I always encourage reading, whether it's a fun bedtime story, the latest book from the school library or a magazine as it really is so beneficial to the Mini Mes. Minxy is really enjoying the David Walliams collection at the moment whereas Jamster is captivated by the adventures in the Beast Quest series. There are so many great authors to explore and with great deals available on websites like The Book People and Red House it's definitely worth building up your own bookcase for at home.
Scottish Friendly Children's Book Tour (organised by Scottish Book Trust) takes the very best UK and international authors directly into schools across Scotland and the UK to inspire a love of reading, writing and illustration. In January the Scottish Friendly Children’s Book Tour visited schools in Birmingham with the wonderful author, illustrator, playwright and poet Vivian French!
Vivian has published over 200 books for children of all ages including the hugely successful series The Tales from the Five Kingdoms, the first of which, The Robe of Skulls, won the 2008 Stockton Children’s Book of the Year Award.
She has some great tips on keeping an audience in engaged when telling a story...
