We're delighted to announce our My First Poem 2016 winner as Amberley Hall Nursery in Bristol, who've been awarded the £1,000 first prize to spend on their garden and purchasing outdoor toys for their children.
As we received hundreds of requests to win the money, picking one winner was much harder than we ever thought it would be. It was a real team effort; editors, typists, customer services and directors read the letters. We couldn't pick just one winner, so decided to award several more smaller prizes too!
We'd like to say a HUGE thank you to Walker Books, Bonnier Publishing and Harper Collins for being Lending Library sponsors to three settings. The brilliant sponsors have kindly provided the nurseries with books to start their own libraries!
Thank you so much to every setting who entered, we hope you enjoyed taking part and we look forward to hearing from you in 2017.
Three settings told us they'd spend the £1,000 prize money on setting up a lending library. Walker Books, Bonnier Publishers and Harper Collins have each sponsored a setting and sent them books to help kick-start the lending library projects!
