Never assume they won’t read.


It is all about finding the RIGHT book at the RIGHT  time for the Right child.  I was reminded of this recently when looking back at some of the things people have said to me over the years.

This was a lady who had attended a CPD session I had been running a few years ago and purchased a copy of my YA book SPIDER  for her grandson.  As you can see she was not really expecting him to read it.  I applaud her determination to offer him the chance.

‘My 15 year old grandson does not read books but, always the optimist, I bought him a copy of Spider. Imagine my surprise and speechlessness when two months later he informed his grandad ‘That book you gave me is awesome’ and proceeded to relate the story in detail. Thank you for making reading appealing enough to reach my grandson.’

It still warms my heart when I read this, it makes it all worthwhile.
