Reading is Relaxing!

As each of these books arrived, I felt they all immediately said “relaxation” and felt they would make a lovely blog about how Reading is Relaxing.

As the half term break arrives, I am so pleased to be able to spend time reading and listening to these books. From slow journeys to being mindful of nature and from classical music to ballet at the theatres, these all promote the finer things in life, the things we don’t always have time for during the working week.

I can’t recommend these enough for school libraries or class reading corners.
