Giveaway #300 : Win 3 copies of My School Day - closed - winners Amanda Louise Milton, Tammy Tudor & Louise Fairweather


Children will love to meet Spencer the roller-skating owl, Lydia the shy ladybird, Zippy the squirrel and their other Schoolies friends in this series that will help them learn concepts from ABC to 123, healthy eating to making friends

New for June 2013

From waking up to favourite lessons, the bus ride home to bedtime, kids will love spending a day with the Schoolies!

This brilliant, bright book is packed full of fun activities with lots to look for and do



Includes a clock with moveable hands, so that young readers can turn the hands to the right time as the Schoolies enjoy their day



I've just reviewed some of the Schoolies books and we thought they were great. They're fun, educational and perfect for reassuring young children who are just getting ready to go to school for the first time - although Juliette is 8 and she's still been really enjoying them !

  12. our Daughter was worried about starting school as she said that she didn't know anything! So I told her that she knew lots of things, as an aside I said to her "I bet your teacher can't name all the Beatles, you have for years". On the first day at school, I am talking to the teacher when my Daughter pipes up with "is it now I have to tell the teacher who is in the Beatles?" the teacher looked very surprised. Evidently my Daughter thought that naming the Beatles was an entrance test!

    I remember my daughters first day at college, they where paired up with another class mate, & had to say things about themselves.
    The girl couldn't remember Melissa-Jane's name, but said it was M.J. She is now called by her friends Emjay, but the funny part was she told this girl she had won five World records at Flight Archery over the summer actually on her 18th Birthday, but the girl laughed when she told this fact & no one believed her, she just took them all to the nearest computer & showed them!
