My thoughts and advise for this weeks newsletter is about Celebrating World Book Day, celebrating those wonderful stories that so many have written from Harry Potter to Bridget Jones, to Charles Dickens.
Some wonderful tales of the happy and unhappy times. Who can forget The Midnight Garden, with Tom who discovers after he hears the old fashion clock discovers a magical garden.
Then there is Oliver Twist who gets abducted by Fagin, and a Christmas classic a Christmas Carole with scrooge, bar-humbug.
At my son's school they were celebrating the Jungle Book, which is a classic and tells a story of a young boy who is bought up in the Jungle and looked after by a cuddly brown bear.
Books are wonderful because they take you to a different world and so many films and TV programmes like Lord of the Rings, True Blood and Games of Thrones have all stemmed from someones imagination, or even those wonderful True Stories like Wild. This story is by Cheryl Strayed who took on the Crest Trail in America facing many climates and meeting various types of people on the way.
The greatest thing is that books after everything will never go out of fashion and will always be a fantastic read.
Encourage children to read as it is a wonderful skill and there are so many stories that one will always tell.
Please comment below of your favourite books and what books you celebrated this year I would love to find out.
Many thanks for reading,
