They produced some amazing entries and I had the difficult job of selecting just one winner to receive a signed copy of ‘The Giraffes of Whispering Wood’

I am delighted to say that the winning entry was all about a love of reading. Something that we are all very passionate about ourselves here at Night Zookeeper HQ! Congratulations to Night Zookeeper Tiac, a year 6 student from Tauranga Intermediate School, New Zealand. You can read her entry below and follow her portfolio of writing on her profile here.

Reading is fun by Tiac (Tauranga Intermediate School, New Zealand)

Dear Penguin Professor, I am going to teach you about what type of book you should read.

Reading is fun if you find the right books but, you don’t want to read a really easy book or a really hard book. You need to challenge yourself and find a book you will actually enjoy, or there is no point reading it! You should look for different genres and authors and see what type of books you like.

I used to hate reading until I found the book called diary of a wimpy kid by Jeff Kinney. He made me like reading so much that in my spare time I read his books I even read them at break times and when I was walking home. I wished I found the right book before I was 8 because after reading my reading levels went up so fast that my mum wished my brother read books like me.

How you can help your child with dysgraphia or dyslexia to enjoy writing.

Dyslexia and dysgraphia are common learning difficulties experienced by children. It can be incredibly tough to find a program that not only helps encourage a child to love creative writing who struggles with either of these difficulties, but also one that allows them to actually flourish as creative writers! So, the main question is how can we help someone with dysgraphia or dyslexia with their writing so that they can grow to love it? There are plenty of online learning games and options for dyslexia and dysgraphia that can help your child.

In partnership with IMM’s Care to Create and printed.com, we set out a very special Star Writing Challenge.

For this Star Writing Challenge, we asked our young writers to create a short rhyming poem about staying positive and spreading love and hope. We also wanted them to create a piece of artwork relating to positivity and spreading love and hope. The winners of this challenge had the chance to have their poems and drawings featured across different hospitals and care homes to help make Key Workers’ and patients’ lives happier.
