Children might dream of becoming an author when they grow up, but nursery students at Crockerne Primary School have already ticked writing a book off their bucket lists.

Children from Acorn Nursery, which is based at the primary school in Pill, have been taking part in a project about reading, listening, re-telling and learning about stories and story structure this year.

As part of the project they have created their own book, I Can Tell A Story.

Books On The Hill, in Clevedon, agreed to let the children and their families host a book launch in its shop where children could sign their books before buying them.

Nursery class teacher Tracey Whitehead said: “We were thrilled when Books On The Hill agreed to host our book launch, lots of children and their families came.

“We had a display of our book in the window and giving them the experience of buying their real book from a real bookshop made it meaningful.”
