Our Favourite Books from the Last Term

Hi everyone!  Jump on and discuss your favourite books from Term 1.

I've added a link to a British newspaper that has provided lists of recommended books for children.  These lists have been created by some famous authors you may know and like.

How many of their recommended books have you read so far?  Join the discussion and let us know.

More Followers and Websites

Hi everyone. I'm having a great time reading about your favourite books. I've sorted out the comment issues and will always post a reply to any comments you have made, so don't forget to check back and respond. :-)
It's also fantastic to see that we are getting more and more followers on this blog! Very exciting. Can we get to 100 before the end of the term????
I will begin to add some interesting websites to the blog for you. These will be authors' websites, where you might be able to 'talk to an author', book websites that recommend books for you, games, discussions and many more. If you find some great sites, or already know of some, or would like me to find some for you, please email them to me:

Comment Issues

Hi everyone. There is a little hiccup when I try to reply to your comments. A wee glitch in the system!
I will try to sort this out. Please know that I am reading your comments though.
Sarah, a great comment on the Secret Seven books. This is a series I loved as a child. I loved the
adventure and thought the characters were fantastic.

Introducing Literature Circles

I have had one of the best days ever! Today I was very lucky to be able to go round most of our classrooms and introduce the Literature Circles programme to the children. I was so impressed and overwhelmed by your enthusiasm and love of books.
Make sure that you come and tell me about the books you are reading and give me ideas for other books and series that we can buy, even better - add your thoughts to the blog! I would love to read your ideas and comments and I will always respond to your comments.
Keep up the enthusiasm and love of reading - it is something you can have as a wonderful hobby all your lives. :-)
Thank you for letting me come into your classrooms.
