The pupils who benefit the most are the pupils who don't read and who wouldn't dream of going to an author event. They are the ones that discover that authors are 'real people', […] often very similar to themselves.
We joined #BBCAuthorsLive this morning to listen to the fabulous @RBrightBooks talk about her experience as an author and her new book. We enjoyed drawing the main character from the new book with a lesson from the book’s illustrator @_JimField.— Mrs McCann & P3 (@MrsMcC_StP) October 4, 2022
