My Stinky New School Giveaway

Edit this post
September is a hard month for most parents because it's the start of a new school year. Whether your child is starting a new nursery, school or even just moving up a year it can be tough. I always remember preparing big J for nursery and also preparing myself because my little boy wouldn't be with me anymore.

We talked about it and also read books that were designed to help our children understand that starting school is a good thing and they will make lots of friends.

We have been reading My Stinky New School by Rebecca Elliott and it would be a perfect read for those who have children who are a little unsure about what a new school will bring.
Toby's sister and baby brother love their schools - they smell of paint and rainbows. Toby doesn't think he likes his new school at all - it smells of ogres and he's lonely. He looks and looks for friends but he can't find any anywhere. He finds an alien, a mermaid, a dinosaur expert and a pirate, but no friends! When his mum comes to pick him up he tells her the sad news - but if he didn't make any friends then who is in the playground waving at him..?

It really is a lovely book and I know any little boy or girl out there who is nervous about their first day but really enjoy it. The hardback edition is perfect for little hands and the illustrations are eye catching and fun.

Rebecca Elliott's charming Toby books help children deal with new and unfamiliar circumstances. In Mr Super Poopy Pants, Toby got used to the idea of having a new baby brother; in Missing Jack he had to come to terms with the death of his pet cat. Now Rebecca is showing that going to school isn't quite as scary as you might think, using her unique sense of humour and style to create a warm and comforting picture book, which is quirky and funny at the same time.

If you would like to win a copy of My Stinky New School and also a copy of Rebecca Elliott's Missing Jack just answer this very simple question.

Q: Tell me one of your school memories?
