace!!

  8. I’d like to escape into Percy The Park Keeper’s Book (Nick Butterworth); Percy lives in a shed in the park and, when it snows, all the animals come to Percy’s shed to get out of the cold, they all end up sharing his bed and Percy ends up on the floor. I’d love to share Percy’s shed, he has hot chocolate and biscuits too.

  9. I’ve always loved ‘The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe’ by C.S.Lewis. I would love to escape into the world of Narnia and have tea with Mr.Tumnus.

  10. Roald Dahls – Charlie & The Chocolate Factory. Im sure it would be warm in there and I find the winter makes me terrible for eating chocolate so it would be a perfect location for me!

  11. The Night Before Christmas by Clements C. Moore. There’d be nothing as magical as seeing Santa and his reindeers do their work on Christmas Eve.
