Bringing Books to Life takes viewers on another wonderful adventure into the worlds of some of the best children's books written for primary aged children. The real and animated worlds collide to suggest the wonder that's contained within the pages of each book and the larger-than-life imaginations of a range of top celebrity presenters. In these short films specially made for schools, we learn how these celebrities discovered books, what reading means to them and why they love to dive into a good story.
From comedies like Nelly the Monster Sitter, through to action in Jamie Johnson: The Kick Off, and voyages into the amazing words and worlds of Benjamin Zephaniah, Jacqueline Wilson and Anthony Horowitz, the series touches on the huge range of reading experiences available to young people. It also encourages viewers to explore and develop their own taste in books.
