Chapter One - free readings and home learning resources from your favourite authors

We’ve asked our favourite authors to read one chapter from their books to help you keep children engaged and excited about reading. Where possible, we’ll include links to free teaching resources to make your lesson planning even simpler. What are you waiting for? Scroll to see the selection, and click on the video of your choice to start the story!


Welcome to Julia Donaldson and Friends!
