Our talented illustrator, Louise Gwillym works at Llanfoist Primary School in Monmouthshire. Here she enjoys using The Baby Birds resources with the reception class. The children are so proud to have the Books at Press illustrator as a member of staff!
The pupils of Longtown Primary School enjoyed their own version of the Royal Wedding with a role-play based on the book A Wedding Day Wish for Puddles.
Surrounded by friends and family 'Prince William' and 'Catherine' pledged their vows in the red, white and blue adorned grand marquee which took pride of place in the school grounds. Whilst The Reverend Freddie Fisher played his part in the service, Puddles and Arthur kept a careful eye on the proceedings. They particularly enjoyed the sumptuous reception - especially the cream cakes.
Amidst the excitement and celebrations, parents and children chatted with the author and enjoyed having their own personal copies of the book signed by Gill.
