And for parents, there’s always those last-minute gifts and stockings to fill!

With just four weeks to go until the big day, here’s your chance to win a bundle of our must-read kids’ books. There’s something for everyone here, from the laugh outloud Diary of a Wimpy Kid – Old School, to the final Discworld adventure The Shepherd’s Crown. Hetty Feather is back for a musical adventure in Little Stars and Zoe Sugg’s new book Girl Online On Tour is a must read. For those with little ones at home The Rabbit Who Wants to Fall Asleep is the bedtime book parents are talking about – and will help to ensure an easier bedtime.
