Oak National Academy and the National Literacy Trust have come together to launch their Virtual School Library to keep children reading during lockdown.
Every week, a popular children’s author will become their ‘Author of the Week’ and provide a free book or audiobook and exclusive videos and activities aimed at primary school children, all available at library.thenational.academy.
Their first Author of the Week is Dame Jacqueline Wilson DBE, who talks about how her infamous character Tracy Beaker got her name, offers exclusive activities and recommends her top reads to check out. The Story of Tracy Beaker is also available to read for free for a week. Spread the word!
