Get Gobblefunking with Roald Dahl

Oxford University Press have some fantabulous activity sheets for children to use and enjoy this Roald Dahl Day (13 September).

If you do use the resources in your library or school, we would love to see photos. You can share these by using #GetGobblefunking and tagging @OUPChildrens and @readingagency.

Competition

There is also a great competition for children aged 13 and under on the Summer Reading Challenge competition page. If they enter they could win a copy of the phizz-whizzing Oxford Roald Dahl Dictionary and a set of creative writing titles, including How to Write Your Best Story Ever!.

Keeping your reading group active while social distancing

Are you wondering how your reading group can continue to meet, even while you’re social distancing? With many people at home with family, flatmates or on their own, we know that books are so important to provide comfort, solace and escapism. Staying socially connected, and keeping your regular reading group meetings in your diary, is going to be very important in keeping up morale and supporting everyone’s mental health as we adjust to a new way of living.

Hive and The Reading Agency

The Reading Agency loves books, in every form, and we know you do too. We love it when people borrow books in every format from their brilliant local libraries. We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
