Picturing our World: The Value of Picturebooks in Developing Reflective Readers with Nathan Bryon and Dapo Adeola

Join us in celebrating the much anticipated launch of author Nathan Bryon and illustrator Dapo Adeola's new book, Clean Up!

Following on from the phenomenal success of their debut Look Up! Nathan and Dapo will share Rocket’s latest adventure with our audience, giving exclusive insights into their creative process and discussing how they have developed a character that has delighted and inspired children and adults alike.

CLPE’s Charlotte Hacking and Farrah Serroukh will share CLPE’s most recent research from both our Power of Pictures and Reflecting Realities Studies, looking at the sophistication and depth of understanding that quality picturebooks can offer to children, how available these are across the primary years and why they are an important part of all children’s reading experience.

This will be followed by a presentation by Nathan and Dapo, where they will share insights into their inspirations, their creative processes and the appeal of picturebooks for them as artists. Participants will be able to submit questions in advance, some of which will be selected for a Q&A segment with Nathan and Dapo at the end of the evening.
