Christmas Special

Description

Children's Laureate Michael Rosen unwraps a selection of literary treats, including a rare and exclusive interview with Raymond Briggs, creator of The Snowman.

Rosen also reports on the enduing appeal of the pantomime, with a behind the scenes look at a production of The Pied Piper of Hamlyn and tips on how to stage your very own school panto.

Meanwhile, the Charles Dickens Christmas legacy is explored with a visit to a elegant town house in Bloomsbury, London, where Dickens and his family once lived.

Also in this programme:

  • critic Julia Eccleshare shares her top children's books for Christmas
  • an alternative Christmas message, prepared by students at a school in Birmingham, provides a great opportunity to encourage speaking, listening and writing skills
  • Michael continues his Poetry in Motion crusade to make poetry fun in the classroom

Part of the series: Reading Aloud Christmas Treats
