I provide fun, stimulating literacy days for nursery, infant and junior aged children.  I work hard to ensure my workshops are fun, engagaging 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 and the value of reading to help us achieve our dreams.

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