It may look bare at the moment (no pun on the first entry intended…) but I will here be posting (semi-)regular reviews of some of my favourite picture books, and how I think they can be used in the Primary School classroom. PLEASE NOTE: I am not an ‘expert’ on children’s books, and as a trainee I can’t really claim to be an expert at teaching either…so it’s not a brilliant start! But I am passionate about the value of children’s literature and picture books especially (see my reasons here), and so I invite you all to engage, critique, debate, downright berate (only if i REALLY get it wrong…) but most of all join me on my journey!
