Blast off to reading success!

There are lots of ways to help little readers make the leap from reading schemes to reading independently and loving it. Come and hear from an award-winning publisher specialising in books for emergent readers of all ages. A great chance to discuss the mechanics of reading, ways to make reading appeal to girls and boys, and how to tackle potential issues such as dyslexia, visual stress and competition from other media.

Bring along any questions and concerns and take lots of information and inspiration home. Author Jonathan Meres will chip with his experience of writing the gorgeous new early reader Grandpa was an Astronaut and his thoughts on tricks to inspire a love of reading through humour and more.
