Alphablocks Reading Programme giveaway (c/d 3 January 2014)



Eddie enjoys learning his letters, and though he is still mixing up his Bs and Ds, Ms and Ns, he is enthusiastic and willing to learn, and that's what matters at this stage. His reading might not be perfect, but he's only 4, and he will get there. I know some of the children in his class are more fluent readers, some are less, and we, parents, should do our best to encourage our little ones in this big adventure. If teaching your child to read sounds a bit daunting, there is a very helpful educational tool called Alphablocks.
You might already know about it, if your children watch Aphablocks on TV. But there is also a fantastic Alphablocks Reading Programme available for foundation-aged children, which helps them to develop and progress with their reading skills.



We recently received part I of the reading programme, and have had hours of great fun, going through educational activity-packed magazines and playing with all the extras like stickers, letter tiles, flash cards and finger puppets. You can discover more about the programme, if you read my review of Alphablocks Reading Programme.
Kind people at Alphablocks have offered two Reading packages as prizes for my blog readers.
There will be two lucky winners who will receive a complete Alphablocks Reading Programme (usually worth £39.99 plus P&P).



To be in with a chance of winning, please enter the giveaway via Rafflecopter gadget.

T&Cs:
Only the first step is mandatory: all you need is answer the question by leaving a comment (if you login as Anonymous, please leave you Twitter name or Facebook name, so that I could identify you, I do not suggest leaving the email address in the comment)
All the other steps are optional, you don't have to do them all. All it takes to win is just one entry. 
Only one entry per person is allowed (however, you can tweet daily to increase your chances). 
The giveaway is open to the UK residents only. Once the Rafflecopter picks the winners, I will check if they have done what was requested. I will contact the winners, if they do not reply within 28 days, the prize will be allocated to another person. I will pass on the winner's' details to Alphablocks PR who will dispatch the prizes. 
The giveaway ends on 3 January 2015 (midnight).

Good luck!
