If I Ran the Country
With a long career in factual radio programming and podcasting, and now working in the role of Commissioning Editor – Factual, BBC Radio 4, Rich Knight is well-placed to write about politics for young readers.
If I Ran the Country starts from the premise that the reader is in a position to run the country and then takes them on a decision-making journey covering the key considerations that any political leader has to face.
Rich joined Nikki Gamble #InTheReadingCorner to delve into some of the themes that underpin the book.
