Stourbridge MP joins World Book Day celebrations

Stourbridge MP, Suzanne Webb joined in yesterdays World Book Day celebrations by reading The Gruffalo to pupils at Colley Lane Academy in Halesowen.

A Year 2 class, taught by teacher Sadie Miller, heard the story written by Julia Donaldson of a mouse who survives the attention of fox, owl, snake and The Gruffalo himself to take a walk in the woods.

The book is an international favourite for generations of children. Ms Webb said:

“This is a special day for all children who love the power of storytelling and I was very proud to tell this classic story to them.

“It was a shame I had to do it on Zoom but hopefully next year I can go in person. Thank you to the school for letting me take part and to the children for listening so attentively.”

Teacher, Sadie Miller, added:

“It was a fantastic start to our World Book Day activities having Suzanne join us as a guest reader. Her enthusiasm and joy of reading shone through and really helped to promote the love of reading that children at Colley Lane have.”
