      Its a lovely contest, and I would be very happy and excited to give this to my granddaughter. For the simple reason the books are beautiful and a lovely addition to any young girl's library. and can be kept and passed on, as I did with books of her mother to her. Thanks for the chance.

      I would dearly love to win this package of books. I have a son who is struggling to read because he has dyslexia and a daughter who has Down Syndrome who loves books but we need to keep coming up with new ones and we also have a new grandchild so we would love to start a collection of books to read to her. I enjoy books and it would be great to have this prixe to help build those reading relationships with all three of them. Thanks

      My 2 year old granddaughter lives in Sydney and I live in the UK. I love sending her books but postage was so expensive. now I happily use the Book Depository and can send her all the beautiful Usbourne books which her mum and uncle loved as children. I should love to win this prize so I can share them with her when she visits me. It would be our special link.

      On June 28, 2013 I became a granny, for the first time, to a girl. Though we live miles apart (she in Asia and I in Switzerland) we have started (with the help of her parents) to Skype or FaceTime together. My plan is to read Children's books to her as soon as possible (when we Skype) -- to share my love for books with her besides developing a relationship! You can just imagine what winning some Usborne Books would mean to me and her! Am keeping my fingers crossed! Happy Usborne Day to all! Amelia Huber
