Book Week 2019 has been exceptionally busy and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. I spent my first book week (as an author) in two wonderful schools in Edinburgh. I met over 200 children aged 3 – 8 and was able to do numerous 30 minute workshops based around Shadrach the Lion.
These workshops encouraged the children to use descriptive language to describe characters and introduced elements of a story, such as the beginning, middle and the end.
I was also given the opportunity to attend their book fair and it was great to see the children sharing their love for the story and telling their parents all about Shadrach. The children were able to colour in pictures from the book, which some children proudly took home.
The week ended with the appearance of Shadrach the Lion on World Book Day!! What a wonderful surprise. It was so lovely to see others recognise the character too.
Thank you to everyone for making this years book week so enjoyable.
