Feel Brave author Avril McDonald featured on NZ national news - twice!

June 08, 2016

Click on to see Avril on camera + read a great review of her school appearance!

​Avril McDonald, author of the recently published Feel Brave series of children’s books, has been busy of late in promoting her ‘little stories about big feelings’ by visiting primary schools around her local area in Kent. However she has grabbed attention from further afield in her native country of New Zealand as two of their news channels, TV3 and TVNZ, sent camera crews to film Avril in action with the kids in Loughton and Oprington this week.

Furthermore, Avril’s visit to St Paul’s Cray CE Primary School in Orpington proved to be a successful one as Jo Zegeling, the school’s Nursery (Early Years) Leader, gave the following glowing review:

“At St Paul’s Cray CE Primary School, we were privileged to have a visit from the author Avril McDonald. She shared her wonderful feel brave books with our two year 1 classes. The children responded in a really positive way and the stories encouraged them to talk about their feelings and what they can do to help themselves and others. We showed the whole school these books in an assembly following Avril’s visit and we all agree that they will become an integral part of teaching feelings within our PSHE curriculum. This is an area that children do struggle with and Avril’s motivating books with their beautiful illustrations and wonderful rhymes will go a long way towards helping young children improve the way that they communicate their feelings and emotions.”
