“Speak Scruffy! Have a Go!” Book Event Thank you to Cheltenham Literature Festival for inviting me to chat about my children’s picture storybook “Speak Scruffy! Have a Go!” We talked about story powered language learning – Children are engaged with culture and language learning. Enabled to communicate confidently with a native speaker after just a few reads. We were very well looked after by Cheltenham Festivals – Scruffy got on the stage and chilled in the green room too! Thanks to everyone who came, for the wonderful feedback and for the great Q&A session at the end.
