I want to be a 'YouTuber'

I want to be a 'YouTuber'! My 10 year old daughter has wanted to make a You tube 'How to' type video for time now and in the usual rush of life we have never had the time. But with the summer holidays upon us we managed to pull it together to make a 'HOW TO MAKE A BUG HOUSE' video! She edited the whole thing herself with just a teeny bit of help and I think she's done a really good job. She also did a little plug for my new books. See what you think!

A great review from 'Father Reading Every Day' for 'Sophie's Shell'!

I feel very lucky to have had my book reviewed by Father Reading Every Day! Daddy and T have an amazing blog where they review a children's book every day.

This is a lovely story to explore with children 4 and up, and absolutely ideal if you have a child starting nursery or reception in the next month or so! Jo has a knack of exploring emotion in a child-friendly, accessible way and this book could really prove helpful to many! T really enjoyed it and was eager to discuss friends. He told me, “

An exciting week of performance!
