    Reading for pleasure is central to children’s learning in literacy and beyond – and you are a role model for the children you teach.

    This conference will encourage you to reflect on your own reading practices as well as considering how you will inspire children as readers and writers through promoting reading for pleasure.

    Anne and Josh are happy to sign copies of their books and there will be a range of children’s books on sale from the university bookshop
