Win three delightful dragon books about how to behave in big and new situations
Sit down with your little one and read the bestselling ‘When a Dragon…’ books, all about a little dragon facing unsettling things like starting school, visiting friends and welcoming a new baby to the family.

'Why, no! Dragons don't do that!'
We've all been there: confronted with a new situation or one they don't like, your child decides to act up, refuse to cooperate or just generally throws a massive wobbly.
That's what makes Caryl Hart and Rosalind Beardshaw's 'When a Dragon...' books so great – these rhyming picture books are full of recognisable pre-school behaviour. All three – When a Dragon Comes to Stay, When a Dragon Goes to School and, the latest in the series, When a Dragon Meets a Baby – are award-winning gems that look at the confusing and tricky emotions that can bubble up in certain situations. Most children will relate to all or some of the issues in these books, whether it's having to share their toys or be on time for school.
However, in a gentle twist, the adorable dragon in the books doesn't actually do any of the naughty things described and instead does the opposite. It's a lovely, gentle way of nudging children towards certain behaviours or good manners by following the little dragon's example.
Funny and full of heart, all three books could be yours: just answer the question below and leave your details by the closing date of 11pm on Monday 21 June 2021.
