Free Author Visits

I’m a children’s author on a mission to create a world full of book days, with my FREE primary school author visits.

As well as visiting primary schools, I enjoy delivering storytelling sessions at children’s nurseries, libraries and bookshops. I’m also happy to appear as a guest speaker at literary events and education conferences.

To celebrate the launch of my book Bob’s Beard, I started offering primary schools the option of booking a FREE author visit, with no attendance fee. These half-day visits are funded through book sales to pupils and remain hugely popular.

Author visits with Bob’s Beard include lots of audience participation, props and cuddly characters. Fred The Fire-Sneezing Dragon is another engaging rhyming story, with simple actions to learn and repeat, so everyone has fun as they ‘sneeze-along’ with Fred.

My interactive storytelling sessions are ideal for pupils from Pre School and Reception, up to and including Year 2 (EYFS and KS1). I regularly present in school assemblies and can adapt my sessions for pupils in Key Stage 2, right through to Year 6.

I love seeing how much my author visits inspire primary school children and boost literacy, phonics and comprehension skills. My aim is to spark children’s imaginations and help teachers to promote reading for pleasure.
