**This giveaway is now closed. It was won by No. 48, Emma Walters **



Another lovely giveaway today as part of my celebrations for Picture Book Month! Today’s topic is Around the World and here’s what you could win:


The bundle contains one copy of each of the following:

  • Ebele’s Favourite: A Book of African Games by Ifeoma Onyefulu
  • Yikang’s Day: From Dawn to Dusk in a Chinese City by Sungwan So
  • J is for Jamaica by Benjamin Zephaniah and Prodeepta Das

  • These are three fascinating books which give an insight into children’s lives in very different parts of the world. Ebele’s Favourite includes descriptions of 10 traditional Nigerian games. Yikang’s Day is part of the series A Child’s Day, photographic information books concentrating on the daily lives and experiences of children in countries around the world, published in association with Oxfam. J is for Jamaica is a rhyming introduction to life on this Caribbean island. All are great for widening horizons and would be lovely to share at home as well as in schools.

    The giveaway is open worldwide.
