“Read a thousand books and your words will flow like a river”
What we do
Grace sells new children’s’ fiction and fact books. She provides a mobile-venue in our villages, for shared-reading, tailored to all age groups. for the very young, to independent reader hubs. Grace is also a venue for events such as author signings and drama groups.
With investment from local businesses, we can provide a greater range of free literary-based activities for our children, such as author events, actor and actress visits, and reading groups. It would enable full inclusivity of the child community, irrespective of parent financial circumstances. It would also enable us to buy book stock, that can be shared and rotated between the children.
Grace and our online shop (coming soon) hold a wide array of exciting fiction that will grow a greater depth in your child’s imagination, flair in their self-expression and fluency of vocabulary through their love of reading. We will soon have a subscription service where for a monthly fee books can be delivered to your home.
