“It was great to have Charlotte L. Taylor visit our school on World Book Day. As a qualified primary teacher and author, Charlotte’s presentation hit just the right balance with the children. Her books are exciting for children but also have many messages which link well with values-based education.”
Sara Herriott—Deputy Head and English Lead, Brampton Abbotts CE Primary School.
Author visits generally take the form of class or key-stage assemblies. They are an adult-led presentation that explores the self-development process in Charlotte's journey as an author thus far. Concepts include some of the following:
Each presentation is followed by a question and answer session with the children and a key-stage appropriate follow-up activity. A book sale and signing is held at the end of the school day..
Our workshops are designed to meet the National Curriculum for England (2014) objectives for KS1 and KS2. These can either be English or P.S.H.E. based. They are fun, engaging and educational, and they follow the themes, values and writing styles explored throughout the books published by Charlotte L. Taylor.

"It was quickly clear that these are resources made by a teacher for teachers. Someone who really understands the expectations of the curriculum, demands on teachers’ time and how to engage children. The resources ... are thoughtfully considered to match the National Curriculum, with links made explicit and clear. They support pupils to develop the reading skills that are essential to make them confident and competent readers."
Natasha Bradley, Deputy Headteacher and Gloucestershire Education Leader, B.Ed (Hons) with QTS.
