There aren’t many awards for children’s to poetry so it’s pretty special to win one of them!
I’m thrilled to announce, with Sue Hardy-Dawson and Roger Stevens, that we have won this year’s North Somerset Teachers’ Book Award for Poetry, which is voted on by teachers from North Somerset and all over the UK.
A huge thank you to all the teachers who took the trouble to read the entire shortlist and vote on them. What a special thing. We are overjoyed that our book is helpful and being used in schools.
Over the next few days I will be sharing videos of some of the poems from the book read by the authors.
