With Children’s Book Week approaching (4-10 October), children are being encouraged all over the country to read more. They will be getting involved in inspiring events such as dressing up as book characters at school and writing competitions – but will it actually improve their reading?
A unique service, www.readingchest.co.uk, recently launched by Liz Walker, former teacher & Mum of 3 could be the perfect launching ground for many young readers.
Reading Chest is a book rental service for children specialising in reading scheme books for 4 to 9 year olds. It works along similar lines to DVD rental companies. By paying a monthly membership fee, books tailored to your child’s needs are delivered to your door.
