We Are Together by Britta Teckentrup - Activity and Library Competition

We are together

We Are Together Competition

Continuing with their commitment to publishing diverse and inclusive books for children of all ages, Little Tiger Group presents the latest peep-through, richly illustrated picture book from Britta Teckentrup, We Are Together.

To support the book’s themes of strength in community, they have created an activity sheet that allows children to think about similarities and differences, and to draw themselves.

The idea is that a gallery of individuals can be grouped within their library to show a real representation of togetherness, and being a part of a bigger whole. The pages can be displayed in full A4, or ‘cookie-cut’ to create a ‘paper dolly’ chain.

To participate in your library, download the We Are Together activity sheet.

Little Tiger would love to see your displays and activities in the library using #WeAreTogether on social media, tagging @LittleTigerUK and @readingagency.

You can also share photos directly with Kimberley, using the email address above. The deadline date for this feedback is 26 November.

All of the displays which are shared will be entered into a prize draw, with the winning library receiving a limited signed print from Bee: A Peek-Through Picture Book by Britta Teckentrup.


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...
