Children will also have the opportunity to purchase personally signed copies of any of my books.
Virtual Author Visits
If you fancy having me drop in on your class or year group virtually, I can offer you an interactive online reading of any of my books or even a few! You also have the option to continue the fun and learning with associated printable activity packs. There will also be an opportunity for the children to pre-order signed books and have them delivered to the school ready for the day of the visit.
A great budget friendly option for any school setting. Use an author reading of whichever book you fancy within your school as often as you like. Great to pair with a made-to-order Story Sack or just a copy of the book and a downloadable activity pack.
If you just want a great way to share one of my books within a classroom setting, a made-to-order story sack is the perfect option. Bring any book to life with fun activities, dressing up, games, toys, accessories,sensory play and even sweet treats. I can include as much or as little as you like to suit your requirements. Then you can re-use your story sack as often as you like!

Lead Teacher of Prep Department - Chase Grammar School
'We had an amazing morning with author Francesca Watt today. The children were enthralled with Francesca's beautifully illustrated, rhyming text and they were pleased that the crafty chameleon finally got his comeuppance.
Francesca is a natural with the children. She interacts with them according to their age group. The children adored dressing up using Francesca's colourful props and playing games to remind them of the importance of being kind friends. We will definitely be inviting Francesca back when she releases her next book!'
Nursery Leader - Lichfield Cathedral School
‘We wanted to say a massive thank you for joining us in school yesterday. The children had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed The Crafty Chameleon story and learning about being kind and sharing compliments. The session was enjoyed by all, and we have continued to take part in the activities you emailed over.’
Hillside Primary School
‘Brilliant session, the kids loved the stories (as did I, I’ve ordered them both!) and Francesca was very engaging which is hard to do over zoom!’
