Let’s ‘Make Every Day A Book Day’ In Primary Schools

Now that the excitement of World Book Day 2022 has faded, it’s back to my mission – helping teachers to ‘make every day a book day’ in primary schools.

My primary school author visits focus on bringing books to life, involving children in the storytelling and having fun. Last week I visited two primary schools in the Derbyshire area and scored top marks on the feedback forms I handed out to teachers. I really do love delivering my interactive author visits, so it’s wonderful to know that they are appreciated!

Here’s a sample of the latest feedback I received:-

The best thing about today’s author visit was that it was very interactive. The storytelling session was fun, engaging, creative, friendly, entertaining and inspiring. I would rate the author visit 10 out of 10 – we all really enjoyed it. Thank you – you were very inspiring for the children.” – Sian Roberts, Year 2 Teacher, Stanton Primary School, Burton on Trent.

My storytelling sessions are ideal for engaging, entertaining and inspiring children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 classes. I’m also skilled at adapting my presentation style to suit Key Stage 2 pupils, right through to Year 6. I particularly enjoy presenting in assemblies, getting everyone involved and inspiring young readers and budding writers from across the whole school!

My in person author visits include either a half-day (up to 3 hours) or full day with multiple interactive storytelling sessions based around my rhyming picture books Fred The Fire-Sneezing Dragon and Bob’s Beard. They feature props, cuddly characters and simple actions and rhymes for children to learn and enjoy.
Whether delivered in person or live online, my storytelling sessions are designed to engage, inspire and entertain young readers and budding writers. Prices start from just £75, with signed copies of my books available to purchase and receive on the day (£8 each). In addition, I now offer schools the option of receiving a FREE 1-hour assembly, with an author Q&A and ‘meet and greet’ book signing session.
I also enjoy delivering ‘virtual’ author visits to primary schools far and wide. These 40-minute assembly style sessions are delivered live online via Zoom and include an author Q&A.
