Isn’t this the best thing ever? This is one of the many ideas of the genius staff at The District of CE Primary school in Newton-le-Willows where I’m Patron of Reading. They’ve jazzed up a small flight of steps with the spines of some of their favourite books, and I’m delighted to be included in amongst so many amazing writers. I think it’s such a clever idea, a simple reminder to the pupils as they move around the school about the importance of reading. I can’t wait to see it for myself when I visit there again in the new year!
