What an amazing day!!! 

Today was our Book Launch Day, the climax of our fantastic collaborative Storybook Project at Higher Openshaw Community School in Manchester. We started with a whole school assembly in which we shared a video documenting the creative process that resulted in four fabulous original picturebooks. Then we read each story in turn, projecting the artwork, and presented the teachers with a class copy for the school library. There was such a buzz in the air as every child in YR1 & YR2 received a copy of their very own book:

It’s the best book I’ve ever read!” – Ruby, YR2

My book is fantastic!” – Myah, YR1

It was magic to get my monster in the book!” – Abigail, YR1

It has been wonderful working with you! The children have had an amazing experience to create and make and have their own book.” – Miss Meddick, YR1

The books are amazing and the kid’s reaction to them was fantastic! You had every one of them engaged and that is so rare – I love it!” – Mrs Hughes, YR2

We had a wonderful treat during the event when we were able to share a specially recorded video message from the Children’s Laureate, Lauren Child, creator of Charlie & Lola!!!

 

Our very own message from Lauren Child – so lucky! We are so pleased to say our work with Pippa will continue next year as she’ll be our Patron of Reading.” – Miss Mort, YR2

Would children at your school love to become authors and illustrators in a Storybook Project?

I had a wonderful day with the children at the Co-operative Childcare nursery at Littlehampton. I have been commissioned by The Midcounties Co-operative to produce five little picturebooks to feature each of their existing Little Pioneer characters. Yesterday the children worked with me to build stories for the first in the series – about Charlie, a boy who loves to co-operate with others!

I was also filmed and interviewed throughout the day. The film will be screened at the organisation’s AGM next month . . .
