HarperCollins Children's Books are celebrating the publication of Bing: Get Dressed. It's the first in a fabby new picture book series from Ted Dewan celebrating life as a toddler, life with a toddler, and all the ups and downs of everyday life.

In the first Bing picture book, clever Bing has mastered putting on his clothes (with a little help from his constant companion Flop), but he's struggling with the right order. Sound familiar?

To be in with the chance to win a £100 library of children's books and one of 10 Bing goody bags, take a photo of your DS or DD getting things slightly wrong and upload it to this thread, along with a short caption.

Post your pics plus caption before the end of 30 August and we'll then create a carousel of our favourite 10 pics. Each person who makes the shortlist of 10 will receive a Bing goodie bag, including a copy of Bing: Get Dressed.

Author Ted Dewan will then choose a winning photo from the 10 and we'll announce the winner on Friday 6 September. The winner will receive a £100 library of children's books from HarperCollins.

About the books

Ted Dewan has created a series that focuses on the dynamic between toddler and parent, and that speaks to them both equally, about life as a toddler and life with a toddler. With short, repetitive texts, bold, bright artwork and appealing characters, Bing offers both parent and child an enjoyable reading experience and a simple, reassuring guiding principle - that, whatever happens, it's just a Bing thing, a normal occurrence, and nothing to get upset about.

All entries must be posted by Friday 30 August.

I think DD was trying to look like mummy although I do try to wear my glasses the right way up and put my feet in the right shoes generally!

Her outfit of choice for a visit to the supermarket!

'Ninja Ballerina', my DD's take on getting ready for the day ahead. She loves nothing more than dressing up with her own special take on it.

Skirt-hats: the latest fashion

DD at 20 months being very stubborn determined to dress herself. Wouldn't accept any help from Mummy, not even where to wear a skirt!

Goggles and Giggles! My little girl found the swim goggles and decided to put them on whilst wearing her best party frock, then proceeded to say 'plash''plash' (her word for splash splash). Not the best time to wear goggles - to go to a party!

Wooly Hat for bed in the middle of Summer!

Ivy (22 months) uses her skirt as a rather fetching shrug!

MrsNicklin14 Fri 30-Aug-13 14:14:08

Ivy's shoes, mummy!

When my husband saw this pic he said "If she'd asked for a pony, I'd have bought her a stable full"

Ivy 23 months

DD told me I look like Snow White... I asked her if this is because I am beautiful?
No, she answered, it's because you married Prince Charming.

I cant seem to move off the first picture in the carousel, is it okay for everyone else?

RachelMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 05-Sep-13 10:13:57

Apologies we had a glitch with the link. I've amended - try this now:

RachelMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 10-Sep-13 11:27:20

And the winner is [drumroll...] CharleyMouse for her wonderful pic of DD putting on her PJs. We'll be in touch with details of how to claim your prize.

Charleymouse Tue 10-Sep-13 11:43:52

Thank you so much Mumsnet and Ted Dewan.

DD thought this was hilarious when I had asked her to put her PJs on for bedtime.

I am ridiculously excited to be getting some new books.
Many many thanks

A worthy winner! Charley's photo definitely got the biggest laugh in this house grin

Thank you for the goody bag, MNHQ, it arrived this morning and it's great smile

Charleymouse Wed 11-Sep-13 16:48:25

Thank-you Poppanicolino, I have to say your DDs use of sellotape nose did make me giggle, along with the image of you having to climb up her hair!

Looking forward to getting home to see if my goody bag has arrived. grin
