GIVEAWAY - Baby's Very First Touchy-Feely Christmas Book


The good people at Usborne sent me a copy of Baby's Very First Touchy-Feely Christmas Book. At first I was going to let Mr G have a look, but he has a whole stack of Usborne 'That's not my...' books, which at the moment he likes to pile up and stand on to try and escape his cot.  So on health and safety grounds I am going to share the magic and give it away.

When he is not using them as an escape mechanism, Mr G still loves his Usborne books.  They have mouse on every page and he likes to tickle me and try to say 'where's the mouse', just as I have done, every night since he was about 5 months old.  I am trying to encourage him to enjoy books with a few more words.  He's just not a baby anymore 'big sigh'.  Usborne do have a whole host of  'Christmas Crackers' for children of all ages.  I like the sound of 1000 Christmas Stickers for Miss L and Noisy Touchy Feely Santa for Mr G.

Baby's Very First Touchy-Feely Christmas Book has all the familiar Usborne baby book traits of big pictures, lots of colour, high contrast, things you can touch, with the added loveliness of Christmas.   In the midst of the toy overload that is Christmas, I think books make excellent presents.

I have 'interesting' memories of my two's first Christmases, Miss L raged all day at being taken away from home, passed round the family and surrounded by chaos.  Mr G slept all day and missed most of his.  However, both received Usbourne board books amongst their first Christmas presents, which have given us many happy memories. 

Do you know a new baby who would like this for Christmas?  To enter please follow my blog and leave a comment below.  Miss L will do the draw on Weds 1st Dec.

For extra entries you can:
  • Follow me on twitter @Aresidence (one extra entry)
  • Tweet something along the lines of 'I have entered the @Usborne baby book giveaway @Aresidence http://t.co/3Uvs5jO' (up to three entries, 1 per tweet)
And please take more photos than I did of baby's first Christmas.  I thought I had loads... 

Mr G's first Christmas - one is not amused at being awake

Miss L's first Christmas - 'Grandad it's a madhouse in there!'
This is a sponsored post...but Usborne is a tried and tested brand in our house.

Great reminder about taking lots of photos. We only have video of Z's first xmas and it's still in the camera - must get it on to the computer and recover some memories!

I'm ashamed to say we don't own a single Usborne book and my little one is 8 months old so we'd love to win this.
