A Patron of Reading is an author or illustrator who works with a school to encourage reading for pleasure. You can find out more about the scheme here.
I am currently Patron of Reading for Sacred Heart Primary School in Barrow, Cumbria. I work with the librarian, Ms Needham, to help pupils find books they love reading. One of the ways I do this is by setting reading challenges.
The current reading challenge is to:
Read a book that involves winter, snow or ice.
Write a paragraph to describe what you liked about the story or draw a picture inspired by the book!
I look forward to hearing what pupils love about these books, and other wintery stories they find in the library!
