With his first books being published in mid-October, it’s been a frenetic learning experience for Jason, attending events to promote them.
As well as the Crickhowell Children’s Book Festival, where he joined illustrator Max Low to talk about I Like To Put Food In My Welly, he’s been visiting book-shops and children’s playgroups to share both that book his other recent publication, What Can You See?
With more dates to follow next year, 2019 came to a close with a reading and signing of What Can You See? with a pre-school audience at the weekly playgroup at the Free Church in Hampstead Garden Suburb’s Central Square.
Between play-time and song-time, Jason engaged the youngsters by inviting them to look at the world around them and point to things they recognised. Many of the children rn up to him to point at the book. Others were content to sit at the back, waving their legs around and pointing at their knees.
At the end of the event, the Reverend Ian Tutton, who co-ordinates the group, told Jason he was welcome back any time.
Luckily there are more books to come in 2020.
As for the current books, after a three week break over Christmas and New Year, Jason is next scheduled to return to Martha’s Playgroup in Golders Green, with I Like To Put Food In My Welly, in the first week of January.
