Open University’s Reading for Pleasure, Author Spotlight.

It was such an honour to be included in the Open University’s Reading for Pleasure, Author Spotlight

“Reading for Pleasure is the entitlement of every child, yet how can we foster readers’ desire and engagement?Our research, a two phase Open University and UK Literacy Association project, examined children’s and teachers’ reading lives, and established effective ways to support Reading for Pleasure (RfP).”Designed for schools and parents, based on academic research, the scheme helps to foster a love for reading.

When I wrote my migrant children’s series, I did so in a school setting to encourage children to celebrate their differences and learn about one another through their stories.I’m so grateful to have this recognition and support from @theopenuniversity literacy scheme.If you know any teachers, librarians or schools that would like to add to their bookshelves, please share.
