USEFUL LINKS

There are so many brilliant and inspiring people out there who are passionate about books and I spend as much time as I can reading about their ideas and experiences via their blogs or websites.

Thus, I thought it might be helpful to share the details of these children’s literature champions so that you can enjoy them as well 🙂

The aim is to update this page as often as possible, so please shout if you think there’s something I’ve missed that needs to be on here!
