I absolutely LOVE doing events.  After spending months holed up in a cave writing my books, there's nothing better than seeing the sunlight and sharing my books with children.  

My visits are high-energy, engaging and interactive. 

School visits consist of a whole-school assembly and writing workshops.  Workshop options include:

  • Book reading with story sack and a craft activity (nursery-yr 2)

  • Dance, movement and games session linked to my books (nursery-yr6)

  • Plotting your masterpiece (years 3-6)

  • Setting your story (years 3-6)

I'm super-flexible so please do chat to me if you have any specific requirements and I can put together a school visit just for you.

Send me an email through my contact page and I'll be in touch!


"What a treat our Reception and KS1 children had, spending a morning working with Donna David!  Her storytelling was superb and the children were spellbound.  We can't wait for her return visit!"

"Hi Donna, I just wanted to say thank you so much for yesterday. The children really enjoyed it and you pitched it just right. It was great for them to meet a real-life author in their literacy week. Thank you!"

"The children in Year 1 absolutely loved spending some time with Donna - their first time meeting a real-life author!  They were totally engaged with her amazing story-telling."                                                            Mr Marston, Grove Primary School

Donna David’s books make an “excellent read and starting point for discussions in the classroom.” Mayday Books
