Reading, Celebrating and Dinner

07 Mar

1   As an English teacher, the love of books is deep within me. I grew up in a home where books lined almost every wall, 4000 at the last count, and went on to spend my teaching career sharing my love of words and literature with thousands of pupils, some of whom read this blog. Serendipitously, three things came to my attention today – a poem I have been looking for about the teaching of English literature, a passionate  blog about reading and children and this picture, celebrating reading. I’ll tell you more about the poem tomorrow.
