  1. This is great! Lots of children’s libraries snub the classics as being out of touch, too complicated and too wordy. But actually lots of these books have been made into popular films which helps children to have a preconceived idea of the storyline and follow the plot. Unless of course its the Hobbit, or the latest Alice in Wonderland! In which case they could be forgiven for thinking that they had picked up the wrong book!
    But I think that more than a handful of your readers will enjoy this selection and it will be great to add a bit of variety, not only will it make a difference to the type of books the children choose but to the writing style and quality they are reading, improving their reading skills all the time.
    Anyway, Treasure Island is still one of my favourites and I cant understand why any 9-11 yr old reading at a good level would not enjoy it!
    The display will really help get their interest and it looks great! I look forward to hearing about what happens with the classics in your library……
