Last year Bath Children’s Literature Festival collaborated with book festivals from the UK and abroad to create Reading is Magic Festival, 25 online kids literature events with bestselling authors and illustrators.

With schools currently closed and many children learning at home,  free access to Reading is Magic Festival has been extended  until the end of the current lockdown. 

There are videos and podcasts for primary and secondary school ages with authors and illustrators including Cressida Cowell, Chris Riddell, Dapo Adeola & Nathan Bryon, Alex Wheatle, Sue Hendra & Paul Linnet, Jasbinder Bilan, Robin Stevens, Jason Reynolds and many, many more.

Themes covered include creativity, protecting the planet and the importance of seeing ourselves reflected in books and the festival is presented by CBBC star Karim Zeroual.

Start learning now by using the promo code FREEMAGICBCLF when joining as a member here. 

This code will give you free access until the end of the lockdown – the discount will be applied at checkout.

Organisers say they’d love this online learning resource to be available to as many children and parents as possible during this time.
