Event description
Smriti Halls - Virtual Session - The power of reading stories to children

About this Event

We are thrilled to announce that popular children's author Smriti Halls will be leading a twilight virtual session at the hub.

The session will cover the power of reading stories to children and the difference we can make, as adults, when we get it right. How as adults can we bring story reading alive for the children and the understanding that reading aloud matters.

This session would be great for teachers and TA's.

More about Smriti:

Smriti Halls is an award-winning, critically acclaimed children’s author. Since publication of her first picture book in 2012, she has had a U.S. number 1 bestseller and been published in more than 30 languages, from Arabic to Afrikaans and from Catalan to Korean.

With a cast of characters as varied as mischievous monsters and disgruntled geese, she explores relationship and identity; the personal and the political; how it feels to be in your own skin — and in someone else’s. Her books, often fast-paced and funny or lyrical and tender, are always full of hope and heart and speak to the child in all of us.

Several of her books have been nominated and shortlisted for national awards. The Little Island (illustrated by Robert Starling) is currently shortlisted for the 2020 Teach Primary Awards and the 2020 Little Rebels Award.
