Sarah Fitzgerald, aged 13 from Kinsale, is thrilled to be chosen to be one of the Toy Testers on the famous Late Late Toy Show 2017.
She is reading many great books which she will review on the show. A voracious reader, this is a dream come true for Sarah.
Now a 2nd year student at Kinsale Community School, Sarah has written children’s books for Ronald McDonald House at aged 7. She is also partaking in the BT Young Scientist Exhibition which takes place in January on a subject very close to her heart - young people and reading.
The title of her project is " A Statistical Investigation into the decline of reading among Ireland's Youth and how we can prevent this from impacting future generations". A topic which is raising great interest among some renowned children’s book authors who have been in contact with Sarah to offer their kind help.
She is looking for some help from young people to complete her surveys as part of her research and would be delighted to hear from any children who have an interest in books and reading.
