I have just returned from my local ‘poundshop’ with these 3 books in my bag, one of which is hard backed, for our school library. We already have a copy of Paddington in the Garden but the other two we didn’t have copies of and for only £1 each they are a bargain.
This got me thinking…we, like many other schools, have children who don’t read and don’t even own their own books. This proves that access to affordable books is not difficult. These books, along with many others, are pocket money value and well worth it. There are lots of other stores which offer bargain books – The Works to name but one, however, children who do not have readers around them or people who value books won’t think of spending their pocket money on these, such a shame!
