Over this years pandemic, 2020, while I have been in lockdown each of my children’s picture books have been escaping one at a time with a raffle giveaway.

This time it is the turn of ‘Sparky the Dragon Bus’, together with her 3D bus model. Enter to win!

Sparky was on a blog tour in February with lots of great reviews along the way.

The Real Sparky

The real SparkySparky the Dragon Bus, was a mobile Playbus project in Glasgow which offered play opportunities to disabled children and their families.

It was unique and contained many special features, such as a chairlift from the lower deck, allowing users an access to the upper deck.

What would your perfect Playbus be like inside?

How would you make your Playbus accessible for all?Princess Anne and Sparky

The Bewbush Playbus was the first such mobile in the South-East of england and many people would come to see the bus and copied the ideas themselves.

The Playbus was very popular and especially with children who might be overwhelmed in a large noisy echoing hall.

It provided a calm haven and was like a warm hug inside.

The downstairs was full of messy creative things to do such as ; paint; glue; sand; play dough.

Upstairs children could read books; build with construction toys; dress up; play with cars;  and toys provided.

With the current lockdown and social distancing maybe the Playbus would provide a safe bubble in which to play.

A Playbus story book is the perfect bus ride for 'Lockdown'.

A special journey and Jay-Jay, Daisy Daydream and Gloria are indeed all special too.
