My favourite book is ‘The Chronicles of Narnia.’ I liked the mythical/fantasy element of the story and the idea of an everyday object such as a wardrobe offering such adventure really sparked my imagination. I would say that these books have helped me to understand the world around me.
My Favourite children’s author is Rick Riordan. I love how he makes history relevant, funny, interesting and accessible. I also like how his stories prompt children to look at their own characteristics in another way.

My favourite children's book is "The Five minutes Peace' by Jill Murphy. It is so easy to read and I have enjoyed sharing these with my own children.
I can really connect with this story as the plot resonates with my own family life.

My favourite children’s book is….I am Malala because this graphic, non-fiction book tells the story of Malala Yousafzai, a young girl, who was shot by the Taliban whilst on the bus to her school. This story has been told to Year 4 children on two different occasions and the reactions of the children never ceases to amaze me. They are totally engrossed in the story, wanting to hear more each time and prompting classroom discussions about how she dealt with her life after her cruel ordeal.
My favourite children’s author is …. Jacqueline Wilson because I remember, when reading her books to my own daughters, how true to life she made the stories. She covered a whole range of everyday life subjects in the many books she wrote and although sometimes they were controversial, they made what could be an upsetting or difficult time for children more manageable.
