I’ve always adored reading for as long as I can remember. Throughout my childhood the shelves in my bedroom were always full of books and I would read until late into the night. When I became a Primary school teacher, my love of reading children’s books grew and grew. Reading aloud to my classes has always been my favourite time in the school day and I thoroughly enjoy sharing those cliff-hanger moments, lough out loud moments and lump in the throat moments that a good book brings.
I really enjoy discovering new books and keeping my knowledge of children’s literature current so that I inspire and enthuse the young readers I work with. When I’m not reading, I’m usually talking about books! I love sharing my excitement around the book I’ve just read with family, friends and colleagues and taking recommendations from others. This is really how Primary Teacher Bookshelf was born; I wanted to create somewhere that I could share what I have read with other teachers, parents and of course…children!
I’ve taught across the primary age ranges, from nursery to year 6 and gradually, I will try to include a range of blog posts appropriate to different age ranges.
So browse the shelves in the menus above or click the categories below and hopefully you will discover more wonderful books!
