Stay at Home at Wigtown

This week, at Wigtown's virtual Big DoG Festival 2021, Stay at Home went online.


This collection of Stories and Poems for Lockdown is aimed at children aged 8-12. It is published by Cranachan Press, edited by Joan Haig and illustrated by Darren Gate.

if you'd like your own copy of the free ebook, you can get one here. There is also a Reading Resource Pack with Task Maps to help beleaguered teachers. 

There's something for everyone, as the saying goes. For this family's contributions, you can hear Callum Heitler at 34.19 with his story 'Picking the Right Pan' and then I'm at 50.06 with 'On the Roof'.  Enjoy!
