Literacy Library Presents: Picturing our World: The Value of Picturebooks in Developing Reflective Readers
Join virtually on 29th July 2020, 5:00 - 6:30pm, to celebrate the much anticipated launch of author Nathan Bryon and illustrator Dapo Adeola's new book, Clean Up!
Following on from the phenomenal success of their debut Look Up! Nathan and Dapo will share Rocket’s latest adventure, giving exclusive insights into their creative process and discussing how they have developed a character that has delighted and inspired children and adults alike.
Nathan and Dapo will be joined by CLPE’s Charlotte Hacking and Farrah Serroukh who will share CLPE’s most recent research from both the Power of Pictures and Reflecting Realities Studies, looking at the sophistication and depth of understanding that quality picturebooks can offer to children, how available these are across the primary years and why they are an important part of all children’s reading experience.
At this exclusive event there will also be an opportunity to submit questions in advance, some of which will be selected for a Q&A segment with Nathan and Dapo.
The first 25 people to book their place will receive a copy of the book, Clean Up!
Tickets £10 from here
