Recently there has been a lot of discussion around books that are perfect for whole school assemblies. I have been working with a few schools in developing their assemblies based around special events in the year, keeping in mind that children should see themselves in books as well as being able to see others in new ways. The books in this blog post will be shared with a school who will share these in assemblies, classrooms and the library!

I am a primary school teacher, turned librarian. Now I have the title Reading Advocate for ASSET Education Trust, based in Suffolk.
I read constantly and have more books than bookshelves, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
I celebrate reading every day at work and at home with my two children, aged 11 and 9.
I sit on the National Executive Committee for the Federation of Children’s Book Groups and run an OU/UKLA Teachers as Readers group!
