Just received my copy of this book and I’m so excited by it!
It is collection of poems and stories to read aloud with a foreward by Michael Morpurgo.
In my experience children, especially in our school, love to listen to stories. I am still amazed at how still they sit when they come to the library for a story session, especially when it is something new. I feel the necessity for ‘A Little, Aloud’ reading club, with 64 extracts to choose from and a ‘Read On’ section at the end I am sure there will be plenty to get us started and continue with. May begin by advertising a session with a vote on a few choices based on snippets of text.
Watch this space, I’ll let you know how I get on.
