The School Librarian is the journal of the School Library Association. Now, I’m guessing that school librarians know a thing or two when it comes to books for children. So I was thrilled to read their review of my book Flying High! in their Summer 2018 issue. The words ‘you’re going to love this book’ caught my attention straightaway! But I was particularly interested in what the reviewer (Rachel Clarke) had to say at the end of the review:
‘Its manageability makes it a worthwhile investment for pupils who are reluctant to read or who are only just beginning to read independently.’
I included the key information in the book in bullet points so all readers could get to the meat quickly, without being bogged down in padding. But I’m pleased to see that professionals feel this format will be particularly useful for reluctant readers. If we can engage them, then that could be the start of a lifetime’s unreluctant reading! And if I played a part in that, that would make me very happy indeed.
