A Little, Aloud for Children has been read in an amazing number of places since its publication last year – in libraries, on reading relays and in many of our Get Into Reading groups, including our Hope Readers groups at Liverpool Hope University with the primary school teachers of the future. Now, the magic of the stories and poems within the book are being shared with enthusiastic young readers in North Wales courtesy of children’s author Helena Pielchaty.
Helena is Patron of Reading at Ysgol Esgob Morgan in St Asaph, Denbighshire – a role that shares many of the aims of The Reader Organisation, primarily to get children enthused about reading and sharing reading for pleasure. Helena was featured reading at the school on BBC Wales Today last week and guess which book got a wonderful close-up on camera while it was being read aloud? That’s right, none other than A Little, Aloud for Children.
We’d like to thank Helena for sharing A Little, Aloud for Children with the pupils at Ysgol Esgob Morgan and are delighted to hear that The Snooks went down a treat! Helena has also written a guest post all about her role as Patron of Reading for our A Little, Aloud blog – head over to read about her experiences, and to see A Little, Aloud for Children’s starring television role!
