One of Pennac’s Rights of the Reader is to be able to dip in to a book! This is certainly true about non fiction titles- they don’t need to be read cover to cover or in one sitting. They can sit there and be dipped into whenever the mood strikes you. I tend to keep a few on my bedside table for those “dippable” moments. Children appreciate the options that a non fiction book offers, and these are among the best!

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!
