Booktime and Eric Carle Prize Draw

I’m so excited – today is the day that we launch Booktime’s Eric Carle prize draw – I’ve known about this for some time as I’ve had the pleasure of working on the campaign so it’s brilliant to finally be able to share what is an amazing opportunity for primary schools and libraries in England.

This autumn, 680,000 copies of Eric Carle’s wonderful story book “Slowly, Slowly, Slowly,” Said the Sloth will be given to reception age children in England, as a gift from independent charity Booktrust and Pearson, the world’s leading education and technology company.

To celebrate, Booktime are offering primary schools and libraries in England the chance to enter a prize draw to receive an exclusive artist’s proof from the book. Each vibrant, colourful spread from the book is signed by Eric Carle himself.

Anyone can nominate any one primary school and one public library in England. (For full terms and conditions, please visit our website). To fill out your nomination, please visit the Booktime website at

We’ve a whole host of fantastic bloggers spreading the word about this brilliant campaign so a huge thanks to everybody who is taking part. Just some of the posts that I’ve already had a chance to read are:

Playing by the Book

A Mother’s Ramblings

Library Mice

Achuka blog

The Booktime blog (of course)

  1. Hi Natasha, Thanks for stopping by NurtureStore – it’s great to link up with you. My youngest has just started reception so looks like we’ll be getting a treat this year too!

      That’s great that your daughter’s starting reception. She’ll definitely be getting a Booktime pack. There are two books this year as you probably know. Slowly, Slowl, Slowly and Why is the Sky Blue? They are both really lovely titles. She should have lots of fun with them at school too as we’ve devised some really good activities and games this year. Thanks so much for your post and for stopping by.

      Thank you! Just seen it and it’s great. Doesn’t matter about being late, we are trying to keep people interested after the initial push so it is helping to have some posts a bit more spaced out. We are all well… Milo had yet another trip into hospital over the weekend with his breathing but is much, much better now. Hope you guys are well. x
