Welcome to Hookable Books!

A bit about me

Hi, thanks for visiting my blog. I’m going to try and do a little bio below but if you have further questions please do get in touch!

I’m Carrie, an English Literature and Spanish graduate and experienced primary school teacher.

End of 2020 – The start of Hookable Books

In 2020, I decided to be brave and left primary teaching, with no concrete plans. I still work in the education sector but I am no longer in the classroom.

In May 2020, I successfully Crowdfunded a project to send out free book boxes to schools. To help children talk about tricky topics like bereavement, to support their emotions and to read inspiring stories about confidence and resilience.

End of 2021: Book Boxes and something exciting coming soon!

I have now created a selection of book boxes, which are available for individuals or organisations to purchase. The shop will be coming soon. However, something else has been going on behind the scenes, so watch this space.
