This week is Children’s Book Week and seeing as Kate loves to write children’s books to keep her creative copywriting flowing we thought a blog post dedicated to Chichester Copywriter’s favourite children’s book was in order.
The aim of Children’s Book Week is to celebrate reading for pleasure for children of primary school age. Schools, libraries and bookshops all over the UK hold events and activities aimed at encouraging children to view reading as a source of pleasure, explore libraries and bookshops, discover new books and even start their own creative writing.
Last year, children in schools and libraries across the country took part in a wide range of activities for Children’s Book Week, such as writer and illustrator visits in schools, library and bookshop visits, designing book covers and poetry reading assemblies.
Yesterday, Booktrust announced on Twitter that the favourite children’s books of their followers so far include: “Anything by Roald Dahl, Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Winnie the Pooh, Anne of Green Gables, The Secret Garden, The Borrowers, The Wind in the Willows and Green Eggs and Ham.”
Chichester Copywriter most definitely agrees that AA Milne and Roald Dahl should be among the top children’s authors. Our West Sussex copywriter enjoyed books by these talented writers throughout her childhood and continues to cherish them now. Of course, there is just as much pleasure in children’s books for adults as for there is for a younger audience.
Here are some quotes from Chichester Copywriter’s favourite children’s book of all-time, Winnie the Pooh :
“A little Consideration, a little Thought for Others, makes all the difference.” Eeyore
“I am a Bear of Very Little Brain, and long words Bother me.” Winnie the Pooh
“Eeyore was saying to himself, “This writing business. Pencils and what-not. Over-rated, if you ask me. Silly stuff. Nothing in it.” Eeyore
“My spelling is Wobbly. It’s good spelling but it Wobbles, and the letters get in the wrong places.” Winnie the Pooh
“You can’t help respecting anybody who can spell TUESDAY, even if he doesn’t spell it right; but spelling isn’t everything. There are days when spelling Tuesday simply doesn’t count.” Winnie the Pooh
“When you are a Bear of Very Little Brain, and Think of Things, you find sometimes that a Thing which seemed very Thingish inside you is quite different when it gets out into the open and has other people looking at it.” Winnie the Pooh
“If anybody wants to clap, said Eeyore when he had read this, “now is the time to do it.” They all clapped. “Thank you,” said Eeyore. “Unexpected and gratifying, if a little lacking in Smack.” Eeyore
Hallo, Piglet,” he said, “I thought you were out.” “No,” said Piglet, “It’s you who were out, Pooh.” “So it was,” said Pooh. “I knew one of us was.” Winnie the Pooh and Piglet
Kate went out this afternoon to see what Chichester library and Waterstone’s had planned for Children’s Book Week but was disappointed to find a lack of special events. Kate would love to know of any Children’s Book Week activities you’re running or are going to attend, just leave a comment on this blog.
