Each week every child at our school has the opportunity to visit the school library whether it be during their class borrowing time or one lunch time when the library is open.
The books inside the library give each and every child the opportunity to visit a new world, walk alongside a new character or think completely differently to they ever have before.
So can these stories help us change the world? Of course they can!
Every book you read to your child, or they read to themselves helps them to look outside their own world.
Every time we laugh at a story we see how humour can help change the world for the better.
Every time we cry in a story we realise how precious our own lives are and how we can help others to be just as lucky.
Every time we look up something because we wondered about it after reading a story, we learn what is going on in our world.
Stories can help us change the world so encourage your child to keep on reading, read widely and read for a change.
I couldn’t agree more!
And often, the school library is also a safe haven for children at lunchtime, or a place to escape temperature extremes.
And I love that libraries seem to have lost that ‘shushing’ mentality, and that children are welcomed with open arms.
