The Guardian has a fun article showing us what some star footballer liked to read when they were younger and now.
I'm wondering if the squirrel saved by the poolman also ended up with super powers like Ulysses did in the highly entertaining and unique book Flora & Ulysses by Kate DiCamillo. Give it read - it's a lovely book - borrow it now.
Also by Kate DiCamillo:
After watching this inspirational Kid President video the amazing students in Room 18 decided they had to make their own and convince me to buy this book for their library.
Room 18 - I am truly impressed with your efforts and conviction and because you made me laugh I have already ordered this book for you. Only 88 days to go before it is out! Sigh!
To finish off a week of book Blind Dates and Speed Dating sessions and a raft of Shelfies (see home page) students and staff at Raroa dressed up as book characters to help celebrate Raroa Book Week. Good work fictional characters - although there was far too much unforgivable cursing (Harry Potter style not the #@*%#*? sort) going on in the library than was healthy!
And here's Gus, keeping up the amazing tradition of dogs with great literacy skills at Raroa Intermediate (or is he doing maths?). Go Gus!
Look what Mr Tilley was doing on his holiday - relaxing and reading a really cool book. We are really lucky to have great reading role models at Raroa. Ask your teacher what they read over the school holiday break - it might be the same book you read!
Some of Raroa's readers talked about their favourite reads. Can I just say - they are all great reads. Try them out yourselves.
The Animal Rescue League of Berks County, Pennsylvania has a winning programme - pet therapy from children in the form of reading aloud. Sounds like a "Win Win" to me!
