Has your child read most of their book collection at home? Are you looking for a fresh summer reading collection for your child? Then you must browse the BCS Virtual Book Fair, tomorrow, on Saturday 4 July from 10am!

This event is being hosted by Laura Smiley, who is a Reception parent and runs Happy Families Bookshop, all through Facebook commencing at 10am. An author, Matt Brown, is launching the BCS Virtual Book Fair and all links to the relevant events can be found below. Why not have some questions prepared for Matt’s Q&A session at 10am. The year group book events will run between 10:30-11:30.

Official Live Launch Event, 10am

Years 1 & 2

Years 3 & 4

Years 5 & 6

If you already have plans and can’t make those times, or do not have a Facebook account, you can still watch the event afterwards by using Facebook Watch.

To place an order, use this Google Form and Laura will organise for book orders to be left at The Blue Coat School main Reception for collection by parents. Book orders should be placed by Wednesday 8 July and will be available for collection early in the summer holidays.

Laura will be donating her commission to the Birmingham Children’s Hospital, the school will qualify for some free books and your child will continue to read for pleasure! I hope that you will support this event and join me in celebrating the many benefits of reading at all levels.
