Did you know that In the Night Garden is celebrating it’s 10th birthday this year? For the past 10 years, it has featured within the bedtime hour for many children – including my own. A can still remember a colleague telling me about how her twins adored In The Night Garden and that I should introduce it to Roo. From that first episode, she was hooked. Awaiting for the CBeebies bedtime hour to come on each evening so that she could capture a glimpse of Upsy Daisy, Iggle Piggle, Makka Pakka and all their friends.
As today is World Book Day I thought I would share with you why Jacqueline Wilson is Roo’s favourite author. I can’t quite remember when Roo read her first Jacqueline Wilson novel. I have a feeling it was one that caught her eye during a trip to the local library. That first book must have captured her imagination as it soon leads to another and another.
