This anthology is the perfect compliment to an Author and/or Illustrator study. As the title says, it has words of inspiration from some amazing Authors and Illustrators that would be perfect to support and guide the young and aspiring authors and illustrators in your class. Throughout the book there are examples of their work with explanations as to how they were developed. At the end of the book there are 20 ideas for creative projects which would be a great addition to any Literacy programme and there is more information about each of the Children’s Laureates.
