Day FOUR in #BackToSchoolBooks – and this one’s got a gorgeous hint of childhood retro about it.
iSPY books – remember them? They were an ever-present staple on long car journeys, weren’t they? I never did finish the British Birds – it took me until I was 36 to see my first Kingfisher!
But don’t underestimate these little books and their simple power. A few years ago I produced a couple on a long drive through France, just for five minutes fun, as clearly teen and pre-teen kids were too old for them. Ha. That drive to be the first to spot a Dacia on the autoroute became ridiculously competitive, and the sheer triumph of being the one to find an Audi R8… In our kids’ digital society I find that these low-tech and simple little books still hold a fascination – and build a healthy competitive streak too!
And the new ones have a new format which means it’s not just about the physical spot-it-and-tick. They’re packed with cool facts, and there’s even a points system for easy to hard finds (totally helps those back seat competitions to be more fair when you can track a decent score).
So Day Four in #BackToSchoolBooks brings you the chance to win a set of TEN iSPY books – plus a fabulous pair of junior binoculars to help them in their spotting (it’s not all car journeys obviously. There’s such a massive range of books, from creepy crawlies to London to the night sky).
How to win this brilliant spotters bundle, that’s the question. Easy! Just use the box below to enter – closing date is the 15th of September, and first name out of the cyber hat wins. Once you’ve entered, make sure you go back and enter the earlier days if you missed them – and stick around, we’re here all week ;)
