Book Readings and Learning
Sessions for Schools

Our offer

Different types of learning sessions and book readings are available. We will custom fit the sessions for the age and needs of your children.


Our learning sessions will help stimulate discussions to support children's emotional and social development. Through creative activities and conversations, we will help children to connect with others and see the importance of building healthy relationships.

Book Readings and Learning Sessions

All our books are available for book readings and workshops.​

  • We offer a whole school/ year group assembly looking at what an author and illustrator  do and the process we go through to create our books.

  • We are happy to consult with the teacher to choose the best book for each reading or learning session.

  • We can adapt the time of reading and learning session based on the age of the group.

  • Average reading/learning session take about 30 - 45 minutes.

  • We can adapt the learning session if the teacher wants to focus on any specific aspects of the writing/illustrating process or specific theme.

  • Additional materials will need to be supplied by the school i.e. art material, paper, photocopied templates and tools if we are doing an activity.

We can do up to 5 workshops per day if there are short breaks in between.


For more information on these workshops, please contact us with the name and address of your school. Please specify if you have a specific book reading or presentation in mind or would like to consult together on the best options.
