The Great Green Read is back!
This year, children are invited to boost their literacy skills whilst learning more about British wildlife and how we can all support and protect it.
Schools and families can once again take part in an exciting creative writing competition to help children engage with the wildlife and environment around them:
Children will be invited to a series of author events, including:
- Ade Adepitan, TV presenter, Paralympic medallist and climate champion, as part of the launch for Neil Griffith's new children's book, The Secret Garden Under the Sea: Seanna the Seahorse and Friends
- Jackie Morris, the talented illustrator behind the phenomenal children’s book, The Lost Words
- MG Leonard, the bestselling author of The Ice Children and the Twitch series
- Nicola Davies, zoologist and author of The Magic of Flight and One World: 24 hours on Planet Earth
The Great Green Read, hosted by the National Literacy Trust and in partnership with the Rotary, is an opportunity for children to learn and discover more about the world around them, empowering them to use their literacy skills to take action and protect local wildlife whilst educating others within their community.
