Dr Janice Belgrave is a trained Primary School teacher with a Doctorate in Education, specialising in early literacy.
She currently works as a Resource Teacher of Literacy in Christchurch, New Zealand. In this role, she works with teachers and children to ensure those who are struggling, get the best possible learning experiences they can.
Part of this includes using quality picture books to teach vocabulary, story structure and comprehension to children. The inspiration for her books comes not only from her own animals and events, but from her passion and desire to create learning experiences that are fun and engaging for all tamariki.
