Competition: Win a copy of Bear, Bird and Frog by Gwen Millard

It seems strange saying this, so soon after reading it, but one of our favourite books of 2013 was Bear, Bird and Frog by Gwen Millard. I reviewed it here and since reading it to the children a few times that week, we have read it at least once a week since. It is one of those gentle stories which thanks to some wonderful illustrations has quite a lot of depth and a classic theme which is enjoyed by all three of my children in different ways.

The book is now out in paperback and to celebrate Egmont have really kindly offered me five copies for readers of Being a Mummy. In order to win this lovely children’s book I would love to know what animals do you like to see represented in children’s books. For the record, I like to read my children books featuring cats, not sure what that says about me!
