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.

    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!).

  6. Anne Graham says:

    ‘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.
