Booktime Competition

Nominate your primary school or local library for a chance for them to own an amazing artist's proof from "Slowly, Slowly, Slowly,” Said the Sloth, signed by the author/illustrator Eric Carle.

This fantastic Booktime competition is to celebrate giving away 680,000 free copies of Eric Carle's wonderful picture book, "Slowly, Slowly, Slowly,” Said the Sloth, published by Puffin. It has been organised by the independent charity, Booktrust and sponsored by the Pearson Publishing Group.

Every year Booktime give over a million books away to reception children in schools all over the UK. I remember my own children receiving their Booktrust packs and being thrilled with the beautiful picture books they received.

Anyone can nominate a primary school and/or a public library in England. All you have to do is complete the nomination form on the Booktime website. Nominations opened yesterday, the 6th September and close on the 31st October. Every eligible nomination will be entered into a prize draw and the winners selected at random.

Also in this year’s book packs, is a special abridged edition of the illustrated non-fiction book, Why is the Sky Blue? compiled by Geraldine Taylor, illustrated by Amy Schimler and published by Ladybird. It is good to see non-fiction books being included.
