READING TO YOUR CHILDREN
Michelle receives a steady stream of enquiries from teachers and educators regarding the reading of the WOLF BROTHER books to their classes, either live in-person or remotely over the internet. Please rest assured that, as long as the conditions below are met, there is no need to request special permission to read these books to your children.
1) The reading should not be for profit, i.e. you must not charge for it;
2) The reading should be the same as would normally be done in a physical classroom situation, i.e. to a closed group of pupils or students. This means that you cannot broadcast it over the internet to the general public (e.g. as a YouTube recording or podcast), but reading to a private user group such as a Zoom call with your students is perfectly fine.
