The 2014 Scottish Friendly Children’s Book Tour kicked off with award winning Jonathan Meres in January. During June the tour travelled to the (relatively) burning hot beaches Brighton and Hove with award-winning Scottish picture book author Chae Strathie. The book tour (organised by Scottish Book Trust) takes the very best UK and international authors directly into schools across Scotland and the UK to inspire a love of reading, writing and illustration. Up next is the fantastic zoologist and children’s author Nicola Davies. She will be visiting Argyll & Bute this September to inspire and excite pupils.

To celebrate the book tour, I have one signed copy of Bedtime for Tiny Mouse to give away to a lucky In The Playroom reader!

chaestrathieChae Strathie has written many picture books for children including Loon on the Moon and Jumblebum as well as Bedtime for Tiny Mouse.

chaestrathie2Bedtime for Tiny Mouse is charming story about a little mouse who can’t get to sleep, which makes perfect bedtime reading for the under 5s.

Tiny Mouse is wide awake. He curls and twirls, he flips and flops, and he snuggles and huggles – but still he can’t sleep. His dad gives him a cup of warm milk, his mum tells him to try counting sheep, and even his big brother Milo has some advice… but nothing works, and Tiny Mouse is still wide awake. Luckily his Grandma knows just how to help soothe him to sleep… This soft, sweet picture book is ideal for sharing with little ones – and is the perfect addition to a soothing bedtime routine which will help them sleep soundly.

Bedtime for Tiny Mouse is available from good book shops including Amazon (affiliate)
