Patron Of Reading

Here's a huge hello to you all at Burnfoot Community Primary School... I am absolutely delighted to have been asked to be your Patron of Reading and I can't wait to come and meet everyone on the 28th November.

A Patron of Reading is an Author, Illustrator, Poet or Storyteller that has a close link with a school and who encourages everyone to share a love of reading. This isn't something that I can do on my own though... I want you to help too. Whether you're a pupil, a teacher or a parent I want you to get involved so we can all share our love of reading.

Let me know what sort of things you like to read and what you are reading right now - it might be a book - it might be a comic - it might be a graphic novel or perhaps it's something else. If you think that someone else might be interested in the same thing then let me know and I can write about it here. So please leave a comment or send me an email.

Here's some things you can do...

Let me know who your favourite author is...

Let me know what your favourite book is now - or, grown-ups, when you were a child...


Send me a picture that you have drawn or a piece of writing that you have done...


Send me a picture of yourself reading a book in an unusual or interesting place (you can always hide your face behind the book so that no one knows who it is - and that way it will keep your friends guessing.)  Remember to get your parents permission if you're sending a picture.


To find out more about me you can visit my website www.damianharvey.co.uk you can also email me if you want to ask anything about me or writing.
