The Book of Silly Rhymes is a winner!

I am so over the moon to announce that The Book of Silly Rhymes is a silver medal winner at The Wishing Shelf Book Awards. I just can’t believe it!

I was amazed when I found out my book was a finalist in the awards but to then find out it won the silver medal was the icing on the cake. 

Winning this award means so much to me as it is judged by children so to know the audience who I wrote the book for are enjoying it is just brilliant. 

It is a wonderful feeling to know that my book is being enjoyed by so many children. I wrote it because I wanted to bring fun and laughter to reading time and spread joy to children. I wanted to help inspire children to find their love of reading especially those that are reluctant to read in the first place.

My children’s book is a finalist in The Wishing Shelf Book Awards

I am over the moon to announce that The Book of Silly Rhymes is a finalist in the Wishing Shelf Book Awards!

I was so surprised I didn’t even know that my book had been entered but last Sunday I received the short but sweet txt message from my publisher to tell me The Book of Silly Rhymes has made it to the final of the awards.

It is an amazing feeling to find out that the children’s rhyming book I put so much time and effort into has made it into the finals of this award and for me the best thing is knowing that all the initial judging was done by children and teachers. 

Knowing that the children have read and enjoyed my book means the world to me after all they are the ones that I wrote my book for in the first place. 

The Book of Silly Rhymes for those of you that don’t know is a rhyme book for children packed full of short silly rhymes for 6-11 year old’s some of which are a little bit rude. It is aimed to bring fun and laughter to reading time and get children especially those reluctant to read enjoying story time. 

The whole book is printed in the open dyslexia font to help children and adults with dyslexia read the book more easily. I myself have dyslexia so I know the struggles children can have when faced with reading.

The winners will be announced on the 1st April 2020 so please do wish me luck.
