The loss of once popular and effective strategies such as reading stories... and the sharing of complete novels with junior age children

Cid and Mo are experienced and knowledgeable children's authors and will advise staff about suitable fiction
A successful approach employed in some schools has been to appoint a reading advocate or coordinator
Will train a member of staff to become the Reading Allowed Coordinator. Their role will include the promotion of reading for pleasure in school and to develop their own knowledge of children's literature. The project will encourage them to network with other reading coordinators for advice and support
