Hello or bore da! I’m a primary school teacher from South Wales who loves to read.
I’m most often seen with a children’s book (or ten!) in hand, searching out the next new addition to read and recommend to my learners.
Every child should experience the self-discovery and joy of reading for pleasure, which means finding the right book for the right child. As a child myself, I didn’t read much fiction and favoured non-fiction instead. However, I think this could be explained because of the lack of choice, promotion and awareness of children’s literature compared to how it has vastly improved to today – fifteen years later.
This is my blog to help you as teachers and school staff to get to know the books that will help children discover a love of reading for themselves and hopefully spread wider the same effects on children that I have had in my classroom.
