On Wednesday the Year 3s and Year 4s had a visit from Lydia Sanders, the author of the Hysterical Herstories series. This new biography series tells the stories of five women in history who achieved remarkable things – Marie Curie, Coco Chanel, Rosa Parks, Ada Lovelace and Boudicca. Lydia used our weekly library session to introduce the children to her books, which are written in verse and beautifully illustrated.

 

Lydia is an excellent storyteller and the children were enthralled by Lydia’s tales of these extraordinary women. She also told us all about what it’s like to be an author and where she finds inspiration for her books. Hopefully, we have some budding authors and biographers in our midst now!
