Online Children’s Book Festival – June 26th and 27th 2021

A FREE CHILDREN’S BOOK FESTIVAL is being hosted by Independent Thinking this June.

This special event grew out of our recent podcast guest Ian Gilbert finding himself on a Zoom coffee morning chat with a wide range of authors, all brought together by Sue Atkins, TV’s celebrated ‘parenting coach’.

Post-lockdown, it is even more vital to help children develop their reading skills – and that all-important love of reading. So, they felt that bringing these wonderful authors together and giving each one 20 minutes to share their book, read a short extract and explain what drove them to write would be a really useful and enjoyable thing to do.

So that’s what they’re doing.

Simply check out all the great titles below and follow the links to reserve your free front-row seats. You can come to as many as you like.

And thank you for sharing this page with other educators, parents, librarians and anyone who has an interest in wonderful books for children.
