Children do better when they read more. Having access to a choice of things to read and opportunities to read makes it so much more likely that they will read. We’ll share dozens of ideas for creating excitement around books in the coming weeks, for now though here is just one.
Groups taking part in Reading is Braw will be leaving books in public places where someone can pick them up, read them and then share them again. Inside we’ll leave a message encouraging people to read the book and pass it on. We’ll also ask them to let us know where the book has gone by commenting on this blog or by tweeting us at our Twitter account @reading_is_braw.
Already one book as been taken to New York, USA and we are all hoping it is found by someone who will get in touch.
So, if you see a book around Wallyford, Whitecraig or Musselburgh feel free to send it on an adventure – but don’t forget to read it first!
