There are 101 reasons to share a book with your young child, and Bluey is one of them!

This bouncy Blue Heeler is entertaining kids around the world, and her simple tales of family fun teach littles ones a lot about imagination, resilience, kindness and humour.

To keep you up to speed with this energetic six-year-old and her furry family, we’ve rounded up some inside info about the Bluey books and are handing over 6 paw-fect prize packs.

First, though, what are the benefits of these books?

Storytime is a chance for parents to bond with children, have a giggle and explore new ideas and vocabulary. There are lots of old faves to explore, but if you’re looking for a guaranteed crowd-pleaser, you can’t go past Bluey!

The little dog is a BIG hit with under fives, and the Bluey books are a great way to encourage reading and learning at home because they’re full of characters your child loves and words they’ll get to know.

There are lots of titles to read and re-read together, with board books for toddlers and preschoolers, and activity books full of fun things to colour and stick. There’s also a range of free printables  from Bluey: Big Backyard to help young children improve their motor skills, practice their hand-writing, stay focused, relax and tap into their creativity as they colour-in.
