20 June is World Refugee Day, and to mark the day we're giving you the chance to win a beautiful book that could help you talk to children about refugees' experiences.

Saving the Butterfly is all about a brother and a sister trying to settle in a new home, but while the little boy makes new friends and quickly learns to laugh again, his older sister hides away in their house, haunted by the shadows of their past.

Hoping to help, the brother catches a beautiful butterfly for his sister and brings it inside the house. His sister knows she needs to set it free - but that means going outside. Can she face her fears and save the butterfly... and herself?

This poetic and powerful story from Helen Cooper is accompanied by stunning illustrations from Gill Smith and could really help to open up conversations about people who are forced to flee their homes.

We have five copies of this special book to give away, so if you'd like to win one, simply answer the question below and leave your details before the closing date of 11pm on Monday, 18 July.
