We hope that you are using all this time at home to enjoy books. Maybe you are practising your phonics ; reading to someone at home ; discovering new books at home or online or maybe enjoying someone reading to you.
Here are some other ways you might want to enjoy stories while at home.
The Book of Hopes
Completely free for all children and families, the extraordinary collection of short stories, poems, essays and pictures has contributions from more than 110 children’s writers and illustrators, including Lauren Child, Anthony Horowitz, Greg James and Chris Smith, Michael Morpurgo, Liz Pichon, Axel Scheffler, Francesca Simon and Jacqueline Wilson.
The collection, published by Bloomsbury, is dedicated to the doctors, nurses, carers, porters, cleaners and everyone currently working in hospitals.
The Book of Hopes is currently available to read online only. Bloomsbury intends to publish a gift book based on the project in the autumn in support of NHS Charities Together.
