Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we know many parents will be home schooling their children during unprecedented school closures and a pause to the national curriculum. We understand how difficult this time will be for everyone so with the support of our children’s authors, whose school visits have been postponed during the ongoing uncertainty, we are offering related children’s titles at a reduced, bundle price – several of which will come with an activity poster which our authors are offering for free while they're unable to deliver school workshops. The activity posters are designed to entertain and encourage an analytical and creative response to each text which we hope will help inspire home learning – or provide resources for classrooms of children of key workers – and foster a love of reading adventure narratives. Below you’ll find bundle selections suitable for primary, middle-grade (aged eight to twelve) and young adult readers (eleven plus).
