We all love reading. Encouraging reading for pleasure and a passion for reading in children is pretty much why most authors get into the game.

A couple of weeks ago, I had a great time recording a couple of videos with the awesome Phil Page of the DSAT academy. Phil shares a passion for reading and has worked tirelessly to grab, cajole and encourage tons of amazing authors and teachers into getting through their fears and to share their love of reading on camera.

It’s all in the name of encouraging children to read, and boy has it been successful. Each author has read some of their own work whilst the teachers have chosen their favourite books. Schools around the county have joined in and loads of children have taken it upon themselves to add to the project.

You can see my videos embedded below (and my daughter’s attempt on my YouTube channel), but check out the whole lot here (especially Halil Tamgumus – it will change the way you see the Gruffalo!).

Watch my reading of The Halloween Parade – I apologise for my awkwardness!
You thought that was awkward, my post-poetry discussion takes it to new levels!
