Just had an interesting chat on facebook messenger with a teacher I know, got some scheduling things to work out but it looks like I’ll be doing a world book day event sometime in the week starting 2nd March for up to three different schools.
Totally elated, this is a much bigger event than I had prepared for but I’m looking forward to it. I’m trying to figure out what might work best, whether to tell them about writing, read from the first book or write up something specifically for the day.
To be honest I’m inclined to keep it simple and work on my presentation, the main thing for me to remember is that I’ll have an audience of kids from five years and up to keep entertained. Now I just need to figure out what the basic material will be.
What kind of thing do you think primary school aged kids would enjoy in a book talk? If you’ve already read some of ‘Jack Reusen and the Fey Flame’ have you got any suggestions about a good chapter/section that I could read for them?
It’s been an amazing few days, thanks for all the support for the books, I’ll get on here as much as I can as things progress to keep you updated on events, book progress, or just to check in and share other bits and pieces I’ve come across. All the best, John
