Work With Me

Grow A Bookworm


Who am I?


I’m Thomas, a teacher, a parent, a bookworm and blogger from Cambridgeshire. With experience as a teaching assistant, teacher, Special Educational Needs Coordinator,  Senior Leader and more than five years of experience as a parent, I offer a unique skill set to brands and organisations interested in reaching an audience of parents and bookworms.

Grow a Bookworm is a growing brand offering support to parents of early and developing readers.




Who is my audience?


As Grow a Bookworm, I write to appeal to parents aged 25 to 40 who have children in Preschool, Foundation Stage or Key Stage One. This is designed to give them the confidence and specialist knowledge to provide their children with effective reading support.  My approach is to first impart a love of reading to both parents and children and support reading development once they are fully engaged.  See Grow a Bookworm’s guiding principles here.







How to Grow a Bookworm receives most visits from users in the United Kingdom.






Grow a Bookworm is currently working with Cambridgeshire libraries to deliver support for parents of young readers.  I support libraries by delivering interactive sessions to teach key strategies to parents of young readers.




My materials have been used across a range of schools and libraries to promote a love of books as crucial to a child’s reading development.




What Can I Offer During Partnerships?


Grow a Bookworm is looking to work in collaboration with both new and established brands who are looking to engage parents of young readers.


I am always interested in brands who are developing goods specifically for parents to support their children’s reading as well as brands who are keen to share books with children and their parents.




If we were to work together, I can offer the following:


Social media coverage

Blog posts

Photo and video content

Brand Ambassadorship

Competitions and giveaways

Parent Support Sessions

Interactive sessions to build up parental confidence to support their child’s reading. A look at the parent’s role in their child’s reading journey and how reading is taught in schools. Can be tailored to suit your needs.
