The right not to finish a book.... and lots of other statements to think about so we can make sure children see reading as a wonderful thing in itself not just because they are going to race through a scheme or answer questions on it.
As a grown up do you answer questions after every book you read? Imagine if you did? Would you enjoy reading? Where did that come from.......if it puts you off it'll put them off too.
It's our job to instill a love of books in every primary school child. It actually says so-no arguing, no messing around. So why do you read? If you haven't had that discussion in school yet or even if you have it might be worth asking regularly to help us develop those emotional responses and a true love of reading.
PS the quote at the top is a rather lovely one isn't it-wonder where that's from? Hmmmmm. You might be surprised and because it's from there (CLUE) it's statutory to develop a love of reading NOT just teach children to read.
