With today being World Book Day, I couldn't resist the invitation to pop along to my daughter’s school to read some extracts to the children.
I read an excerpt from Louis Sacher’s clever and insightful ‘Holes’. A wonderful story about friendship and a book I’d bought long before my daughter was even a twinkle in her father’s eye.
Then I went on to the Kindergarten to read what used to be my daughter’s favourite story.
The ability to lose ourselves in a book starts early and their enthusiasm was infectious.
And my favourite book?
And I was blown away by Victoria Parker’s début novel Princess in the Iron Mask.
A day dedicated to books? What more do we need?
