Starting in the Daily Mirror and Sunday Mirror this weekend, choose from 150 amazing titles!

It is a tough time for everyone right now and we here at the Daily Mirror are constantly looking for ways in which we can help our readers and their families cope as the cutbacks impact on their lives. One of our key concerns is that whatever funding restraints are implemented, children should not be denied access to the resources that are vital for their education. So we're got an amazing offer to make sure your children get off the best start when it comes to reading!

Simply start collecting vouchers we'll be printing in the Daily Mirror and Sunday Mirror. For every two that are collected, you can claim a free book from a fantastic choice of 150 Ladybird titles. You'll just need to pay for the postage.

You can claim up to 25 brilliant books per household. From early years books on the alphabet and numbers, classic fairytales, read-along stories, grammar support and even factual books on dinosaurs and bugs, there are books for children as young as one through to seven years old. You just need to collect two tokens per book.

BOOKS FOR SCHOOLS
And that's not all, schools can get all 150 books! Any schools that want to take part can simply download an order form by clicking on the relevant link below. The offer is the same, but schools can collect a huge library of 150 books to help kids learn to read.

books listed here- great deal - thanks

books -

Does anyone know how much they are charging for postage?

According to MSE...

50p for one book up to £11.94 for all 150 books

Looks like they are routinely £2.99 from Smiths - so at approx £1.50 per book looks a good deal.

Assuming the tokens aren't numbered (as there isn't enough days to collect 50 tokens @ 1 per day) you could just buy 50 copies of the Mirror on the first weekday and have done with it, and if the p&p is the same as for schools (£4.42 for 25 books) it works out a total cost of £1.08 per book inc p&p (£26.92 in total)

As long as one of the bargain book websites doesn't do a big set of these cheaper then it looks like it's a wicked deal!

I thought the postage was 50p a book?

I got the impression it's 50p for one book and uses a staggered scale for more. Otherwise you'd be paying £12.50 postage for 25 books which would be a bit excessive!

Fingers crossed they will be with us some time this week guys....if not it looks like the start of chasing phone calls and emails!! Just wondered if anyone cheques had been cashed - I have four cheque book accounts and cant remember which one I wrote it from so I could look back and see whether mine had been cashed or not Doh!!!

Hi all - I just wanted to let you know that i have called today to chase. They are running exactly 2 weeks behind on orders due to demand so therefore the cut off date will be two weeks from the original date...........fingers crossed!!!
