Fly with Tiny Owl!

Written by Amber Garvey, Tiny Owl intern

During this time of unprecedented loss and change, small businesses are having to adapt. Although this pandemic has hurt small businesses in many ways, including Tiny Owl, we wanted to be able to continue to provide our readers with hope and enjoyment. With this in mind, Tiny Owl have created #FlyWithTinyOwl, a free resource for our readers! We have had so much support from our authors and illustrators, teachers, librarians, parents and specialists which we are so thankful for. #FlyWithTinyOwl is updated daily with new videos including readalongs, craft activities and expert interviews! Here are just a few options we have for you!

Author Readings

We are lucky enough to have some of our authors record themselves reading their books! It is always interesting to hear how an author reads their own words! We have poetry from Dare and our favourite monster in Grobblechops! We also have a special video with Dunja Jogan, original author and illustrator of Felix After the Rain, talking us through her process.

Create with Hazel Terry

For those budding illustrators and artists out there, the talented Hazel Terry has activities for you! Every other day, Hazel has a new and exciting craft to complete, from shadow puppets to inflatable birds to moving pictures! Thinker: My Puppy Poet and Me illustrator Ehsan Abdollahi has also recorded a great video for you to create your very own Thinker!

Teacher and Librarian Readalongs

We have so many amazing teachers and librarians who have graciously taken time to record some readalongs for us! Teacher Matthew Courtney gives life to the hare and bear in Fair Shares while librarian Caroline Fielding brings the joy with A Bottle of Happiness. You can also find out The Secret of the Tattered Shoes with Mrs MJ! These are only a small number of readalongs awaiting you!

Expert Interviews

Child Psychologist Dr Sara O’Byrne of Treehouse Practice in Dublin, Ireland answered some important questions for us regarding the current pandemic and how to keep our young readers safe and happy. Having an expert’s opinion is so important during this confusing time.

Book of the Day

Along with all of these videos and activities, we also have a special half-price Book of the Day each day! We want to do anything we can to make this time easier for our readers. Check out our Twitter for the current Book of the Day and grab yourself a deal!

We are constantly updating our playlist with new videos for your at-home enjoyment! #FlyWithTinyOwl was created out of a dark time in everyone’s lives as a way of bringing joy and we hope our little community has done that for you! We want all of our readers to know that we will always be there for them, no matter what.
