Beeston Book Day – Reading for Pleasure

Why not have a book day in November?  A perfect start to the second half of term when the Norfolk Children’s Book Centre descended on the Link and magically turned it into a book shop for the day, bringing with them several hundred books – fiction, non -fiction and poetry.  An amazing range of titles suitable from Year 3 to Year 8.  Each year group, together with their English teacher, spent time browsing the books before making an informed decision to buy.  We are enormously fortunate to have the Norfolk Children’s Book Centre ‘on our doorstep.’  Their breadth of knowledge of children’s books is second to none.

Our Pre-Prep popped in after lunch for some stories and were lucky enough to hear, amongst others, ‘Oi Duck-billed Platypus!’ which is the latest in the ‘Oi Frog’ series of amusing books.  A firm favourite with the younger children (and the librarian).
