One of the most positive things to come out of the last few months, has been the free book resources that authors, publishers and illustrators have made available for families during lockdown.We have loved following draw-alongs with illustrators, such as Draw With Rob, watching online book readings (sometimes starring special celeb guests), listening to free audiobooks narrated by the authors, like Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz, and taking part in virtual book clubs and writing challenges. The only problem has been the amount of events to choose from!
Whilst our daily schedule of book events is designed to help you keep track of all the great book-themed activities happening, there just aren't enough hours in the day to do it all!
Happily, you can catch up on many of these videos on YouTube. Here are our top 10 YouTube recommendations for everything from book readings to virtual book events and more.
