Jacqueline Wilson supports new schools web site

"Jacqueline WilsonI loved reading when I was at school, frequently racing through a book a day, but my choice of books was rather hit and miss. I started off with Louisa M.Alcott’s at the top of the shelf and worked my way round to Laura Ingalls Wilder’s at the other end of the library room, never quite knowing what I was doing. I was always in a rush and there weren’t even any comfy chairs in the library where you could curl up and browse. I often lugged books home to discover they weren’t my cup of tea at all.

Lovereading4schools.co.uk would have been an enormous help! It’s such an easy fun way to access heaps of suggestions for good reads. I love the way you can download extracts so you can see if a book appeals. It’s great that each school can have its own Homepage for special favourite books. So many parents will enjoy being involved. It’s a fantastic way to get as many child"ren as possible to love reading!
