Details

I provide fun, stimulating literacy days for nursery, infant and junior aged children.  I work hard to ensure my workshops engage the children (and teachers!), and inspire a love of books and reading.

When you make a booking, I will create a tailor-made timetable, and provide all the teaching resources you need to make the day a success.

My visits usually begin with an interactive, introductory assembly with story reading and a short presentation about my life as an author. 

I then work with individual classes on hand-picked, curriculum-based activities, based on my books.

For full details, photos, video, comments and testimonials, visit my website: www.carylhart.com

Or email me for a comprehensive Teacher Pack.

I am also available for teacher training workshops.

 

BOOK WEEK / WORLD BOOK DAY:  If you would like to book me for Book Week or World Book day, please contact me well in advance as my diary fills up very quickly!!  (Please note: An author visit is a great way to improve literacy standards and the enjoyment of reading and writing, whatever day of the year it is!)
