Julia Donaldson to visit Eastbrook

Julia Donaldson, author of The Gruffalo, Stickman, Zog and many, many more will be visiting Eastbrook on Thursday 4th July.

We are very excited to announce that the world-famous, best-selling children’s writer, Julia Donaldson, is coming to Eastbrook Primary on Thursday July 4th. Julia will be working with Year 2 Classes using drama and music.

After school, when Julia finishes her workshops, Julia’s local bookshop, The Steyning Bookshop, will set up a ‘pop-up bookshop’ in the school hall, selling all Julia’s wonderful picture, chapter and song books.

This is a chance for parents, children and staff from all year groups to buy a book and meet Julia while they get it signed!

Julia Donaldson is most well-known for her classic picture book ‘The Gruffalo’ but in fact she has written over 150 books for children of all ages, including chapter books for Junior-aged children.

The Steyning Bookshop will have all Julia’s books on sale: Prices start at £5.99 for an ‘Early Reader’ chapter book, most picture books cost £6.99, and hardbacks from £10.99. Julia’s latest paperback book is ‘The Girl, the Bear and the Magic Shoes’.

The bookshop will accept payment by cash, cheque or card, and will give the school back a credit on the book sales to spend on books for the school.

The Steyning Bookshop regret that you may not bring your Julia Donaldson books from home to get signed, as it causes confusion and holds up the queue for those buying on the day.
