Here are some of the reviews for my books and my author visits:
School Visit Reviews:
It was a pleasure to have Charlotte in School. The kids learnt super interesting facts about dinosaurs and were all very excited to read her book. Miss Gillingham, Assistant Headteacher, Tetherdown Primary School
Our year 3 children thoroughly enjoyed working out Charlotte’s riddles! Charlotte gave a poetry presentation to each Year 3 class, making links to our current topic about Africa. The children loved creating their own poems at the end of the session. Thomas’s, London.
The kids were very excited about reading and learning about dinosaurs with Charlotte. It was a very interactive session online and they were keen to answer questions and share their knowledge. After the lesson they asked ..”Miss when are we doing more!”
Queen’s Park School, London
“Charlotte Sebag-Montefiore came into our school for a day of poetry with our KS2 classes. Before her visit she was very organized with her resources, which were differentiated by age. She suggested how the day could be organized to make the best day possible for our children. They thoroughly enjoyed listening to her riddles and guessing the animals. All 4 workshops went well and a lovely day was had by all.”
St James CE Primary School, Enfield.
“The children really enjoyed the riddles; I am constantly stopped by children who want to challenge me with ones that they have made up at the moment. It is great fun.”
Gospel Oak School, North London
“Charlotte Sebag-Montefiore visited Notting Hill Prep School and presented a series of short workshops on her poem/riddle books WHO AM I? and MORE ANIMAL RIDDLES. Our children in Years 1 and 2, who participated in the workshops, thoroughly enjoyed guessing the answers to the riddles. Thank you Charlotte.”
Notting Hill Preparatory School, London
Angela Kiverstein reviewed Herbie and the T. Rex in the Jewish Chronicle.
“Charlotte Sebag-Montefiore gives Herbie a friendly, reassuring voice, while Anita Schmidt’s drawings are endearingly unthreatening (even the tantruming T-Rex, although scarily toothy, has a hint of humour). Enriched with added dino facts. Age two to six. Royalties will go to the NHS.”
This is a gorgeous little story (with beautiful illustrations) which is not only a great adventure that my 5 and 7-year-old dino-mad boys have loved reading, time and again – it conveys a beautiful message about friendship and has led to some brilliant follow-on conversations with my sons. Thoroughly recommend for a great lockdown read. Shelley Marsden on GoodReads
