The new edition of Literacy Lava is here. If you've not done so already, be sure to download your free copy of Literacy Lava 7 from the Book Chook's blog immediately, y'hear!
Once again my feathery friend has excelled herself with this marvellous free magazine. Inside the seventh edition you'll find ideas for helping kids create characters in their own writing; suggestions for word game fun; and secrets about getting dads reading. There's an article about board books for young children; a celebration of the magic of children’s literacy; and ideas to inspire budding writers. I give some suggestions for getting the most from a trip to the art gallery with children, and you'll see some lovely photos of Jemimah! There's even an Activity page for kids was designed by author, illustrator and scientist, Andrea Hazard.
I feel very proud to be included as one of the Ladies of the Lava. I hope you enjoy reading this new edition of Literacy Lava as much we enjoyed putting it together.
