17 May Pleased to meet you: Christina Gabbitas – Author of the Felicity Fly Series
I just wanted to share with you a lovely book I came across – Felicity Fly – and the author of course Christina Gabbitas, visit her website poemsandpictures here. Christina launched her initiative ‘An Invitation to the Primary School Nation’ which has proved to be really successful. Here at Reading Matters, we are thrilled that Christina will be at our conference on 8 July and I’m sure her workshop will be really interesting.
Christina has been receiving high praise from the schools she visits:
‘Thank you so much Christina for a thoroughly entertaining afternoon. The children here at Hessle Mount loved your stories about Felicity Fly and her friends; having the stories read aloud with their amazing accents had the children enthralled. We enjoyed hearing about how your ideas to write materialised and learnt about your determination and dedication to getting your ideas published. The children have been inspired to put pencil to paper and are presently writing their own poems about friendship, fears and teamwork. Many thanks once again for a lovely afternoon and good luck with your next story. We look forward to reading it.’ Sarah Cutting, Hessle Mount Primary School.
