Part of the fun of being a children’s author is getting to meet young readers and their families. Josie is available for author visits in bookshops and schools. The visits are great fun for all involved. As well as reading her stories to the children, Josie gets the children involved in art and craft activities based around one of her stories. There might even be a treasure hunt with sticker prizes!
“Kept children interested all the way through.”
Josie will be at Made & Found, a fabulous new cafe on Scheregate Steps in Colchester on 22nd and 29th August.
Stories & Crafts * 22nd August
Children from age 2 to 7 will love to hear Josie read her story Lum to them.
After the story, the children will enjoy a drink and a snack and then they can indulge their creativity with house building!
Imagination & Creation * 29th August
This workshop is for children age 5 to 11. Josie will have lots of craft items and fun ideas to help the children explore their own imaginations to create a story.
