Children's Author Tom Palmer's Xmas Book Giving 2019

We were delighted to learn of this wonderful offer from Tom Palmer, Children's author, for teachers, librarians and other adults to nominate children they think would benefit from the gift of a book for Christmas.


On his website, Tom writes;


''Our idea is to work with teachers and librarians – who already do so much to engage children with the joys of reading and books – and give books to children who do not have any books at home; to children who need that one special book that could help engage them with a lifetime of reading for pleasure; or, to children who have had a difficult year at school or home and a book would be a boost for them...

Each book will be personally dedicated, signed, gift-wrapped and will come with a Christmas card from me. Those nominating can choose from any of my books for children.''


The deadline for nomination is Saturday 30th November. Further info and details of how to nominate a child can be found on Tom's website here.
