Featuring….Lynda M Stewart: B.Ed (Hons)

“I live in Dorset with my husband, two children and two pet guinea pigs.

I am a qualified Primary School Teacher and I have been teaching KS1 children for the past 25 years.

During that time, I have read hundreds of wonderful stories and I know how much children of all ages, enjoy listening to them.

Well…it has always been my dream to write and publish my own children’s book…so here it is! …I hope you enjoy it…..I have lots of other exciting ideas for books too…so please visit www.dorsetdaisybookpublishing.co.uk again for new book releases in the future!”

Lynda is kindly donating books for some or our prizes, and, most importantly, is donating books for deserving children in our area this World Book Day – thank you Lynda! We will be distributing the books around the 4th March.

She has also given us some colouring-in templates, which you are free to download and use, either for our competition of for your own pleasure! Click the image to get a bigger printable.
