Today, we welcomed Raysa Farah into our school to read and talk about her new book as part of our World Book Day celebration. 
Raysa is a successful florist who has now written a story after her little boy was diagnosed with leukaemia.
'My little boy S'aad was diagnosed with ALL in Spring 2022 at the age of two. From this experience I have found strength in writing an empowerment book for children and their carers. I want to help empower young children to feel like they’ve got a voice. The book follows a lion cub who loses his big, wild mane after developing leukaemia, but shows bravery to continue being himself and not let his illness get him down'.

If you would like to order a copy of the book Raysa has offered a special price of £6.50, payment can be made through ParentPay.

Thank you, 
Mrs Wilkinson
