Scholastic and Red House are two children’s publisher/sellers who have joined forces to create an exciting resource for parents, teachers and children who are interested in reading and literacy, called The Big Book Babble.
You can access The Big Book Babble by clicking on the link here:
The Big Book Babble has a fantastic archive of filmed material and interviews with famous children’s authors and illustrators which are available to watch.
They also promote a series of live events which you or your school can link up to virtually through the internet and take part in as they happen.
Last year Michael Rosen was a guest on Roald Dahl Day when he talked about his new book, all about his hero Roald Dahl. Children were able to link live to the chat and ask questions to Michael Rosen during the event.
More talks and events are planned for 2013, and the site is constantly being updated with more information and resources.
