"A marvellous book of great practical value" – James Carter
The lack of interest in reading for pleasure amongst large numbers of primary age pupils, put off by ‘mechanical’ worksheet-driven approaches, is a cause for major concern amongst education professionals and parents. However, Inspiring Children to Read and Write for Pleasure from writer, journalist and education commentator Fred Sedgwick uses the context of literature to illuminate and inform the teaching of literacy in the primary classroom and inspire children to a love of books.
