Bring back story time

The former children’s laureate, Michael Morpurgo, has called on the Government to reinstate story time in all schools, saying children need time in the day for reading and quiet contemplation. His words were reported in The Telegraph today and were spoken at the opening of the wonderful Brackenbury Primary School Library. At this school in West London a bunch of mums got together to raise money and build a superb new library where there had been none. Give a Book is delighted to have been able to help put books on their shelves in this excellent project and congratulate them on their achievement.
