Children's Author and Freelance Writer
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!
"The children in Year 1 enjoyed Donna visiting our school. Whilst in our class, she was able to help the children understand the process of publishing a book. She used drama to aid the children's learning. The book that Donna shared in class inspired the children to design their own trains. The children were enthusiastic to ask questions to an author, and Donna was super at keeping everyone engaged. We look forward to her next visit!"
Miss Ives, Perton Primary Academy
"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!"
Miss Howell, Broseley Primary School
"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!"
Mrs Hale, Heather Rabbit Nursery
