With the Children’s Books Ireland Book Doctors.
This event is free of charge.
Are you a young reader? Looking for a new series to delve into? Feeling uninspired by your bookshelves at home? Then pop along to the virtual Children’s Books Ireland Book Clinic! Chat to the Book Doctor via Zoom, consult on your favourite reads and leave with a prescription for your next book which you can take to your local bookshop or library or add to your Christmas list!
Children’s Books Ireland Book Doctors give guidance about books to children and their families. Based on an informal chat, the white coat-clad Children’s Books Ireland Book Doctors recommend excellent books for any age of young reader, supported by Children’s Books Ireland’s many reading resources.
These clinics will be presented on Zoom and each consultation will be 15 minutes in duration. If you have more than one child who wishes to meet the Book Doctor please book more than one slot.
A parent or guardian will be required to be in the same room as the child at all times during the Zoom call. Please join the call from a comfortable seat in a quiet, well-lit room. Your email address will be shared by Pavilion Theatre with Children’s Books Ireland for the purpose of this call. The book prescription will be forwarded via email following the call. Please log in 5 to 10 minutes before your slot and you will be placed in the waiting room until your slot.
Sat 21st November
11am to 1pm (15 minute slot per child)
This Children’s Books Ireland Book Clinic is funded by Dublin UNESCO City of Literature.
