Explaining Big Concepts to Small People

Posted on: Tue 5 Sep 2017

Davina Bell is a children’s author who balances her imaginative tales with important messages that help children comprehend big ideas.

Breakfast Presenter met with Davina earlier this year for writer’s week and asked: how do you simplify these ideas?

“I think by creating really small narrative moments where children can identify or recognise themselves in a character’s struggle and offering some kind of hope or comfort in a solution.” – Davina Bell.
