Joseph Coelho Book Pack - Children's Laureate 2022 - 2024

  • ISBN13: BKJC

As Children's Laureate from 2022 to 2024, poet, author, and playwright Joseph Coelho will be celebrating the power of poetry! He became interested in poetry in sixth form when Jean "Binta" Breeze (a Jamaican-born dub poet and storyteller) visited his school. As Children's Laureate, Coelho wants to improve diversity amongst the authors and illustrators on UK bookshelves. He has said that poetry is often what people turn to in times of need "because we instinctively know, deep down in our core, that poetry transcends". 

British-born Coelho has written over 20 incredible books for young people, including 'Luna Loves Library Day' and 'The Girl Who Became A Tree,' which have been awarded and shortlisted for numerous book awards - including the Yoto Carnegie Medals for Writing and Illustration, plus received a Special Mention for the 2021 Bologna Ragazzi Poetry Award.

Coelho spent a lot of time in schools before his books were published, promoting literacy by leading poetry sessions through various organisations. Coelho frequently facilitates CPD sessions with teachers, providing strategies for getting kids interested in poetry.
